Corneal Xenotransplantation

IXA has worked closely with WHO and various national regulatory bodies to establish detailed recommendations regarding safe, scientifically and ethically reasonable conditions that should be met in order to undertake a corneal xenotransplantation clinical trial.

An initial consensus statement on conditions for undertaking clinical trials of corneal xenotransplantation was published in Xenotransplantation in 2014. It is expected that this initial consensus statement will be revised over time in response to scientific advances in the field, and changes in the regulatory framework based on accumulating clinical experience.
