Reconstituted epithelial tissues and native cornea: A comparison of the influence of surfactants on ocular permeability
The aim of this study was to prepare an artificial rabbit corneal epithelium (RRCE) to compare with a human corneal epithelial model and excised rabbit cornea through permeation studies to investigate differences of surfactants influence on ocular permeability of a lipophilic compound. First solubility assays with different surfactants were performed and the integrity of the RRCE was assessed by measuring transepithelial electrical resistance (TEER). The permeation parameters showed that the RRCE was more sensitive than native cornea and human cornal epithelial model to the effect of permeation enhancers.
