The authors studied the reaction of the rabbit cornea after interlamellar transplantation of the acellular stroma of the human cornea. During 10 days' observation the inflammatory reaction as well as signs of transplant rejection was absent. The histoarchitectonics of the recipient cornea and implant structure was preserved.
