Effects of surface modification of intraocular lenses on foreign body reaction



Effects of surface modification of intraocular lenses on foreign body reaction



Nippon Ganka Gakkai Zasshi 109(5): 267-273



In order to improve biocompatibility, we investigated the effects of surface modification by 2-methacryloyloxyethyl phosphorylcholine (MPC) on the foreign body reaction of intraocular lens (IOLs). Materials of the IOLs were polymethylmethacrylate, hydrophobic acryl, and MPC surface-modified hydrophobic IOLs (MPC modified acryl). In an in vitro study, cultured macrophages sampled from mouse intra-abdominal exudate were cultured on a plate for each IOL material. The cell density and morphology of attached cells on the IOL materials were investigated. In an in vivo study, each IOL material was implanted in the peritoneal space of mice and foreign body reaction was investigated with a light microscope and a scanning electron microscope. In the in vitro study, the cells on the MPC modified acryl IOL material were remarkably fewer than those on the plates of the other two IOL materials. Regarding the implanted IOL matrevials, MPC modified acryl IOL material showed more polynuclear giant foreign body cells in the early period than the other two IOL materials. MPC surface modification can reduce the foreign body reaction of IOLs and has the potential to improve biocompatibility of IOL materials.
