Grewal Eye Institute (GEI), India was awarded as the first medical institute in world to conduct the Ologen Implant study successfully. GEI was awarded at The 5-day World Ophthalmology Congress (WOC) 2008 in Hong Kong.
On return to the country GEI has announced it at the press confernce in Chandigrah. Speaking to the madia, the lead researchers of the study said that the study is based on the Ologen Biodegradable Collagen Matrix Impalnt in ‘Phacoemulsification combined with Trabeculectomy (Phaco-Trab). The title of the study is Adjunctive Use of Biodegradable Porous Collagen-Glycosaminoglycan Implant in Phaco-Emulsification combined with Trabeculectomy for Surgical Management of Primary Open Angle Glaucoma.
This collagen implant improves the remodeling of the regenerating tissues and prevents scar formation. Ologen Collagen Matrix induces the fibroblasts to grow randomly, and leads to the wound healing normally. The collagen's porous structure can work as reservoir, a buffering system, and controlled drainage.
Dr Grewal of the GEI expressed his pleasure on the success and also thanked the successful researchers. He also speaks of his future plans and activities. He said, "It is a matter of great pride & honour for us to be at the forefront of revolutionary research work in the international arena and to be the flag-bearers for our country at highly prestigious platforms like the WOC."
The GEI is the eye instiute with facilities at Chandigarh & Panchkula, and also the world's fourth JCI accredited apart from being India's first ISO 9001:2000 certified eye care hospital chain. The GrewalBSc (Hons) Group also offers India's first professional degree course in Ophthalmic Techniques under the GEI School of Optometry.
