Recommendation ID

NICE recommended that further research should be designed to generate robust evidence of the clinical- and cost-effectiveness of Holoclar for treating both eyes in people with bilateral limbal stem cell deficiency after eye burns if they do not have enough tissue for a conjunctival limbal autograft. The study should recruit people with bilateral disease and evaluate the effectiveness of treatment in both eyes. Outcomes should include transplant success and assessments of health-related quality of life using a generic preference-based measure.
