The laboratory has published 7 articles in peer-reviewed journals. The work at the laboratory for research purposes is supported by multiple agencies, both government and private. As part of patient care, till date we have done 57 clinical trials, in that 37 LSCT cases and 20 COMET cases. Total number of Human amniotic membranes processed is 327, and 185 processed amniotic membranes were used by doctors for surgeries.
