          Human corneal endothelial cells (HCEC) were isolated from excised corneas of adult donors in the age range of 28–70 years, and successfully grown for 10–12 passages. Moreover, one cell line, that had been established from a 45-year-old donor, was further passaged at defined split ratios in order to determine the proliferative life span of the HCEC isolated from donors of this age group.
