PURPOSE To investigate the profile of cytokines in tear fluid of patients after allogeneic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT) and determine their relation to the presence and manifestations of ocular graft-versus-host disease (GvHD). METHODS In this cross sectional study tear fluid was collected in 34 consecutive adult patients that previously underwent(More)
Birdshot chorioretinopathy (BSCR) is a bilateral chronic intraocular inflammation or posterior uveitis that preferentially affects middle-aged Caucasians. BSCR is characterized by distinctive multiple choroidal hypopigmented lesions in combination with retinal vasculitis and vitritis, and the extraordinary feature that virtually all patients are HLA-A29(More)
PURPOSE To determine the cytokine response to ocular lysates of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) from patients with birdshot chorioretinopathy (BSCR). METHODS In the PBMCs of 19 patients with BSCR, T cell cytokine production in response to human retina and choroid lysates was analyzed with flow cytometry and compared to the responses against(More)
