Although production of specific Ab is a critical element of host defense, the presence of Ab in tissues leads to formation of immune complexes, which can trigger a type III Arthus reaction. Our studies on a mouse model of river blindness showed that Ab production is essential for recruitment of neutrophils and eosinophils to the cornea and for development… CONTINUE READING
