Altered chemokine profile associated with exacerbated autoimmune pathology under conditions of genetic interferon-gamma deficiency.


PURPOSE A prior study showed that mice deficient in IFN-gamma (GKO) are more susceptible to experimental autoimmune uveitis (EAU) than are wild-type (WT) mice. Histopathology of uveitic eyes revealed that the ocular infiltrate in GKO mice was dominated by neutrophils and eosinophils rather than by mononuclear cells, as in WT mice. The present study was… (More)
