Bacillus cereus-induced permeability of the blood-ocular barrier during experimental endophthalmitis.

PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine to what extent blood-retinal barrier (BRB) permeability occurred during experimental Bacillus cereus endophthalmitis and whether tight junction alterations were involved in permeability. METHODS Mice were intravitreally injected with 100 colony-forming units of B. cereus, and eyes were analyzed at… (More)
