The origin of the macrophages which appear in the subretinal space after laser photocoagulation on the rat retina was investigated using immunohistochemistry. The majority of macrophages located in laser lesions were found to be positive to staining for the specific rat monocyte/macrophage marker (ED1). The number of macrophages and activated macrophages were abundant after intense laser photocoagulation in which choroidal neovascularization was induced. After the retinal pigment epithelium… CONTINUE READING
