Macrophages have long been known to play a major role in the pathogenesis of proliferative vitreoretinal disorders. Using the monoclonal antibodies EBM11 (pan macrophage), 27E10 (early inflammatory stage marker), and RM3/1 (healing phase marker), different subpopulations of macrophages were differentiated in surgically removed membranes from patients with macular pucker (n = 6), proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) following rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (n = 11), traumatic PVR (n = 19… CONTINUE READING
