The analysis of systemic tolerance elicited by antigen inoculation into the vitreous cavity: vitreous cavity-associated immune deviation.

The immune privilege that exists in the eye is maintained by various mechanisms. One of the best studied is a form of systemic tolerance termed anterior chamber-associated immune deviation (ACAID). We have investigated the mechanisms by which ocular inflammation associated with the vitreous cavity (VC) is reduced, by injecting either ovalbumin (OVA) or… CONTINUE READING
