    Resident and infiltrated macrophages play relevant roles in uveitis as effectors of innate immunity and inductors of acquired immunity. They are major effectors of tissue damage in uveitis and are also considered to be potent antigen-presenting cells. In the last few years, experimental animal...

    IL-17-producing CD4+ T helper 17 (Th17) cells are pathogenic in a range of human autoimmune diseases and corresponding animal models. We now demonstrate that such T cells infiltrating the target organ during the induction of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) and experimental...

    IL-17-producing CD4+ T cells, so called Th17 cells, constitute a newly identified inflammatogenic cell population, which is critically involved in some inflammatory diseases. To explore the role of Th17 cells in murine experimental autoimmune uveoretinitis (EAU), a model of human autoimmune...

    Experimental autoimmune uveoretinitis (EAU) in mice is a model for human autoimmune uveitis. Longitudinal follow-up is only possible by non-invasive techniques, but the information obtained by visual fundus examination can be limited. We therefore evaluated the efficacy of optical coherence...

    Experimental autoimmune uveoretinitis (EAU) is a T cell-mediated autoimmune disease of posterior uvea that closely resembles a human disease. The uveitogenic effector T cell has a Th1-like phenotype [high interferon-γ (IFN-γ), low interleukin-4 (IL-4)], and genetic susceptibility to EAU...

    Background We previously reported that the peripheral regulatory T cells (pTregs) generated 'on-demand' in the retina were crucial to retinal immune privilege, and in vitro analysis of retinal dendritic cells (DC) showed they possessed antigen presenting cell (APC) activity that promoted...
