Ocular Surface, Ocular Immunology and Inflammation

The ocular surface is continuously exposed to environmental agents such as allergens, pollutants, and microorganisms, which could provoke inflammation. However, an array of anatomical, physiological, and immunological features of the ocular surface conspire to limit corneal inflammation and endow the eye with immune privilege. A remarkable example of ocular immune privilege is the success of corneal allografts, which unlike all other forms of organ transplantation, survive without the use of systemic immunosuppressive drugs or MHC matching. 

The latest research into the basic mechanisms of ocular inflammation and new insights into the diagnosis and treatment of uveitis as well as inflammation of the cornea, retina and optic nerve.
