Immunsystemet og øjet.

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

The special relationship between the eye and the immune system rests on a number of anatomical, physiological and immunological mechanisms. These mechanisms prevent the delicate structures of the eye from potentially damaging immunogenic inflammation while protecting against pathogens. Rather than inflammation, antigen induces a form of systemic and antigen-specific immunological tolerance. Owing to its systemic nature, this tolerance may be utilised to achieve successful treatment of immunological disorders.
