Abstract

The eye has long been considered an immune privileged site, along with the brain, gravid uterus and testis. The aim of this study is to develop a novel methodology for investigating the interactions between implanted biomaterials and an immune privileged site via testing in the "anterior chamber of rabbit eyes" model. A series of ophthalmic parameters derived from this model were designed to evaluate the functionality of a specific biomaterial applied in such region. From our experimental paradigm of gelatin, the feasibility of this potential testing method was validated.
