Abstract

The degree of chemotactic activity of the aqueous humor for a specific type of inflammatory cell is in direct proportion to the extent of such cells infiltrating the aqueous humor of rabbits with either primary or secondary experimental herpes simplex uveitis. Chemotaxis may thus be a contributing factor in the pathogenesis of herpetic uveitis.
