The primary purpose of this volume on immune responses and the eye is to describe, explain and speculate on what is known and understood about the consequences of the eye-immune system compromise, from the eye's standpoint. The research of the last two decades of the 20th century has witnessed remarkable advances in knowledge of the physiology of ocular immune privilege. The chapters in this book address this body of knowledge, looking at information gained concerning the mechanisms responsible for ocular inflammation secondary to viral, autoimmune and other immunopathogenic processes. Also, an understanding of immune responses in normal and inflamed eyes is used to explain the immunologic processes involved in the growth of ocular tumours and in the success and failure of transplants of cornea and retina.
