Changes in the permeability of the hemato-ophthalmic barrier in adrenalectomized animals

In experiments on cats and rats, a study was made of the effect produced by adrenalectomy on the penetration and distribution and radiophosphorus in the eye tissues. It was found that acute adrenal insufficiency is accompanied by a considerable rise in the permeability of the hemato-ophthalmic barrier to p32. Under these conditions, there was a tendency toward obliteration of the normal differences in the sorptive properties of the different structural elements of the eye. The data presented indicate the participation of the adrenal gland hormones in regulating the permeability of the vessels and tissues of the eye.
