Retinopathy Following Intravitreal Injection of Mice with MHV Strain JHM
The causes of many human degenerative and inflammatory diseases of the retina are unknown. Some are genetic in origin; others are preceded by viral infections (Ryan and Maumenee, 1972; Annesley et al., 1973; Fitzpatrick and Robertson, 1973; Bos and Deutman, 1975; Wright et al., 1978). These diseases are difficult to study since eye tissue from patients is rarely available. Thus, animal models are considered useful for understanding their pathogenesis.
