Sites and Functions of the Blood-Retinal Barriers

  • Jose Cunha-Vas

Abstract

Studies on the blood-brain relationship have yielded evidence that the rates of exchange and the concentrations in the brain at steady state for many substances are quite different from those in other organs. These differences reflect a distinct set of permeability characteristics at the blood-brain interface, thus originating the concept of a blood-brain barrier (BBB).
