Example text

Importantly, no deposits were found in any of the control mice. These results indicate that ApoE3Leiden mice can be used as an animal model for the pathogenesis of basal laminar deposits and that a HF-C diet enhances the accumulation process. Furthermore, this study supports the previously suggested involvement of dysfunctional ApoE in the accumulation of extracellular deposits in the human disease (45,46). ■■ ApoB100 transgenic mice: ApoB100 is the major apolipoprotein in LDL cholesterol. Lipoprotein particles in the BM have been shown to contain ApoB100.

Chapter 2 Animal Models for Age-Related Macular Degeneration 21 exhibited changes to the BM and had increased basal laminar deposits (25,99). Plus, several mice exhibit invasion of the choriocapillaris into the BM suggestive of early AMD. Wild-type mice treated with hydroquinone in their drinking water develop decreased expression of Ccl-2 in the RPE and choroid and demonstrated altered ratios of proangiogenic VEGF versus antiangiogenic pigment epithelium-derived factor (PEDF) (100). Therefore, it was hypothesized that hydroquinone may raise the risk of CNV by disturbing the normal balance between angiogenic factors.

Chapter 2 Animal Models for Age-Related Macular Degeneration 25 have an important quantitative component, care must be taken during processing so that pathology of each laser site can be correlated with its in vivo angiographic progression. Histochemical visualization and immunochemical methods using antibodies may contribute in detecting endothelial cells and thereby neoformed vessels (187,191). However, histologic examinations are overall demanding and timeconsuming processes, which may be also limited by the technical difficulty to achieve adequate sampling, as was previously mentioned.
