Abstract

Chronic viral keratitis and a variety of ophthalmic disorders were studied with respect to the role of cell-mediated immunity in their pathogenesis. Lymphocyte stimulation, as measured by increased protein synthesis, was the screening test utilized. Neither viral nor ocular antigens led to stimulation, even when the patient's cells showed increased protein synthesis when stimulated with the antigen, phytohemagglutinin.
