Abstract: CsA formulated in migliol oil delayed corneal rejection onset, but blood levels were evident in this group. CsA loaded-nanocapsules showed no effect on rejection and the drug was not detectable in blood. These data, along with the current concepts on corneal graft rejection immunology, suggest that the immunomodulatory effect of topical CsA in the prevention of corneal graft rejection may be systemically-mediated.
