Abstract: Our data indicate that RMEC grown on polycarbonate filters form a restrictive monolayer of cells, which exhibit dynamic alterations in response to pharmacological agents, thus demonstrating an in vitro model of the BRB. Future studies with the model may offer insights into the pathogenesis of retinal vascular diseases and allow convenient testing of pharmacological interventions.
