Immunization using the anterior segment as the afferent phase of a primary immune response arc results in a unique generation ofimmunologic effectors. Immunization as with lens protein or other auto antigens through the anterior chamber does not 36 . Intraocular Inflammation and Uveitis result in the same pattern of systemic immunity as does immunization by skin. Immunization by an anterior chamber injection in experimental animals results in an altered form of systemic immunity to that antigen called anterior chamber-associated immune deviation (ACAID).
