Cp Heph Knockout Mice Iron overload, observed in these transgenic mice, causes AMD-like alterations. The mice developed funduscopically evident lesions at the level of the RPE, and 100% of the mice developed histologically identified subretinal neovascularization, although it is not apparent if the neovascularization arose from the retina or choroid (91). Furthermore, the mice do not appear to develop the drusen-like or basal laminar deposit-like lesions as seen in AMD. Spontaneous Bst Chromosome 16 Mutant An angiogenic phenotype has been described in Bst/+ mice that is age related and clinically evident and resembles human CNV.

In particular, the fact that C3-overexpressing animals demonstrated an unexpectedly high incidence of retinal detachments (a feature not shared with AMD) raises question about its similarity to the actual disease. Plus, it is unknown whether or not the mere activity of the transfected adenovirus could contribute to the pathologic features, thereby biasing the results. C3a and C5a Receptor Both C3 and C5 have been found in drusen (39,135). Although these proteins are best known for their role in opsonization and formation the membrane attack complex, their activity is multifaceted.

Saishin et al. (219) used a laser to create defects in the BM in the pig eye and establish histologic evidence of CNV in 100% of lesions. Image analysis of histologic sections was used to evaluate drug delivery for the treatment of the CNV. Kiilgaard et al. studied xenon laser versus diode laser versus mechanical disruption of the BM in a pig model of CNV. The authors found histopathologic evidence of CNV in 54%, 83%, and 100% of the animals, respectively (236). The pig eye is approximately the same size as the human eye, and the retina vascularization is similar to the human.
