Abstract:
Purpose: Inflammation may play a role in the development of diabetic retinopathy (DR). Monocytes/macrophages have been implicated in the initiation of microvascular damage in diabetes. In addition, leukocytes from diabetes have been shown to have increased expression of adhesion molecules and greater adhesion to endothelial cells (EC). The aims of this study were to determine which leukocyte subsets were involved in the inflammatory response in DR and how.
