Example text

Initially primates were the most extensively studied since their physiology and anatomy most closely resembles that of the human. Subsequently, investigators sought out other subjects that are smaller, easier to handle, and more affordable. Hence, the animal disease model has been extended from the primate to the rabbit, cat, pig, rat, mouse, chicken chorioallantoic membrane, and, most recently, endothelial cells in tissue culture. An ideal or perfect animal model does not exist for AMD given its clinical complexity and lack of knowledge of its cause, genetic link, and pathomechanism.

One of the newest models for AMD is an in vitro tissueculture model. Renno et al. have demonstrated the use of cultured bovine retinal capillary endothelial and retinal pigment epithelial cells to study the effects of angiostatin and PDT (106). Bovine retinal capillary endothelial cells were used as a representative capillary endothelial line of the posterior segment. Tissue culture is thought to represent proliferating tissue/endothelium and may provide a useful disease model. SUMMARY Several animal models have been reviewed for both exudative and dry AMD.
