• After the intracorneal injection of rabbit eyes with bovine γ-globulin, the subconjunctival administration of a corticosteroid in either the ipsilateral or contralateral eye resulted in essentially the same changes: a reduction in the number of antibody-forming cells in the draining lymph nodes and a reduction in the ocular inflammatory response.
