Interocular protein transfer was demonstrated after intravitreal injection of isotopically labeled bovine serum albumin into one eye of rabbits. The transfer of the trace molecule occurs by a nonhematogenous pathway. These experiments indicate that cerebrospinal fluid route and/or the ipsilateral optic nerve-chiasm-contralateral optic nerve are probably not the pathway mediating nonhematogenous interocular protein transfer.
