Progress in Retinal Research has become established as an excellent source of information in which the interested reader will find comprehensive articles illustrating "the trends and directions followed by research on the retina." Volume 8, which is deservedly dedicated to Prof Tsuneo Tomita in celebration of his 80th birthday, maintains this standard of excellence. Several main themes are particularly well represented in volume 8, reporting on areas in which many contributions have been made in recent years. Three chapters are devoted to applications of immunological techniques to retinal research. The chapter by Fry and Lam discusses cell-specific mono-clonal antibodies, which represent essential probes for studies of retinal organization and development, and possibly also pathologic findings. The chapter by Molday reviews a more molecular application of monoclonal antibody technology, illustrated by the characterization of rhodopsin and other photoreceptor proteins. Finally, the article by Shinohara et al addresses immunopathology of the retina,
