Grand rounds will discuss both clinical and basic science investigations into the role of monocytes and macrophages in neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD). First, we will review clinical studies which demonstrate an association between complement, complement dysregulation on blood monocytes, and the importance of macrophages in neovascular AMD. Second, we will discuss basic science investigations which demonstrate the importance of macrophage origin and heterogeneity in experimental laser-induced choroidal neovascularization in mice.
