We determined normal aqueous and vitreous lysozyme levels in rabbit eyes and induced experimental uveitis to record the uppermost aqueous and vitreous lysozyme levels. The normal aqueous humor of the rabbit eye contained 1.05 mug per milliliter lysozyme and the normal vitreous humor contained 0.45 mug per milliliter. After the intravitreal administration of a foreign protein, the aqueous and vitreous lysozyme levels rose within one day, reaching maximum values of 38.4 mug per milliliter and 114 mug per milliliter, respectively, at 14 days, and subsequently declining to minimal values by 28 days after injection.
