Experimental autoimmune uveoretinitis (EAU) and pinealitis induced by an interphotoreceptor retinoid-binding protein (IRBP)-derived peptide (R4) was serially transferred into naive recipient rats, using spleen cells from recipients of previous "orders" of transfer. The cells initiating the disease in recipients of the first order were either lymph node cells from rats immunized against peptide R4, or lymphocytes of a cell line specific toward this peptide. The serial transfer was successfully carried out through as many as four orders of sequential recipients.
