They found that within three to six days, beta-amyloid proteins secreted by the neurons began to accumulate in the endothelial tissue, which led the cells to become leakier.
Recent studies suggest that near anatomic replacement of endothelial tissue (DMEK) produces improved visual acuity results compared to Descemet Stripping Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSEK).

Owing to the fact that the patients retain their own endothelial tissue, the recovery period is generally shorter than that of a PK and visual rehabilitation can commence six months following surgery.
In addition to diapedesis, it has been proposed that an immune response in situ that favors preservation or mediates endothelial injury might exist in endothelial tissue. MIEC from C57/BL56 mice mediated the transmigration of Ly6CLo monocytes to affected tissues in response to the toll-like receptor- (TLR-) 4 ligands as lipopolysaccharide (LPS), while TLR-7 ligands (resiquimod) induced the intravascular retention of those monocytes promoting endothelial damage [25].
Assays without endothelial tissue were also performed.
