For this purpose, a defined dose of the test substance is applied to the chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) of fertilized and incubated hen’s eggs. The CAM is a complete tissue containing arteries, veins and capillaries, and is technically easy to study. It responds to injury with an inflammatory process similar to what one would observe in the conjunctival tissue of a rabbit’s eye. Its well- developed vascularization provides an ideal model for ocular irritation studies. view less
