Abstract

A modified technique for subchoroidal transplantation of amelanotic Greene melanoma cells and the intraocular growth patterns of this tumor in rabbit eyes are described. Tumor fragments were implanted via a scleral tunnel in 71 rabbit eyes, with 64 successful tumor growths, producing a prominent, circumscribed choroidal mass within 12-14 days of surgery. Choroidal Greene melanoma in rabbits resembles human epitheloid uveal melanoma in both its growth patterns and morphologic characteristics. The authors' implantation technique guarantees reliable growth of choroidal tumors with easily reproducible size and location. The experimental choroidal melanoma model is particularly valuable in clinical studies where a large number of tumors, with limited variation, is necessary for different experimental groups.
