Oral administration of the uveitogenic peptide (aa 336-351) derived from human HSP60 induced clinical and histological manifestations of uveitis in 65.8% (48/73) of Lewis rats. Uveitis was significantly decreased to 16.7% (11/66) in parallel experiments with the peptide linked to recombinant cholera toxin B subunit (rCTB), also given by mouth (x(2) = 34.2, p
