As mentioned, immune complexes can bind to tissue antigens, as in the kidney (an organ particularly prone to this type of immune-mediated damage), or to the vascular endothelium of many organs. With the fixing of complement, chemotactic factors could be released and neutrophils are attracted and activated. During this process they will release enzymes, which can degrade both proteins and collagen. This immune response will leave tissue damage, most frequently as areas of fibrinoid necrosis. In some models of immune complex-mediated disease of the lungs, TNF-α appears to be an important proinflammatory cytokine.

In the case of the eye, the appearance of DR (or Ia) antigens on the cell surface of resident ocular cells (not usually thought of as part of the immune system) may indicate the potential for their role as accessory immune cells. Forrester and colleagues85 found that the posterior uveal tract is richly populated with classic dendritic cells that constitutively express high levels of MHC II antigens. They further speculate about the important role in the interaction of resident ocular cells with the immune system, and by extension their initiation of autoimmune responses in the posterior pole.
