Dr John Greenwood, from the Institute of Ophtalmology, London, displayed
(in during the last European Neuroimmunology meeting, in Amsterdam) 
some pictures of a brain endothelial cell line (GP8) recently achieved in
his lab.

Theses cell are in final phase of characterization, and so far presents most
of the characteristics of the original (first passage) cultures.
