We investigated OAHFAs derived from human meibum and tear film in meibomian gland dysfunction and dry eye disease
This study evaluates tear film and meibum-derived OAHFAs in meibomian gland dysfunction
Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) produces alterations in the tear film (TF) lipid layer that causes excessive evaporation of tears from the ocular surface and subsequent increased osmolarity leading to dry eye disease. However, the molecular …
This study evaluates the levels and regulation of tear film inflammatory proteins in contact lens-related dry eye (CLDE).
This study evaluates the precorneal tear film (PCTF) and lipid layer (TFLL) thicknesses and thinning rates in meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) using a combined ultra-high-resolution optical coherence tomography (OCT) and thickness dependent fringe (TDF) interferometry system.
This project aims to investigate the role of (O-acyl)-Omega-Hydroxy Fatty Acids in alterations of human tear film lipid layer as a basis for formulating novel therapeutics for meibomian gland dysfunction.
