PURPOSE To investigate the effect of nerve growth factor (NGF) in combination with docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) on corneal nerve regeneration in a rabbit model after PRK and correlate the findings with functional tear test. METHODS Unilateral PRK was performed on 21 New Zealand albino rabbits. Three groups, each consisting of six rabbits, were randomized to(More)
PURPOSE To study the contribution of a novel PAF receptor antagonist LAU-0901 in the modulation of the increased inflammatory response in mice exposed to dessicating conditions (DE) after PRK. METHODS Eighty 13-14 week old female Balb/C mice were used. They were divided into two groups: One group was treated with LAU-0901 topical drops. The other group(More)
Platelet-activating factor (PAF) is a potent bioactive lipid generated in the cornea after injury whose actions are mediated through specific receptors. Studies from our laboratory have shown that PAF interactions with its receptors activate several transmembrane signals involved in apoptosis. Continuous exposure to PAF during prolonged inflammation(More)
