PURPOSE This study represents a first step toward the evaluation of possible compositional differences in meibum from normal donors (Mn) and donors with meibomian gland dysfunction (Md) by (1)H-NMR spectroscopy. The results highlight the applicability of (1)H-NMR spectroscopy for the quantitative analysis of waxes, cholesteryl esters, and glycerides in… CONTINUE READING
