Cyclosporin A increases tear fluid secretion via release of sensory neurotransmitters and muscarinic pathway in mice.

Cyclosporin A, an immunosuppressant, has the potential to increase tear fluid secretion through mechanisms which are not yet well understood. To gain insight into this question, we investigated the effect of cyclosporin A containing eyedrops on lacrimation in normal mice. Topical application of 0.1% cyclosporin A eyedrops for 3 days significantly increased… (More)
