Mucinlike glycoprotein from tears and conjunctival goblet cell densities were determined in normal subjects and in patients. The results indicated that although there was a statistically significant decrease, a substantial amount of mucinlike glycoprotein was present in tears from patients with ocular cicatricial pemphigoid (OCP), radiation keratitis, and corneal anesthesia. In the same patients, the goblet cell count was profoundly decreased in OCP and radiation keratitis, well out of… CONTINUE READING
