OBJECTIVES To compare conjunctival goblet cell numbers as well as epithelial turnover in patients with non-Sjögren syndrome--associated keratoconjunctivitis sicca (NSS-KCS) and those with SS-KCS before and after 6 months of treatment with topical cyclosporine A (CsA) ophthalmic emulsion. METHODS Conjunctival biopsy specimens from 16 patients with NSS-KCS and 12 with SS-KCS were obtained at baseline and after 6 months' therapy with CsA or vehicle alone. Conjunctival biopsy specimens were also… CONTINUE READING
