OBJECTIVE The purpose of the study is to compare tear fluid concentrations of interleukin-1alpha (IL-1alpha), tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), and epidermal growth factor (EGF) in ocular rosacea with those in control subjects and to examine the relation between tear functions, such as production and clearance rate, and the concentrations of cytokines in tear fluid. PARTICIPANTS AND INTERVENTION Fourteen patients with severe meibomian gland disease, facial rosacea, and symptoms of… CONTINUE READING
