PURPOSE To determine abnormal meibomian gland secretion polar lipids from meibomianitis patients and to determine the significance of these lipid differences. METHODS Meibomian gland secretions were collected from controls and patients with chronic blepharitis. These meibomian gland lipids (meibum) were first separated by thin-layer chromatography. Polar lipids were then separated utilizing high-pressure liquid chromatography with ultraviolet detection. Individual peaks were identified by… CONTINUE READING
