BACKGROUND Conjunctival mast cells (MCs) are important effector cells in seasonal allergic conjunctivitis, via histamine and cytokine secretion. Several new anti-allergic eye drops stabilize MCs and block histamine receptors, but their anti-inflammatory effects are unclear. OBJECTIVE Anti-allergic drugs were compared for their anti-inflammatory effects in… CONTINUE READING
