The role of wax and sterol esters of meibomian secretions in chronic blepharitis.


We analyzed the fatty wax esters and sterol esters found in the expressed lipid secretions of six patients from each of six clinical groups of chronic blepharitis, plus eight normal controls. Using gas liquid chromatography (GLC), 12 peaks corresponding to equivalent chain lengths (ECL) of 33.6, 35.4, 36.1, 37.3, 38.2, 39.2, 40.1, 41.2, 42.1, 43.2, 44.9 and… (More)
