To analyze how ocular surface parameters correlate to presence of pterygium and investigate the possible impact of pterygia on tear film findings and meibomian glands findings.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: PloS one
To evaluate ocular surface and Meibomian glands morphology of patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS).
Pterygium and meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) are two clinically correlated ocular diseases. We propose to investigate the shared gene signature between pterygium and MGD.
To investigate the pathological changes of the meibomian gland (MG) and ocular surface in Apolipoprotein E knockout (ApoE) mice and to investigate the association of meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) ...
Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection has been implicated as a primary cause of lesions in the anogenital region, skin, oropharynx and respiratory tract. Additionally, the role of HPV in the pathogenes...
To describe and evaluate a comprehensive grading system for meibomian gland (MG) digital infrared images developed by for the Dry Eye Assessment and Management (DREAM) Study.
In this study, the investigators aim to determine the effects of age, sex, history of ocular surgery and contact lens use, and ocular surface and meibomian gland parameters on the lipid la...
Multicentric study, open label, uncontrolled phase IV in 30 patients with meibomian glands dysfunction . Its objective is to Collect information from patients and ophthalmologists special...
Tisseel fibrin adhesive has been used extensively in many forms of surgery. Its use in eye surgery has been relatively recent. A few studies recently showed it was effective in securing co...
Meibomian glands are a kind of sebaceous gland located in the tarsus of lower and upper lids and their function is to express lipids to the tear film. The secretion of lipids, polar and no...
This clinical trial tries to use tissue fibrin glues (Tisseel) to treat various ocular surface diseases or surgeries, which includes pterygium surgery, corneal melting/perforation, Gunders...
The sebaceous glands situated on the inner surface of the eyelids between the tarsal plates and CONJUNCTIVA.
A non-neoplastic cyst of the MEIBOMIAN GLANDS of the eyelid.
Purulent infection of one of the sebaceous glands of Zeis along the eyelid margin (external) or of the meibomian gland on the conjunctival side of the eyelid (internal).
Ocular manifestations secondary to various NEOPLASMS in which antibodies to antigens of the primary tumor cross-react with ocular antigens. This autoimmune response often leads to visual loss and other ocular dysfunctions.
Exocrine glands in animals which secrete scents which either repel or attract other animals, e.g. perianal glands of skunks, anal glands of weasels, musk glands of foxes, ventral glands of wood rats, and dorsal glands of peccaries.
