Effect of Lifitegrast on Dry Eye Disease Signs and Symptoms

2018-03-07 22:23:12 | BioPortfolio


To determine whether a fall in tear osmolarity precedes improvement in symptoms and signs of dry eye in dry eye patients treated topically with 5% lifitegrast drops for 3 months.


A longitudinal, single-arm, prospective study will recruit up to 30 subjects with moderate to severe dry eye disease. Subjects will be >18 years of age, diagnosed with moderate to severe dry eye (tear osmolarity > 320 mOsm/L and Visual Analog Scale (VAS) score > 40), willing to adhere to twice daily dosing (BID) and follow up visit schedule, have no history of ocular pathology / degeneration / allergy, not on any T-cell modulatory therapy, not have instilled any artificial tears within 2 hours of study visit, and not participating in any concurrent clinical trials. All subjects will complete an informed consent form indicating their voluntary participation in the study.

Study measurements will be made at baseline (first clinic visit), 2-, 6-, and 12-weeks following Lifitegrast therapy and include tear osmolarity (TearLab osmolarity system), VAS questionnaire, slit lamp examination for fluorescein corneal staining, tear break up time (TBUT), and Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) grading . At the end of the 3-mo study visit, the subjects will be informed of study completion and exited from the study.
