Insights into the Lid Margin: Characterization of Membrane Associated Mucins in Ocular Surface Disease

Study Overview

Dry eye disease affects millions of people worldwide and due to an incomplete understanding of the pathogenesis of the disease, it is widely underdiagnosed and undermanaged by clinicians. Understanding the contribution of the proteins involved in maintaining boundary lubrication between the ocular surface and eyelids, specifically mucins, may lead to better understanding of disease and potentially to earlier diagnosis of dry eye. The aim of this project is to investigate mucins on the ocular surface and examine differences in people with and without dry eye disease.
