Description
Today’s seminar focuses on the relationship between the barrier function of keratoconjunctival epithelium and the pathophysiology of ocular surface disorders. When the barrier is intact, the development of allergic conjunctivitis is inhibited because antigens and inflammatory mediators do not permeate into the conjunctiva and cornea. Regarding dry eye disease, mucins on the ocular surface play crucial roles in controlling the barrier functionAssociate Professor Ken Fukuda of the Clinical Medicine Unit at Kochi University and Dr. Aoi Komuro, visiting lecturer Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine, will discuss about the barrier function in relation to allergic conjunctivitis and dry eye, respectively.
