Lacritin - Keynote Presentation this Month!

Posted on September 15, 2013 at 2:20 AM

Several Lacritin presentations were held at the Tear Film and Ocular Surface Society meeting in Taormina Sicily (September 18 - 21st), including a keynote presentation from Consortium member Andrew Mackay.


Andrew reported on how linkage of Lacritin to an elastin-like peptide creates a gel for slow release from the surface of the eye. The Laurie Lab presented new data on how Lacritin protects corneal epithelial cells against inflammatory cytokines that are elevated in Dry Eye.
