Disease relevance of Dacryocystitis


High impact information on Dacryocystitis


Chemical compound and disease context of Dacryocystitis


Anatomical context of Dacryocystitis


Gene context of Dacryocystitis

  • PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitor protein on lacrimal gland immunopathology and ocular surface disease resulting from induced dacryoadenitis [13].
  • CONCLUSION: Dacryocystitis due to MRSA was resistant to conservative therapy [5].
  • Experimental autoimmune dacryoadenitis: purification and characterization of a lacrimal gland antigen [14].
  • Atrophic acini in dacryoadenitis reacted with antibodies (ABs) KL1 and Pkk1 (CK 7, 8, 17, 18) in a manner similar to ducts [9].
  • Epithelia in dacryoadenitis reacted weakly but consistently with Lf while revealing weak and inconsistent staining for Ly [9].
