Anti-inflammatory Effects of Alpha Linolenic Acid on Human Corneal Epithelial Cells.
Systemic polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) were shown to improve the symptoms of dry eye syndrome due to their anti-inflammatory effects. This study evaluated the in-vitro anti-inflammatory effects of PUFAs on human corneal epithelial (HCE) cells.
HCE cells were incubated for 2 hours with different concentrations of PUFAs: Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), Gamma-linolenic
