Attn: Anyone Who Requested Registration and never got a response.

We normally get back to people on registration requests within a few business days. If you don't hear back from us within a week it may be because we're having difficulty with your email address. If you included your username in your request we've probably registered you already and just can't send you the information. You can give us a call at 1-877-693-7939 between the hours of 8am-4am Pacific time. We'll have your information set aside to give to you in the event attempts to send to your email didn't work.

  • Lubricin data demonstrates significant improvement in multiple signs and symptoms

    I recently came across the following article on the Harvard ophthalmology website:

    David A. Sullivan, PhD, in collaboration with colleagues from several institutions worldwide, evaluated the use of recombinant human lubricin a glycoprotein with lubricating, anti-adhesive and anti-inflammatory activities as a treatment for patients with dry eye disease. The results of this clinical trial, published in the September issue of The Ocular Surface, showed significant improvement in signs and symptoms of dry eye disease, without adverse events during the investigation. Current treatments for dry eye disease provide only limited symptomatic relief, so the results of this trial are encouraging as a potential treatment for both measured symptoms and objective signs of dry eye disease.
    The full press release can be found here and the results of the clinical trial can be found here. I've been using Hylo Gel eyedrops (which are based on sodium hyaluronate) for a while now, so this is encouraging news. I've checked the Lubris website for more information but I'm not sure what the timeline for further testing and commercial release is. If anyone has more information, feel free to share.
