Study: Calcineurin inhibitors for bleph

There is only a tiny summary of this available on PubMed but it looks extremely interesting. Hopefully I will be able to get more information from the authors and if so I will post it separately.

Treatment of chronic blepharokeratoconjunctivitis with local calcineurin inhibitors

Ophthalmologe. 2009 Jul;106(7):635-8.
Auw-Hädrich C, Reinhard T.

Topical calcineurin inhibitors (cyclosporin A 1%, FK506, pimecrolimus) can be useful for treating chronic blepharokeratoconjunctivitis in addition to lid hygiene and lubricants. This treatment leads to an improvement of dry eye symptoms and reduces inflammation.
