Meibomian Gland Dysfunction Disease: Overview

Meibomian glands are the tiny oil glands present on the margin of the eyelids (the edges which touch when the eyelids are closed). These glands secrete oil which coats the surface of our eyes and keeps the water component of our tears from evaporating (drying out).

Meibomian Gland Dysfunction Pipeline Report

Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) refers to a condition where the Meibomian glands do not secrete enough oil or the oil they secrete is of poor quality. This causes because, the oil gland openings gets plugged up so that less oil comes out of the glands. The oil that does make it out of the glands can be granular (crusty) or otherwise abnormal, and can cause irritation.

Meibomian Gland Dysfunction Symptoms

  • Terminal duct obstruction
  • Changes in the glandular secretion
  • Eyelid margin foaminess
  • Hyperemia/telangiectasias
  • Changes in orifice position with respect to the muco-cutaneous junction

Meibomian Gland Dysfunction Diagnosis

The clinical diagnosis of MGD is often made using a combination of subjective symptoms and clinical signs. If asymptomatic, the diagnosis of MGD is only detectable by the presence of clinical signs. The most common clinically observable signs of MGD include MG dropout, altered MG excretions, and changes to the lid morphology with plugging or pouting of the MG orifice being the most pathognomonic sign of MGD. A simple, inexpensive technique to evaluate for MG dropout (partial or complete loss of MGs includes meibography by transillumination of an everted lid at the slit lamp. Infrared meibography has enhanced visualization of the MG, and there are now several commercially available meibographers for clinical use.

Meibomian Gland Dysfunction Treatment

Tetracyclines are bacteriostatic antibiotics used in the treatment of MGD primarily for their antiinflammatory properties rather than their antibiotic effects.

Azithromycin is a macrolide antibiotic that is used off-label to treat MGD. Macrolides provide predominantly Gram-positive coverage, inhibiting bacterial protein synthesis by binding to the 23S rRNA molecule of the 50S ribosome subunit. Azithromycin has been found to not only reduce the growth of lid bacteria, but also suppress bacterial lipases and conjunctival inflammation. Cyclosporine A, a calcineurin inhibitor available as a topical 0.05% emulsion (Restasis®, Allergan Inc., Irvine, CA, USA), was the first FDA-approved treatment for dry eye disease. Topical Lifitegrast ophthalmic solution 5.0% (Xiidra®, Shire, and Lexington, MA, USA) is the second and most recent drug approved by the FDA for management of dry eye disease. Essential fatty acids (EFAs) have been found to have anti-inflammatory effects, and oral supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids has been found to be associated with a change in the fatty acid saturation content in meibum.
