Methods Of Treating Dry Eye Disease Using Tnf Alpha Antagonists

Abstract

The disclosure is directed to novel predictive methods and personalized therapies for treating dry eye disease (DED). Specifically, this disclosure relates to methods of treating a patient having DED by selectively administering a TNFα antagonist, e.g., a TNFα antibody, such as LME636, to the patient on the basis of that patient being genetically predisposed to have a favorable response to treatment with the TNFα antagonist. Also disclosed herein are transmittable forms of information, diagnostic methods, and kits useful in predicting the likelihood that a patient having DED will respond to treatment with a TNFα antagonist, e.g., a TNFα antibody, such as LME636.
