- Toll-like receptor 2 expression on human conjunctival epithelial cells: a pathway for Staphylococcus aureus involvement in chronic ocular proinflammatory responsesEllen B Cook
Department of Medicine, School of Medicine, University of Wisconsin Madison, Madison, Wisconsin 53792, USA
Ann Allergy Asthma Immunol 94:486-97. 2005..Staphylococcus aureus colonization is common in atopic keratoconjunctivitis, potentially activating epithelial cells via toll-like receptor 2 (TLR-2) and the receptor for platelet-activating factor (PAFR)...
- Allergic tears promote upregulation of eosinophil adhesion to conjunctival epithelial cells in an ex vivo model: inhibition with olopatadine treatmentEllen B Cook
Departmentsof Medicine, School of Medicine, University of Wisconsin Madison, 53792, USA
Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 47:3423-9. 2006..This study examined whether the incubation of human conjunctival epithelial cells (HCEs) with tears from allergic subjects promotes eosinophil adhesion, and it examined the effect of treatment with olopatadine on this process...

- The promotion of eosinophil degranulation and adhesion to conjunctival epithelial cells by IgE-activated conjunctival mast cellsEllen B Cook
Department of Medicine, University of Wisconsin Madison, School of Medicine, Madison, Wisconsin, USA
Ann Allergy Asthma Immunol 92:65-72. 2004..Allergen-mediated mast cell activation is a key feature of ocular allergic diseases. Evidence of eosinophil-derived mediators in tears and conjunctival biopsy specimens has been associated with chronic ocular allergic inflammation...

Departments of Medicine, Visual Sciences, University of Wisconsin Madison, School of Medicine and Public Health, Madison, Wisconsin, USA
Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 49:3992-8. 2008..This process has not been examined in HCECs. In this study, the authors examined the regulation of TNFR1 expression and shedding by TACE on primary HCECs and the IOBA-NHC conjunctival epithelial cell line...
