Current research

PhD-project: Ocular comorbidity in Atopic Dermatitis

In this project we explore and characterise the eye manifestations to Atopic Dermatitis, here among atopic keratoconjunctivitis (AKC), which is a potential sigh-threatening disease. We aim identify potential risk factors for developing AKC and hope to increase the diagnostic specificity through a broad knowledge of the phenotypic presentation. To reveal some of the pathomechanisms behind, we investigate the Goblet cells of the eye, including the affects of these in relation to the new biologic treatment for atopic dermatitis. Hereby, a better understanding of the disease will make it possible for earlier treatment initiation, and thus lower the risk of severe complications with vision loss and blindness.
