  Purpose

This is a global study of tear osmolarity using the OcuSense TearLab technology to compare tear samples of age and sex-matched normals with those with Dry Eye Disease (DED). Diagnosis of DED subjects will be established using objective and subjective tests. Positive responses to 3 out of 6 defined criteria determine subjects with DED. DED subjects will be further categorized by severity, using results from the objective and subjective tests. Subjects will be assessed at a single visit.


Condition

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case Control

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To establish OcuSense TearLab Osmometry (OTO) normative values, and referent values to diagnose dry eye disease (DED) [ Time Frame: Single site visit ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To establish the relationship between OTO values and the severity of DED. [ Time Frame: Single site visit ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To assess the effect on diagnostic accuracy of adding additional categories of diagnostic test results, e.g. Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI) and /or Tear Break-up Film Test (TBUT). [ Time Frame: Single Site Visit ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To assess the effect of age and sex on the range of OTO values in normal subjects [ Time Frame: Single site visit ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To establish the variance of right eye (RE)/left eye (LE) OTO values in normal subjects and in subjects with DED [ Time Frame: Single site visit ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To establish the accuracy of single eye OTO values versus bilateral values in diagnosing DED. [ Time Frame: Single Site Visit ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To assess the range of OTO values in symptomatic subjects without signs of DED and in DED subjects of varying severity as judged by the clinical severity scale. [ Time Frame: Single Site Visit ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 500
Study Start Date: February 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts
1
200 subjects with no history of Dry Eye Disease either by symptoms or diagnosis,
2
300 subjects with positive Dry Eye Disease history.

Detailed Description:

This is a multicenter study. A total of 500 subjects are expected to be enrolled at 10 sites located in the United States, Europe and Japan. It is anticipated that each site will enroll approximately 50 subjects.

Objectives:

  • Primary: To establish OcuSense TearLab Osmometry (OTO) normative values, and referent values to diagnose dry eye disease (DED)
  • Secondary:
  • To establish the relationship between OTO values and the severity of DED.
  • To assess the effect on diagnostic accuracy of adding additional categories of diagnostic test results, e.g. Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI) and /or Tear Break-up Film Test (TBUT).
  • To assess the effect of age and sex on the range of OTO values in normal subjects.
  • To establish the variance of right eye (RE)/left eye (LE) OTO values in normal subjects and in subjects with DED.
  • To establish the accuracy of single eye OTO values versus bilateral values in diagnosing DED.
  • To assess the range of OTO values in symptomatic subjects without signs of DED and in DED subjects of varying severity as judged by the clinical severity scale.
