Abstract

The aim of this research was to review the special pharmacology of tetracycline antibiotics as anti-inflammatory drugs for treatment of obstructive Meibomian gland disease (MGD). PubMed was used as principal resource for articles, regardless of language, on doxycycline and minocycline with key interests being on their serum and tissue pharmacokinetics and their use in clinical studies as part of management of MGD.
