Figure 2

Tear break-up time (BUT) was measured at 0 w, 2 w, and 4 w. In the ID group, tear BUT was significantly decreased at 2 w and 4 w compared to at 0 w (within group comparison p = 0.0002). Tear BUT was significantly different for the ID/AdTNFRI group (p = 0.002) at 2 w, before treatment, but not at 4 w, after treatment (p = 0.09). A between groups comparison (ID and ID/AdTNFRI) revealed a significant difference only at 4 w (p = 0.005).
