Deficiency in preocular tear film protection was determined with rose bengal stain; the ID group was compared to the ID/AdTNFRI group. Staining at 2 w and 4 w was significantly different from at 0 w (p = 0.001 and 0.002, respectively) within the ID group, as well as within the ID/AdTNFRI group (p = 0.001 and 0.006, respectively). A between groups comparison (ID versus ID/AdTNFRI) revealed a significant difference only at 4 w (p = 0.0008).
