Treatment of Keratitis Eye Infection through biocompatible nanoparticles

For treatment of keratitis, a team of scientists at CCMB has developed a formulation, which is a major fungal eye infection, common among farmers in rural areas. It was a smart polymer-based biocompatible nano particles carrying a formulation that is designed to handle problems caused by fungal infection effectively. Farmers are more likely to contract keratitis, during harvest season. The disease spreads when the farmers come in contact with the leaves of the plants. The fungi reach cornea (outer most part of the eye) and cause inflamation. It then releases enzymes to break down the cornea and use its components as nutrients. The host also responds by its defence mechanism. The infection will eventually lead to cornea damage, which can end up causing scar formation, thus compromising the vision.
