Human Ocular Microbiome: Bacteria, Fungi and Viruses in the Human Eye

by S. Shivaji (Author)

Format : Publisher PDF

File Size : 10 MB


This book is a comprehensive review of the human ocular microbiome, integrating findings from both conventional cultivable methods and next-generation sequencing technologies. It covers the discovery of ocular surface microbes in healthy and diseased eyes, including keratitis, uveitis, endophthalmitis, blepharitis, and conjunctivitis. The book also discusses confounding factors that influence the microbiome, mycobiome, and virome, as well as niche-specificity and core genera. It highlights the functional relevance of dysbiosis and discriminating genera in ocular diseases, including the molecular mechanisms involved in quorum-sensing and mucin metabolism. The book also covers microbiome-based therapies for treating ocular disorders, such as vernal keratoconjunctivitis.

This book is an essential resource for microbiologists studying the human eye, ophthalmologists treating eye infections and trauma, and medical students studying microbiology and medicine.
