Subjects are patients with CIDP
Controls are age-matched people without CIDP
- Corneal SensitivityThe most important variable here is corneal sensitivity in study subjects vs. controls. This is a prospective screen to determine if a difference exists before pursuing larger studies. The endpoint for this investigation will be analysis of 10 patients with CIDP and 10 age-matched controls.
- Corneal nerve densityIf there is a difference observed in corneal sensation between subjects and controls, then corneal nerve densities in respective corneas will be measured.
