Lifitegrast is a FDA approved drug for the treatment of keratoconjunctivitis sicca (dry eye syndrome). It is a tetrahydroisoquinoline derivative and lymphocyte function-associated antigen-1 ( LFA-1) antagonist that was discovered through the rational design process. The ophthalmic solution was approved in July, 2016 under the trade name Xiidra. It has shown to protect the corneal surface and alleviate the symptoms of dry eye syndrome with fast onset of action and well tolerated profile in both local and systemic setting. [DrugBank]

Lifitegrast addresses both the symptoms and the resulting ocular surface damage by interfering with ocular inflammatory cycle 2. Lifitegrast is a lymphocyte function–associated antigen-1 antagonist through direct competitive antagonism and sequentially inhibits the T-cell recruitment, activation, and proinflammatory cytokine release associated with dry eye syndrome 4.
