Lifitegrast is a novel lymphocyte function-associated antigen 1 (LFA-1) antagonist. It acts by inhibiting LFA-1 interaction with the intercellular adhesion molecule (ICAM)-1 on the T-cell surface, inhibiting T-cell adhesion, migration, activation and subsequent cytokine release and thereby inhibiting subsequent T-cell-mediated inflammation associated with Dry Eye Disease.
