Answer

Immunomodulators

These agents may regulate key immune factors responsible for inflammation.

Cyclosporine ophthalmic (Restasis)

Cyclosporine ophthalmic is used to relieve dry eyes caused by suppressed tear production secondary to ocular inflammation. It is thought to act as a partial immunomodulator, but the exact mechanism of action is not known.
