Three groups of glaucoma patients, treated topically with various beta-blocking agents, were studied for mucocutaneous side-effects of long-term therapy. In five of eleven patients with ocular and/or periocular dermatitis as an adverse reaction to long-term treatment with metoprolol eye drops a dermatitis, reproducible by patch tests with pure metoprolol(More)
The ocular penetration of topically applied [14C]-atenolol in the rabbit was determined by means of liquid scintillation counting. Only one eye was treated, the fellow eye serving as a control. Blood plasma levels were measured as well. The absolute amount of atenolol which penetrated the eye was very low, but a relatively high concentration was achieved in(More)
26 eyes of 14 patients--8 with primary open angle glaucoma, 6 glaucoma suspects--were treated for at least 6 months with either twice daily timolol 0.25% in both eyes or twice daily timolol 0.50% in one eye. None of the patients received concomitant local or oral drugs. Special attention was paid to tachyphylaxis and to blood pressure and pulse rate. We(More)
A novel approach to enhance the activity of doxorubicin is to increase the availability of cellular "chelatable" iron to participate in doxorubicin-mediated free-radical generation. To achieve this, we designed a regimen consisting of desferrioxamine (DFO, 50 mg/kg daily given as an i.v. infusion over 72 h) to increase cellular iron uptake. Thereafter, the(More)
A double-blind single-dose trial was performed on 13 patients with primary open-angle glaucoma. Metoprolol 1%, 2%, and 4% produced a median fall in IOP of 5.6, 5.4, and 6.8 mm Hg, respectively, in the treated eye. The differences in effect between the 1%, 2%, and 4% solutions were not statistically significant. There was no significant fall in IOP in the(More)
We studied the effect of a single dose of atenolol 4% eye drops on 21 patients with primary open-angle glaucoma during a double-blind clinical trial. We monitored intraocular pressure (IOP), blood pressure, and pulse rate. At three and six h after medication, the average reduction of IOP was 7.3 and 4.1 mm Hg, respectively, compared to the baseline readings(More)
We compared the behavior of a 70% water content hydrogel lens to a 24-hour collagen shield in 11 healthy volunteers. Corneal swelling was measured by means of ultrasound pachymetry. After 24 hours of continuous wear, mean corneal thickness increased 26.4 microns (4%) with the hydrogel lens and 17.9 microns (3%) with the collagen shield, a difference that(More)
In a multicentre clinical trial thirteen patients with primary open angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension were followed during at least six months while selfinstilling Pilogel (once daily) and topical beta-blocker (twice daily). After six months of combination therapy there was an average decrease in intra-ocular pressure (IOP) of 33.6% 9.5 hours after(More)
