PURPOSE This study was performed to evaluate the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and peripapillary choroidal thickness in eyes with tilted optic disc in order to identify characteristic RNFL and peripapillary choroid patterns verified by optical coherence tomography (OCT). METHODS Twenty-nine eyes of 29 patients with tilted optic discs were studied with(More)
AIM To evaluate ocular penetration of topically applied 1% tigecycline. METHODS Forty-two New Zealand White rabbits were divided into 3 groups. A 50 µL drop of 1% tigecycline was administered in group 1. In groups 2 and 3, the drop was administered every 15min for 60min (keratitis protocol). Aqueous humor samples in groups 1 and 2 were collected under(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the antiangiogenic effect of itraconazole for the prevention of experimentally induced corneal neovascularization and whether the efficacy depends on the route of administration. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-six rats were randomly divided into 6 groups with 6 rats in each group. Chemical cauterization of the cornea was performed(More)
Objective. To investigate the effects of topical and subconjunctival tigecycline on the prevention of corneal neovascularization. Materials and Methods. Following chemical burn, thirty-two rats were treated daily with topical instillation of 1 mg/mL tigecycline (group 1) or subconjunctival instillation of 1 mg/mL tigecycline (group 3) for 7 days.

PURPOSE The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effectiveness of topically applied tigecycline for the treatment of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in a rabbit model. METHODS Experimental bacterial keratitis was induced in rabbits by a corneal intrastromal injection of 100 colony-forming units (CFUs) of MRSA bacteria. Sixteen(More)
