Flurbiprofen Na and diclofenac Na, two ocular antiinflammatory agents, were investigated to determine the aqueous humor concentrations in the human eye following topical application. One hundred sixty-five patients undergoing cataract surgery received a single drop of either diclofenac Na or flurbiprofen Na at selected times prior to the surgical procedure.(More)
We studied the effect of manual nasolacrimal occlusion on the concentration of timolol in the aqueous humor of eyes of patients undergoing cataract extraction. Aqueous humor samples were obtained at various times after timolol maleate instillation from patients with or without 5 min of nasolacrimal occlusion; aliquots were assayed by HPLC. In patients(More)
An HPLC assay for diclofenac (DC) and flurbiprofen (FP) in a 100-microliters sample of aqueous humour is presented. After acetonitrile extraction, the residue is analyzed using a reversed-phase octyl column and ultraviolet detection. The method is simple and reproducible. Excellent selectivity and resolution are achieved using an acetic(More)
Aqueous humor levels of pilocarpine and timolol in rabbits after administration of either 2% pilocarpine or 0.5% timolol in single-drug solutions were compared with the concentrations found after instillation of a fixed combination of 0.5% timolol and 2% pilocarpine drops. Time intervals considered were 15 min, 30 min, 1 hr, 4 hr, and 8 hr after(More)
The clastogenic effect of the drug cis-diamminedichloroplatinum II (cisplatin, CDDP) was investigated in Wistar rat bone marrow cells. Male rats, 3 per treatment time, aged 4 months and weighing 250-350 g were injected intraperitoneally with 6.0 mg/kg CDDP solution, and the control group received isotonic saline. The animals were sacrificed 6, 12, 18, 24(More)
To evaluate the influence of prior administered ointments upon the intraocular penetration of drops, we applied either a combination antibiotic ointment, a combination antibiotic-steroid ointment, or a lubricant ointment at different time periods before instillation of 2% pilocarpine drops into rabbit eyes. The level of pilocarpine measured in aqueous humor(More)
A high-performance liquid chromatographic assay for trifluorothymidine in biological matrices of the eye is presented. Sample pretreatment was based on liquid-liquid extraction with ethyl acetate. Following evaporation, the residue was analyzed using a reversed-phase octadecylsilane column with ultraviolet detection. The lower limit of detection is ca. 50(More)
Many ophthalmologists routinely administer subconjunctival antibiotics at the end of cataract surgery for prophylaxis against bacterial endophthalmitis. Additionally they use acetazolamide and/or timolol to control intraocular pressure in the first 24-hour postoperative period. An animal study was undertaken to learn whether treatment with the aqueous humor(More)
