To study the possible physiological role of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) in the regulation of intraocular pressure (IOP) the effects of an increase of endogenous ANP within the physiological range induced by the neutral endopeptidase 24.11 (NEP) inhibitor candoxatril were examined. In a single masked placebo controlled trial, seven patients were studied(More)
PURPOSE Inhibition of carbonic anhydrase (CA) by acetazolamide causes a decrease in the standing potential of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and an increase in the rate of subretinal fluid absorption, and it may improve cystoid macular edema. These effects are thought to be mediated by the RPE. Given the solubility coefficient of acetazolamide, the(More)
