The serotonin 2 (5-HT(2)) receptor antagonists, MCI-9042 (Anplag) and ketanserin, have been shown to lower intraocular pressure in rabbits (1) and humans (2). The mechanism of action of these drugs has not been determined, but it is hypothesized that 5-HT(2) receptors, and possibly alpha-adrenergic receptors, (3) may regulate in part aqueous humor production via an intracellular signal transduction pathway in the ciliary body. We therefore examined whether 5-HT(2) receptors were coupled to… CONTINUE READING
