Carbonic anhydrase inhibitors: sulfonamides incorporating furan-, thiophene- and pyrrole-carboxamido groups possess strong topical intraocular pressure lowering properties as aqueous suspensions.


Important physiological and physio-pathological functions are played by several carbonic anhydrase (CA, EC isozymes, which are strongly inhibited by aromatic and heterocyclic sulfonamides. Here we report several new types of such sulfonamides, incorporating furan-, thiophene- and pyrrole-carboxamide moieties in their molecules. Some of these… (More)
