PURPOSE To study the effects of nilvadipine, a Ca2+ antagonist, on tissue circulation in the optic nerve head (ONH), choroid, and retina in rabbits and on the ONH circulation in normal tension glaucoma (NTG) patients. METHODS Nilvadipine (3.2 microg/kg) or vehicle solution was injected intravenously into urethane-anesthetized rabbits, and the normalized blur value (NB), a quantitative index of in vivo tissue blood velocity, was measured in the choroid and in an area of the ONH and retina free… CONTINUE READING
