PURPOSE Sodium-potassium-activated adenosine triphosphatase (Na/K ATPase) is present in the ciliary epithelium, where it serves a regulatory role in fluid transport and the production of aqueous humor. The present study investigates the ability of topical k-strophanthin, a water-soluble mixture of glycosides, to lower intraocular pressure. METHODS K-strophanthin was topically administered to one eye and vehicle to the fellow control eye of rabbits, cats, and human volunteers. RESULTS Single… CONTINUE READING
