PURPOSE To compare central, peripheral, and ocular effects of exogenously given vasopressin on intraocular pressure (IOP) and to identify the related receptor mechanisms of action in rabbits. METHODS Young adult New Zealand albino rabbits were entrained under a daily 12-hour light and 12-hour dark cycle. In the early light period, bolus injections of vasopressin or desmopressin (a specific V(2) receptor agonist) were given either to the central nervous system (CNS) through an implanted… CONTINUE READING
