Intracameral injection (ICI) of antibiotics and steroid is an effective method to deliver drugs into eyeballs, and rapidly achieve therapeutic concentrations. The high intraocular concentrations, however, that occur by such injections can harm the corneal endothelium. The MTT assay, MTT [3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyl tetrazolium bromide], has… CONTINUE READING
