Mouse model of ocular hypertension with retinal ganglion cell degeneration.

Ocular hypertension is a primary risk factor for glaucoma and results in retinal ganglion cell (RGC) degeneration. Current animal models of glaucoma lack severe RGC cell death as seen in glaucoma, mak...

Regulation of Choroidal Blood Flow During Isometric Exercise at Different Levels of Intraocular Pressure.

There is evidence that choroidal blood flow (ChBF) is regulated in a complex way during changes in ocular perfusion pressure (OPP). We hypothesized that ChBF regulates better in response to changes in...

Safety and Efficacy of Ripasudil in Japanese Patients with Glaucoma or Ocular Hypertension: 3-month Interim Analysis of ROCK-J, a Post-Marketing Surveillance Study.

To evaluate the safety and intraocular pressure (IOP)-lowering effects of a ripasudil 0.4% ophthalmic solution in Japanese patients with glaucoma and ocular hypertension (OH) as a post-marketing surve...

Co-Delivery of Timolol and Brimonidine with a Polymer Thin-Film Intraocular Device.

We developed a polycaprolactone (PCL) co-delivery implant that achieves zero-order release of 2 ocular hypotensive agents, timolol maleate and brimonidine tartrate. We also demonstrate intraocular pre...

Anterior Corneal Folds Correlate with Low Intraocular Pressure and May Serve as a Marker for Ocular Hypotony.

Subtle folds can be seen in the anterior cornea in eyes with hypotony using fluorescein and blue light. We aim to assess their extent and grade with respect to the level of intraocular pressure (IOP).

Double Blind Study of Hypertonic Saline vs Mannitol in the Management of Increased Intracranial Pressure (ICP).

The study goal is to compare the management of increased intra-cranial pressure (ICP) using 3% hypertonic saline vs. mannitol (given in same osmolar loads). Primary hypothesis: 1. ...

Comparison of Efficacy of Two Groups of Glaucoma Drops (Xalatan vs.Cosopt) in Reducing Eye Pressure Following Laser (SLT)Treatment in the Management of Glaucoma.

WHAT IS THIS STUDY ABOUT? Glaucoma and ocular hypertension are chronic eye diseases that can damage the optic nerve and lead to vision loss or blindness. The optic nerve acts like an elec...

The Efficacy of Oral Versus Intravenous Hypertonic Saline Administration in Runners With Exercise-Associated Hyponatremia

The purpose of the study is to 1) evaluate incidence and primary cause of exercise-associated Hyponatremia (EAH) in race finishers participating in the Western States 100-mile Endurance Ru...

To Assess the Safety and Efficacy of Travacom in Patients With Uncontrolled Intraocular Pressure

This study is a multi-site, unmasked phase IV study. Travacom(R) is a combination topical ocular agent, containing travoprost and timolol, which lower intraocular pressure (IOP) by complem...

A Pilot Study: Safety & TOlerability of Hypertonic Saline Administration Via IntraOsseous Access

Hypertonic saline is used to treat elevated intracranial pressure. Intraosseous vascular access has been used to administer fluids and medications. This study combines these to administer ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Hypertonic sodium chloride solution. A solution having an osmotic pressure greater than that of physiologic salt solution (0.9 g NaCl in 100 ml purified water).

A condition in which the intraocular pressure is elevated above normal and which may lead to glaucoma.


Measurement of ocular tension (INTRAOCULAR PRESSURE) with a tonometer. (Cline, et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)

Abnormally low intraocular pressure often related to chronic inflammation (uveitis).
