This study is a randomized, double-masked trial to examine the response to trabeculectomy surgery. In this study, patients will be randomized to receive MMC via subconjunctival injection or topical sponge application.
This study is a randomized, double-masked (study participants and outcome assessors) trial. During the enrollment period, patients from Menelik Hospital who are planning to have trabeculectomy surgery and who meet the study enrollment criteria will be randomized to receive mitomycin C applied topically or by injection during the surgery.At Menelik Hospital mitomycin-C (MMC) is routinely applied to the eye prior to trabeculectomy by physicians via both sponge and injection routes. The primary outcome is the patient's response to the trabeculectomy procedure, as measured by cumulative complications after a 3-month follow-up period post-operation. Secondary outcome is the change in intraocular pressure after a 3 month follow-up period. The investigators will perform subgroup analyses by stratifying the population according to skin pigmentation to determine whether pigmentation is a predictor of treatment success.
Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

The purpose of this study is to explore other treatments for patients with superficial bladder cancer. The investigational medication to be studied is an enzyme called hyaluronidase, and i...
This is a phase III randomized study designed to evaluate the efficacy of mitomycin, doxifluridine, and cisplatin compared to mitomycin and doxifluridine.
RATIONALE: Hyperthermia therapy kills tumor cells by heating them to several degrees above normal body temperature. Peritoneal infusion of heated chemotherapy drugs, such as mitomycin, may...
To investigate factors associated with decreased corneal endothelial cell density (ECD) after trabeculectomy with mitomycin C (MMC).
ZIEL: Diese Studie erfolgte zum Vergleich der Wirksamkeit einer intravesikalen Instillation von Mitomycin C (MMC) zur Prävention eines nicht muskelinvasiven Ta- oder T1-High-Risk-Harnblasenkarzino...
To determine how photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and mitomycin C (MMC) affect corneal nerves and their regeneration over time after surgery.
Mitomycin-c (MMC) is the most used intravesical adjuvant agent in non-muscle invasive bladder cancer to prevent recurrence. However, a consensus on about appropriate dosage and treatment schedule of M...
To report on the frequency, efficacy, and safety of laser goniopuncture (LGP) in lowering IOP following mitomycin-C augmented non-penetrating deep sclerectomy (NPDS) in a large cohort of eyes.
Toxic antibiotic of the mitomycin group, obtained from MITOMYCIN and also from Streptomyces ardus and other species. It is proposed as an antineoplastic agent, with some antibiotic properties.
An enediyne that alkylates DNA and RNA like MITOMYCIN does, so it is cytotoxic.
An antineoplastic antibiotic produced by Streptomyces caespitosus. It is one of the bi- or tri-functional ALKYLATING AGENTS causing cross-linking of DNA and inhibition of DNA synthesis.
An alkylating agent structurally similar to MITOMYCIN and found to be effective in the treatment of leukemia and various other neoplasms in mice. It causes leukemia and thrombocytopenia in almost all human patients.
A group of methylazirinopyrroloindolediones obtained from certain Streptomyces strains. They are very toxic antibiotics used as ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENTS in some solid tumors. PORFIROMYCIN and MITOMYCIN are the most useful members of the group.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
