Effect of Intraoperative Dexamethasone on Post-op Dry Eye

2019-12-08 01:41:44 | BioPortfolio


To compare the signs and symptoms of dry eye after cataract surgery between subjects randomized to receive intraoperative dexamethasone in addition to the use of a standard topical post-op treatment regimen.


Forty patients requiring cataract surgery will be randomized to treatment of post-operative inflammation with a single intraoperative dexamethasone injection plus a standard course of topical ophthalmic corticosteroid drops or the standard treatment alone. Dry eye testing will be administered at baseline, 1 week and 3 weeks following surgery.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of acetate esters and water to alcohols and acetate. EC

Megestrol acetate is a progestogen with actions and uses similar to those of the progestogens in general. It also has anti-androgenic properties. It is given by mouth in the palliative treatment or as an adjunct to other therapy in endometrial carcinoma and in breast cancer. Megestrol acetate has been approved to treat anorexia and cachexia.

A 6-methyl PROGESTERONE acetate with reported glucocorticoid activity and effect on ESTRUS.

An enzyme that catalyzes the formation of CoA derivatives from ATP, acetate, and CoA to form AMP, pyrophosphate, and acetyl CoA. It acts also on propionates and acrylates. EC

An enzyme that catalyzes reversibly the phosphorylation of acetate in the presence of a divalent cation and ATP with the formation of acetylphosphate and ADP. It is important in the glycolysis process. EC
