2014-08-27 03:18:46 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This randomized controlled trial compares two regimens of topical therapy:

- tobramycin 0.3% - dexamethasone 0.1% (TobraDex®, Alcon), one drop four times/day

- combination of tobramycin 0.3% - dexamethasone 0.1% (TobraDex®, Alcon), one drop four times/day, plus Ketorolac tromethamine 0.5% (Acular®, Allergan), one drop three times/day. The topical treatment is administered for 28 days after phacoemulsification.

Patients are independently assessed by two ophthalmologists. On day 28, patients are evaluated for

- corneal edema

- conjunctival redness

- anterior chamber reaction. Moreover, the cases necessitating continuation of treatment are compared in the two groups on day 28 and 42.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An anti-inflammatory 9-fluoro-glucocorticoid.

A pyrrolizine carboxylic acid derivative structurally related to INDOMETHACIN. It is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent used for analgesia for postoperative pain and inhibits cyclooxygenase activity.

An aminoglycoside, broad-spectrum antibiotic produced by Streptomyces tenebrarius. It is effective against gram-negative bacteria, especially the PSEUDOMONAS species. It is a 10% component of the antibiotic complex, NEBRAMYCIN, produced by the same species.

An anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic glucocorticoid that can be administered orally, by inhalation, locally, and parenterally. It may cause water and salt retention.

A member of the TNF receptor family that was initially identified as a DEXAMETHASONE-induced protein from a T-CELL line. It may play a role in regulating APOPTOSIS and modulating immune response by T-lymphocytes. Signaling by the activated receptor occurs through its association with TNF RECEPTOR-ASSOCIATED FACTORS.
