Also known as:  Acetazolamide.

Description

Diamox contains an active ingredient Acetazolamide, which belongs to class of drugs called carbonic anhydrase inhibitors.

Diamox effectively treats certain types of glaucoma (excessive pressure in the eyes) by reducing the amount of fluid in the eye, and thereby decreases pressure inside the eye.

Acetazolamide acts also as a diuretic ("water pill") and inhibits the protein in the body called carbonic anhydrase. This leads to reducing the build-up of certain fluids in the body, significantly alleviating the symptoms of congestive heart failure.

Acetazolamide is also used to treat certain types of seizures, and to treat or prevent altitude sickness.

Dosage

Diamox is available in tablets.

The dosage depends on the disease and its prescribed treatmen.

Glaucoma treatment:

250 mg to 1 gram per 24 hours in 2 or more smaller doses.

In secondary glaucoma and before surgery in acute congestive (closed-angle) glaucoma, the usual dosage is 250 mg every 4 hours or, in some cases, 250 mg twice a day.

Epilepsy treatment:

The daily dosage is 8 to 30 mg per 2.2 pounds of body weight in 2 or more doses. Typical dosage may range from 375 to 1,000 mg per day.

The medullary raphe nuclei contain putative central respiratory chemoreceptor neurones that are highly sensitive to acidosis. To define the primary stimulus for chemosensitivity in these neurones, the response to hypercapnic acidosis was quantified and compared with the response to independent changes in P(CO2) and extracellular pH (pH(o)). Neurones from the ventromedial medulla of neonatal rats (P0-P2) were dissociated and maintained in tissue culture for long enough to develop a mature response (up to 70 days). Perforated patch clamp recordings were used to record membrane potential and firing rate while changes were made in pH(o), P(CO2) and/or [NaHCO(3)](o) from baseline values of 7.4, 5 % and 26 mM, respectively. Hypercapnic acidosis (P(CO2) 9 %; pH(o) 7.17) induced an increase in firing rate to 285 % of control in one subset of neurones ('stimulated neurones') and induced a decrease in firing rate to 21 % of control in a different subset of neurones ('inhibited neurones'). Isocapnic acidosis (pH(o) 7.16; [NaHCO(3)](o) 15 mM) induced an increase in firing rate of stimulated neurones to 309 % of control, and a decrease in firing rate of inhibited neurones to 38 % of control. In a different group of neurones, isohydric hypercapnia (9 % P(CO2); [NaHCO(3)](o) 40 mM) induced an increase in firing rate of stimulated neurones by the same amount (to 384 % of control) as in response to hypercapnic acidosis (to 327 % of control). Inhibited neurones also responded to isohydric hypercapnia in the same way as they did to hypercapnic acidosis. In Hepes-buffered solution, both types of neurone responded to changes in pH(o) in the same way as they responded to changes in pH(o) in bicarbonate-buffered Ringer solution. It has previously been shown that all acidosis-stimulated neurones in the medullary raphe are immunoreactive for tryptophan hydroxylase (TpOH-ir). Here it was found that TpOH-ir neurones in the medullary raphe were immunoreactive for carbonic anhydrase type II and type IV (CA II and CA IV). However, CA immunoreactivity was also common in neurones of the hypoglossal motor nucleus, inferior olive, hippocampus and cerebellum, indicating that its presence is not uniquely associated with chemosensitive neurones. In addition, under the conditions used here, acetazolamide (100 microM) did not have a significant effect on the response to hypercapnic acidosis. We conclude that chemosensitivity of raphe neurones can occur independently of changes in pH(o), P(CO2) or bicarbonate. The results suggest that a change in intracellular pH (pH(i)) may be the primary stimulus for chemosensitivity in these putative central respiratory chemoreceptor neurones.

Serous cells secrete antibiotic-rich fluid, but secretion is impaired in cystic fibrosis. We are investigating Calu-3 cells as a serous cell model. Basal short-circuit current (I[SC]) in Calu-3 cells grown at air interface had a basal I(SC) approximately six times larger than submerged cultures (69 +/- 22 vs. 11 +/- 10 microA/cm2). Basal I(SC) in either condition was reduced only 7 +/- 5% by bumetanide and was unaffected by apical amiloride, 4,4'-diisothiocyanostilbene-2,2'-disulfonic acid, 4,4'-dinitrostilbene-2,2'-disulfonic acid (DNDS), or calixarene but was reduced 77 +/- 18% by N-phenylanthranilic acid. Three transport mechanisms accounted for almost all basal I(SC). The largest component is HCO3(-)-dependent Cl- secretion. Replacement of Krebs-Henseleit solution with N-2-hydroxyethylpiperazine-N'-2-ethanesulfonic acid-buffered solution and changing gassing from 95% O2-5% CO2 to air reduced the basal I(SC) by 61 +/- 10%. Acetazolamide decreased basal I(SC) by 33 +/- 6%, whereas acetazolamide + basolateral DNDS eliminated 42-58% of the bumetanide-insensitive basal I(SC). Neither DNDS nor acetazolamide had any effect when applied in HCO3(-)-free solution. Apical phlorizin, a blocker of Na+-glucose cotransport, eliminated one-half of the remaining I(SC). Cl- replacement with gluconate eliminated all I(SC) except the phlorizin-sensitive component. Unlike basal I(SC), 80 +/- 24% of stimulated I(SC) was inhibited by bumetanide. Thus basal and stimulated secretions are mediated by different mechanisms.

Na(+)-H+ exchange and Na(+)-dependent HCO3- influx both contribute to recovery of intracellular pH (pHi) after an acidosis induced by using the NH4Cl prepulse technique in mammalian and avian cardiac tissue. We have investigated the relative contributions of these mechanisms to pHi recovery during respiratory acidosis in the Langendorff-perfused ferret heart with and without correction of extracellular pH (pHo). pHi was measured from the chemical shift of the exogenous 31P nuclear magnetic resonance pH indicator 2-deoxy-D-glucose 6-phosphate. Intrinsic intracellular buffering capacity, calculated from the change in intracellular HCO3- concentration after a change in CO2, was reduced from approximately 33 (no inhibitors of acid extrusion present) to 19 +/- 5 mM when H+ extrusion during the acid loading phase was inhibited. During respiratory acidosis (pHo approximately 6.95), the proton efflux rate (JH) calculated at pHi 6.85 was 0.30 +/- 0.04 mmol.l-1.min-1 (n = 9). When pHo was corrected by increasing external HCO3- concentration to 60 mM during respiratory acidosis (pHo approximately 7.33), JH was 1.11 +/- 0.11 mmol.l-1.min-1 (n = 7), and when pHo was partially corrected by the addition of 50 mM N-2-hydroxyethylpiperazine-N'-2-ethanesulfonic acid to the perfusion solution (pHo approximately 7.1), JH was 0.64 +/- 0.08 mmol.l-1.min-1 (n = 6). In all three groups Na(+)-H+ exchange and HCO3- influx each contributed approximately 50% to acid-equivalent efflux.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

The effects of angiotensin II receptor blockers on cerebral hemodynamics in humans have not been well elucidated. The present study evaluated the effects of losartan on cerebral hemodynamics in hypertensive patients using positron emission tomography. Ten patients with essential hypertension (mean age, 60.8 years) were examined. In each patient, regional cerebral blood flow was measured by [O-15] labeled water positron emission tomography before and after the oral administration of losartan for 8 to 23 weeks. In 8 patients, the baseline regional cerebral blood flow measurement was followed by 1,000 mg of acetazolamide challenge to measure the cerebral perfusion reserve. Systemic blood pressures before and after treatment were 153.8 +/- 10.8/96.0 +/- 6.5 mmHg (systolic mean +/- SD/diastolic mean +/- SD) and 133.4 +/- 11.2/83.6 +/- 6.5 mmHg, respectively; this difference was significant. The baseline global cerebral blood flow values before and after treatment were 38.4 +/- 6.9 ml/min/100 g and 38.2 +/- 8.2 ml/min/100 g, respectively; this difference was not significant. The results of the global cerebral blood flow response to the acetazolamide challenges were not statistically different before and after treatment. A regional analysis showed no statistical difference in regional cerebral blood flow or cerebral perfusion reserve throughout the brain before and after treatment. Losartan's effect on reducing the blood pressure did not affect either the baseline regional cerebral blood flow or the cerebral perfusion reserve in patients with mild to moderate hypertension. The inclusion of losartan in anti-hypertensive regimens could be advantageous for cerebral circulation in patients with essential hypertension.

These data indicate that treatment of mouse peritoneal macrophages with zymosan results in production of activities capable of stimulating bone resorption in vitro. The activity released initially appears to be due to a zymosan induced burst of prostanoid production, while the activity released during prolonged exposure to zymosan is due primarily to IL-1alpha.

Experiments were carried out to test the hypothesis that ventilatory and cardiovascular responses to hypercarbia (elevated water P(CO2)) in the tambaqui Colossoma macropomum are stimulated by externally oriented receptors that are sensitive to water CO(2) tension as opposed to water pH. Cardiorespiratory responses to acute hypercarbia were evaluated in both the absence and presence of internal hypercarbia (elevated blood P(CO2)), achieved by treating fish with the carbonic anhydrase inhibitor acetazolamide. Exposure to acute hypercarbia (15 min at each level, final water CO(2) tensions of 7.2, 15.5 and 26.3 mmHg) elicited significant increases in ventilation frequency (at 26.3 mmHg, a 42% increase over the normocarbic value) and amplitude (128%), together with a fall in heart rate (35%) and an increase in cardiac stroke volume (62%). Rapid washout of CO(2) from the water reversed these effects, and the timing of the changes in cardiorespiratory variables corresponded more closely to the fall in water P(CO2) (Pw(CO2)) than to that in blood P(CO2) (Pa(CO2)). Similar responses to acute hypercarbia (15 min, final Pw(CO2) of 13.6 mmHg) were observed in acetazolamide-treated (30 mg kg(-1)) tambaqui. Acetazolamide treatment itself, however, increased Pa(CO2) (from 4.81+/-0.58 to 13.83+/-0.91 mmHg, mean +/-S.E.M.; N=8) in the absence of significant change in ventilation, heart rate or cardiac stroke volume. The lack of response to changes in blood P(CO2) and/or pH were confirmed by comparing responses to the bolus injection of hypercarbic saline (5% or 10% CO(2); 2 ml kg(-1)) into the caudal vein with those to the injection of CO(2)-enriched water (1%, 3%, 5% or 10% CO(2); 50 ml kg(-1)) into the buccal cavity. Whereas injections of hypercarbic saline were ineffective in eliciting cardiorespiratory responses, changes in ventilation and cardiovascular parameters accompanied injection of CO(2)-laden water into the mouth. Similar injections of CO(2)-free water acidified to the corresponding pH of the hypercarbic water (pH 6.3, 5.6, 5.3 or 4.9, respectively) generally did not stimulate cardiorespiratory responses. These results are in agreement with the hypothesis that in tambaqui, externally oriented chemoreceptors that are predominantly activated by increases in water P(CO2), rather than by accompanying decreases in water pH, are linked to the initiation of cardiorespiratory responses to hypercarbia.

Benign intracranial hypertension is known to be associated with obesity, endocrine abnormalities, various medications, and cerebral venous sinus thrombosis. We report a patient presenting with headaches and vomiting attributed to benign intracranial hypertension. The diagnostic work-up revealed Langerhans' cell histiocytosis of the occipital bone. There was no evidence for cerebral vein thrombosis by cranial computed tomography scan, Doppler ultrasonography, planar and single photon emission computed tomography technetium 99m-labelled red blood cell scintigraphy, and magnetic resonance angiography. Excision of the occipital bone lesion and a short course of acetazolamide and prednisone were curative. We hypothesize that cytokines secreted by the tumor were responsible for the development of intracranial hypertension.

We studied respiratory patterns and transcutaneous gas pressures in two infants with Arnold-Chiari type II malformation referred to us due to repeated episodes of stridor and cyanosis. During both active and quiet sleep, respiration was irregular and absent or inverse thoracic breathing movements and frequent decreases in oxygen saturation to below 80% were observed. When breathing air with 2% CO2 or when given acetazolamide 10 mg/kg, chest wall movements normalized and oxygenation increased to near normal levels. After three months of treatment with acetazolamide 20 mg/kg/24 h no further episodes of hypoventilation or hypoxemia were observed and further treatment could be discontinued. We conclude that stimulation of respiration by CO2 or by acetazolamide appears to recruit chest wall muscles and promote upper airway patency in Arnold-Chiari malformation. A treatment trial with acetazolamide seems justifiable in these infants when respiratory problems are present.

Skull base cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak after gamma knife radiosurgery (GKRS) is a very rare complication. In patients who were treated with both GKRS and transsphenoidal resection (TSR) for pituitary lesions, early CSF leak occurs at a comparable rate to the general TSR population (4%). Delayed CSF leak occurring more than a year after TSR, GKRS, or dual therapy, is exceedingly rare.

Optical spectroscopy was used to evaluate mitochondrial anoxia in the isolated perfused rat kidney by determining the percentage of cytochrome aa3 in the reduced state. Despite high levels of plasma flow (greater than 20 ml . g-1 . min-1) and venous PO2 (greater than 300 mmHg), 25--40% of cytochrome aa3 appeared to be in its reduced form. Agents that alter metabolism or transport primarily in renal cortex had little or no effect on the redox state of cytochrome aa3. These included 3-mercaptopicolinate, an inhibitor of gluconeogenesis; 2-tetradecylglycidic acid, an inhibitor of fat metabolism via carnitine-fatty acyltransferase, and acetazolamide. In contrast, a decrease in medullary transport induced by the loop diuretics bumetanide or furosemide produced an increase in cytochrome aa3 oxidation consistent with a decrease in transport-related oxygen consumption in the hypoxic area. The results suggest that substantial portions of the kidney, particularly in the renal medulla, may normally operate on the brink of anoxia despite high PO2 in artery and vein.

[14C]DMO distribution was used to measure steady-state intracellular pH (pHi) and [HCO3]i in adult rat choroid plexus (CP) incubated in synthetic cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) for 30 min. In controls at 37 degrees C, mean pHi (6.95 at PCO2 = 30 mmHg) was close to corresponding in vivo values; and [HCO3]i/[HCO3]csf, i.e., rHCO3, was 0.37. At normal [HCO3]csf = 18 mM, cell HCO3 was accumulated threefold above electrochemical equilibrium (as estimated from Em = -50 mV). [HCO3]i decreased proportionally with [HCO3]csf, as the latter was altered from 47 to 9 mM; in severe extracellular acidosis [( HCO3]csf = 3.7 mM), [HCO3]i was not reduced further and so rHCO3 rose to 0.66. Except in low [HCO3]csf, acetazolamide and ouabain (10(-4) M) caused small depletion of cell HCO3. 4-Acetamido-4'-isothiocyanatostilbene-2,2'-disulfonic acid lowered [HCO3]i by 60%, thus decreasing rHCO3 (0.16) and rCl (0.25) to values close to estimated equilibrium distribution (0.15). Substitution of CSF Cl with isethionate resulted in marked alkalinization of pHi when [Cl]csf was depleted to 12 mM. Augmented PCO2 associated with temperature reduction to 15 degrees C elevated [HCO3]i, thereby increasing rHCO3 (to 0.66) as well as rCl. Anion distribution ratios indicate heteroanion exchange in mammalian CP.

Recently, we have found that pressure-induced hemolysis is enhanced by inhibiting water transport via aquaporin-1 (AQP1), as seen in p-chloromercuribenzoate (pCMB)-treated erythrocytes. So, using this method we reinvestigated the functions as AQP1 inhibitors of drugs and chemicals such as acetazolamide, sodium nitroprusside, tetraethylammonium ions (TEA(+)), and dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO). The values of hemolysis at 200 MPa were almost unaffected by acetazolamide or sodium nitroprusside, decreased by TEA(+), and increased significantly by DMSO. Furthermore, the erythrocytes were exposed to pCMB in the presence of TEA(+) or DMSO. The enhancement effect of pCMB on pressure-induced hemolysis was unaffected by TEA(+) but attenuated by DMSO. Taken together, these results suggest that, of drugs and chemicals examined here, DMSO only is an AQP1 inhibitor, but the effect of DMSO is small compared with pCMB.

The R-post group showed a significant reduction of the infarct size compared to the I/R group. The effect of R-post for reducing infarct size was slightly enhanced by adding acetazolamide to R-post, so significant differences could still be found when compared R-post+Ace group to the I/R group. The effect of infarct size reduction brought by R-post was blocked by the opioid-receptor antagonist compounds. This effect was also blocked by the AQP1 enhancer. Similar outcomes were found considering the water content of the left ventricle and the AQP1 expression.

Compared with baseline or placebo values, there was no measurable improvement in visual acuity on the Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study charts with dorzolamide in any of the patients. The visual acuity in three of five patients, however, improved by seven letters or more with acetazolamide. Compared again with baseline or placebo values, fluorescein angiograms of two of five patients showed improvement in macular edema in both eyes with the use of dorzolamide, whereas all five showed improvement with acetazolamide. The improvement in macular edema was more marked with acetazolamide than with dorzolamide. The effect of dorzolamide given three times a day was the same as that when it was given five times a day. One patient indicated that dorzolamide was more effective than acetazolamide in improving visual function, three of five patients believed that acetazolamide was more effective, and one felt that both were equally effective.

Distal renal tubular acidosis is frequently associated with hypercalciuria. To further investigate the cause-and-effect relationships between the two conditions, we examined 20 children (5 to 18 years of age) with idiopathic hypercalciuria for evidence of renal tubular acidosis. Serum electrolytes and urine citrate levels were normal buy diamox in all subjects. After a single dose of furosemide, 1 of the 20 subjects did not show a decrease in urine pH < 5.5, which suggests an acidification defect in the cortical collecting duct. Three other patients failed to show an increase in urine-minus-blood partial pressure of carbon dioxide > 20 mmHg after urine alkalinization with orally administered acetazolamide, a finding compatible with a rate-dependent distal renal tubular acidosis. These four subjects underwent acute acid loading with arginine hydrochloride. In all four subjects urine pH decreased < 5.5 but urinary ammonium excretion failed to increase normally; this supports the diagnosis of a defect in distal acidification. Four of six patients with nephrolithiasis had evidence of distal renal tubular acidosis, in contrast to none of the 14 patients without stones (p = 0.003). We conclude that distal acidification abilities seem to be intact in children with hypercalciuria in the absence of nephrolithiasis. We speculate that calcium precipitation may lead to tubular damage, including distal renal tubular acidosis.

Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) causes CO2 retention in the brain that leads to the increase in cerebral blood flow (CBF) by poorly understood mechanisms. We have tested the hypothesis that NO is implicated in CBF-responses to hypercapnia under hyperoxic conditions. Alert rats buy diamox were exposed to HBO2 at 5 ata and blood flow in the striatum measured by H2 clearance every 10 min. Acetazolamide, the inhibitor of carbonic anhydrase, was used to increase brain PCO2. CBF responses to acetazolamide administration (30 mg/kg, i.p.) were assessed in rats breathing air at 1 ata or oxygen at 5 ata with and without NOS inhibition (L-NAME, 30 mg/kg, i.p.). In rats breathing air, acetazolamide increased CBF by 34 +/- 7.4% over 30 min and by 28 +/- 12% over 3 hours while NOS inhibition with L-NAME attenuated acetazolamide-induced cerebral vasodilatation. HBO2 at 5 ata reduced CBF during the first 30 min hyperoxia, after that CBF increased by 55 +/- 19% above pre-exposure levels. In acetazolamide-treated animals, no HBO, induced vasoconstricton was observed and striatal blood flow increased by 53 +/- 18% within 10 min of hyperbaric exposure. After NOS inhibition, cerebral vasodilatation in response to acetazolamide during HBO2 exposure was significantly attenuated. The study demonstrates that NO is implicated in acetazolamide (CO2)-induced cerebral hyperemia under hyperbaric oxygen exposure.

A novel homologous series of bis(carbonyl)amidothiadiazole sulfonamides has been synthesized for structure-activity buy diamox relationship studies, and initial characterization has been performed. The goal was synthesis of thiadiazole derivatives with appropriate lipid and water solubilities for utility as topically (corneal application) active carbonic anhydrase (CA) inhibitors. This series has solubility properties and pKa which bracket those of acetazolamide--the prototypical CA inhibitor. All of these compounds are active as in vitro CA inhibitors, and are 10-25% as potent as acetazolamide as in vitro enzyme inhibitors. Two of these compounds act as ocular hypotensive agents after topical application of a single dose to the corneas of normotensive New Zealand albino rabbits. The efficacy of the lead compound of this series (in this one model) is approximately equivalent to that of topical CA inhibitors that are presently in clinical trial. None of these novel compounds reacts to an appreciable extent with free sulfhydryl groups (a predictor of toxicity). This family of compounds will be useful for future studies of ocular pharmacokinetics, as well as ocular and systemic effects of topical administration of CA inhibitors. These and future studies may lead to development of thiadiazole sulfonamides useful in the management of glaucoma.

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) formed during acute high altitude exposure contribute to cerebral vascular leak and development of acute mountain sickness (AMS). Nuclear factor (erythroid-derived 2)-related factor 2 (Nrf2) is a transcription factor that regulates expression of greater than 90% of antioxidant genes, but prophylactic treatment with Nrf2 activators has not yet been tested as an AMS therapy. We hypothesized that prophylactic activation of the antioxidant genome with Nrf2 activators would attenuate high-altitude-induced ROS formation and cerebral vascular leak and that some drugs currently used to treat AMS symptoms have an additional trait of Nrf2 activation. Drugs commonly used to treat AMS were screened with a luciferase reporter cell system for their effectiveness to activate Nrf2, as well as being tested for their ability to decrease high altitude cerebral vascular leak in vivo. Compounds that showed favorable results for Nrf2 activation from our screen and attenuated high altitude cerebral vascular leak in vivo were further tested in brain microvascular endothelial cells (BMECs) to determine if they attenuated hypoxia-induced ROS production and monolayer permeability. Of nine drugs tested, with the exception of dexamethasone, only drugs that showed the ability to activate Nrf2 (Protandim, methazolamide, nifedipine, buy diamox amlodipine, ambrisentan, and sitaxentan) decreased high-altitude-induced cerebral vascular leak in vivo. In vitro, Nrf2 activation in BMECs before 24h hypoxia exposure attenuated hypoxic-induced hydrogen peroxide production and permeability. Prophylactic Nrf2 activation is effective at reducing brain vascular leak from acute high altitude exposures. Compared to acetazolamide, methazolamide may offer better protection against AMS. Nifedipine, in addition to its known vasodilatory activities in the lung and protection against high altitude pulmonary edema, may provide protection against brain vascular leak as well.

We investigated dynamic characteristics of renal blood flow (RBF) autoregulation and relative contribution of underlying mechanisms within the autoregulatory pressure range in rats. Renal arterial pressure (RAP) was reduced by suprarenal aortic constriction for 60 s and then rapidly released. Changes in renal vascular resistance (RVR) were assessed following rapid step reduction and RAP rise. In response to rise, RVR initially fell 5-10% and subsequently increased approximately 20%, reflecting 93% autoregulatory efficiency (AE). Within the initial 7-9 s, RVR rose to 55% of total response providing 37% AE, reaching maximum speed at 2.2 s. A secondary RVR increase began at 7-9 s and reached maximum speed at 10-15 s. Response times suggest that the initial RVR reflects the myogenic response and the secondary tubuloglomerular feedback (TGF). During TGF inhibition by furosemide, AE was 64%. The initial RVR rise was accelerated and enhanced, providing 49% AE, but it represented only 88% of buy diamox total. The remaining 12% indicates a third regulatory component. The latter contributed up to 50% when the RAP increase began below the autoregulatory range. TGF augmentation by acetazolamide affected neither AE nor relative myogenic contribution. Diltiazem infusion markedly inhibited AE and the primary and secondary RVR increases but left a slow component. In response to RAP reduction, initial vasodilation constituted 73% of total response but was not affected by furosemide. The third component's contribution was 9%. Therefore, RBF autoregulation is primarily due to myogenic response and TGF, contributing 55% and 33-45% in response to RAP rise and 73% and 18-27% to RAP reduction. The data imply interaction between TGF and myogenic response affecting strength and speed of myogenic response during RAP rises. The data suggest a third regulatory system contributing <12% normally but up to 50% at low RAP; its nature awaits further investigation.

In hyperoxia, optic disc PO(2) increased moderately (DeltaPO(2) = 4.81 +/- 1.16 mm Hg (mean +/- SD; 24%; P < 0.001) after a much larger increase in systemic PaO(2). Carbogen breathing induced a significant increase in both systemic PaO(2) and PaCO(2), which resulted in a large increase in optic disc PO(2) (DeltaPO(2) = 13.17 +/- 2.18 mm Hg; 67%; P < 0.001). Acetazolamide induced a slow and progressive increase buy diamox in both systemic PaCO(2) and optic disc PO(2) (30 minutes DeltaPO(2) = 4.24 +/- 2.45 mm Hg; 24%; P < 0.04). However, it was when carbogen was simultaneously administered that optic disc PO(2) increased most substantially (DeltaPO(2) = 18.91 +/- 5.23 mm Hg; 90%; P < 0.002).

Medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA) and acetazolamide (ACET) are two ventilatory stimulants which are used in hypoxic and hypercapnic patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). In a double-blind randomised study, the effects of a 2-week treatment with MPA (30 mg b.i.d.) or ACET (250 mg b.i.d.), followed by a 2-week treatment with a combination of both drugs (MPA/ACET), on daytime and nocturnal ventilatory and blood gas parameters in 17 stable hypercapnic COPD patients were investigated. ACET, MPA and MPA/ACET treatment decreased mean daytime carbon dioxide tension in buy diamox arterial blood by 0.4, 0.7 and 1.2 kPa, respectively. Minute ventilation was improved only with combined therapy, from 9.3 to 11.2 L x min(-1). With MPA/ACET therapy, the hypercapnic and hypoxic ventilatory responses significantly increased, from 3.7 to 5.8 L x min(-1) x kPa(-1) and from -0.13 to -0.40 L x min(-1) x %(-1), respectively. The mouth exclusion pressure response to hypoxia increased during combination therapy, from -0.01 to -0.03 kPa %(-1). Nocturnal end-tidal carbon dioxide tension decreased with MPA and MPA/ACET treatment, by 0.9 and 1.4 kPa, respectively. MPA/ACET significantly increased mean nocturnal arterial oxygen saturation values, from 85.5 to 90.2%. The authors conclude that short-term combined treatment with medroxyprogesterone acetate and acetazolamide has a more favourable effect on day and night-time blood gas values and chemical drive than single drug treatment.

Antiglaucoma drugs were studied systematically on the ocular blood flow in ocular hypertensive rabbits. As expected, pilocarpine, clonidine and acetazolamide were all found to increase the ocular blood flow in the retina and choroid. However, their use in the clinics was much less than the beta-blockers, such as L-timolol, levobunolol, betaxolol and metipranolol. It was surprising to find that all non-specific and beta 1-specific adrenergic blockers decreased the ocular blood flow in ocular hypertensive rabbits. If this finding holds true in human patients, the use of beta-blockers for glaucoma treatment should be reconsidered. Dopamine antagonists, such Accutane Generic as droperidol, metoclopramide and loxapine, were found to increase the ocular blood flow. Therefore, they might be able to replace beta-blockers for glaucoma treatment.

A 19-year-old woman with multiple fractures and mild brain injury developed severe cerebral Imodium Ad Dosage fat embolism syndrome after "damage control" orthopaedic surgery. Acetazolamide therapy to manage ocular trauma, in association with hyperchloraemia, caused a profound metabolic acidosis with appropriate compensatory hypocapnia. During ventilator weaning, unexpected brainstem coning followed increased sedation and brief normalisation of arterial carbon dioxide concentration. Autopsy found severe cerebral fat embolism and brain oedema. In patients with multiple trauma, cerebral fat embolism syndrome is difficult to diagnose, and may be more common after delayed fixation of long-bone fractures. Acetazolamide should be used with caution, as sudden restoration of normocapnia during compensated metabolic acidosis in patients with raised intracranial pressure may precipitate coning.

(1) The TMDT demonstrated repeated and consistent spontaneous nonevoked recordings of displacement of the tympanic membrane, reflective of intra-aural pressure, abnormal IPPA ICP in a preselected particular cohort of SIT patients clinically suspected to have an abnormal ICP (i.e., IIH). (2) Test-retest reliability of the TMDT was positive. (3) The results of the TMDT application for identification of an elevated ICP and reduced CC were positive in 10 of 12 particular preselected patients with nonpulsatile, predominantly central-type SIT resistant to attempts for tinnitus relief with instrumentation or medication. These positive findings support clinical and basic science investigations previously reported in the literature. (4) The clinical significance of these preliminary results of an elevated ICP in a particular cohort of SIT patients supports the clinical impression of the presence of an IIH and its influence on the clinical Diflucan Drug Interactions course and overall treatment of SIT. (5) A final conclusion as to the clinical significance of an elevated ICP and reduced CC for IIH and the diagnosis and treatment of tinnitus remains to be established.

Repeated topical administration of 2.5% trifluormethazolamide, a halogenated derivative of methazolamide, resulted in a unilateral decrease in intraocular pressure in rabbits. Mean (+/- S.E.M.) baseline intraocular pressure (19.8 +/- 2.1 mm Hg) was significantly (P less than .05) decreased 30 minutes (16.1 +/- 2.2 mm Hg) and 60 minutes (15.8 +/- 2.7 mm Hg) after drug administration. Trifluormethazolamide did not alter outflow facility. Aqueous humor flow calculated from the tonographic data was reduced 44% and flow measured by fluorophotometry was reduced 29%. Topical delivery of trifluormethazolamide decreased the level of carbon dioxide in the aqueous humor in the treated eye in a manner similar to that observed after systemic administration of carbonic anhydrase inhibitors. Topical administration of 10 Moduretic Medication % acetazolamide did not decrease intraocular pressure. However, topical administration of either trifluormethazolamide or acetazolamide before oral administration of water resulted in a blunting of the water-induced ocular hypertensive response.

Changes in the uterine and umbilical circulations during induced hypercapnia Prandin Cost were studied in nine unanesthetized near-term pregnant sheep. Blood flows were measured with electromagnetic flow transducers and arterial pressures with vascular catheters implanted under anesthesia 2-16 days prior to experiments. Hypercapnia was induced in the fetus alone by giving acetazolamide iv to the fetus, 100-200 mg/kg. Mean fetal arterial Pco2 increased from 49.5 to 63.4 mmHg but no significant changes in umbilical blood flow occurred. Stepwise increases in both maternal and fetal arterial Pco2 were induced by increasing maternal inspired CO2 concentration to a maximum of 12%. No dignificant changes occurred in uterine or umbilical circulations until hypercapnia was severe (maternal arterial Pco2 greater than 60 mmHg, fetal arterial Pco2 greater than 70 mmHg). With severe hypercapnia uterine vascular resistance increased significantly and uterine blood flow decreased despite an increase in maternal arterial pressure; fetal arterial pressure and umbilical blood flow increased significantly, but umbilical vascular resistance did not. We conclude that hypercapnia in conscious pregnant sheep is associated with significant changes in uterine and umbilical circulations, but only when hypercapnia is severe. Carbon dioxide is unlikely to be a factor in normal physiological regulation of the uteroplacental circulation in this species.

It has been discovered on isolated strips of the internal carotid artery of man that changes in extracellular pH influence the effects of hypercapnia that manifest in relaxation of smooth muscles. However, under conditions of pH stabilization within the range of 7.3--7.4 the direct action of hypercapnia was unchanged. Acetazolamide, the blocker of the intracellular carboanhydrase activity, inhibited the effects of hypercapnia. It is inferred that changes in the intracellular H+ are of the greatest importance in the action mode of CO2 on smooth muscles of the vessels, whereas changes in the extracellular pH have but a modulating effect.

1. The rates of the Bohr shift of human red cells and some of its constituent reactions have been studied with a modified Hartridge-Roughton rapid reaction apparatus using an oxygen electrode to measure the progress of the reaction.2. The rate of the Bohr shift was compatible with the hypothesis that the transfer of H(+) across the membrane by means of CO(2) exchange and reaction with buffers is generally the rate-limiting step.(a) When the Bohr off-reaction was produced by a marked increase in P(CO2) around the cells, the half-time at 37 degrees C was 0.12 sec. In this case CO(2) was available initially to diffuse into the cells, the process being predominantly limited by the rate of intracellular CO(2) hydration.(b) When the Bohr off-shift was produced by an increase of [H(+)] outside the cell, P(CO2) being low and equal within and outside the cells, the half time became 0.31 sec. In this case, even at the start, the H(2)CO(3) formed by the almost instantaneous neutralization reaction of H(+) and HCO(3) (-) had to dehydrate to form CO(2) and this in turn had to diffuse into and react within the red cell before the [HbO(2)] could change. When a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor was added to slow the CO(2) reaction inside the cell, the half-time rose to 10 sec.(c) The Bohr off-shift in a haemolysed cell suspension produced by an increase in P(CO2) appeared to be limited by the rate at which the CO(2) could hydrate to form H(+).3. The Bohr off-shift has an average Q(10) of 2.5 between 42.5 and 28 degrees C with an activation energy of 8000 cal.4. The pronounced importance of the CO(2)-bicarbonate system for rapid intracellular pH changes is discussed in connexion with some physiological situations.
