Drug-Induced Retinal Toxicity.

Adv Exp Med Biol 2018 ;1085:227-232

Department of Ophthalmology, Columbia University, Edward S. Harkness Eye Institute, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, New York, NY, USA.

Drug-induced retinal toxicity can occur from the use of systemic, intravitreal, or topical medications. Despite the presence of the blood-ocular barrier, the retina is vulnerable to toxic effects of systemic medications leading to dysfunction and retinal degeneration. These toxicities can be categorized as damage to the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and photoreceptor complex, vascular damage, ganglion cell or optic nerve damage, cystoid macular edema, crystalline retinopathy, uveitis, changes in color vision and electroretinography (ERG), and other miscellaneous effects.

Drug-induced Subacute Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus Caused by a Topical Beta Blocker - Timolol.

Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2018 Apr;26(1):44-47

Monika Bilewicz-Stebel, MD Department of Internal Medicine, Dermatology and Allergology, Curie-Skłodowskiej 10, 41-800 Zabrze, Poland, School of Public Health Medical University of Silesia in Katowice 40-027 Katowice, Poland;

Drug-induced lupus erythematosus (DI-LE) is an autoimmune condition secondary to a recent pharmacological intervention. There are no established specific diagnostic criteria for DI-LE, and the disease is recognized based on the medical history of the patient. Typically, the onset is closely related to a recent drug exposure, and the disease terminates after discontinuation of the inducing factor. Read More

Metabolic acidosis and anaemia associated with dorzolamide in a patient with impaired renal function.

Br J Clin Pharmacol 2018 Apr 14;84(4):796-799. Epub 2018 Jan 14.

Laboratory of Cellular and Molecular Immunology, Institute of Microbiology of the Czech Academy of Sciences, v.v.i., Prague, Czech Republic.

Topical carbonic anhydrase inhibitors (CAI), used for treatment of glaucoma, are generally regarded as safe and unconnected with systemic side effects. We report an unusual case of fatigue, metabolic acidosis, and normocytic anaemia associated with ocular administration of the CAI, dorzolamide, in a patient with impaired renal function. In chronic kidney disease, where CAI elimination may be decreased, and patients prone to develop metabolic acidosis, systemic absorption of ocular administered CAI could lead to rare, but potentially serious adverse reaction, that are a consequence of inhibition of extraocular carbonic anhydrase isoenzymes.

Ocular Surface and External Filtration Surgery: Mutual Relationships.

Dev Ophthalmol 2017 25;59:67-79. Epub 2017 Apr 25.

Department of Ophthalmology III, Quinze-Vingts National Ophthalmology Hospital, Sorbonne Universités, UPMC University Paris 06, INSERM, CNRS, Institut de la Vision, Paris, and University of Versailles, Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, France.

There is a large body of evidence from clinical and experimental studies indicating that the long-term use of topical drugs may induce ocular surface changes, causing ocular discomfort, dry eye, conjunctival inflammation, subconjunctival fibrosis, corneal surface impairment, and, as a consequence of chronic ocular surface changes, the potential risk of failure for further glaucoma surgery. Subclinical inflammation has also been widely described in patients receiving antiglaucoma treatments for long periods of time, with inflammatory cell infiltration and fibroblast activation in the conjunctiva and subconjunctival space. Preservatives, especially benzalkonium chloride, which has consistently demonstrated its toxic effects in laboratory, experimental, and clinical studies, could induce or enhance such inflammatory changes, and has been recently confirmed as a direct risk factor of surgical failure.

Nanoparticle Modified Drug Loaded Biodegradable Polymeric Contact Lenses for Sustainable Ocular Drug Delivery.

Curr Drug Deliv 2017 ;14(4):555-565

National Centre for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, University of Madras, Guindy Campus, Chennai 600025, Tamil Nadu, India.

Background: Glaucoma, a chronic eye condition caused by progressive degeneration of retinal ganglion cells may result in permanent blindness. The restricted efficiency of currently available glaucoma treatments has awakened a global need for designing a novel anti-glaucoma drug delivery mechanism that targets the drug to the site of action in a sustained manner with less toxicity and side effects. With reference to this global problem in the present study, we have fabricated a biodegradable transparent polymeric material loaded with minimum amount of anti-glaucoma drug, acetazolamide.

Intraocular pressure-lowering effect of oral paracetamol and its in vitro corneal penetration properties.

Clin Ophthalmol 2013 30;7:219-27. Epub 2013 Jan 30.

Division of Ophthalmology, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, University of Stellenbosch, Cape Town, South Africa.

Background: Several studies have confirmed the ability of cannabinoids to reduce intraocular pressure. Experimental data recently demonstrated unequivocally that the analgesic effect of paracetamol is due to its indirect action on cannabinoid receptors. The question then arises as to whether paracetamol can reduce intraocular pressure via its effect on intraocular cannabinoid receptors. Read More

Ocular surface and external filtration surgery: mutual relationships.

Dev Ophthalmol 2012 17;50:64-78. Epub 2012 Apr 17.

Department of Ophthalmology III, Quinze-Vingts National Ophthalmology Hospital, INSERM, UPMC University Paris, Institut de la Vision, Paris, France. baudouin@quinze- vingts.fr

There is a large body of evidence from clinical and experimental studies that the long-term use of topical drugs may induce ocular surface changes, causing ocular discomfort, dry eye, conjunctival inflammation, subconjunctival fibrosis, corneal surface impairment, and, as a consequence of chronic ocular surface changes, the potential risk of failure for further glaucoma surgery. Subclinical inflammation has also been widely described in patients receiving antiglaucoma treatments for long periods of time, with inflammatory cell infiltration and fibroblast activation in the conjunctiva and subconjunctival space. The preservative, especially benzalkonium chloride, which has consistently demonstrated its toxic effects in laboratory, experimental, and clinical studies, could induce or enhance such inflammatory changes.

Drug-induced Angle-Closure Glaucoma.

J Curr Glaucoma Pract 2012 Jan-Apr;6(1):6-8. Epub 2012 Oct 16.

Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences, Rohtak, Haryana, India.

Drug-induced angle-closure glaucoma is an important entity for the ophthalmologist as well as the general physician as it represents a preventable cause of potential blindness. This brief review highlights the fact that a high index of suspicion, in a susceptible individual followed by confirmation on appropriate imaging modality (UBM, ultrasound or anterior segment OCT) can alleviate the threat to sight and also help to institute appropriate therapy.

Differential protein expression in tears of patients with primary open angle and pseudoexfoliative glaucoma.

Mol Biosyst 2012 Apr 29;8(4):1017-28. Epub 2011 Nov 29.

Department of Biomedical Sciences, University G. d'Annunzio of Chieti-Pescara, Via dei Vestini, 66100 Chieti, Italy.

Primary open angle (POAG) and pseudoexfoliative glaucoma (PXG) are the most common primary and secondary forms of glaucoma, respectively. Even though the patho-physiology, aqueous humor composition, risk factors, clinical features, therapy and drug induced ocular surface changes in POAG and PXG have been widely studied, to date information concerning tear protein characterization is lacking. Tears are a source of nourishment for ocular surface tissues and a vehicle to remove local waste products, metabolized drugs and inflammatory mediators produced in several ophthalmic diseases.

Are phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors associated with vision-threatening adverse events? A critical analysis and review of the literature.

J Sex Med 2011 Oct 19;8(10):2894-903. Epub 2011 Jul 19.

Department of Urology, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Buffalo, NY 14263, USA.

Introduction: Phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors are the first line drugs for treatment of erectile dysfunction. Sildenafil (Viagra(R)), tadalafil (Cialis(R)), and vardenafil (Levitra(R)) are from the same class of drugs that inhibit PDE5. Transient visual symptoms such as change in color perception and increased light sensitivity are well-known adverse effects of these drugs and occur in 3-11% of sildenafil users. Read More

Non-steroidal drug-induced glaucoma.

Eye (Lond) 2011 Aug 3;25(8):971-80. Epub 2011 Jun 3.

Glaucoma Service, Wills Eye Institute, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Numerous systemically used drugs are involved in drug-induced glaucoma. Most reported cases of non-steroidal drug-induced glaucoma are closed-angle glaucoma (CAG). Indeed, many routinely used drugs that have sympathomimetic or parasympatholytic properties can cause pupillary block CAG in individuals with narrow iridocorneal angle. Read More

Effect of latanoprost on choroidal blood flow regulation in healthy subjects.

Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 2011 Jun 22;52(7):4410-5. Epub 2011 Jun 22.

Department of Clinical Pharmacology, Medical University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria.

Purpose: The present study tested the hypothesis that human choroidal blood flow (ChBF) regulation in the face of changes in ocular perfusion pressure (OPP) may be modified by a drug-induced decrease in intraocular pressure (IOP).

Methods: This hypothesis was tested in a double-masked, randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel-group trial in 24 healthy volunteers. OPP was manipulated by 6 minutes of squatting and a subsequent period of artificial increase in IOP induced with a suction cup. Read More
