Multiple Dose, Dose Response Over 24 Hours Using the Novel, Topical Carbonic Anhydrase Inhibitor MK-927
The multiple dose, dose response curve of the topical carbonic anhydrase inhibitor MK-927 administered every 12 h was investigated in 20 patients with primary open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. Three concentrations of MK-927 (2%, 1%, and 0.5%) and placebo were administered in a double-blind randomized, placebo-controlled, 14 day parallel study by means of multiple 25 h diurnal intraocular pressure curves measured at one center within the framework of a larger, five center trial. Fourteen days of dosing with 2% MK-927 given every 12 h significantly decreases intraocular pressure through 12 h postdose (peak mean decrease in the worse eye of 7.4 mm Hg and mean percent decrease of 26% at 2 h postdose) compared to prestudy. A numerical dose response relationship was observed and 0.5% MK-927 given twice daily appears to be a minimal-effect dose.
