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.

Techniques have been developed for studying the distribution and the rates of exchange of K among urine, the tubular cells, and the circulation in the isolated, pump-perfused, bullfrog kidney. Tubular cells were loaded with 42K via the portal circulation, and the subsequent washout of the tracer into the vena cava and into urine was measured. Analysis of the data indicated the existence of at least three cellular pools of K. Pools a and b have half times of exchange of 1.1 and 4.1 min and contain about 25 and 40% of tissue K, respectively. The remainder of cellular K is contained in one or more very slowly exchanging pools. The rate of exchange of K at the basolateral surface of tubular cells is 50-fold greater than at the luminal surface. A pulse-washout method was also devised to permit control and experimental measurements to be made in the same kidney. With this technique, we found that portal perfusion with 10 mM K increased the rate of uptake into pools a and b from the circulation and the rate constants for efflux into the urine from both pools, Acetazolamide increased uptake into pool a and the rate constants for efflux into the urine from both pools.

A patient with recessive generalized congenital myotonia and severe, disabling weakness underwent various forms of treatment while being monitored electrophysiologically. Phenytoin, verapamil, and acetazolamide were ineffective, but tocainide yielded good results. Improvement was dose-dependent, and was limited by irritability and action tremor when the patient was taking 1,600 mg per day.

Modification of the unusually feeble responses of aortic chemoreceptors to CO2 was studied in cats which were anethetized, paralyzed, artificially ventilated and maintained at 38 degrees C. The inhibitor of oxidative phosphorylation, oligomycin, strikingly augmented the initial responses to CO2 of aortic chemoreceptors just as for carotid chemoreceptors, indicating that the basic mechanism of chemoreception might be regulated in part through energy metabolism.

Recent studies have suggested that cognitive impairment may be a common complication in adults with moyamoya disease (MMD). However, the mechanisms of cognitive dysfunction have not been clarified. Whether cognitive impairment may occur as a consequence of cerebral hypoperfusion and may improve after revascularization surgery has not been determined. A 39-year-old West Indian woman with subacute dysexecutive cognitive syndrome and no history of stroke was diagnosed with MMD. Magnetic resonance imaging showed an old, small cerebral infarction in the left frontal white matter and no evidence of recent cerebral ischemia. Perfusion MR imaging with acetazolamide challenge demonstrated a reduced cerebrovascular reserve in both frontal lobes. Revascularization with bur hole surgery was performed, which resulted in complete regression of initial cognitive impairment. Improvement in cognitive function correlated with the development of transdural collaterals on angiography and improvement in cerebral perfusion on MR imaging. This case suggests a relationship between cognitive dysfunction and cerebral hypoperfusion in MMD. Cognitive impairment may be potentially reversible after bur hole surgery and cerebral perfusion improvement.

It has been shown in experiments on rats with transplanted sarcoma 45 that cyclophosphane (10 mg/kg) and 6-mercaptopurine (25 mg/kg) produced hemodynamic changes in the kidneys, as well as swelling of the endothelium of the glomerular capillaries and of the epithelium of the tubules, and focal interstitial fibrosis. Concurrent administration of antineoplastic drugs with diacarb (200 mg/kg) or furosemide (50 mg/kg) returned the hemodynamics to normal and reduced nephrotoxicity of the antineoplastic drugs used.

STA-MCA bypass surgery can restore cerebrovascular reserve in high-risk patients with symptomatic internal carotid artery occlusion. This was achieved with minimal perioperative complications, resulting in a subsequent reduction of stroke frequency. We suggest that the efficacy of STA-MCA bypass surgery for symptomatic carotid occlusion be re-examined prospectively using hemodynamic selection criteria.

Anion exchanger AE2, CAII, and CAIV were abundant in the NPE layer. In cultured NPE superfused with a CO(2)/HCO(3)(-)-free HEPES buffer, exposure to a CO(2)/HCO(3)(-)-containing buffer caused rapid acidification followed by a gradual increase in pH(i). Subsequent removal of CO(2)/HCO(3)(-) with HEPES buffer caused rapid alkalinization followed by a gradual decrease in pH(i). The rate of gradual alkalinization after the addition of HCO(3)(-)/CO(2) was inhibited by sodium-free conditions, DIDS, and the CA inhibitors acetazolamide and methazolamide but not by the Na-H exchange inhibitor dimethylamiloride or low-chloride buffer. The phase of gradual acidification after removal of HCO(3)(-)/CO(2) was inhibited by DIDS, acetazolamide, methazolamide, and low-chloride buffer. DIDS reduced baseline pH(i). In the intact eye, DIDS and acetazolamide reduced AH secretion by 25% and 44%, respectively.

The aim of this prospective study was to investigate whether decreased cerebrovascular reactivity to acetazolamide, as determined by single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), is an independent predictor of the 5-year risk of subsequent stroke in patients with symptomatic major cerebral artery occlusion. Cerebrovascular reactivity to acetazolamide in the middle cerebral artery (MCA) territory ipsilateral to the occluded artery was determined on the basis of two different methodologies: cerebral blood flow (CBF) percent change obtained quantitatively from xenon-133 (133Xe) SPECT, and asymmetry index (AI) percent change obtained qualitatively from N-isopropyl-p-[123I]-iodoamphetamine (IMP) SPECT. Seventy patients with unilateral internal carotid artery or MCA occlusion were divided into two groups within each SPECT methodology (normal or decreased CBF percent change and AI percent change) and followed up for 5 years. Cumulative recurrence-free survival rates for patients with decreased CBF percent change were significantly lower than for those with normal CBF percent change (P = 0.0205). There was no significant difference in cumulative recurrence-free survival rates between patients with decreased AI percent change and those with normal AI percent change. Only decreased CBF percent change was a significant independent predictor of stroke recurrence (P = 0.0051). The present study demonstrated that decreased cerebrovascular reactivity to acetazolamide determined quantitatively by 133Xe SPECT is an independent predictor of the 5-year risk of subsequent stroke in patients with symptomatic major cerebral artery occlusion, and that the qualitative method using 123I-IMP SPECT is a poor predictor of the risk of subsequent stroke in this type of patient.

Cell pH (pHc) was examined by the [14C]DMO technique in suspensions of proximal tubule fragments from rabbit renal cortex. In buffer with 10 mM HCO3(-), pHc was more alkaline than external pH (pHe) at values of the latter < 7.4. Maximal cell-to-extracellular pH gradients (delta pH) occurred at pHe = 6.8 and below. At pHe > 7.4, pHc was more acid than pHe was. However, pHc was always more alkaline than the electrochemical equilibrium pH. At pHe congruent to 7.0, 60 min of deoxygenation decreased delta pH from 0.22 +/- 0.02 to 0.05 +/- 0.01. Reoxygenation restored delta pH to control values. Incubation with ouabain abolished the delta pH. Both the carbonic anhydrase inhibitor, acetazolamide, and the anion transport inhibitor, 4-acetamido-4'-isothiocyano-2,2'-disulfonic stilbene (SITS), increased delta pH. The studies demonstrate relative intracellular alkalinity in proximal tubule. A fall in pHc occurs with maneuvers that interfere with H+ pumping out of the cells. A rise in pHc occurs with maneuvers that interfere with the disposition of intracellular alkali: slowing of HCO3(-) generation with acetazolamide or blocking of HCO3(-) exit with SITS. The results support a H+-secretory model of proximal tubule acid transport that is dependent on maintenance and dispersal of intracellular alkalinity.

We describe and use a CO2 diffusion pipette to produce a quickly reversible focal acidosis in the retrotrapezoid nucleus region of the rat brain stem. No tissue injection is made. Instead, artificial cerebrospinal fluid (aCSF) equilibrated with CO2 circulates within the micropipette, providing a source for continued CO2 diffusion into the tissue from the pipette tip. Tissue pH electrodes show the acidosis is limited to 500 micron from the tip. In controls (aCSF equilibrated with air), 1-min pipette perfusions increased tissue pH slightly and decreased phrenic nerve amplitude. In moderate- and high-CO2 groups (aCSF equilibrated with 50 or 100% CO2), 1-min perfusions significantly decreased tissue pH and increased phrenic nerve amplitude in a dose-dependent manner. The responses developed and reversed within minutes. Compared with our prior use of medullary acetazolamide injections to produce a focal acidosis, in this approach the acidosis 1) arises and reverses quickly and 2) its intensity can be varied. This allows study of sensitivity and mechanism. We conclude from this initial experiment that retrotrapezoid nucleus region chemoreceptors operate within the normal physiological range of CO2-induced tissue pH changes.

Carbonic anhydrases are a widely expressed family of enzymes that catalyze the reversible reaction: CO(2) + H(2)O <=> HCO(3)(-) + H(+). These enzymes therefore both produce HCO(3)(-) for transport across membranes and consume HCO(3)(-) that has been transported across membranes. Thus these enzymes could be expected to have a key role in driving the transport of HCO(3)(-) across cells and epithelial layers. Plasma membrane anion exchange proteins (AE) transport chloride and bicarbonate across most mammalian membranes in a one-for-one exchange reaction and act as a model for our understanding of HCO(3)(-) transport processes. Recently it was shown that AE1, found in erythrocytes and kidney, binds carbonic anhydrase II (CAII) via the cytosolic C-terminal tail of AE1. To examine the physiological consequences of the interaction between CAII and AE1, we characterized Cl(-)/HCO(3)(-) exchange activity in transfected HEK293 cells. Treatment of AE1-transfected cells with acetazolamide, a CAII inhibitor, almost fully inhibited anion exchange activity, indicating that endogenous CAII activity is essential for transport. Further experiments to examine the role of the AE1/CAII interaction will include measurements of the transport activity of AE1 following mutation of the CAII binding site. In a second approach a functionally inactive CA mutant, V143Y, will be co-expressed with AE1 in HEK293 cells. Since over expression of V143Y CAII would displace endogenous wild-type CAII from AE1, a loss of transport activity would be observed if binding to the AE1 C-terminus is required for transport.

Tubular fluid flow, urine osmolality, and pH were selectively altered to determine the relative protective roles of these factors in a rat model of acute urate nephrophathy. Various prehyper uricemic conditions were established in five groups of animals: (a) normopenic Wistar rats given no pretreatment (Group I); (b) Wistar rats given acetazolamide, 20 mg/kg, and isotonic NaHCO3 to produce urine alkalinization (Group II); (c) Wistar rats in which a moderate diuresis, similar to that observed in Group II but without urine alkalinization, was induced with furosemide, 2 mg/kg (Group III); (d) Wistar rats in which a high-flow solute diuresis was induced with furosemide, 15 mg/kg (Group IV); (e) Brattleboro rats, homozygous for pituitary diabetes insipidus, that had a spontaneous high-flow water diuresis (Group V). A comparable level of hyperuricemia (19.4+/-2.2 mg/100 ml) was achieved in all animals with intravenous urate infusion. Clearance and micropuncture studies were performed before and 1 h after induction of hyperuicemia. Group I rats had mean falls in renal plasma flow and glomerular filtration rate of 83 and 86%, respectively; nephron filtration rate decreased 66%, and tubular and microvascular pressures increased twofold. In Group II there were 45 and 47% declines in renal plasma flow and glomerular filtration rate, respectively, a 66% fall in nephron filtration rate, and a 30% increase in tubular and vascular pressures. Moderate amounts of urate were seen in the kidneys. Group III had changes in renal function identical to Group II suggesting that the moderate prehyperuricemic diuresis in the latter group and not urine alkalinization produced the partial protection observed. Groups IV and V were completely and comparably protected with renal function studies unchanged from controls. It is concluded that high tubular fluid flow, whether induced by a solute or water diuresis, is the primary mechanism of protection in acute urate nephropathy. At most, urine alkalinization plays a minor preventive role.

We aimed to determine the effects of angiotensin II receptor blocker on cerebral hemodynamics and rehabilitative outcome. Sixteen hypertensive patients with a history of stroke received 10-20 mg olmesartan daily for eight weeks. Blood pressure decreased after treatment compared with the baseline, whereas cerebral blood flow (CBF) values of the affected and nonaffected sides increased. The results of the cerebrovascular reserve capacity were also statistically increased in the affected side. Improvements were observed in three rehabilitative outcome parameters. These findings suggest that olmesartan has beneficial effects in hypertensive patients with stroke and impaired CBF autoregulation, and might improve cerebral circulation and rehabilitative outcome.

Micro-cannulation of the anterior chamber was used to measure IOP in wild-type B6.129 hybrid mice following treatment with ROCK inhibitors Y-27632 or Y-39983. For comparative purposes, wild-type mice were also treated with timolol, acetazolamide, pilocarpine, or latanoprost. Mice deficient in either Rock1 or Rock2 were generated by homologous recombination or gene trapping, respectively, and their IOP was determined using identical methods employed in the pharmacology studies.

The cat carotid chemoreceptor O2 and CO2 responses can be separated by oligomycin and by antimycin A. Both of these agents greatly diminish or abolish the chemoreceptor O2 response but not the nicotine or CO2 responses. After either oligomycin or antimycin, the responses to increases and decreases in arterial CO2 partial pressure (PaCO2) consisted of increases and decreases in activity characterized respectively by exaggerated overshoots and undershoots. These were eliminated by the carbonic anhydrase inhibitor, acetazolamide, suggesting that they resulted from changes in carotid body tissue pH. The steady-state PaCO2 response remaining after oligomycin was no longer dependent on arterial O2 partial pressure (PaO2). All effects of antimycin were readily reversible in about 20 min. The separation of the responses to O2 and CO2 indicates that there may be at least partially separate pathways of chemoreception for these two stimuli. The similarity of the oligomycin and antimycin results supports the metabolic hypothesis of chemoreception.

Dorzolamide significantly inhibits CA activity in BCECs at micromolar levels. Because these levels are encountered in the cornea and aqueous humor after topical administration, dorzolamide may compromise corneal hydration control, especially when the functional reserve of corneal endothelium is low. Dorzolamide does not appear to accumulate in the cells, because the inhibition of CA-II did not increase after prolonged exposure to the drug.

Resting MCAV was similar on both sides in all groups. A significant side-difference of the MCAV values after acetazolamide was observed only in the symptomatic groups. Difference of cerebrovascular reserve capacity between the affected and non-affected side was statistically significant only in the symptomatic groups (CRC symptomatic stenosis 36.6 +/- 20.9% vs. 71.1 +/- 27.9%, CRC symptomatic occlusion: 31.2 +/- 24.6% vs. 64.5 +/- 29.7%). Asymmetry index of the CRC was near to 1 in the asymptomatic stenosis group only, while in all the other groups this index referred to a significant hemispheric asymmetry of the vasoreactivity.

Based on the observed active-site binding interactions of CAIs in crystal structures and their respective inhibition constants, structure-activity relationships can be mapped. Various CAIs along with novel techniques to administer them have been patented in the last four years. However, epilepsy continues to be a path less traveled when it comes to CAIs. A major area of research must focus toward the design of isoform-specific inhibitors using analogs of existing CAIs.

1. Alkaline extracellular pH transients evoked by afferent stimulation, and local pressure ejection of glutamate and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), were studied in the CA1 region of rat hippocampal slices. Amino acid-evoked responses were obtained by use of a dual micromanipulator, with the tip of a double-barreled pH-sensitive microelectrode positioned 50 microns from a pressure ejection pipette. 2. At 31 degrees C, in Ringer solutions buffered with 26 mM HCO3- and 5% CO2, mean extracellular pH in submerged 300-microns slices was 7.15 +/- 0.12 (n = 27 slices), at a tissue depth of approximately 150 microns. In Ringer buffered with 35 mM HCO3- and 5% CO2, extracellular pH was 7.29 +/- 0.10 (n = 19 slices). 3. Repetitive stimulation of the Schaffer collaterals caused an extracellular alkaline shift in stratum oriens, pyramidale, and radiatum, averaging 0.05 +/- 0.03 pH units among all regions (n = 138), with a maximum response of 0.16 pH units. Alkaline transients of similar appearance were obtained by local ejection of glutamate (0.01-0.12 pH units, n = 110) and GABA (0.01-0.18 pH units, n = 137). Control ejection of these amino acids into dilute agar caused only small acid shifts. 4. Superfusion of 100 microM picrotoxin abolished the GABA-evoked alkaline shift but failed to inhibit the Schaffer collateral- and glutamate-evoked alkalinizations. 5. Superfusion of 10(-5)-10(-3) M acetazolamide acidified the baseline by 0.05-0.10 pH units and amplified the Schaffer collateral- and glutamate-evoked alkaline shifts.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Carbonic anhydrase-1 (CA-1) is a metalloenzyme present at high concentrations in erythrocytes. Our previous studies showed that erythrocyte lysis contributes to brain edema formation after intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) and a recent study indicates that CA-1 can cause blood-brain barrier disruption. The present study investigated the role of CA-1 in ICH-induced brain injury.There were three groups in the study. In the first, adult male Sprague-Dawley rats received 100 μl autologous blood injection into the right caudate. Sham rats had a needle insertion. Rat brains were used for brain CA-1 level determination. In the second group, rats received an intracaudate injection of either 50 μl CA-1 (1 μg/μl) or saline. Brain water content, microglia activation and neuronal death (Fluoro-Jade C staining) were examined 24 hours later. In the third group, acetazolamide (AZA, 5 μl, 1 mM), an inhibitor of carbonic anhydrases, or vehicle was co-injected with 100 μl blood. Brain water content, neuronal death and behavioral deficits were measured. We found that CA-I levels were elevated in the ipsilateral basal ganglia at 24 hours after ICH. Intracaudate injection of CA-1 induced brain edema (79.0 ± 0.6 vs. 78.0±0.2% in saline group, p<0.01), microglia activation and neuronal death (p<0.01) at 24 hours. AZA, an inhibitor of CA, reduced ICH-induced brain water content (79.3 ± 0.7 vs. 81.0 ± 1.0% in the vehicle-treated group, p<0.05), neuronal death and improved functional outcome (p<0.05).These results suggest that CA-1 from erythrocyte lysis contributes to brain injury after ICH.

MMD patients without focal cerebral lesion frequently exhibit cerebral hypoperfusion. MMD patients with frontal and parietal hypoperfusion had abnormal CNT profiles, similar to those with frontal and parietal lesions. It is suggested that the hypoperfusion territory on brain SPECT without focal lesion may affect the characteristics of neurocognitive dysfunction in MMD patients.

In a series of 20 consecutive patients with pseudotumor cerebri, five patients had a protracted course of the disease with complaints of persistent disturbances in learning and memory functions. Neuropsychological examination disclosed a light general intellectual impairment with most marked disturbances in verbal tests. After intensive medical treatment or ventriculo-atrial shunt operation, psychological re-examination showed improvement in the test results in accordance with the improvement of the patients' occupational and social situation. Cognitive dysfunction can be the result of a prolonged course of benign intracranial hypertension, and the term "benign" may be misleading in these cases. However, the intellectual impairment, even when long-standing, seems to be reversible in most patients after medical or surgical buy diamox online measures to lower the intracranial pressure.

Climbers who have suffered a previous episode of high altitude pulmonary edema buy diamox online (HAPE) are at significantly increased risk of developing it again on return to high altitude. In spite of the high mortality associated with HAPE, some climbers are willing to take this risk in order to summit the tallest mountains in the world. This is a case report of a climber who suffered an episode of HAPE partway up Mount Everest. He was determined to complete his summit attempt that same climbing season, which would involve a return to extreme altitude less than 3 weeks following recovery. Based on experimental evidence suggesting that sildenafil, salmeterol, and acetazolamide may have therapeutic value for both the prevention and treatment of HAPE, he used these medications for secondary prevention. He was able to successfully reach the summit of Mount Everest and return to base camp without any evidence of recurrence of pulmonary edema. This provides clinical evidence that medication can be used to increase the safety margin for HAPE-susceptible individuals traveling to extremely high altitudes.

In order to enhance the ocular bioavailability of acetazolamide (ACZ), a multicomponent complex with hydroxypropyl-ss-cyclodextrin (HP-ss-CD) and triethanolamine (TEA) was prepared to be applied topically. In vitro corneal permeation across isolated rabbit cornea of proposed ACZ formulations and the marketed AZOPT(R) formulation (1% w/v brinzolamide) was studied. Formulations were also tested for their effect on the intraocular pressure (IOP) in rabbits. (1)H- and (13)C-NMR experiments were undertaken to verify the real inclusion of ACZ in the ACZ-HP-ss-CD-TEA multicomponent complex. The binding of ACZ to HP-ss-CD in the presence of TEA is described. The increase of TEA concentration decreases the apparent equilibrium constant for the ACZ-HP-ss-CD complex. The ternary system ACZ-HP-ss-CD-TEA seemed to be able to reduce IOP in about 30%. This effect was sustained for 4 h after instillation. In vitro corneal permeation studies demonstrated that the ACZ permeation was increased. RMN experiments indicated that TEA can weaken the association between ACZ and HP-ss-CD increasing the drug ocular hypotensive effect by increasing the free drug available for absorption.

Five family members were examined because of occurrence since childhood of recurrent episodes characterized by vertigo, dysarthria and gait ataxia. Analysis of the pedigree was consistent with an autosomal dominant mode of inheritance. Though asymptomatic between attacks, all the patients presented on examination a gaze-evoked and rebound nystagmus associated with a saccadic pursuit, a deficient optokinetic response buy diamox online and an inability to suppress the horizontal oculo-vestibular reflex by fixation; hypermetric saccades and truncal ataxia were also present in most of them. A sixth family member, aged 6 years, was found to present a gaze-evoked nystagmus but was completely asymptomatic. Response of the attacks to acetazolamide therapy (250 mg twice a day) was assessed in two patients and was either partial or complete. A positron emission tomography (PET) study was realized between ataxic spells in one patient and demonstrated a decrease of glucose metabolism in the whole cerebellum, the inferior part of the temporal lobes and the thalami. These PET data as well as the detailed neuro-ophthalmological findings bring new informations about acetazolamide-responsive hereditary paroxysmal ataxia, a rare but probably often misdiagnosed and treatable disorder.

The mechanisms of paradoxical aggravation of epileptic seizures induced by selected antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) remain unclear. The present study addressed this issue by determining the seizure-threshold doses of carbamazepine (CBZ) and phenytoin (PHT), as well the dose-dependent effects of CBZ, PHT, and carbonic anhydrase Norvasc Drug -inhibiting AEDs, acetazolamide (AZM), topiramate (TPM), and zonisamide (ZNS), on neurotransmitter release in rat hippocampus. The dose-dependent effects of AEDs on hippocampal extracellular levels of glutamate (Glu), GABA, norepinephrine (NE), dopamine (DA), and serotonin (5-HT) were determined by microdialysis with high-speed and high-sensitive extreme liquid chromatography. Proconvulsive effects of AEDs were determined by telemetric-electrocorticography. Therapeutically relevant doses of AZM, CBZ, TPM, and ZNS increased hippocampal extracellular levels of GABA, NE, DA, and 5-HT, while PHT had no effect. Supratherapeutic doses of AZM, CBZ, PHT, TPM, and ZNS decreased extracellular levels of GABA, NE, DA, and 5-HT, without affecting Glu levels. Toxic doses of CBZ and PHT produced seizures (paradoxical intoxication), markedly increasing all transmitter levels, but TPM and ZNS even at toxic doses did not produce seizure. Co-administration experiments showed that therapeutically relevant doses of CBZ or PHT reduced the seizure-threshold doses of PHT or CBZ, respectively. In contrast, therapeutically relevant doses of AZM, TPM, and ZNS elevated the seizure-threshold doses of CBZ and PHT. These results suggested that blockade of high percentage of the population of voltage-dependent sodium channels by CBZ and PHT might be important in inducing paradoxical intoxication/reaction, and that inhibition of carbonic anhydrase inhibits this effect. TPM and ZNS are candidate first-choice agents in treatment of epilepsy when first-line AEDs are ineffective.

Factors regulating the differentiated phenotype of principal cells (PC) and A- and B-intercalated cells (IC) in kidney collecting ducts are poorly understood. However, we have shown previously that carbonic anhydrase II (CAII)-deficient mice have no IC in their medullary collecting ducts, suggesting a potential role for this enzyme in determining the cellular composition of this tubule segment. We now report that the cellular profile of the collecting ducts of adult rats can be remodeled by inhibiting CA activity in rats by using osmotic pumps containing acetazolamide. The 31-kDa subunit of the vacuolar H(+)-ATPase, the sodium/hydrogen exchanger regulatory factor NHE-RF, and the anion exchanger AE1 were used to identify IC subtypes by immunofluorescence staining, while aquaporin 2 and aquaporin 4 were used to identify PC. In the cortical collecting ducts of animals treated with acetazolamide for 2 wk, the percentage of B-IC decreased significantly (18 +/- 2 vs. 36 +/- 4%, P < 0.01) whereas the percentage of A-IC increased (82 +/- 2 vs. 64 +/- Purchase Diflucan 4%, P < 0.01) with no change in the percentage of total IC in the epithelium. In some treated rats, B-IC were virtually undetectable. In the inner stripe of the outer medulla, the percentage of IC increased in treated animals (48 +/- 2 vs. 37 +/- 3%, P < 0.05) and the percentage of PC decreased (52 +/- 2 vs. 63 +/- 3%, P < 0.05). Moreover, IC appeared bulkier, protruded into the lumen, and showed a significant increase in the length of their apical (20.8 +/- 0.5 vs. 14.6 +/- 0.4 microm, P < 0.05) and basolateral membranes (25.8 +/- 0.4 vs. 23.8 +/- 0.5 microm, P < 0.05) compared with control rats. In the inner medullary collecting ducts of treated animals, the number of IC in the proximal third of the papilla was reduced compared with controls (11 +/- 4 vs. 40 +/- 11 IC/mm(2), P < 0.05). These data suggest that CA activity plays an important role in determining the differentiated phenotype of medullary collecting duct epithelial cells and that the cellular profile of collecting ducts can be remodeled even in adult rats. The relative depletion of cortical B-IC and the relative increase in number and hyperplasia of A-IC in the medulla may be adaptive processes that would tend to correct or stabilize the metabolic acidosis that would otherwise ensue following systemic carbonic anhydrase inhibition.

A serosa-mucosa movement of bicarbonate against concentration gradient was detected at Duphaston Capsule this intestinal level. This movement is partially dependent on oxidative phosphorylation since it is abolished by DNP administration, but as it is not affected by acetazolamide administration it can be supposed as dependent on carbonic anhydrase activity.

Treatments used for several neurological conditions may adversely affect the eye. Vigabatrin-related retinal toxicity leads to a visual field defect. Optic neuropathy may result from ethambutol and isoniazid, and from radiation therapy. Posterior subcapsular cataract is associated with systemic corticosteroids. Transient refractive error changes may follow Clomid Infertility Drugs treatment with acetazolamide or topiramate, and corneal deposits and keratitis with amandatine. Intraocular pressure can be elevated in susceptible individuals by anticholinergic drugs, including oxybutynin, tolterodine, benzhexol, propantheline, atropine and amitriptyline, and also by systemic corticosteroids and by topiramate. Nystagmus, diplopia and extraocular muscle palsies can occur with antiepileptic drugs, particularly phenytoin and carbamazepine. Ocular neuromyotonia can follow parasellar radiation. Congenital ocular malformations can result from in utero exposure to maternally prescribed sodium valproate, phenytoin and carbamazepine. Neurologists must be aware of potential ocular toxicity of these drugs, and appropriately monitor for potential adverse events.

In order to establish whether or not chloride ions behave as freely moving particles in "passive", i.e. ouabain- and acetazolamide-treated, frog skin, tracer fluxes of 36Cl-have been measured while a voltage (generally +40 mV, serosal side positive) across the skin was applied. Ussing's flux ratio equation has been used as a criterion for this type of transport. One group of skin samples exhibited significant exchange diffusion phenomena. Most samples in a second group either behaved according to the flux ratio equation of showed significant and extreme exchange diffusion. From flux ratios obtained at two different voltages across various skin samples, showing extreme exchange diffusion, it appeared that the simple form of Kedem and Essig's law derived from irreversible thermodynamics, which is valid for homogeneous systems, does not apply to the type of exchange diffusion found. The system can, however, be described by a 1:1 exchange mechanism working in parallel with a diffusional pathway. The ratio exchange flux/observed efflux must then have a constant value (0.83) at the voltages appled, which implies that the exchange flux is voltage dependent. By comparison with iodide flux experiments as carried out by Ussing, it is shown that iodide exhibits the same type Lipitor Cost of exchange diffusion. A carrier, possibly responsible for the observed behaviour, is described.

A non-filtering isolated perfused rat kidney model was developed to determine renal oxygen consumption in the absence of tubular reabsorption. The oxygen consumption in the absence of filtration was 3.1 +/- 0.8 micron of O2/min/g. This "basal" value was substantially higher than that of 2.0 micron of O2/min/g calculated by extrapolation of a plot of sodium reabsorption vs. oxygen consumption in filtering kidneys. It was also found that ouabain 10(-4) M decreased oxygen consumption in non-filtering kidneys and acetazolamide increased it in a dose dependent fashion. Furosemide did not change "basal" oxygen consumption. In filtering kidneys, the ratio of sodium reabsorbed to oxygen consumed averaged 36.8 muEq of Na/mumole of O2. It is concluded that basal oxygen consumption is not a fixed quantity and can be changed by experimental manipulations thereby changing the relation between transport activity and oxygen consumption.

Previous studies have indicated that the thiazide diuretics exert effects on proximal electrolyte transport. To determine whether the locus of these effects is at the brush border membrane (BBM) and if renal metabolism is affected, adult female Sprague-Dawley rats were acutely treated with either 1 mg/kg metolazone, 20 mg/kg chlorothiazide followed by a 20 mg/kg/hr maintenance infusion, 10 mg/kg acetazolamide followed by a 10 mg/kg/hr maintenance infusion, or the vehicles only. Administration of these agents resulted in an approximately tenfold increase in sodium excretion. Neither urinary phosphate nor inulin excretion changed significantly in any group. Sodium dependent BBM vesicle phosphate transport was examined at 0.15, 0.5, and 1 and 120 minute incubation periods in the diuretic treated groups and their respective control groups. Decreased uptake was seen in all pre-equilibrium time points in rats treated with metolazone: 0.15 minutes: 221 +/- 24 pmoles/mg protein (pmol/mg prot) in control rats versus (vs) 185 +/- 23 pmoles/mg prot in metolazone-treated animals (P less than .05) ; 0.5 minutes: 463 +/- 54 vs 369 +/- 49 pmol/mg prot (P less than .005); 1 minute: 549 +/- 74 vs 460 +/- 61 pmol/mg prot (P less than .05); no significant difference in phosphate transport was noted at the two hour equilibrium time point. No significant differences in sodium dependent phosphate transport existed between chlorothiazide or acetazolamide treated rats and control animals. Substrate-stimulated renal gluconeogenesis did not differ between metolazone treated and control animals. We therefore conclude that metolazone inhibits phosphate transport through an effect on the BBM and does not affect renal gluconeogenesis in the rat.

Carbonic anhydrase (CA) was purified from four different cell localisation (outer peripheral, cytosolic, inner peripheral and integral) in bovine stomach using affinity chromatography with Sepharose-4B-L-tyrosine sulphanilamide. During the purification steps, the activity of the enzyme was measured using p-nitrophenyl acetate at pH 7.4. Optimum pH and optimum temperature values for all CA samples were determined, and their K(m) and V(max) values for the same substrate by Lineweaver-Burk graphics. The extent of purification for all CA localizations was controlled by SDS-PAGE. The K(m) values at optimum pH and 20 degrees C were 0.625 mM, 0.541 mM, 0.785 mM and 0.862 mM with p-nitro phenyl acetate, for all CA localizations. The respective V(max) values at optimum pH and 20 degrees C were 0.875 micromol/L min, 0.186 micromol/L min, 0.214 micromol/L min and 0.253 micromol/L min with the same substrate. The K(i) and I50 values for the inhibitors sulphanilamide, KSCN, NaN3 and acetazolamide were determined for all the CA localizations.

Four trials were included in the review. Of these, two were randomised parallel studies, one was a crossover study and the other had a sequential design. A total of 84 patients were involved. Study quality was mixed and the studies were short (typically two weeks). All studies showed a similar direction and size of effect. In the randomised parallel studies, acetazolamide caused a metabolic acidosis and produced a non-significant fall in PCO2 (WMD -0.41 kPa; 95% CI -0.91, 0.09; N=2) and a significant rise in PO2 (WMD 1.54 kPa; 95% CI 0.97, 2.11; N=2). One study reported an improvement in sleep but there were no data concerning outcomes such as health status, symptoms, exacerbation rate, hospital admissions or deaths. Side effects were reported infrequently.

The effects of the carbonic anhydrase inhibitor acetazolamide on basal and parathyroid hormone (PTH)-induced bone metabolism were studied to evaluate the manner in which acetazolamide inhibits bone resorption. Half-calvaria from 5 to 6-day-old mice were cultured using the following treatments: control; acetazolamide (10, 33, or 100 microM); PTH (16.7 nM bovine PTH 1-34); acetazolamide + PTH. The effects of acetazolamide on PTH-induced cAMP accumulation and protein synthesis were determined. Media from bones cultured for 48 hours were analyzed for calcium to assess bone resorption, glucose to assess calvarial glucose utilization, and lactic acid to assess calvarial lactic acid release. Media were also assayed for beta-glucuronidase activity as an indicator of lysosomal enzyme release and for lactate dehydrogenase activity as an indicator of cytosolic enzyme release and cytotoxicity. Acetazolamide at 100 microM completely inhibited PTH-induced bone resorption. This inhibition did not appear to be due to cell death, as acetazolamide did not increase lactate dehydrogenase release. Acetazolamide had no effect on PTH-enhanced cAMP levels, indicating that receptor binding and adenylate cyclase activation were unaffected. Acetazolamide alone did not alter calvarial protein synthesis, but did significantly inhibit protein synthesis in the presence of PTH. PTH significantly enhanced calvarial glucose utilization, lactic acid release, and beta-glucuronidase release. Acetazolamide inhibited all of these PTH-induced parameters in a manner that roughly paralleled its inhibition of bone resorption; acetazolamide alone had no effect on the basal values. Our results indicate that acetazolamide inhibition of bone resorption in vitro may involve general alterations in hormonally stimulated bone cell metabolism secondary to carbonic anhydrase inhibition.

Changes in acid-base equilibrium and blood lactate and pyruvate concentrations were studied during recovery (breathing room air) after three days hypercapnia (FICO2 = 0.10) in awake dogs. Fast return to FICO2 = 0 produced a slight alkalosis in arterial blood and an increase in lactate and pyruvate concentrations which seemed to be maximum at the 15th minute. These changes were inhibited by previous injection of acetazolamide (50 mg/kg body weight). During progressive return to FICO2 = 0, over 1 hour, the peak value of blood lactate and pyruvate was delayed until the end of that hour, at the same time as a slight blood alkalosis appeared. These phenomen are most probably explained by a stimulation, due to alkalosis, of glycolysis at the level of phosphofructokinase.

Urinary calcium, magnesium and citrate levels are important in promoting or inhibiting renal stone formation. Here we review current information on the tubular handling of these ions. Most filtered calcium is reabsorbed in the proximal tubule and the thick ascending limb (TAL) of the loop of Henle, largely paracellularly; most of the remainder is reabsorbed in the distal tubule, transcellularly. Calcium reabsorption in the TAL and distal tubule is stimulated by parathyroid hormone and vitamin D; other factors influencing its renal handling include extracellular volume status and acid-base balance. Little filtered magnesium is reabsorbed in the proximal tubule; the bulk is reabsorbed paracellularly in the TAL, while most of the remainder is reabsorbed transcellularly in the distal tubule. Dietary intake, peptide hormones and chronic potassium depletion can all influence magnesium reabsorption in the TAL and distal tubule. Most filtered citrate is taken up across the apical membrane of the proximal tubule via a sodium-dicarboxylate co-transporter (NaDC-1). It also enters proximal tubular cells across the basolateral membrane; citrate contributes to the cells' oxidative metabolism. Citrate excretion is affected by acid-base balance, acetazolamide treatment, chronic potassium depletion and urinary excretion of calcium and magnesium. Where possible, we have indicated the mechanisms of these complex interactions.

11 studies (with 12 interventions arms) were included in the review. Acetazolamide at doses of 250 mg, 500 mg, and 750 mg were all effective in preventing acute mountain sickness above 3000 m, with a combined odds ratio of 0.36 (95% confidence interval 0.28 to 0.46). At a dose of 250 mg daily the number needed to treat for acetazolamide to prevent acute mountain sickness was 6 (95% confidence interval 5 to 11). Heterogeneity ranged from I(2)=0% (500 mg subgroup) to I(2)=44% (750 mg subgroup).

Summary The case is described of a 12-year-old girl presenting with raised intracranial pressure without ventricular dilatation and a type 1 Chiari malformation. This was taken to be a coincidental association of pseudotumour cerebri and the Chiari malformation. Treatment of the pseudotumour with Diamox gave rapid and sustained relief of the intracranial hypertension without change in the Chiari malformation. In addition, a series of 156 cases of pseudotumour cerebri was reviewed for evidence of the Chiari malf ormation. An overall incidence of 1.3%, rising to 2.7% in patients with MR scanning [excluding the case described] was found.

A low-speed pellet enriched with plasma membrane material accounted for 22.3 +/- 6.1% (n = 18) of the total CA activity in the cultured NPE. When intact cells were exposed to trypsin-EDTA, a 28% reduction of membrane-associated CA activity was observed; DBI inhibited this CA activity loss. Cytosolic CA activity was inhibited by 0.2% sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS). In contrast, membrane-associated CA was SDS resistant, a characteristic of the CA-IV isozyme. By Western blot, CA-IV immunoreactive polypeptide was detected in the cultured cells and also in native rabbit and porcine ciliary epithelium. Inhibition of total CA activity with acetazolamide and inhibition of extracellular-facing membrane-associated CA with DBI caused an identical intracellular pH decrease in intact NPE cells.

T1-hypointensity volume and DTI MD measures decreased in the brains of iNPH patients following oral ACZ and ELD. The magnitude of the decrease was greater in treatment responders than non-responders. Despite having different mechanisms of action, both ELD and ACZ may decrease interstitial brain water and increase cerebral blood flow in patients with iNPH. Quantitative MRI measurements appear useful for objectively monitoring response to acetazolamide, ELD and potentially other therapeutic interventions in patients with iNPH.

(1) In 9 patients, the CBF value in the post-HV scan was lower than that in the HV scan in 1 or more regions in the area of the obstructed arteries, although the PaCO2 level during the post-HV scan was higher than that during the HV scan in all patients. All control regions in the patients and in the normal volunteers showed an elevated CBF in the post-HV scan compared with the HV scan. (2) The negative post-HV response (posthyperventilatory steal) was prominent in 4 patients with moyamoya vessels and in another 5 patients with atherosclerotic disease who had PET evidence of hemodynamic stress (elevated CBV or OEF). (3) The regional pre- to post-HV change in CBF was significantly correlated with the CBF responses to acetazolamide and CO2.
