Circadian intraocular pressure variation with beta-blockers

, : Circadian intraocular pressure variation with beta-blockers. Acta Ophthalmologica Scandinavica 77(5): 500-503, Oct

Purpose: To investigate circadian intraocular pressure variation in patients treated with topical beta-blockers as monotherapy. Method: Circadian IOP curves were measured on 25 patients (47 eyes) treated with topical beta-blockers. IOP was recorded 4 times during the day and twice at night. All IOP measurements were taken using a non-contact tonometer. Results: IOP at night was significantly higher than IOP during the day. Thirty-four percent exhibited an increase in IOP of more than 5 mmHg at night, and 15% exhibited an increase of 10-18 mmHg at night. The median range of circadian IOP variation was 7 mmHg. Determined separately by day, the range of IOP variation was 4 mmHg. Conclusion: Patients treated with beta-blockers as monotherapy may experience greater variations in IOP than can be detected by conventional daytime IOP measurements.

In pot experiments, low concentrations of TMTD [thiram] (10 p.p.m.) increased T. alexandrinum nodulation, growth and N uptake in the presence of Rhizobium trifolii and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (which degrades TMTD). Nodulation and growth in uninocul...
