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.

Because the secretion of endolymph has been localized in the ampullar part of the frog semicircular canal, we attempted to determine by cytochemical methods the ultrastructural localization of two enzymes that are assumed to play a role in endolymph secretion: carbonic anhydrase and adenylate cyclase. Functionally, the epithelium of the frog semicircular canal can be schematically divided into three areas: sensory (crista ampullaris), secretory (dark cells), and non-sensory and nonsecretory (transitional and undifferentiated cells) areas. Carbonic anhydrase activity was widely distributed in dark cells. Dark cell labeling disappeared in the presence of acetazolamide. The other cells of the canal did not show any carbonic anhydrase labeling except for the supporting cells of the sensory cells. Adenylate cyclase activity was found on the basolateral and apical membranes of dark cells, and on the apical membrane of sensory cells; weak labeling was also observed in the other epithelial cells. In the apical membrane of the dark cells, adenylate cyclase labeling was dependent on the presence of vasotocin, the frog antidiuretic hormone. The dark cells of the frog semicircular canal thus possess the enzyme equipment needed for the secretion of endolymph and its possible hormonal regulation.

To evaluate MRI methods for estimating cerebrovascular reserve, we computed changes in the R2* and R2 transverse relaxation rate and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) at 2.0 Tesla in five rats after administration of 30 mg of acetazolamide and in four rats during inhalation of 20% carbon dioxide gas. Significant decreases in R2*, corresponding to increases in gradient echo MRI signals, occurred in both the acetazolamide (average change -8.3%, P = 0.005) and the carbon dioxide (-2.7%, P = 0.009) treated animals. The computed values for R2 and ADC were unchanged. The magnitude of the gradient echo MRI changes observed should permit anatomic mapping of blood flow reactivity patterns in normal human subjects and in patients at risk for cerebrovascular disease.

In human medicine, the carbonic anhydrase (CA) inhibitor acetazolamide is used to treat irregular breathing disorders. Previously, we demonstrated in the rabbit that this substance stabilized closed-loop gain properties of the respiratory control system, but concomitantly weakened respiratory muscles. Among others, the highly diffusible CA-inhibitor methazolamide differs from acetazolamide in that it fails to activate Ca(2+)-dependent potassium channels in skeletal muscles. Therefore, we aimed to find out, whether or not methazolamide may exert attenuating adverse effects on respiratory muscle performance as acetazolamide. In anesthetized spontaneously breathing rabbits (n = 7), we measured simultaneously the CO(2) responses of tidal phrenic nerve activity, tidal transpulmonary pressure changes, and tidal volume before and after intravenous application of methazolamide at two mean (+/- SE) cumulative doses of 3.5 +/- 0.1 and 20.8 +/- 0.4 mg/kg. Similar to acetazolamide, low- and high-dose methazolamide enhanced baseline ventilation by 52 +/- 10% and 166 +/- 30%, respectively (P < 0.01) and lowered the base excess in a dose-dependent manner by up to 8.3 +/- 0.9 mmol/l (P < 0.001). The transmission of a CO(2)-induced rise in phrenic nerve activity into volume and/or pressure and, hence, respiratory work performance was 0.27 +/- 0.05 ml x kg(-1) x kPa x unit(-1) under control conditions, but remained unchanged upon low- or high-dose methazolamide, at 0.30 +/- 0.06 and 0.28 +/- 0.07 ml x kg(-1) x kPa x unit(-1), respectively. We conclude that methazolamide does not cause respiratory muscle weakening at elevated levels of ventilatory drive. This substance (so far not used for medication of respiratory diseases) may thus exert stabilizing influences on breathing control without adverse effects on respiratory muscle function.

A 53-year-old man presented in 1985 with bilateral middle ear infections requiring myringotomies. During the next 18 months, he went on to develop a left Bell's palsy. The patient then began to develop recurrent occipital headaches along with left sixth and seventh nerve palsies and a green nasal discharge requiring hospitalization. Workup included magnetic resonance imaging showing pronounced enhancement of the tentorium and meninges in the occipital region with normal ventricle size. An x-ray of the chest showed multiple pulmonary nodules. A regimen of prednisone and cyclophosphamide was initiated. The patient did well for 2 years until he again developed middle ear infections and headache. Serial lumbar punctures showed increased pressures. A circulating antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody was positive. Cyclophosphamide was administered, with acetazolamide added for treatment of the elevated intracranial pressure. The patient stabilized for another 2 years but then presented in 1994 with recurrent headache, bilateral papilledema, and mild left arm and right leg weakness. A lumbar puncture was performed with an opening pressure of 52 cm H2O. Computed tomography of the head revealed moderate enlargement of the lateral third and fourth ventricles, consistent with communicating hydrocephalus.

Sudden infant death syndrome is the leading cause of death in infants in the United States. The laryngeal chemoreflex (LCR) is thought to contribute to its pathogenesis. In adult animals, increasing levels of intralaryngeal CO2 result in a decrease in ventilatory activity. Intravenous acetazolamide (AZ) abolishes this response. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of intralaryngeal CO2 and AZ on the LCR and respiratory physiology of piglets under normoxic and hypoxic conditions. We applied 0% or 10% CO2 in a randomized order to the larynx of 26 piglets. Intubation via tracheotomy prevented inhalation of the gas mixtures. Laryngeal stimulation was performed under normoxic conditions (PaO2 of >70 mm Hg) in 15 animals and under hypoxic conditions (PaO2 of 50 to 65 mm Hg) in 11 animals both with and without intravenous AZ (5 mg/kg). Respiratory and cardiovascular response data were recorded. Ten percent intralaryngeal CO2 has no significant effect on mean baseline respiratory rate, systemic PaCO2 or PaO2 levels, or apnea duration (p > .05). The use of AZ (versus no AZ) resulted in significantly higher baseline respiratory rates (64 versus 51 breaths per minute; p = .016), a decreased baseline systemic PaCO2 level (38.8 versus 45.9 mm Hg; p < .001), a higher baseline PaO2 level (97.9 versus 82.8 mm Hg; p < .001), shorter mean apnea durations (15.5 versus 24.8 seconds; p = .001), a higher lowest O2 saturation level after the stimulus (78.0% versus 68.4%; p = .003), and fewer profound apneas (10 of 90 versus 41 of 90 trials; p < .001). We conclude that 10% intralaryngeal CO2 does not decrease ventilatory activity in piglets and has no significant effect on the LCR. Acetazolamide, however, appears to have a protective effect against the LCR, resulting in shorter and less severe apneas. The protective effect of AZ against the LCR appears to be related to its ability to stimulate the respiratory drive and increase oxygenation at baseline.

Patients with steno-occlusion in the internal carotid artery or middle cerebral artery (MCA) at our institution between 2007 and 2013 were retrospectively studied. Intracranial flows were obtained using QMRA, and flow change with Diamox (QMRAΔd) was calculated as follows: ([flow after Diamox-flow before Diamox]/[flow before Diamox])×100%. Poor LMC was defined as grade 1 or 2, and robust LMC was defined as grade 3 or 4 based on the ASITN/SIR (American Society of Interventional and Therapeutic Neuroradiology/Society of Interventional Radiology) grading system on digital subtraction angiography.

Trichinellosis is a globally distributed helminthic infection. There is a considerable interest in developing new anti-helminthic drugs affecting all the developmental stages of Trichinella. Acetazolamide (carbonic anhydrase (CA) inhibitor) involves a novel mechanism of action by inhibiting such an essential enzyme for parasite metabolism. This work aimed to study the effect of acetazolamide against different stages of T. spiralis in experimental animals. Mice were divided into three groups: group I: infected and treated with acetazolamide on day 2 post infection (P.I.), group II: infected and treated with acetazolamide on day 12 P.I., and group III: infected non-treated. From each group, small intestine and muscles were removed for histopathological and immunohistochemical studies. Also, total adult and muscle larval count were estimated. We found that acetazolamide was effective in reduction of both adult and muscle larval counts. When given early, the effect was more pronounced on the adults (62.7 %). However, the efficacy of the drug against muscle larvae was increased when given late (63 %). Improvement of the intestinal histopathological changes was observed in all the treated groups. Degeneration of encysted larvae with minimal pathologic changes of infected skeletal muscle was observed in the treated groups. Expression of matrix metalloproteinase-9 showed a statistically significant decrease in the intestinal and muscle tissues in all treated groups as compared to the control group. In conclusion, the present study revealed that acetazolamide, carbonic anhydrase inhibitor, could be a promising drug against both adults and larvae of T. spiralis.

A stopped-flow pH electrode apparatus was used to investigate the mechanisms underlying slow changes in plasma pH (pHO) after blood leaves the pulmonary capillaries in carbonic anhydrase-inhibited animals. After acetazolamide was administered to an anesthetized dog or cat, arterial blood was withdrawn through the electrode apparatus into a syringe. Syringe movement was then suddenly stopped. Temperature and pHO of the blood in the electrode chamber were monitored both before and after blood withdrawal ceased. After stopping flow, pHO of the blood in the electrode chamber a) rose 0.02 after a dose of about 1 mg/kg acetazolamide; b) did not change after a dose of about 2 mg/kg acetazolamide; and c) fell 0.10 after a dose greater than about 5 mg/kg acetazolamide. With reasonable red cell and plasma carbonic anhydrase activities assumed for each dose level of acetazolamide, a computer model of the reaction and transport processes occurring in blood after gas exchange in the lung yielded predicted time courses of pHo that were in good agreement with the experimental results. The observed slow pHo changes are largely a result of disequilibrium of [H+] between red blood cells and plasma as blood leaves the pulmonary capillaries.

1. The intracellular (I.C.) concentrations of Na, K and Cl in mammary cells from lactating guinea-pigs have been calculated from the analysis of fresh tissue and the measurement of the extracellular (E.C.) space with [(14)C]sucrose and the milk content with [(14)C]lactose.2. Assuming that alveolar milk has the same concentration as teat milk, the intracellular concentrations were calculated to be K 115, Na 42 and Cl 66 m-equiv. l(-1) intracellular water.3. Intracellular concentrations were also calculated in slices incubated in Krebs-bicarbonate medium plus glucose. There was a large increase in the sucrose (E.C.) space and a rise in total tissue [Na] and [Cl]. On the assumption that the medium had equilibrated with the milk space as well as the E.C. space, the calculated I.C. concentrations of Na (43 m-equiv. l(-1)), and Cl (62) were very similar while [K] was somewhat higher (143 m-equiv. l(-1)I.C. water).4. The calculated I.C. concentrations of all three ions are all higher than in milk but the ratios between them are almost identical.5. Similar figures for the I.C. concentrations of Na, K and Cl have been obtained in the goat, cow and sheep mammary tissue incubated in vitro.6. Moderate changes in the concentrations of Na, K and Cl in the external medium had no effect on cell composition but during incubation without ions [(14)C]sucrose became distributed throughout the total tissue water indicating that sucrose had entered the I.C. compartment.7. Acetazolamide (10(-2)M), aldosterone (1.4 x 10(-6)M) and, in some experiments, lack of glucose lowered I.C. [Cl(-)], but oxytocin, vasopressin and low doses of insulin had no effect.8. The data are difficult to reconcile with the hypothesis of Zaks, Natochin, Sokolova, Tanasiichuk & Tverskoi (1965) that freshly secreted milk has the ionic composition of plasma.9. Comparison of I.C. ion concentrations and the membrane potential between the cells and milk suggests that Na(+) and K(+) are passively distributed across the apical membrane but that Cl(-) must be actively held in the cells. Across the basal membrane the data are consistent with the presence of a Na(+) pump and with Kinura's (1969) detection of a Na:K ATPase on the basal and lateral membranes. In addition another inward-facing Cl(-) pump may exist at this site.

Many investigations have indicated a functional role for carbonic anhydrase in the mediation of hormone-stimulated bone resorption. These studies depend heavily on the use of heterocyclic sulfonamide inhibitors of carbonic anhydrase. These drugs have effects on many tissues other than bone, and some of these effects confound the interpretation of studies of the role of carbonic acid in bone metabolism. A novel, "bone-targeted" sulfonamide has been produced to obviate these extraosseous effects. This compound (designated WP-1) is the combination of tetracycline and acetazolamide, such that the acetazolamide is not an active inhibitor. Hydrolysis of WP-1 yields an active carbonic anhydrase inhibitor. WP-1 has a marked affinity for bone mineral, allowing deposition of the drug in bone. At a concentration of 10(-5) M, WP-1 attenuates parathyroid hormone stimulated net release of calcium from neonatal rat calvaria in culture. WP-1 is the first member of a class of drugs which may prove useful as pharmacological probes in the study of bone metabolism.

Chemical sympathectomy with 6-hydroxydopamine combined with subsequent topical epinephrine therapy was evaluated with regard to intraocular pressure effects in primary open-angle glaucoma. After chemical sympathectomy intraocular pressure was maintained below 20 mm Hg with 1.0% epinephrine three times daily in 29 of 36 eyes of 25 patients for two to 29 weeks. Chemical sympathectomy combined with epinephrine therapy was most effective in patients whose intraocular pressure had been well controlled with pilocarpine and epinephrine and was less effective in patients whose intraocular pressure had not been controllable with maximum medical therapy prior to the administration of 6-hydroxydopamine. The results of this study suggest that chemical sympathectomy combined with topical epinephrine therapy has considerable clinical value in the medical management of primary open-angle glaucoma.

The electrical potential difference (PD) in the rat proximal convoluted tubule was investigated in vivo as a function of distance from the glomerulus. The PD was found to be invariably negative (up to -4.5 mV) in the earliest segments (less than 0.5 mm from the glomerulus) and rose to positive values (+2 to +4) in the later segments (1 mm beyond the glomerulus). This change in PD correlated with the bubule fluid-to-plasma (TF/P) chloride ratios, which rose from unity in the early segments to approximately 1.3 in the late. Corresponding changes in PD and chloride ratios could be elicited by single-nephron stop-flow techniques in the early segments. Luminal perfusion techniques demonstrated a direct relationship between PD and tubule fluid chloride concentration. Acetazolamide was found to significantly reduce both late proximal PD (less than +2 mV) and TF/P chloride ratios (less than 1.06). Split-drop studies demonstrated that the negative PD in the early proximal tubule was dependent on the presence of glucose and alanine and the absence of a chloride gradient, buy diamox whereas in the late proximal tubule under the same conditions the PD was not significantly different from zero. In this segment of the nephron the positive PD in free flow appeared to result from the chloride diffusion potential generated by preferential HCO3 reabsorption. These results provide further demonstration of intrinsic differences in the transport properties along the length of the proximal convoluted tubule.

A 14-year-old girl had a 3-month history of headache and blurred vision. Funduscopy showed bilateral optic disc edema. Findings on brain imaging buy diamox were normal, and a diagnosis of idiopathic intracranial hypertension was confirmed after lumbar puncture showed an elevated opening pressure of 32 cm H(2)O. Optic nerve head drusen were noted on computed tomography scan and confirmed with B-scan ultrasound. After 2 years, resolution of symptoms coincided with variable compliance to treatment with acetazolamide and concomitant papilledema. In general, optic disc edema poses a clinical conundrum due to the more common occurrence of optic nerve head drusen, potentially resulting in delayed diagnosis and treatment of idiopathic intracranial hypertension.

Recent studies of rabbit colon have indicated the presence of a vanadate-sensitive K+-dependent proton pump buy diamox , suggesting the existence of an H+-K+-ATPase. The participation of such a mechanism for colonic K+ absorption in the rat has not been determined. To this purpose, we attempted to detect the presence of pH-linked mechanisms for K+ absorption in rat distal colon using 86Rb as a marker for K+. We found that Rb+ absorption in Na-Ringer directly correlated with the in vitro partial pressure of CO2 (PCO2) in aldosterone-stimulated but not in control rats. Similar studies performed using Na-free Ringer demonstrated that PCO2 markedly augmented Rb+ absorption in both control and aldosterone-stimulated rat colon. Rb+ absorption was inhibited by orthovanadate, SCH28080, and mucosal ouabain in Na-free Ringer, but there was no effect of omeprazole, furosemide, or bumetanide. Barium applied to the serosa was also effective in inhibiting Rb+ absorption, suggesting that Rb+ exit from the cell was conductive. These findings are consistent with the presence of an active K+ pump that is activated by pretreatment with aldosterone and increased in vitro PCO2 and that is inhibited by orthovanadate, SCH28080, and mucosal ouabain. The constellation of findings suggests that participation of an ATPase that is not typical of either Na+-K+-ATPase or H+-K+-ATPase.

Acetazolamide is recommended for the prophylaxis of acute mountain sickness symptoms which sets in on climbing to high altitudes (H) above 2,500 m. It is primarily excreted unchanged in urine. In a previous study, we reported on the changes in urinary excretion of meperidine and its metabolite normeperidine on exposure to high altitude. In this study, we investigated the effect on urinary excretion of acetazolamide. The study was carried out in three groups of 12 healthy male volunteers each: at sea level (group L), these same volunteers the day after arrival at high altitude of 4,360 m (group HA), and subjects residing for approximately 10 months at high altitude (group HC). Urine was collected for the periods of 0-2, 2-4, 4-8, 8-12, 12-24 and 24-36 h after peroral administration of a single 250 mg dose. Urinary pH was measured and the concentrations of acetazolamide were determined. There were no significant changes observed in the amount of acetazolamide excreted in urine over 36 h. The urinary pH ranged from 4.5 to 7.8 for L, from 4.2 to 6.9 for HA and from 3.1 to 6.7 for HC. The Fel (fraction eliminated unchanged in urine) was calculated from the amount excreted in 36 h buy diamox in urine and dose, assuming a bioavailability of 1 based on literature data. No significant changes in Fel were seen.

In the second part (n = 6), the associated respiratory effects of the effective renal dose of acetazolamide 5 mg kg-1 were evaluated. We found a statistically significant 4% decrease in pulmonary carbon dioxide excretion in the 10-min sampling period immediately following the administration of acetazolamide, but thereafter carbon dioxide elimination proceeded at a normal rate. The observed carbon dioxide retention is clinically unimportant, and we recommend acetazolamide as an effective means of eliminating surplus water and bicarbonate in the critically ill.

In our study the patients who administered systemic acetazolamide had significant reduction of central corneal thickness. The folds of Descemet's membrane and endothelial dysfunction in AS OCT tomograms showed less structural changes in group I. Significant better postoperative visual acuity in these patients is probably because of the smaller buy diamox corneal edema after 24 h, which improves patients' comfort.

Orthostasis reduces mean flow velocity (FVmean) in cerebral arteries. This might be used as an alternative provocation test for cerebral hemodynamics in patients with carotid artery disease (CAD). In 21 unilateral CAD patients and 21 controls, FVmean in both middle cerebral arteries (MCA) was measured by transcranial Doppler, together with blood pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR) during a tilt table test. Cerebrovascular reserve (CVR) was measured by an acetazolamide test. In all cases, FVmean dropped to a lower level (controls: 81.9 +/- 9.4% of baseline; patients: 84.3 +/- 7.9% symptomatic side, 85.6 +/- 9.0% contralateral). Impaired CVR patients showed a smaller (p < 0.01) decrease (90.6 +/- 3.3%) compared to contralateral (84.9 +/- 6.0%), to normal CVR patients (81.1 +/- 7.8%) and to controls. Heart rate increased in both groups (controls: +16.6 +/- 9.9%, patients +10.3 +/- 9.9%; p < 0.01 buy diamox ); BP showed no change. Orthostasis induces a decrease of MCA FVmean as already previously described. This decrease is significantly smaller in patients with impaired CVR. Since BP does not change, some authors explain the lower MCA Fvmean during orthostasis as caused by sympathetic induced vasoconstriction of cerebral resistance vessels. The authors speculate that in impaired CVR-patients autoregulative protection against ischemia might limit vasoconstriction. In combination with standard tests for measurement of CVR, this test might be useful for evaluation of cerebral autoregulation.

Benzodiazepines for sedation may decrease the PaO2, the arterial O2 saturation (SaO2), and the CO2 response more in the elderly than in the young. The purpose of this study was to assess changes in blood gases due to i.v. midazolam or sublingual flunitrazepam given as premedication in elderly patients for unilateral cataract surgery. METHODS. Fifty patients over 65 years of age with treated arterial hypertension and other co-existing diseases (ASA III-IV) were randomly assigned to have: (1) i.v. midazolam titrated until they became drowsy (17 patients; 2.85 +/- 0.84 mg [mean +/- SD]); (2) sublingual flunitrazepam (16 patients; 0.005 mg/kg); or (3) no sedation (17 patients; controls). On entering the operating theatre, the radial artery was cannulated and the first blood gas analysis was obtained. The premedication was then given. At 5, 10, 20, and 30 min after premedication, before and 10 min after retrobulbar block, before operation, 5 and 15 min after the beginning of the operation, 10 and 20 min after administration of 500 mg acetazolamide i.v. during the operation, and 10 and 20 min after the operation additional arterial blood samples were analysed (a total of 15 measuring points). Pulse oximetry, invasive blood pressure, and ECG were continuously monitored. All patients received oxygen 3 l/min during the operation by nasal cannula. Differences between the three groups were analysed by Student's t-test or U-test and a P value < 0.05 was considered significant. RESULTS. The patient demography, including duration of anaesthesia and operation, was similar in the three groups (Table 1). No significant differences were seen in heart rate, mean arterial pressure, PaO2, pulse-oximetric oxygen saturation (SpO2), base excess, or serum bicarbonate levels. The PaCO2 increased in patients after midazolam (P < 0.01) and flunitrazepam (P < 0.05) until the beginning of the operation compared with the control group (Fig. 3); 20 min after the operation there was still a significant difference between the midazolam group and the Nizoral Pills Medication controls. SaO2 was significantly (P < 0.05) lower in the midazolam group 10 and 20 min after administration of premedication compared with the control group, but was within physiological limits (Fig. 5). Despite titration, 2 patients had severe respiratory insufficiency 3 min after midazolam: the SpO2 decreased below 85% and the paO2 below 55 mmHg. The paCO2 was higher (P < 0.05) in the midazolam group 10 min after acetazolamide compared with the controls. CONCLUSIONS. The results of the study show the potential hazards of i.v. midazolam in the elderly. If sedation is required for cataract surgery under local anaesthesia, we recommend sublingual flunitrazepam or the use of benzodiazepines with lower hypnogenic effects in the elderly. A thorough preoperative discussion of anaesthesia and the operation might be an adequate substitute for any premedication in high-risk patients; the best blood gas analysis results were obtained in the control group.

We analyzed V-type H(+)-ATPase (VA) and Na(+)/K(+)-ATPase (NKA) along the caeca and midgut of third instar Drosophila larvae using immunohistochemistry and ATPase activity assays. Corresponding H(+) and K(+) fluxes were characterized using the Scanning Ion-Selective Electrode Technique (SIET), and the roles of transport ATPases in energizing ion transport across the larval gut were investigated by basal application of bafilomycin, a VA inhibitor, and ouabain, a NKA inhibitor. Addition of bafilomycin led to a decrease in H(+) absorption along the caeca and midgut except at the copper cells and large flat cell zone of the middle midgut. H(+) absorption was decreased by acetazolamide, consistent with carbonic anhydrase activity in all regions except at the large flat cell zone of the middle midgut. Bafilomycin or acetazolamide also led to decreased K(+) absorption across the Amoxil Online Uk caeca and the anterior midgut. Our data show the dependence of K(+) transport on H(+) gradients established by the VA in the latter regions, consistent with the presence of a Cation-Proton Antiporter (CPA2) identified in other insect epithelia. Addition of ouabain led to the increase of K(+) absorption along the anterior midgut and the large flat cell zone of the middle midgut, suggesting a role for the NKA in these regions. This study shows the importance of both ATPases in driving ion transport across the gut of larval Drosophila.

Central sleep apnoea (CSA) in congestive heart failure is sleep state dependent and occurs typically in stages I and II of non-REM sleep. The pre-requisites are hypocapnia and some prolongation of the circulation time. It is not certain whether abnormalities in after-discharge activity in the brainstem are also important. The presence of CSA in patients with left ventricular dysfunction is a poor prognostic sign and associated with a higher mortality in that group compared to age, sex and ejection fraction matched patients with congestive cardiac failure alone. It is reasonable to speculate that the CSA causes an increase in sympathetic nervous system activity which would maintain afterload at a high level or tend to increase it with time. The application of a high afterload to an impaired left ventricle leads over time to a further reduction in ejection fraction. From other studies, particularly ACE inhibitor Celexa 100 Mg studies, it is known that ejection fraction and prognosis are almost linearly related. It could therefore be said that once CSA has developed it may lead to a vicious circle of increasing afterload and further reduction in ejection fraction, causing worsening CSA and further increases in afterload. A number of treatments have been shown to be of benefit: supplemental nocturnal oxygen therapy, acetazolamide and nasal CPAP therapy have all been shown to reduce CSA. In addition nasal continuous positive airways pressure (CPAP) has been shown by two groups in Canada to also improve ejection fraction. The beneficial effects on ejection fraction in particular, persist after the treatment has been withdrawn, which suggests either remodelling of the left ventricular musculature or a resetting of the baseline sympathetic nervous system activity. The impressive increase in ejection fraction due to three months nasal CPAP therapy in one study (an average 35% increase) is both dramatic and exciting for the future. It is reasonable to expect improvement in prognosis for patients with CCF whose ejection fraction rises with CPAP treatment. Finally, only a limited number of studies have been published. Unfortunately the impressive results from Canada have not yet been reproduced in other centres around the world.

Our recent studies have revealed that catecholamines depress the endolymphatic sac DC potential (ESP) by beta-adrenergic action Zofran 60 Mg , and that acetazolamide (ACTZ), a potent carbonic anhydrase inhibitor, decreases the ESP. The interaction of ACTZ and isoproterenol (Iso), a nonselective beta agonist, in their action on the ESP was examined in the guinea pig. Intravenous administration of Iso (6.25 micrograms/kg/min) and ACTZ (10 mg/kg) reduced the ESP amplitude by 38.5 +/- 5.9% (n = 8) and 39.8 +/- 3.7% (n = 8), respectively. Co-administration of both agents reduced the ESP amplitude by 62.3 +/- 3.3% (n = 8). The ESP change induced by co-administration was significantly larger than that by the administration of each agent alone. Co-treatment with Iso and ACTZ at doses producing near-maximum reduction of the ESP depressed almost all parts of oxygen-dependent components of the ESP. The results suggest that Iso and ACTZ decrease the ESP via mechanisms different from each other, and that oxygen-dependent components of the ESP are composed of Iso- and ACTZ-sensitive parts.

Of 131 women with hormonally related migraines unresponsive to standard medication, 67 (51.1%) noted profound relief after a 12-month, phased study using danazol for migraine prevention. The first three phases consisted of two-month cycles: dietary control and acetazolamide, the addition of danazol and danazol discontinuation. Eighty-three women (63.36%) reported control of their hormonal migraines while using danazol. In phase IV, 81 women whose headaches were controlled by danazol restarted danazol for an additional six months. Sixty-seven (82.7%) reported continued success with this medication. Danazol proved highly successful in the control of women's cyclic migraine. Its effectiveness remained consistent throughout the treatment course. In the prophylactic treatment of women's hormonal migraine, 400 mg of danazol administered daily for 25 days each month can prove effective when standard medical therapy fails. Furthermore, the response to danazol supported the concept that hormonal migraine should be treated as a distinct clinical entity.

The two β-carbonic anhydrases (CAs, EC 4.2.1.1) from the bacterial pathogen Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium, stCA 1 and stCA 2, were investigated for their inhibition with a large panel of sulfonamides and sulfamates. Unlike inorganic anions, which are weak, millimolar inhibitors of the two enzymes [Vullo et al., Bioorg. Med. Chem. Lett.2011, 21, 3591], sulfonamides and sulfamates are effective micro-to nanomolar inhibitors of the two enzymes. Various types of inhibitors have been detected among the 38 investigated sulfonamides/sulfamates, with K(I)s in the range of 31 nM-5.87 μM. The best stCA 1 inhibitors were acetazolamide and benzolamide-based compounds, whereas the best stCA 2 inhibitors were sulfonylated benzenesulfonamides and amino-benzolamide derivatives (K(I)s in the range of 31-90 nM). 3-Fluoro-5-chloro-4-aminobenzolamide showed an inhibition constant of 51 nM against stCA 1 and of 38 nM against stCA 2, being the best inhibitor detected so far for these enzymes. As many strains of S. enterica show extensive resistance to classical antibiotics, inhibition of the β-CAs investigated here may be useful for developing novel antibacterials, targeting β-CAs which may be involved in pathogenicity and invasion of some bacteria.

The hypothesis that parathyroid hormone and carbonic anhydrase inhibitors have a common mechanism or site of action on phosphate reabsorption by the renal tubule was tested by administration of parathyroid hormone in the absence and presence of acetazolamide in thyroparathyroidectomized dogs. Re-collection micropuncture and electron probe microanalysis methodologies were utilized. In the absence of acetazolamide, parathyroid hormone increased fractional delivery of phosphate (and volume) from the proximal tubule from 25 +/- 2 to 38 +/- 3%, P less than 0.025, and increased fractional phosphate excretion from 3.8 +/- 1.2 to 19.9 +/- 3.7%, P less than 0.005 (eight dogs). In the presence of acetazolamide, parathyroid hormone increased fractional delivery of phosphate (but not volume) from the proximal tubule from 50 +/- 4 to 58 +/- 5%, P less than 0.025, and increased fractional excretion of phosphate from 8.7 +/- 2.2 to 31.0 +/- 4.3%, P less than 0.001 (12 dogs). Thus, the effects of parathyroid hormone were additive to the effects of maximal inhibition of carbonic anhydrase indicating that parathyroid hormone and carbonic anhydrase inhibitors have different mechanisms of action on phosphate reabsorption by the renal tubule. In addition, phosphate reabsorption beyond the point of micropuncture in the late proximal tubule was much more markedly inhibited by parathyroid hormone than by acetazolamide.
