Corneal penetration and metabolism of the antiherpetic 5-iodo-2'-deoxycytidine.


PMID 4017645

Abstract

The study of the permeability of the cornea to 5-iodo-2'-deoxycytidine (IDC), an antiherpetic agent was performed in the rabbit. In a first experiment, using 125I-IDC eye-drops and a sustained contact between the drug and the cornea, we showed that the penetration of IDC in the aqueous humor was important. In a second experiment, using a HPLC method, we studied comparative ocular penetration and metabolism of IDC and 5-iodo-2'-deoxyuridine (IDU).
