08/01/1987 - "For this reason use of hypromellose should be confined to situations where its use is likely to confer some special advantage, as in the presence of a bound-down pupil in patient's with chronic glaucoma or perhaps to facilitate "in the bag" implantation."
01/01/2015 - "In our work we (i) designed a rabbit model of chronic, moderately elevated IOP for studying glaucoma and (ii) demonstrated efficacy of mitochondria-targeted antioxidant SkQ1 as a tool to reverse several traits of experimental glaucoma induced by a series of injections of hydroxypropylmethylcellulose (HPMC) to the anterior chamber of the rabbit eye.

01/01/2015 - "We attempted to develop anti-glaucoma eye drops using 0.5% disulfiram (DSF), 5% 2-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin, 0.1% hydroxypropylmethylcellulose, and 2% methylcellulose (MC) (DSF eye drops with MC), and tested the ability of a DSF eye drops with MC to reduce intraocular pressure (IOP) in rabbit models. "
08/01/1992 - "The present experiments were designed to develop a rabbit model of chronic intraocular hypertension with characteristics similar to human chronic glaucoma by ligating vortex veins or by making single or multiple intraocular injections of 0.5% or 1% alpha-chymotrypsin, 20% chondroitin sulphate, 2% hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, 2% sodium carboxymethylcellulose or 1% or 2% methylcellulose.
