Pharmacological action of
GCS for topical use in ophthalmology.
When applied topically, hydrocortisone acetate suppresses the inflammatory and allergic reactions that occur in the outer shells and anterior segment of the eye.
The action of hydrocortisone acetate, like other corticosteroids, is based on the suppression of the function of leukocytes and tissue macrophages. It limits the migration of leukocytes, macrophages and mast cells into the area of ââinflammation and inhibits the formation of interleukin-1. Helps stabilize lysosomal membranes, thereby reducing the concentration of proteolytic enzymes in the area of ââinflammation. Reduces capillary permeability due to histamine release. Suppresses fibroblast activity and collagen formation. It inhibits the activity of phospholipase A2, which leads to the suppression of the synthesis of prostaglandins and leukotrienes.
Hydrocortisone acetate may penetrate through the cornea into the moisture of the anterior chamber due to lipophilic properties. The penetration of hydrocortisone acetate into the tissue depends on the condition of the cornea and increases significantly in case of inflammation or damage to the mucous membrane of the eye.
