E. Sub-Tenon’s Capsule Administration The sub-Tenon’s space extends posteriorly from the subconjunctival region and will exhibit similar characteristics. Like studies on subconjunctival dosing, the administration of antibiotics by the sub-Tenon’s capsule approach has also been known for some time (Christy and Lall, 1986; Golden, 1971). However, the real potential for transscleral posterior delivery of drugs has come to light only recently. An advantage of this route is that the vitreous is not penetrated, so adverse effects such as retinal detachment and endophthalmitis are far less likely to occur when compared to an intravitreal injection.

1996). These studies further confirmed the ability of different implant designs to release drugs into the vitreous in a controlled fashion. In pars plana implanted systems, the design and rate must facilitate getting sufficient levels of drug to distal tissue. , 2006). 6 Designs of transscleral delivery systems. (a). Non-eroding reservoir system allowing for reinjection into the device (Weiner, 1995). (b). Noneroding metal coil with matrix coating controlling the drug release (Varner, 2004). (c).

Another method of prolonging vitreal levels of drugs is with engineered 25 III. DELIVERY SYSTEMS FOR OCULAR DISEASE insolubility. , 2006) have been investigating more insoluble longer acting crystalline derivatives of drugs to improve dissolution time in the vitreous. In particular, they have developed lipophilic prodrugs (hexadecyloxypropyl derivatives) of cidofovir for therapy of CMV or cyclic peptide derivatives such as A36 (Angstrom Pharma) being investigated as an antagonist of the ocular urokinase receptor involved in VEGF upregulation.
