Development of quantitative methods of measuring antifungal drug effects in the rabbit cornea.
  1. E O Oji

    Abstract

    By means of multiple inoculation in each cornea with microtrephination a highly reproducible quantitative model of fungal infection of the rabbit corneal stroma has been produced. A known suspension of the chosen pathogen was systematically implanted into the trephine sites in the cornea. The degree of infectivity was monitored in both the preinoculation treated corneae (prophylaxis) and the postinoculation treated corneae (therapy). Examples measuring and comparing the antifungal effect of various imidazole drugs against Candida albicans are discussed.
