Olopatadine ophthalmic solution suppresses substance P release in the conjunctivitis models.

Tamura T - Asia Pac Allergy (2012)

Bottom Line: We investigated that the effect of olopatadine hydrochloride ophthalmic solutions (olopatadine 0.1% and olopatadine 0.2%) on rat conjunctivitis models compared with other anti-allergic ophthalmic solutions.The inhibitory effects by olopatadine were more potent than by other tested anti-allergic ophthalmic solutions.These results indicate that olopatadine ophthalmic solutions appear to exert additional SP release inhibition besides dual-action such as selective histamine H1 receptor antagonistic action and mast cell stabilization action.

ABSTRACT

Background: Olopatadine hydrochloride ophthalmic solutions are treated for allergic conjunctival diseases that are a selective histamine H1 receptor antagonist and an inhibitor of the release of mediators including histamine from the human mast cells. Substance P (SP) levels are increased in tears of patients with allergic conjunctivitis. However, little is known about the regulation of SP release by anti-allergic ophthalmic solutions.

Objective: We investigated that the effect of olopatadine hydrochloride ophthalmic solutions (olopatadine 0.1% and olopatadine 0.2%) on rat conjunctivitis models compared with other anti-allergic ophthalmic solutions.

Methods: Conjunctivitis was induced by subconjunctival injection of histamine or intravenous injection of ovalbumin in rats passively sensitized with anti-ovalbumin anti-serum. The releases of SP were determined in the conjunctiva and tears using rat antigen-induced conjunctivitis models.

Results: Olopatadine 0.1% and 0.2% significantly inhibited the increased conjunctival dye leaked in the histamine- or antigen-induced hyperpermeability. The inhibitory effects by olopatadine were more potent than by other tested anti-allergic ophthalmic solutions. Moreover, olopatadine significantly inhibited the release of SP from the conjunctiva.

Conclusion: These results indicate that olopatadine ophthalmic solutions appear to exert additional SP release inhibition besides dual-action such as selective histamine H1 receptor antagonistic action and mast cell stabilization action.

Effects of olopatadine ophthalmic solution 0.1% and 0.2% compared other anti-allergic ophthalmic solutions on histamine (A) or ovalbumin (B)-induced conjunctival vascular hyperpermeability in passively sensitized rats. Olopatadine 0.1%, olopatadine 0.2%, levocabastine 0.025%, and tranilast 0.5% were applied topically onto the eye 30 min before the challenge of antigen and histamine with Evans blue dye. Each column and vertical bar represents the mean ± SE of 8-11 rats. **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001: significantly different from the control group (Student's t-test). ###p < 0.001: significantly different from the control group (Aspin Welch test).

Mentions: The amount of dye leaked by the injection of histamine into the upper subconjunctiva was significantly increased compared to saline-injected animals (p < 0.0001) (Fig. 1A). Olopatadine 0.1% and olopatadine 0.2% significantly suppressed the increased conjunctival dye leaked (p < 0.0001, p < 0.0001). Levocabastine also significantly inhibited the increased conjunctival dye leaked by histamine (p = 0.0007). Tranilast did not significantly inhibit. These inhibitory effects of olopatadine were more potent than for other tested anti-allergic ophthalmic solutions.
