Loteprednol Etabonate Mechanism of Action

The informative video covers the pharmacologic treatment options for conditions with ocular inflammation with focus on ocular corticosteroids. To be effective, ophthalmic corticosteroids must penetrate the cornea. Because Loteprednol Etabonate is a biphasic molecule and more lipophilic than dexamethasone it is able to fully penetrate the cornea. Once through the cornea, its hydrophilic properties allow it to diffuse uniformly in the eye.
