Dược Động Học :
▧ Absorption :
Difluprednate penetrates the corneal epithelium rapidly and effectively. Low systemic absorption.
▧ Metabolism :
Difluprednate is rapidly deacetylated in the aqueous humor to difluoroprednisolone butyrate (DFB), the drug’s active metabolite. Endogenous tissue esterases then metabolize DFB to the inert metabolite hydroxyfluoroprednisolone butyrate (HFB), which limits systemic exposure to the active compound.
▧ Route of Elimination :
78.5% of radioactivity was excreted aftert 24 hours, and 99.5% by 7 days after a single dose of labeled difluprednate instilled in the right eyes of pigmented rabbits.
