fluorophotometry

fluorophotometry

 [floor″o-fo-tom´ĕ-tre]
vitreous fluorophotometry the measurement of light given off by intravenously injected fluorescein that has leaked through the retinal vessels into the vitreous; done to detect the breakdown of the blood-retinal barrier, an early ocular change in diabetes mellitus.

(flōr'ō-fō-tom'ĕ-trē),
Photomultiplier tube measurement of fluorescence emitted from the interior of the eye after intravenous administration of fluorescein; used to measure the rate of formation of aqueous humor or integrity of the retinal vasculature.

Many analytical methods, such as high performance liquid chromatography, capillary electrophoresis, fluorophotometry, and electrochemistry, have been developed for detection of GSH [5-8].

Vitreous Fluorophotometry. The permeability of the blood-retinal barrier (BRB) was evaluated using vitreous fluorophotometry, as previously described [21].
In this study, the intravitreal administration of spermidine induced hyperpermeability of the BRB in rats, as assessed by vitreous fluorophotometry. The BRB is comprised of inner and outer components, corresponding to intercellular tight junctions between retinal endothelial, and RPE cells, respectively [32], and the breakdown of either or both the inner and/or the outer BRB may contribute to the observed retinal hyperpermeability.
Fluorophotometry was used to evaluate the BAB in healthy cats; authors described that cats treated with oral meloxicam for 2 days before aqueocentesis-induced breakdown of the BAB, showed decreased anterior chamber fluorescein concentration and decreased intraocular inflammation was noticed only 48 hours after aqueocentesis (RANKIN et al., 2013).
