The global glaucoma therapeutics market segmentation is based on drug class (alpha agonist, beta blockers, carbonic anhydrase inhibitor, cholinergic, combined medication, prostaglandin analogs), end users (ambulatory surgical centers, hospitals, ophthalmic clinics).
In our study, topical carbonic anhydrase inhibitor dorzolamide was prescribed in (8.33%) patients, which was not the trend seen in other studies from India where dorzolamide was prescribed less frequently as monotherapy instead oral acetazolamide was prescribed; [10] the reasons for less number of prescriptions for dorzolamide monotherapy probably are because of higher frequency of instillation being necessary 3 times a day as compared to prostaglandin analogs and higher cost as compared to P-blockers.
Carbonic anhydrase II (CA II) is a modulator of platelet function.
In recent studies [8-12], the kinetic parameters and inhibition mechanisms of enzymes human carbonic anhydrases and catalase in the presence of some boron-containing anions were investigated, among them [K.sub.2][[B.sub.3][O.sub.3][F.sub.4]OH], too.

The metalloenzyme, carbonic anhydrase (CA), catalyzes the reversible hydration of carbon dioxide into bicarbonate, and is responsible for biomineralization processes in animals.
The study focused on carbonic anhydrase proteins, which convert the oxygen we breathe into the energy needed to power our body.
Acetazolamide has been hypothesized to act by inhibiting carbonic anhydrase, causing metabolic acidosis and thus prompting the individual to hyperventilate as a compensatory response.
The absence of any metabolic acidosis with an alkaline urine pH and the absence of cerebral calcifications excluded a diagnosis of carbonic anhydrase II deficiency syndrome.
The micromotors are six-micrometre-long tubes with an an outer polymer surface that holds the enzyme carbonic anhydrase, which speeds up the reaction between carbon dioxide and water to form bicarbonate.
