Ednol (Eye Drops)

“Engineered to Besiege The Inflammation Inciting Agents”



Loteprednol Etabonate 0.5%


Ednol consists of Loteprednol Etabonate which is a "soft" steroid that belongs to the class of Glucocorticoids.

At molecular level, unbound Glucocorticoids readily cross cell membranes and bind with high affinity (Affinity is gerater when compared with other Glucocorticoids), to specific Cytoplasmic receptors. This binding induces a response by modifying transcription and, ultimately protein synthesis to achieve the formation of Anti-Inflammatory Protein that inhibits the enzyme Phospholipase A2 which is needed in supply of Arachidonic acid. The latter is responsible for the formation of the mediators of inflammatory causing mediators.

Thus inhibits the edema, fibrin deposition, capillary dilation, leukocyte migration, capillary proliferation, fibroblast proliferation, deposition of collagen, and scar formation with inflammation.

Ednol is indicated for the treatment of steroid responsive inflammatory conditions of the eye such as Allergic Conjunctivitis, Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis, Anterior Uveitis, Acne Rosacea, Superficial Punctuate Keratitis, Herpes Zoster Keratitis, Iritis, and In Post Operative Pain & Inflammation.
