Figure 4. Conjunctival impression cytology
stained by cresyl violet and impression cytology scale. BAC+Latanoprost
(A) induced numerous polymorphonuclear inflammatory cells as
islets (red circles). BAC+Travoprost (B) showed
epithelial damage with inflammatory islets. BAC+Bimatoprost
(C) induced slight epithelial cell disorganization. PBS (D)
and LCEm (E) rabbit eyes presented almost normal epithelial
patterns without any obvious inflammatory cell infiltration (original
size 40X). IC scale (F) showed that the highest toxicity was
found in BAC+latanoprost-, BAC+travoprost-, and
BAC+bimatoprost-treated eyes. LCEm- and PBS-instilled groups
were similar. The asterisk indicates a p<0.0005 compared with BAC+latanoprost.
The sharp indicates a p<0.01 compared with BAC+travoprost
and the filled diamond indicates a p<0.05 compared with BAC+bimatoprost.
