Summary for Patent: 5,944,021
Title: Therapeutic use of a carbonic anhydrase enzyme inhibitor for the treatment of brain edema
Abstract:A method for treating victims of cerebral edema is presented that includes the intravenous injection of a carbonic anhydrase enzyme inhibitor that passes through the blood-brain barrier, such as acetazolamide (A.K.A., DIAMOX.RTM.), which is a readily-available and often-prescribed diuretic. Such edema, or brain swelling may be caused as a result of ischemic strokes especially, but also swelling due to tumors, surgeries, or cerebral trauma. It is preferred to combine the a carbonic anhydrase enzyme inhibitor therapy with hyperventilation of the lungs, even including the use of supplemental oxygen, thereby to reduce the concentration of carbon dioxide in the blood and hence in the brain.
