- Aqueous Humor Concentration of Study Drug [ Time Frame: approximately 3 to 4 months ]Patients were randomly assigned to receive one drop of either moxifloxacin or besifloxacin every 10 minutes for a total of 4 doses, with the last dose given 30 minutes prior to the time of the cataract incision. The aqueous humor was corrected through the paracentesis site. The specimen was transferred immediately to a polypropylene tube and stored upright at ≤ 20° C. Moxifloxacin and besifloxacin concentrations in the aqueous humor were determined using a validated high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)-tandem mass spectrometry method.
- Disk Diffusion Assay of Collected Aqueous Humor [ Time Frame: Approximately 3-4 months. ]A disk diffusion assay was performed to determine the relative antimicrobial activity of the study drug in the aqueous humor. The reference organism used was a clinical isolate of S. epidermidis that will be grown and adjusted to a 0.5 MacFarland turbidity standard. The standardized suspension was inoculated onto a Mueller-Hinton II agar. A sample of the aqueous humor was applied to 6 mm sterile disks, dried, and then placed onto the inoculated Mueller-Hinton II agar plates. The plates were incubated for 24 hours at 35° C. The zone sizes were then recorded.
