Imidazole administered intraperitoneally to albino rabbits at a dose of 250 mg. per kilogram inhibited the rise of aqueous humor protein concentration by approximately 50 per cent 30 minutes after paracentesis. Systemic imidazole administered daily to albino rabbits injected with intravitreal Shigella endotoxin decreased the conjunctival and iris hyperemia and reduced the anterior chamber cell and flare and the haziness of the optical media. Systematically administered imidazole had no effect on the aqueous humor concentrations of c AMP or c GMP in the rabbit. In vitro studies of rabbit ciliary body iris phosphodiesterase activity indicated no effect of imidazole at a concentration of 10-3 molar.
