Medical Definition of Carbonic anhydrase inhibitors

1. A class of compounds that reduces the secretion of h+ ions by the proximal kidney tubule through inhibition of carbonic anhydrase (carbonate dehydratase). Although their therapeutic use as diuretics is not frequent, they are used in clinical conditions where alkalinization of the urine is beneficial. Their most frequent application is in the reduction of intra-ocular pressure in the treatment of glaucoma. (12 Dec 1998)
