inhibitor

[in′hib·əd·ər]
(aerospace engineering)
A substance bonded, taped, or dip-dried onto a solid propellant to restrict the burning surface and to give direction to the burning process.
(chemistry)
A substance which is capable of stopping or retarding a chemical reaction; to be technically useful, it must be effective in low concentration.

Inhibitor

 

a circuit having m + n inputs and a single output, at which a signal can appear only when there are no signals on the m inputs (inhibiting). The other n inputs (principal) form one of the two logic connections, “AND” or “OR.” Inhibitors are used extensively in computers. They are very often understood to be a circuit having a single principal input and a single inhibiting input. A signal appears at the output of such a circuit when a signal is present on the principal input but there is none on the inhibiting input. Such an inhibitor is called an anticoincidence gate; its conventional representation is given in Figure 1.

Interactions: Concomitant administration of dorzolamide and oral carbonic anhydrase inhibitors is not recommended as there is potential for an additive effect on the known systemic effects.

Among pharmacologically-treated patients, two-thirds are currently prescribed prostaglandin analogs, specifically Allergan's Lumigan, Alcon's Travatan Z, and Pfizer's Xalatan, with the remaining use being split between fixed combination products (Allergan's Combigan), beta blockers (Alcon's Betoptic S), alpha agonists (Allergan's Alphagan P), and carbonic anhydrase inhibitors (Alcon's Azopt).
Caution is advised for patients receiving highdose aspirin and methazolamide concomitantly, as anorexia, tachypnea, lethargy, coma, and death have been reported with concomitant use of highdose aspirin and carbonic anhydrase inhibitors.
