Alfuzosin, a selective alpha-1a antagonistis is the most recently approved AARAS, with limited cardiac toxicity and exclusively used for lower urinary tract syndromes (LUTS). In order to reduce pill burden and better patient compliance modified release (MR) formulations have been developed. Alfuzosin MR tablet was developed by the use of hot-melt granulation techniques using mono- and diglycerides as rate controlling membranes to minimize health care cost and uses of costly excipients. The other purpose of the study was to evaluate in vitro-in vivo performance of the scale up batch in healthy human subjects for commercialization...

Those with conditions known to affect pupil diameter were excluded...

Alfuzosin (UroXatral, Sanofi-Synthelabo) a quinazoline derivative, has well-documented alpha(1)-adrenoreceptor antagonist activity. These receptors are present in the smooth muscle located at the bladder base, proximal urethra, prostate and prostatic capsule as well as in vascular and nervous systems. Consequently, alfuzosin has the ability to reduce the tone of these areas, effectively decreasing bladder outlet resistance. A sustained-release formulation of alfuzosin is currently available in Europe and is FDA-approved in the US...
