Loteprednol is a corticosteroid which is thought to act by the induction of phospholipase A2 inhibitory proteins, which control the biosynthesis of potent mediators of inflammation such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes by inhibiting the release of their common precursor arachidonic acid. Tobramycin is a member of aminoglycoside which shows bactericidal activity by inhibiting protein synthesis of bacteria.
