After synchronization using serum-free RPMI 1640 culture medium, ARPE-19 cells were incubated with 0.05, 0.5, or 5 mg/mL 5-Fu; 0.0002, 0.002, or 0.02 mg/mL MMC; 0.025, 0.25, or 2.5 mg/mL BVZ; 0.05, 0.5, or 5 mg/mL 5-Fu + 2.5 mg/mL BVZ; 0.0002, 0.002, or 0.02 mg/mL MMC + 2.5 mg/mL BVZ; or PBS as the control for 24 h, after which they were washed with PBS.
ARPE-19 cells were treated with 5 mg/mL 5-Fu, 0.02 mg/mL MMC, 2.5 mg/mL BVZ, 5 mg/mL 5-Fu + 2.5 mg/mL BVZ, 0.02 mg/mL MMC + 2.5 mg/mL BVZ, or PBS as the control.

ARPE-19 cells were treated with 5 mg/mL 5-Fu, 0.02 mg/mL MMC, 2.5 mg/mL BVZ 5 mg/mL 5-Fu + 2.5 mg/mL BVZ, 0.02 mg/mL MMC + 2.5 mg/mL BVZ, or PBS as the control and incubated at 37[degrees]C in 50 mL/LC[O.sub.2] for 48 h.
The time point was set at 0 h and the cells were treated with 0.05 mg/mL 5-Fu, 0.0002 mg/mL MMC, 2.5 mg/mL BVZ, 0.05 mg/mL 5-Fu + 2.5 mg/mL BVZ, or 0.0002 mg/mL MMC+ 2.5 mg/mL BVZ.
BVZ treatment group: at the end of GFS, 0.1 mL (25 mg/mL) of BVZ was injected under the conjunctiva next to the filtering bleb.
5-Fu + BVZ treatment group: at the end of GFS, 0.1 mL of 5-Fu and 0.1 mL of BVZ were injected under the conjunctiva into one side of the filtering bleb.
MMC + BVZ treatment group: an MMC cotton pad (0.2 mg/mL) was placed for 3 min; after the surgery, 0.1 mL of BVZ was injected under the contralateral conjunctiva of the filtering blebs.
After adding 0.025, 0.25, and 2.5 mg/mL BVZ to the cultured ARPE-19 cells, no significant cytotoxicity was observed compared with that in the PBS group.
After culturing for 24 h, the VEGF levels in RPE cells in the BVZ and BVZ + 5-Fu groups were significantly lower than that in the control group, while the VEGF levels in the 5-Fu and MMC groups significantly increased (Figure 2).
The effects of 5-Fu, MMC, BVZ, BVZ + 5-Fu, and BVZ + MMC on the cell cycle and apoptosis of RPE cells were evaluated using flow cytometry.
