24-hour Intraocular Pressure (IOP) Control With Dorzolamide/Timolol and Latanoprost/Timolol Fixed Combination in Open-angle Glaucoma

2014-07-23 21:34:56 | BioPortfolio


The primary objective of this crossover trial is to compare the 3-month mean 24-hour intraocular pressure (IOP) control and safety of dorzolamide/timolol fixed combination (DTFC) given twice daily, versus latanoprost/timolol fixed combination (LTFC) given in the evening and placebo given in the morning, versus adjunctive therapy with DTFC given twice daily and latanoprost 0.005% given once in the evening in open-angle glaucoma patients who are insufficiently controlled with latanoprost monotherapy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A pharmaceutical preparation of brimonidine tartrate and timolol maleate. The combined ADRENERGIC ALPHA2 RECEPTOR AGONIST and ADRENERGIC BETA-ANTAGONIST activity of these drugs reduce INTRAOCULAR PRESSURE in GLAUCOMA patients.

A beta-adrenergic antagonist similar in action to PROPRANOLOL. The levo-isomer is the more active. Timolol has been proposed as an antihypertensive, antiarrhythmic, antiangina, and antiglaucoma agent. It is also used in the treatment of MIGRAINE DISORDERS and tremor.

Forms to which substances are incorporated to improve the delivery and the effectiveness of drugs. Drug carriers are used in drug-delivery systems such as the controlled-release technology to prolong in vivo drug actions, decrease drug metabolism, and reduce drug toxicity. Carriers are also used in designs to increase the effectiveness of drug delivery to the target sites of pharmacological actions. Liposomes, albumin microspheres, soluble synthetic polymers, DNA complexes, protein-drug conjugates, and carrier erythrocytes among others have been employed as biodegradable drug carriers.

Diminished or failed response of an organism, disease or tissue to the intended effectiveness of a chemical or drug. It should be differentiated from DRUG TOLERANCE which is the progressive diminution of the susceptibility of a human or animal to the effects of a drug, as a result of continued administration.

A component of the Executive Office of the President established by the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988. The Office establishes policies, priorities, and objectives for national DRUG AND NARCOTIC CONTROL. The goals of the program are to reduce illicit drug use, manufacturing, and trafficking, drug-related crime and violence, and drug-related health consequences.
