Efficacy Comparison of Xalatan and Azopt on POAG and OH

2014-08-27 03:15:18 | BioPortfolio


Prostaglandin analogs (PGAs) represent a new class of active ocular hypotensive agents and possess a unique mechanism of action. Many studies suggested that 0.005% Latanoprost was more effective and safer than other anti-glaucoma medications, such as beta-blockers. It has also been found to be more effective than other class of anti-glaucoma medications such as carbonic anhydrase inhibitors and alpha agonists. However data on such comparison is lacking in Chinese patients. So it is necessary to increase China experience and get clinical data from China. Besides latanoprost, brinzolamide is known as one of the other ocular hypotensive agents with less systemic adverse effects, therefore it is selected as the controlled medication of this study. The administration phase will be 4 weeks because it is long enough to compare both efficacy and safety of the study drugs and accounting for following-up conditions in China, it will be easier for the investigators to get enough subjects in a limited stage if the observation time is shorter.

Before treatment with the study drugs, any previous glaucoma drugs will be washed out. The minimum washout periods are 5 days for cholinergic agonists, 1 week for adrenergic agonists, 3 weeks for adrenergic β receptor blockers and 4 weeks for PGAS. After washout, the patients will be randomised send to two parallel study groups: one group will receive latanoprost 0.005% once daily in the evening, the other group receive 1.0% Brinzolamide twice daily. Randomization will be obtained using a list of random numbers .During the study there will be four visits: screening, baseline, 2 weeks, and 4 weeks of treatment. The IOP will be measured with a Goldmann tonometer at 8 am for each visit. The tonometry will be performed before the administration of the dose of the day in patients treated with Brinzolamide. Three separate measurements will be taken for each eye and the mean of the three measurements will be used in the statistical analysis. Best corrected visual acuity and refraction will be determined and a slit lamp examination, ophthalmoscopy will be performed at all visits.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Ocular manifestations secondary to various NEOPLASMS in which antibodies to antigens of the primary tumor cross-react with ocular antigens. This autoimmune response often leads to visual loss and other ocular dysfunctions.

A condition in which the intraocular pressure is elevated above normal and which may lead to glaucoma.

The dioptric adjustment of the EYE (to attain maximal sharpness of retinal imagery for an object of regard) referring to the ability, to the mechanism, or to the process. Ocular accommodation is the effecting of refractive changes by changes in the shape of the CRYSTALLINE LENS. Loosely, it refers to ocular adjustments for VISION, OCULAR at various distances.
