Latanoprostene bunod effectively reduces IOP

December 26, 2014

A study comparing four concentrations of latanoprostene bunod with latanoprost 0.005% showed that latanoprostene bunod 0.024% led to significantly greater reductions in diurnal IOP than latanoprost.

Weinreb and colleagues randomized 396 adults with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension in one or both eyes to receive latanoprostene bunod 0.006%, 0.012%, 0.024% or 0.040% or latanoprost 0.005% once daily in the evening for 28 days, according to the VOYAGER study results published in the British Journal of Ophthalmology.
