The first new mechanisms of action (MOA) in a generation to treat patients with glaucoma, the largest prescription market in ophthalmology.
Designed to reduce elevated intraocular pressure (IOP), the cause of vision loss in open-angle glaucoma.
Two late development-stage products – Rhopressa™ (netarsudil ophthalmic solution) 0.02% and Roclatan™ (netarsudil/latanoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.02%/0.005%.
Both products are eye drops taken once a day in the evening.
Each product has multiple mechanisms of action, including the novel targeting of the diseased tissue, or main drain in the eye – the source of elevated IOP; potential for disease modification.
