Trusopt (Dorzolamide Hydrochloride Ophthalmic) - Summary

 
 



TRUSOPT SUMMARY

TRUSOPT (dorzolamide hydrochloride ophthalmic solution) is a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor formulated for topical ophthalmic use.

TRUSOPT Ophthalmic Solution is indicated in the treatment of elevated intraocular pressure in patients with ocular hypertension or open-angle glaucoma.

NEWS HIGHLIGHTS

Published Studies Related to Trusopt (Dorzolamide Ophthalmic)

[Double-masked, phase III comparative study of the combination ophthalmic solution of the 1% dorzolamide hydrochloride/0.5% timolol maleate (MK-0507A) in patients with glaucoma and ocular hypertension]. [2011.06]
CONCLUSION: MK-0507A has a significantly superior IOP-lowering effect relative to timolol. MK-0507A also showed a non-inferior IOP-lowering effect relative to the concomitant therapy. MK-0507A was safe compared to both timolol and concomitant therapy.

[Comparative study of the pressure lowering efficacy and variations in the ocular pulse amplitude between fixed combinations of dorzolamide/timolol and brinzolamide/timolol]. [2011.05]
OBJECTIVE: To determine possible differences in the intraocular pressure (IOP) and ocular pulse amplitude (OPA) lowering capacity of the fixed drug combinations dorzolamide/timolol and brinzolamide/timolol... CONCLUSIONS: Both fixed combinations were similarly effective in reducing intraocular pressure and ocular pulse amplitude. Adverse effects related to both treatments were mild and well-tolerated, though itching occurred most frequently in the eyes treated with dorzolamide/timolol.

Pharmacodynamic equivalence study of two preparations of eye drops containing dorzolamide and timolol in healthy volunteers. [2011]
CONCLUSION: Both formulations showed comparable results obtained at a time probably equal to the maximum effect concerning the primary target parameter lowering of IOP 2 h post dose. The safety profile of both preparations showed no difference.

[Double-masked, phase III comparative study of the combination ophthalmic solution of the 1% dorzolamide hydrochloride/0.5% timolol maleate (MK-0507A) in patients with glaucoma and ocular hypertension]. [Article in Japanese] [2011]
CONCLUSION: MK-0507A has a significantly superior IOP-lowering effect relative to

Comparison of the efficacy and tolerability of preservative-free and preservative-containing formulations of the dorzolamide/timolol fixed combination (COSOPT) in patients with elevated intraocular pressure in a randomized clinical trial. [2010.12]
BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy and tolerability of preservative-free (PF) and preservative-containing (PC) formulations of the dorzolamide/timolol fixed combination (COSOPT) in patients with elevated intraocular pressure (IOP)... CONCLUSIONS: In patients with elevated IOP, PF and PC dorzolamide/timolol were equivalent in efficacy for change in trough and peak IOP, and had generally similar tolerability.

Clinical Trials Related to Trusopt (Dorzolamide Ophthalmic)

Comparison of Brimonidine Purite, Dorzolamide, and Brinzolamide as Adjunctive Therapy to Prostaglandin Analogs [Completed]
The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy of brimonidine Purite, dorzolamide, and brinzolamide in reducing intraocular pressure when added to prostaglandin analog therapy (bimatoprost, latanoprost, or travoprost) in patients with glaucoma or ocular hypertension.

MK0507A Phase III Double-Blind, Comparative Study [Completed]
The clinical study compares safety and efficacy of MK0507A (dorzolamide 1. 0% / timolol 0. 5%) with 1) timolol 0. 5% and with 2) concomitant therapy with dorzolamide 1. 0% / timolol 0. 5% in patients with glaucoma and ocular hypertension.

Treatment of Pediatric Glaucoma [Recruiting]
Objectives:

The study will assess the ocular hypotensive effect of latanoprost and dorzolamide in a selected sample of patients affected by primary Pediatric Glaucoma (PG), refractory to surgical procedures. Safety will be assessed, too.

Ocular Blood Flow in Early Glaucoma Patients Before and After Treatment With Dorzolamide [Recruiting]
Impaired ocular blood flow is an important risk factor in the pathogenesis of primary open angle glaucoma (POAG). A few studies suggest that topical dorzolamide 2% may increase optic nerve perfusion. The objectives of this study are to learn the effects of dorzolamide on the retinal and optic nerve blood flow of glaucoma patients.

The present study is a prospective, randomized, double-masked, crossover design study of newly diagnosed or already treated patients with early glaucoma.

The investigators will check ocular blood flow parameters using the Canon Laser Blood Flowmeter (CLBF), used to evaluate retinal arteriole blood flow, and the Heidelberg retinal flowmeter (HRF), which measures blood flow through capillary beds in the retina and optic nerve head.

Any demonstrated improvements to retinal and optic nerve blood flow with dorzolamide, will mean that the drug may protect against ischaemic nerve and retinal damage. Any documented improvement in flow could lead to a major change in the management of glaucoma patients as well as other retinal ischemic diseases such as diabetic retinopathy and central retinal vein occlusion.

Safety and Efficacy of Triple Combination Therapy With Dorzolamide Hydrochloride / Brimonidine Tartrate / Timolol Ophthalmic Solution in Patients With Glaucoma or Ocular Hypertension [Not yet recruiting]
This study will investigate the safety and efficacy of Triple Combination Therapy with dorzolamide hydrochloride/brimonidine tartrate/timolol ophthalmic solution in patients with glaucoma or ocular hypertension who have elevated IOP on dorzolamide hydrochloride/timolol maleate combination therapy.
