Fixed-combination drug yields superior IOP lowering

February 1, 2005

New Orleans—Results of a prospective, randomized, double-masked study demonstrate a fixed combination of travoprost 0.004% and timolol 0.5% (Extravan, Alcon Laboratories) administered once daily is safe, well-tolerated, and offers better IOP lowering than monotherapy using either of its components, said Howard S. Barnebey, MD.
