Greater IOP-lowering effect of drug seen in black population


Memphis, TN-Travoprost 0.004% ophthalmic solution (Travatan, Alcon) is an effective IOP-lowering medication in patients of all racial origins. However, travoprost reduces IOP more in black patients compared with non-black patients, and its efficacy in blacks exceeds that associated with both timolol (Timoptic, Merck) and latanoprost (Xalatan, Pharmacia), said Peter A. Netland, MD, PhD.
