July 1, 2004

Fort Worth, TX-Alcon Inc. is adding 22 susceptible pathogens to its moxifloxacin HCl 0.5% ophthalmic solution (Vigamox) in vitro labeling. The additions, which the FDA approved in late April, include atypical mycobacteria and Propionibacterium acnes. Alcon said its fourth-generation fluoroquinolone eye drop now offers the broadest spectrum in the ophthalmic fluoroquinolone category.
