Study Comparing the Effects of Latanoprostene Bunod and Timolol on Retinal Blood Vessel Density and Visual Acuity
The purpose of this research study is to compare the effect of Latanoprostene Bunod and Timolol on eye pressure and blood vessels of the back of the eye.
A Randomized, Single Center, Masked, Crossover Study Comparing the Effects of Latanoprostene Bunod and Timolol on Retinal Blood Vessel Density and Visual Acuity in Patients With Ocular Hypertension or Primary Open Angle Glaucoma
The primary objective of this clinical investigation is to compare the difference in change in retinal blood vessel density (peripapillary and macular) between latanoprostene bunod (LBN) ophthalmic solution 0.024% dosed once daily (QD) and timolol maleate 0.5% dosed twice daily (BID) in subjects with OAG or OHT and in normal subjects.
Primary Efficacy Endpoint The primary efficacy endpoint for this study is the change in retinal blood vessel density (peripapillary and macular) between treatment groups after 4 weeks of treatment (Visit 4 [Week 5] and Visit 6 [Week 11]).
Secondary Efficacy Endpoints The secondary efficacy endpoint for this study is change in best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA).
Safety Endpoints The safety endpoint for this study is the incidence of ocular and systemic adverse events (AEs).
