Nitric oxide-donating compounds for IOP lowering in glaucoma.

Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol 2018 Jun 23;93(6):290-299. Epub 2018 Mar 23.

Servicio de Oftalmología, Instituto de Investigación Sanitaria San Carlos (IdISSC), Hospital Clínico San Carlos. Red de Enfermedades Oculares OftaRed, Instituto de Salud Carlos III, Madrid, España; Departamento de Oftalmología y ORL, Instituto de Investigaciones Oftalmológicas Ramón Castroviejo, Facultad de Medicina, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Madrid, España.

Pharmacological strategies to reduce IOP are directed towards the reduction of aqueous humour (AH) production and/or the increase in AH drainage through the uveoscleral pathway. However, there are no drugs currently available as first-line treatment to increase AH outflow primarily via the conventional route. Read More
