Safety and Efficacy of Changing to DuoTrav in Patients Uncontrolled on Timolol

This study has been completed.

The purpose of this study was to assess the safety and intraocular pressure (IOP)-lowering efficacy of changing to DuoTrav® from prior timolol 0.5% monotherapy in participants with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.

Condition Intervention Phase
Glaucoma Drug: Travoprost 0.004%/timolol maleate 0.5% fixed combination Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Safety and Efficacy of Using the Travoprost/Timolol Fixed Combination (DuoTrav®) in Patients With Open-Angle Glaucoma or Uncontrolled Ocular Hypertension by Beta-blocker Monotherapy (Timolol 0.5%)

Further study details as provided by Alcon Research:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Intraocular Pressure (IOP) Change at the Final Visit From Baseline (Prior Beta-blocker Monotherapy) [ Time Frame: Baseline, up to 6 weeks ]
    As measured by Goldmann applanation tonometry. High IOP (outside the normal range) can be a risk factor for developing glaucoma or glaucoma progression (leading to optic nerve damage). A more negative change indicates a greater amount of improvement.

Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: February 2011
Study Completion Date: March 2012
Primary Completion Date: March 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: DuoTrav
Travoprost 0.004%/timolol maleate 0.5% fixed combination, one drop to the study eye nightly for up to 6 weeks
Drug: Travoprost 0.004%/timolol maleate 0.5% fixed combination
Other Name: DuoTrav


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Clinical diagnosis of ocular hypertension, primary open-angle glaucoma or pigmentary glaucoma;
  • Intraocular pressure (IOP) of between 19 to 35 mmHg at any time of the day in at least one eye (designated as the study eye);
  • On a stable medication regimen for IOP reduction one week prior to the screening visit;
  • Best corrected visual acuity better than 20/200 (Snellen) or 1.0 (logMAR) in each eye;
  • Sign informed consent;
  • Other protocol-defined inclusion criteria may apply.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Known medical history of allergy, hypersensitivity or low tolerance to any of the components of DuoTrav®;
  • Any abnormality that would preclude the reliable performance of applanation tonometry in either eye;
  • Infection in either eye;
  • Conventional or laser intraocular surgery in either eye 3 months prior to screening visit;
  • Risk for visual field or visual acuity worsening, in the opinion of the investigator;
  • Women of childbearing potential;
  • Pregnant or lactating women;
  • Any condition that, in the opinion of the principal investigator, could interfere with participation in the study, or that could present a risk to the participant.
  • Participation in another clinical study within 30 days before the screening visit;
  • Other protocol-defined exclusion criteria may apply.
