The purpose of this study is to evaluate the intraocular pressure (IOP)-lowering efficacy of Travoprost 0.004% POLYQUAD (PQ) ophthalmic solution compared to Timolol ophthalmic solution (0.5% or 0.25%) in pediatric glaucoma patients.

Condition Intervention Phase
Pediatric Glaucoma
Elevated IOP in Pediatric Patients
Ocular Hypertension in Pediatric Patients
Drug: Travoprost 0.004% PQ ophthalmic solution
Drug: Timolol, 0.5% or 0.25% ophthalmic solution
Drug: Travoprost Vehicle
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A 3 Month, Multicenter, Double-Masked Safety and Efficacy Study of Travoprost Ophthalmic Solution, 0.004% Compared to Timolol (0.5% or 0.25%) in Pediatric Glaucoma Patients

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Change From Baseline in IOP at Month 3 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 0), Month 3 ]
    IOP (fluid pressure inside the eye) was assessed using a calibrated tonometer and measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg). A higher IOP can be a greater risk factor for developing glaucoma or glaucoma progression (leading to optic nerve damage). One eye from each participant was chosen as the study eye and only the study eye was used for analysis.

Enrollment: 184
Study Start Date: September 2012
Study Completion Date: March 2014
Primary Completion Date: March 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Travoprost
Travoprost 0.004% PQ ophthalmic solution, 1 drop administered in each eye in the evening with travoprost vehicle administered once daily in the morning for 3 months
Drug: Travoprost 0.004% PQ ophthalmic solution Drug: Travoprost Vehicle
Inactive ingredients used to maintain masking
Active Comparator: Timolol
Timolol, 0.5% or 0.25% ophthalmic solution, 1 drop administered in each eye twice daily (once in the morning and once in the evening) for 3 months
Drug: Timolol, 0.5% or 0.25% ophthalmic solution
Patients 2 months to < 3 years of age received 0.25%


Ages Eligible for Study:   2 Months to 17 Years   (Child)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Diagnosis of pediatric glaucoma or ocular hypertension.
  • Qualifying mean IOP at the Eligibility Visit in at least one eye.
  • Written informed consent, including assent when applicable, MUST be obtained from the parent or legally authorized representative prior to any procedure specified in the protocol, including screening procedures.
  • Other protocol-defined inclusion criteria may apply.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Females of childbearing potential who are pregnant, intend to become pregnant during the study period, breast feeding, or not using any form of birth control measures.
  • History of chronic, recurrent or severe inflammatory eye disease.
  • Ocular trauma requiring medical attention within the past 3 months prior to the Screening Visit.
  • Ocular infection or ocular inflammation within the past 30 days prior to the Screening Visit.
  • Clinically significant or progressive retinal disease.
  • Severe ocular pathology (including severe dry eye) that, in the opinion of the Investigator, would preclude the administration of a topical prostaglandin analog or a topical beta-blocker.
  • Intraocular surgery in the study eye within 30 days prior to the Screening Visit.
  • Any abnormality preventing reliable applanation tonometry.
  • Other protocol-defined exclusion criteria may apply.
