Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study was to demonstrate that the intraocular pressure-lowering efficacy of Travoprost 0.003% is equivalent to TRAVATAN® in adult patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Open-Angle Glaucoma Ocular Hypertension Drug: Travoprost ophthalmic solution, 0.003% Drug: Travoprost ophthalmic solution, 0.004% Phase 3

Detailed Description:
This study consisted of six visits conducted during two sequential phases. The Screening/Eligibility phase included one screening visit and two eligibility visits. A washout period based on previous ocular medication preceded Eligibility Visit 1. Subjects who met all inclusion/exclusion criteria at both eligibility visits were randomized (1:1) at the second eligibility visit. The Treatment phase consisted of three on-therapy visits (Week 2, Week 6, and Month 3).

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Travoprost 0.003%
Travoprost ophthalmic solution, 0.003%, one drop instilled in each eye, once daily, for three months
Drug: Travoprost ophthalmic solution, 0.003%
Active Comparator: TRAVATAN
Travoprost ophthalmic solution, 0.004%, one drop instilled in each eye, once daily, for three months
Drug: Travoprost ophthalmic solution, 0.004%
Other Name: TRAVATAN®

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mean Intraocular Pressure (IOP) at Week 2, Week 6, and Month 3 for Each Assessment Time Point (8 AM, 10 AM, and 4 PM) [ Time Frame: Week 2, Week 6, Month 3 (8 AM, 10 AM, 4 PM) ]
    As measured by Goldmann applanation tonometry. One eye from each subject was chosen as the study eye and only the study eye was used in the efficacy analysis. A higher IOP can be a greater risk factor for developing glaucoma or glaucoma progression (leading to optic nerve damage).
