Aerie Pharmaceuticals announced that on July 11, dosing commenced of the first patients enrolled in the Phase 3 registration clinical trials of Rhopressa, a novel once-daily, triple-action eye drop being tested for its ability to lower intraocular pressure in patients with glaucoma or ocular hypertension. Aerie anticipates total enrollment of approximately 1,300 patients in three Phase 3 registration trials of Rhopressa. The trials will measure efficacy over three months and safety over 12 months. The primary efficacy endpoint of the trials will be to demonstrate non-inferiority of IOP lowering for Rhopressa compared to timolol. There will be two trials conducted in the United States, named “Rocket 1” and “Rocket 2,” and one safety-only study in Canada, named “Rocket 3.” Pending success of the studies and regulatory approval, Aerie expects RhopressaTM to compete against PGA products as an initial therapy for patients with IOPs of 26 mmHg or below at the time of diagnosis, which represents the significant majority of patients with glaucoma and ocular hypertension. Additionally, the company believes Rhopressa may be used as the add-on product of choice for patients on PGA therapy requiring further IOP lowering, due to its strong and consistent IOP-lowering effect, once-daily dosing and ability to target the trabecular meshwork.
