PURPOSE: This study compared the intraocular pressure (IOP)-lowering efficacy of 2 fixed combination products, brinzolamide 1%/timolol 0.5% suspension (Azarga, Brinz/Tim) and dorzolamide 2%/timolol 0.5% solution (Dorz/Tim), in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension who required a change in therapy due to elevated IOP while receiving IOP-lowering medication. METHODS: This was a one-year, multicenter, randomized, double-masked, active-controlled, parallel-group trial of Brinz/Tim and Dorz/Tim. IOP assessments were taken at 8 and 10 AM at week 2 and months 3 and 9, and at 8 AM, 10 AM, and 4 PM at months 6 and 12. Primary efficacy was a noninferiority comparison of mean IOP at ..View full abstract
