Rocklatan is believed to utilize 2 outflow pathways to reduce IOP

Rocklatan brings together the first-in-class rho kinase inhibitor, netarsudil, and market-leading prostaglandin, latanoprost, to help lower IOP with one drop.


Netarsudil

Netarsudil is a rho kinase (ROCK) inhibitor specifically designed to target the trabecular meshwork. It is believed to reduce IOP by increasing the outflow of aqueous humor.1,2

Latanoprost

Latanoprost is a prostaglandin that is believed to reduce IOP by increasing the outflow of aqueous humor through the uveoscleral pathway.3

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Contraindications

None.

Warnings and Precautions

  • Pigmentation changes
  • Eyelash changes
  • Intraocular inflammation
  • Macular edema
  • Herpetic keratitis

Adverse reactions

Rocklatan: The most common ocular adverse reaction is conjunctival hyperemia (59%). Five percent of patients discontinued therapy due to conjunctival hyperemia. Other common ocular adverse reactions were: instillation site pain (20%), corneal verticillata (15%), and conjunctival hemorrhage (11%). Eye pruritus, visual acuity reduced, increased lacrimation, instillation site discomfort, and blurred vision were reported in 5-8% of patients.

Netarsudil 0.02%: Instillation site erythema, corneal staining, increased lacrimation and erythema of eyelid.

Latanoprost 0.005%: Foreign body sensation, punctate keratitis, burning and stinging, itching, increased pigmentation of the iris, excessive tearing, eyelid discomfort, dry eye, eye pain, eyelid margin crusting, erythema of the eyelid, upper respiratory tract infection/nasopharyngitis/influenza, photophobia, eyelid edema, myalgia/arthralgia/back pain, and rash/allergic reaction.
