The Mercury 3 clinical trial included Roclanda, which in the United States is marketed as Rocklatan (netarsudil and latanoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.02%/0.005% and represents a fixed-dose combination of Rhopressa (netarsudil ophthalmic solution) 0.02% and prostaglandin analog latanoprost. Ganfort represented the comparator, a fixed-dose combination of prostaglandin analog Lumigan and beta blocker timolol.

Rocklatan is the only fixed-dose combination product commercially available in the United States that includes a prostaglandin analog. The Ganfort fixed-dose combination includes a prostaglandin analog and a beta blocker, and while it is approved for use in Europe, it is not approved for use in the United States.

About Rocklatan (named Roclanda in Europe)

Rocklatan (netarsudil and latanoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.02%/0.005% is a once-daily eye drop that is a fixed-dose combination of latanoprost, the most widely-prescribed prostaglandin analog (PGA), and netarsudil, the active ingredient in Rhopressa (netarsudil ophthalmic solution) 0.02%, a first-in-class Rho kinase (ROCK) inhibitor specifically designed to target the trabecular meshwork (the eye’s principal drainage pathway). The diseased trabecular meshwork is considered to be the main cause of elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) in open-angle glaucoma and ocular hypertension. Rhopressa works by restoring outflow through the trabecular meshwork, while latanoprost increases fluid outflow through a secondary mechanism known as the uveoscleral pathway. In clinical trials of Rocklatan, the most common adverse reactions were conjunctival hyperemia, corneal verticillata, instillation site pain, and conjunctival hemorrhage. More information about Rocklatan, including the product label, is available at www.rocklatan.com.
