OTX-TIC is an injectable intracameral prostaglandin analog (PGA) implant undergoing evaluation as a treatment for elevated intraocular pressure targeting patients with moderate to severe open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.
OTX-TIC is designed to be a bioresorbable implant containing micronized travoprost that is injected into the anterior chamber of the eye, with a target duration of drug delivery of three to four months. Preclinical studies in beagles have demonstrated sustained intraocular pressure lowering and maintenance of drug levels in the aqueous humor.
“OTX-TIC may provide a transformative modality with the potential to change the current standard of care.”
