Glaukos submits new drug application to FDA for iDose TR
Glaukos has submitted a New Drug Application (NDA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for iDose TR, a micro-invasive intraocular implant designed to continuously deliver therapeutic levels of a proprietary formulation of travoprost from within the eye for extended periods of time. iDose TR is intended to address ubiquitous patient non-compliance and chronic side effects associated with topical glaucoma medications.
“The submission of the iDose TR NDA represents a significant milestone for our company, resulting from more than a decade of our teams’ unrelenting research, development and clinical efforts to bring this potential game-changing therapy one step closer to patients who may need a new glaucoma treatment alternative,” said Thomas Burns, Glaukos chairman and chief executive officer in a press release. “We look forward to working closely with the FDA in their pending review process and continue to believe iDose TR can be a transformative novel technology able to fundamentally improve the treatment paradigm for patients with glaucoma.”
