Summary of Clinical Use Click here for help
Verosudil is being evaluated in Phase II clinical trial for its potential to reduce intraocular pressure in patients diagnosed with ocular hypertension or glaucoma [1]. Click here to link to's listing of AR-12286 trials.
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects Click here for help
Non-human primate studies suggest that AR-12286 lowers intraocular pressure primarily by increasing aqueous humor outflow through the trabecular meshwork, as do other Rho kinase inhibitors such as fasudil and Y27632.
