June 13, 2014

The Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has issued a positive opinion for brinzolamide 10 mg/mL and brimonidine tartrate 2 mg/mL eye drops suspension (Simbrinza, Alcon) to decrease elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) in adult patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension, for whom monotherapy provides insufficient IOP reduction.
