Video: Sirion Therapeutics Launches Durezol for Postoperative Ocular Inflammation and Pain
Date:10/6/2008

ol in patients diagnosed with significant postoperative inflammation (more than 10 anterior chamber cells), Durezol effectively reduced inflammation and pain. Mean intraocular pressure for all study groups remained within the normal range throughout the study. Durezol is being studied in other ocular inflammatory diseases, including a U.S. Phase 3 study evaluating Durezol for the treatment of anterior uveitis.

Dosage and Administration

The recommended dosage and administration of Durezol is to instill one drop into the conjunctival sac of the affected eye(s) 4 times daily beginning 24 hours after surgery and then continue throughout the first 2 weeks of the postoperative period, followed by 2 times daily for a week with tapering based on the response.

Important Safety Information

Durezol, like other corticosteroids, is contraindicated in patients with viral diseases of the cornea and conjunctiva, and also in fungal infections or mycobacterial infections of the eye or ocular structures. Prolonged use of corticosteroids may increase the hazard of secondary ocular infections, exacerbate the severity of ocular viral infections, and increase the development of fungal infections of the cornea. It is important to monitor intraocular pressure when using ophthalmic steroids. The use of steroids after cataract surgery may delay healing and increase the incidence of bleb formation.

Adverse reactions associated with ophthalmic steroids include elevated intraocular pressure, which may be associated with optic nerve damage, visual acuity and field defects, posterior subcapsular cataract formation, secondary ocular infection from pathogens including herpes simplex, and perforation of the globe where there is thinning of the cornea or sclera.

Ocular adverse reactions occurring in 5-15% of subjects in clinical studies with Durezol included corneal edema, ciliary and conjunctival hyperemia, eye pain, photophobia, posterior capsule opacificati
