NCX 470 is a novel nitric oxide (NO)-donating bimatoprost currently in Phase 3 clinical development for the reduction of intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. The first randomized, double-masked, multi-center, parallel group trial conducted in the United States (Mont Blanc) comparing NCX 470 (0.1%) to latanoprost (0.005%) was completed in October 2022. The second Phase 3 trial Denali, similarly designed to Mont Blanc, and which includes a long-term safety extension, is ongoing.
NCX 1728 is an NO-donating phosphodiasterase type-5 (PDE5) inhibitor under preclinical evaluation for development in retinal conditions.
