  • It is estimated that Africa has the highest prevalence (4.79%), while Europe and Oceania have the lowest prevalence (2.93% and 2.97%, respectively).
  • Most approved drugs in the glaucoma field target beta adrenergic receptors or prostaglandin F receptors. Almost all of these approved drugs are administered via topical routes, and the rest are intraocular/subretinal/subconjunctival or oral formulations.
  • In the active clinical development of glaucoma, the highest proportion of industry-sponsored drugs is in phase II, and only one drug is in the NDA/BLA phase.
  • Although a few mid- to late-stage drugs in the field of glaucoma are exploring new targets, the established target prostaglandin F receptor continues to lead clinical development. The most common drugs in the development of glaucoma are administered via intraocular/subretinal/subconjunctival routes.
  • The high-impact events of glaucoma drugs include the top-line phase II test results of GAL-101, the top-line phase III test results of NCX 470, and the expected PDUFA date of DE-117.
  • The overall probability of approving stage I glaucoma/ocular hypertension (ophthalmology) assets is 4.9%, and the average probability of drug progression from stage III is 57.1%. It takes an average of 8.8 years for the drug from the first stage to approval, while it takes 8.9 years for the entire ophthalmology field.
  • The distribution of phase I-IV clinical trials indicates that most glaucoma trials are in the late stages of development, with 59% of trials in phase III-IV and 41% of trials in phase I-II.
  • The United States is a leader in the number of global glaucoma clinical trials. Germany leads the major European markets, while Japan tops the list in Asia.
