|Abstract:||Latanoprost, a prostaglandin F2α analog prodrug, and unoprostone, an analog of a prostaglandin metabolite, have been shown to be effective in decreasing intraocular pressure when used alone or in combination with other ocular hypotensive agents. The increase in the uveoscleral outflow and some of the side effects are probably FP-receptor mediated, which may account for some differences between the cited drugs. This article reviews the recent literature available on the clinical efficacy of these prostanoids, as well as the studies directly comparing these drugs. © 2002 Elsevier Science Inc.
