Efficacy and Tolerance of Metipranolol — Results of a Multi-center Long-term Study

Conference paper


After the efficacy of metripranolol was clinically established for the first time by Merté et al. [4], the question was brought up as to whether a pressure-reducing action similar to other β-blockers might also be observed over a prolonged period and whether metipranolol might, in consequence, prove to be suitable as a reliable pressure-reducing drug for the long-term treatment of open angle glaucoma.
