Overview This product is a multikinase inhibitor that inhibits various kinds of protein kinases, including leucine-rich repeat kinase (LRRK),and is suggested to stimulate the drainage of aqueous humor from the main outflow tract via the trabecular meshwork and Schlemm’s canal, thus lowering intraocular pressure. The long-term persistence of this potent intraocular pressure-lowering effect has been demonstrated in animal studies.
