NEPATOP™ contains Nepafenac 0.1% in an advanced 4th Generation Ophthalmic Suspension.
NEPATOP™ is a sterile, topical, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) prodrug for ophthalmic use.
NEPATOP™ contains nepafenac (0.1%), a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and analgesic prodrug. After topical ocular dosing, nepafenac penetrates the cornea and is converted by ocular tissue hydrolases to amfenac, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug. Amfenac is thought to inhibit the action of prostaglandin H synthase (cyclooxygenase), an enzyme required for prostaglandin production.
