PGF isopropyl ester is an ester prodrug of PGF with enhanced lipid solubility. Due to better membrane penetration, PGF isopropyl ester is more suitable than PGF or PGF tromethamine salt for topical application in studies on intraocular pressure. The ester functionality is readily hydrolyzed in vivo to release the active compound PGF. When administered topically to the eyes of cynomolgus monkeys, a 5 µg dose reduces intraocular pressure by 68% after the fourth day of treatment.1
