      The patent was filed 15 years ago. It's probably why they claim it is indicated for ophtalmic diseases. Now we know more about the side effects.

      Interesting; GSK files patent claiming RTG as tinnitus treatment candidate? Doesn't this fly in the face of previous statements to the effect that they were not interested in pursuing RTG as a tinnitus treatment?

      edit: ah. I didn't realize this was 15 years old. NM.
