Coronado Industries is pressing ahead with efforts to gather data to support a US marketing application for its non-invasive pneumatic device for treating glaucoma, after receiving FDA approval for its study protocol.

The Fountain Hills, Arizona firm says it is working with Novartis on an agreement covering exclusive global licensing and distribution rights to the product.
