Ocular Therapeutix™ Announces Topline Phase 1 Clinical Trial Results of OTX-CSI
Excerpt from the Press Release:
BEDFORD, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ocular Therapeutix™, Inc. (NASDAQ: OCUL), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the formulation, development, and commercialization of innovative therapies for diseases and conditions of the eye, today announced topline Phase 1 clinical trial results of OTX-CSI (cyclosporine intracanalicular insert) for the treatment of dry eye disease (DED).
“The results of the Phase 1 clinical trial provide an early look at the safety, tolerability, durability, and potential biological activity of OTX-CSI,” said Michael Goldstein, MD, MBA, Chief Medical Officer. “While the study enrolled a small number of subjects and was open-label, the results seen thus far are very encouraging. Our novel intracanalicular insert delivered a consistent dose of cyclosporine without preservatives over approximately 12 weeks, in a manner we believe to be both less irritating to the ocular surface and also faster acting than current standard of care eye drop therapies. We believe that if approved by the FDA, OTX-CSI has the potential to become a highly differentiated treatment that would provide significant benefit to patients with dry eye disease and allow them a hands-free alternative to current therapies.”
