FREMONT, Calif., May 1, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quark Pharmaceuticals, Inc., today announced that Quark and Pfizer have amended their existing exclusive Licensing Agreement in order to enable Quark to perform a Phase 2a clinical study to assess the effect of PF-655 on visual function in patients with moderate and advanced Open-Angle Glaucoma (OAG).
