BEDFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ocular Therapeutix, Inc. (NASDAQ:OCUL), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of innovative therapies for diseases and conditions of the eye, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016 and provided a general business update.
“Following productive discussions with the FDA, we are preparing for the resubmission of our NDA for DEXTENZA™ for post-surgical ocular pain by the end of the year,” said Amar Sawhney, Ph.D., President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman. “We are also pleased to have commenced patient enrollment in our first Phase 3 clinical trial with OTX-TP for the treatment of glaucoma and ocular hypertension. We believe that this is the first Phase 3 clinical trial to be conducted with a non-invasive, sustained release drug candidate for the treatment of glaucoma, and our goal is to address the major issue of low patient compliance rates associated with currently approved topical therapies. Further, we are excited to have entered into a strategic collaboration with Regeneron to develop a potential first-in-class sustained release protein-based anti-VEGF hydrogel injection for the treatment of wet AMD and other serious retinal diseases.”
