WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kala Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a leading developer of innovative products that rapidly and effectively penetrate the mucosal barrier to treat a wide range of debilitating diseases, announced today that it has been awarded a grant from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to demonstrate that Kala’s Mucosal-Penetrating Products (MPPs) also penetrate bacterial biofilms.
