CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Eleven Biotherapeutics (NASDAQ: EBIO), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company discovering and developing protein therapeutics to treat diseases of the eye, today announced that patient randomization and dosing are underway in the Company’s first pivotal Phase 3 clinical study of EBI-005 for the treatment of moderate to severe dry eye disease (DED), the OASIS study (A Multi-Center, Double-Masked, Randomized, Controlled, Efficacy and Safety Study of EBI-005 5 mg/mL Topical Ophthalmic Solution Versus Vehicle Control In Subjects With Moderate to Severe Dry Eye Disease). EBI-005, the Company’s most advanced product candidate generated using its AMP-Rx platform, is a novel, topically administered Interleukin-1 (IL-1) receptor blocker currently in development for the treatment of dry eye disease and allergic conjunctivitis. EBI-005 was designed to bind and block the IL-1 receptor to prevent transmission of biological signals responsible for many of the signs and symptoms of ocular surface diseases.
