ABIONYX Pharma Initiates Discussions With IRIS Pharma, a World Leader in Preclinical and Clinical Ophthalmology Research, With a View to a Possible Strategic Deal
ABIONYX Pharma (Paris:ABNX) (FR0012616852 - ABNX - PEA PME eligible), a next-generation biotech company dedicated to the discovery and development of innovative therapies, announced today that it is initiating discussions with IRIS Pharma, a world leader in preclinical and clinical ophthalmology contract research, with a view to a possible strategic deal, in which IRIS Pharma's contract research business would remain separate from the biotech research and development activity and to continue to grow.
These exchanges follow the positive clinical results which led to the disappearance of visual blur related to corneal deposits in a patient suffering from LCAT activity deficiency within the framework of a Temporary Use Authorization, and the initial preclinical results in uveitis that indicate the major therapeutic potential of bio-HDL in ophthalmology, and more broadly the role of lipids in ocular pathologies.
