WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--OvaScienceSM (NASDAQ: OVAS), a global fertility company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of new treatment options, today reported financial results and provided a business update for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2016.

“We are entering 2017 with continued confidence in our portfolio of potentially transformative fertility treatments and a strong belief in the potential of our EggPC platform to help women and couples build the families they deserve,” said Michelle Dipp, M.D., Ph.D., Executive Chair and Co-Founder of OvaScience.

“In 2016, we achieved criteria indicative of developmental competence in EggPC cell-derived bovine and human eggs, an important step in the preclinical development of OvaTure, and we are on track to successfully fertilize a bovine EggPC cell-derived egg by year-end,” added Christophe Couturier, Chief Financial Officer. “We are also pleased to have enrolled the first 50 patients in our company-sponsored trial of OvaPrime, and to have started performing the first biopsies and reintroductions. With these milestones in hand, we remain on track to report initial data on our first 20 patients from this study by year-end. We are sufficiently funded to support the preclinical development of OvaTure and clinical development of OvaPrime into the first quarter of 2019.”
