Surface Ophthalmics Previews Important Clinical Progress in 2021
PLEASANTON, Calif., Jan. 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Surface Ophthalmics, Inc., a pharmaceutical company focused on development and commercialization of innovative therapeutics for ocular diseases, is preparing for an exciting year of clinical milestones in 2021.
With a commitment to providing innovative solutions that address key patient needs in the ocular space, Surface Ophthalmics is currently advancing three unique clinical programs, all of which will reach key development milestones in 2021.
SURF-201 (betamethasone 0.2% in Klarity®) is being studied for the treatment of pain and inflammation following ocular surgery. Results from the Phase II trial for SURF-201 are expected in the early part of 2021.
The two remaining clinical programs, SURF-100 (Mycophenolate sodium 0.3% + betamethasone 0.01% in Klarity) for the treatment of chronic dry eye disease and SURF-200 (betamethasone 0.02% in Klarity) for the treatment of episodic dry eye disease, will both be entering Phase II trials in 2021 with anticipated first doses administered in the first quarter.
Across all three programs, Surface utilizes key fundamental elements, or building blocks, to create therapeutics that are intended to relieve pain, inflammation and irritation while protecting the ocular surface. These building blocks include: the patented Klarity vehicle; betamethasone, a corticosteroid with a long track record in global use but making its debut in the ocular space in the United States; and, mycophenolate sodium, an immune suppressant which works synergistically with the corticosteroid. In addition, all of Surface's therapies are unit-dose and preservative-free, further enhancing protection of the ocular surface.
"We believe that the building blocks of our therapies will provide safe and effective treatment options for patients that, most importantly, support a healthy ocular surface and a positive experience for patients," said Kamran Hosseini, MD, PhD, President and CEO, Surface Ophthalmics. "We're proud to be the only company currently working on therapies to treat the full spectrum of dry eye disease and are committed to working to provide these patients with innovative solutions to their needs."
