Aldeyra Therapeutics Announces First Patient Enrolled in Dry Eye Disease Phase 2b Clinical Trial
"Existing therapy for dry eye disease, a common inflammatory condition that leads to persistently disturbing ocular irritation, is generally considered by physicians and patients to be inadequate, but represents one of the largest ophthalmic markets worldwide," commented
Reproxalap and other product candidates generated from Aldeyra's aldehyde trap platform sequester and facilitate the degradation of pro-inflammatory aldehyde mediators, a class of small molecule therapeutic targets that are elevated in DED patients. The Phase 2b clinical trial will test two concentrations of topical reproxalap (0.1% and 0.25%) against vehicle over 12 weeks of treatment in 300 patients with moderate dry eye disease. Consistent with the Phase 2a clinical trial, endpoints will include standard signs and symptoms characteristic of DED.
A clinical trial synopsis can be found on clinicaltrials.gov (#NCT03404115).
