Aldeyra Therapeutics Announces Results from the SOLACE Trial in Noninfectious Anterior Uveitis

  • Statistical Significance Not Achieved for Primary or Secondary Endpoints Due to High Rates of Disease Resolution in Vehicle-Treated Patients, but Activity of Reproxalap Observed to be Consistently Greater than Vehicle
  • Noninfectious Anterior Uveitis Program to be Discontinued
  • Company Plans to Prioritize Phase 3 Ocular Pipeline Programs in Dry Eye Disease, Allergic Conjunctivitis, and Proliferative Vitreoretinopathy

LEXINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 25, 2019-- Aldeyra Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: ALDX) (Aldeyra), a biotechnology company devoted to developing and commercializing next-generation medicines to improve the lives of patients with immune-mediated diseases, today announced results from the noninfectious anterior uveitis SOLACE Trial. Statistical significance was not achieved for the primary or secondary endpoints, due to high rates of disease resolution in vehicle-treated patients, but activity of reproxalap was consistently greater than that of vehicle.

“The results of the SOLACE Trial confirm the potential of reproxalap to treat ocular inflammation, and further validate the novel mechanism of action of reproxalap, which demonstrated highly statistically significant immune-modulating activity in the Phase 3 ALLEVIATE Trial and Phase 2b Dry Eye Disease trial,” stated Todd C. Brady, M.D., Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Aldeyra. “We look forward to aggressively prioritizing advancement of high-value ocular programs in dry eye disease, allergic conjunctivitis, and proliferative vitreoretinopathy.”

Topical ocular reproxalap was observed to be safe and well-tolerated. Reproxalap ophthalmic solution, in various concentrations, has now been administered to over 800 patients in nine clinical trials for ocular inflammation.
