During a conference call on Wednesday, June 14, 2017, management of Aldeyra Therapeutics, Inc. (Aldeyra) provided guidance regarding Aldeyras expected timing for reporting results from its Phase 2a clinical trial of topical ocular ADX-102 for the treatment of Dry Eye Disease (DED). Aldeyra expects to report results from this Phase 2a clinical trial late in the third quarter of 2017 (not early in the third quarter of 2017 as stated in the conference call).
This report contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including statements regarding when Aldeyras expects to report results from its Phase 2a DED clinical study. Such forward-looking statements are based upon current expectations that involve risks, changes in circumstances, assumptions and uncertainties. These risks are described in the Risk Factors and Managements Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations sections of Aldeyras Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, which are on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and available on the SECs website at www.sec.gov. All of Aldeyras development timelines may be subject to adjustment depending on recruitment rate, regulatory review, preclinical and clinical results, and other factors that could delay the initiation or completion of clinical trials.
In addition to the risks described above and in Aldeyras other filings with the SEC, other unknown or unpredictable factors also could affect Aldeyras results. No forward-looking statements can be guaranteed and actual results may differ materially from such statements. The information in this report is provided only as of the date of this report, and Aldeyra undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements contained in this report on account of new information, future events, or otherwise, except as required by law.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
