ForSight VISION5 Announces Completion of Enrollment of Phase 2 Dose-Ranging Study
Jun 11 15
ForSight VISION5 announced the completion of enrollment of 121 subjects in its Phase 2 dose-ranging study, and presentation of Phase 1b data at the World Glaucoma Congress in Hong Kong. The presented data demonstrated that a single administration of its investigational HeliosTM bimatoprost ocular insert provided sustained reduction in intraocular pressure (IOP) for six months. ForSight VISION5 is developing non-invasive ophthalmic products that are designed to replace eye drops and provide sustained therapy for major eye diseases including glaucoma, dry eye, and allergy. The Phase 1b data were collected from a multicenter, prospective, single-arm, open-label, pooled analysis of the bimatoprost ocular insert. The data were presented by Prof. Ivan Goldberg, principal investigator of the Australian study. In this analysis of 27 subjects who met eligibility criteria, mean diurnal IOP at washout was 23.9 mmHg and a mean sustained diurnal IOP reduction of 4.7-6.5 mmHg was observed for 6 months. There were no reported serious or unexpected ocular adverse events. The company continues to advance the clinical development of the Helios insert. The Phase 2 dose-ranging study (FSV5-004) is a prospective, randomized, double-masked, controlled study designed to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and dose-response of two loading doses of the bimatoprost ocular insert compared to a control arm in subjects with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. The study enrolled 121 subjects at ten clinical sites in the USA in under nine weeks.
