Envisia Therapeutics Dostes First Patient in Second Cohort of Novel Phase 2 Program Evaluating ENV515 in Patients with Glaucoma
Jan 12 16
Envisia Therapeutics announced that it has dosed its first patient in the second cohort of the phase 2 clinical program evaluating the company's lead product candidate, ENV515. ENV515 is an extended-release formulation of travoprost that could offer sustained reduction in intraocular pressure (IOP) for more than six months after a single dose. ENV515 is a fully biodegradable proprietary PRINT® nanoparticle formulation of a marketed prostaglandin analog that has the potential to lower IOP for more than 6 months from a single dose. ENV515 has the potential to address the issue of poor patient compliance that exists with daily eye drops and limit the progression of glaucoma that sometimes leads to vision loss. Envisia is also leveraging the Company's unique platform technology to develop products for other leading ocular diseases including age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic macular edema (DME), and ocular inflammation.
