Portola Pharmaceuticals Announces Collaboration with Ora, Inc. for Syk-Selective Inhibitor in Ophthalmic Diseases
May 5 15
Portola Pharmaceuticals announced a collaboration with Ora, Inc. for the development of Portola's highly selective Syk inhibitor, PRT2761, in ophthalmic diseases. The inhibition of Syk may more completely prevent activation of mast cells in ocular allergy and, therefore, a Syk inhibitor could represent a promising therapeutic option. This collaboration for PRT2761 is part of a strategy that allows to advance early-stage compounds outside of key focus on thrombosis and hematologic cancer with innovative companies that have the expertise and resources to develop these agents to proof-of-concept. Portola's highly specific Syk inhibitor PRT2761 has the potential to deliver rapid onset of action and comprehensive treatment of both signs and symptoms of ocular allergy, including redness, inflammation, swelling and itching.
RegeneRx's JV with G-treeBNT Retains Ora, Inc. to Conduct Phase 3 Trial for NK and Phase 2b/3 Trial for Dry Eye Syndrome
Apr 16 15
RegeneRx Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. announced its U.S. joint venture with G-treeBNT (ReGenTree LLC) has retained Ora, Inc. to conduct a phase 3 clinical trial for the orphan disorder, neurotrophic keratopathy (NK), and a 2b/3 dose-response, confirmatory trial for dry eye syndrome (DES) in the U.S. Both trials will be testing ReGenTree's preservative-free eye drops, RGN-259/GBT201, this year. Each of these eye disorders was being targeted by RegeneRx prior to entering into the joint venture. Earlier clinical trials with RGN-259 (thymosin beta 4 ophthalmic solution) have demonstrated the drug candidate's ability to significantly improve both signs and symptoms of DES and identified co-primary endpoints to be targeted in the DES trials. Results of a small physician-sponsored phase 2 clinical trial in patients with severe dry eye were recently published in Cornea (2015 May;34(5):491-496) demonstrating statistically significant improvements in patients' signs and symptoms. Positive results with RGN-259 have also been seen in patients with chronic neurotrophic keratopathy, a degenerative disease of the corneal epithelium resulting from impaired corneal innervation that may cause ulceration and perforation of the cornea.
