Okogen, Inc. Secures Ora, Inc. to Conduct Clinical and Regulatory Development of OKG-0301 for Adenoviral Conjunctivitis

Okogen, Inc. has secured Ora, Inc. to conduct the clinical studies and lead the regulatory strategy of OKG-0301 for the treatment of adenoviral conjunctivitis. OKG-0301, Okogen's lead candidate, is an ophthalmic formulation of a potent ribonuclease with broad-spectrum antiviral properties. Adenoviral conjunctivitis is the primary cause of eye infections globally, lasting typically 2-3 weeks. In a clinically predictive rabbit model of adenoviral conjunctivitis, OKG-0301 significantly reduced viral titers of infected eyes in addition to shortening the duration of viral shedding compared to controls.
