Oculis announces that it will present results from its phase 2 (SKYGGN) clinical trial, evaluating the efficacy and safety of its drug candidate OCS-01 for the treatment of inflammation and pain following cataract surgery, at the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) annual meeting, which will be held online on May 16-17, 2020.

“We look forward to the upcoming presentation of the SKYGGN results, a trial evaluating OCS-01 as a potential new treatment option for inflammation and pain in patients who have undergone cataract surgery,” Riad Sherif, MD, Chief Executive Officer of Oculis, said in a company news release. “This is the second randomized phase 2 trial that we have completed in the last 12 months with OCS-01, a novel eye drop formulation of dexamethasone using SNP, Oculis proprietary nanoparticle formulation technology, and follows the positive results presented earlier this year in patients with diabetic macular edema.”
