From Our Partners
Their MPPs are selectively-sized nanoparticles and have proprietary coatings. They believe that these two key attributes enable even distribution of drug particles on mucosal surfaces and significantly increase drug delivery to target tissues by enhancing mobility of drug particles through mucus and preventing drug particles from becoming trapped and eliminated by mucus.
They have completed two Phase 3 clinical trials of KPI-121 1.0%, their topical twice-a-day product candidate for patients with inflammation and pain following cataract surgery.
Based on the results of their two completed Phase 3 trials of KPI-121 1.0%, they anticipate submitting an NDA for the approval of KPI-121 1.0% for the treatment of post-operative inflammation and pain following ocular surgery by the end of 2017. If approved, KPI-121 1.0% could be the first FDA-approved ocular corticosteroid product for the treatment of post-operative inflammation and pain with twice daily dosing.
Assuming positive results from their Phase 3 clinical trials, they anticipate submitting an NDA for KPI-121 0.25% for the temporary relief of the signs and symptoms of dry eye disease in the first half of 2018. If approved, KPI-121 0.25% could be the first FDA-approved product for the short-term treatment of dry eye disease.
