NEW YORK, Nov. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eyenovia, Inc.

Q3 2018 and Recent Business Highlights

  • Received investigational new drug (IND) acceptance to enter Phase III with MicroStat for mydriasis
  • Results from PG21 study demonstrating a robust IOP lowering effect from a microdosed prostaglandin and high ocular delivery success rate have been accepted in the peer-reviewed journal Clinical Ophthalmology and are currently In Press
  • Submitted Optejet™ as the trademark for the Company’s proprietary container closure system 

Dr. Sean Ianchulev, Eyenovia’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Medical Officer commented, “With the acceptance of our IND application for MicroStat for mydriasis, we expect to initiate our first Phase III study this month, followed by two additional Phase III studies for myopia progression and chronic angle closer glaucoma over the next nine months. As we seek to further support these upcoming trials, our PG21 study demonstrated superior patient self-administration of 90 percent and similar intra ocular pressure lowering efficacy compared to traditional eyedrops and was recently selected for publication by Clinical Ophthalmology. We look forward to continuing to develop and validate our proprietary, high precision microdosing technology platform, and are very pleased to officially brand our technology, the Optejet.”
