A Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability and Preliminary Efficacy of APP13007 to Treat Inflammation and Pain After Cataract Surgery

2019-09-19 03:56:41 | BioPortfolio


This is a Phase 2a, 2-part study (designated Parts A and B) that will evaluate APP13007 dose strength and dosing frequency in a randomized double-masked fashion for comparison to the respective matching vehicle placebo. Part A will be conducted first to evaluate 0.05% APP13007 and matching vehicle placebo in an approximate 1:1 ratio in approximately 42 subjects who experience postoperative inflammation on the first day following routine, uncomplicated, cataract surgery and who meet all eligibility criteria. Based on the results of Part A, Part B of the study may be open for enrollment to evaluate 0.05% and/or 0.1% APP13007 at various dosing frequency in approximately 84 subjects, also in an approximate 1:1 ratio, active vs. placebo. In each Part, subjects will return periodically for study assessments during the treatment period and then for a follow-up visit approximately 2 weeks after stopping the study drug.
