OCS-01 in Treating Inflammation and Pain in Post-cataract Patients

2019-10-24 12:49:55 | BioPortfolio


The DX-216 trial is a randomized, double-masked, placebo (vehicle)-controlled study evaluating the efficacy and safety of two doses of OCS-01 compared to vehicle in the treatment of inflammation and pain following cataract surgery. The primary objective is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of OCS-01 compared to placebo and the secondary objective is to evaluate the optimal dosing frequency (once a day [QD] or twice a day [BID]).


This is a multi-center, randomized, double-masked, placebo (vehicle)-controlled study, designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of OCS-01 ophthalmic suspension (QD versus BID) compared to placebo in treating inflammation and pain following cataract surgery. Subjects will be randomized 1:1:1 to receive OCS-01 QD, OCS-01 BID, or placebo BID. Subjects will dose 1 drop in the study eye BID for 14 days, beginning 1 day post-surgery in the operated eye. The study will last up to 24 days, including a follow-up visit at Visit 7 (Day 22 ± 2).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The transparent anterior portion of the fibrous coat of the eye consisting of five layers: stratified squamous CORNEAL EPITHELIUM; BOWMAN MEMBRANE; CORNEAL STROMA; DESCEMET MEMBRANE; and mesenchymal CORNEAL ENDOTHELIUM. It serves as the first refracting medium of the eye. It is structurally continuous with the SCLERA, avascular, receiving its nourishment by permeation through spaces between the lamellae, and is innervated by the ophthalmic division of the TRIGEMINAL NERVE via the ciliary nerves and those of the surrounding conjunctiva which together form plexuses. (Cline et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)

Derivative of beta-cyclodextrin that is used as an excipient for steroid drugs and as a lipid chelator.

New blood vessels originating from the corneal veins and extending from the limbus into the adjacent CORNEAL STROMA. Neovascularization in the superficial and/or deep corneal stroma is a sequel to numerous inflammatory diseases of the ocular anterior segment, such as TRACHOMA, viral interstitial KERATITIS, microbial KERATOCONJUNCTIVITIS, and the immune response elicited by CORNEAL TRANSPLANTATION.

The measurement of curvature and shape of the anterior surface of the cornea using techniques such as keratometry, keratoscopy, photokeratoscopy, profile photography, computer-assisted image processing and videokeratography. This measurement is often applied in the fitting of contact lenses and in diagnosing corneal diseases or corneal changes including keratoconus, which occur after keratotomy and keratoplasty.

Fibroblasts which occur in the CORNEAL STROMA.
