  1. First Clinical Trial to Assess a Single OTX-TKI Implant Containing a 600ug Dose

    Ocular Therapeutix, Inc. (NASDAQ:OCUL), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the formulation, development, and commercialization of innovative therapies for diseases and conditions of the eye, today announced that it has dosed the first patient in the United States Phase 1 clinical trial of OTX-TKI (axitinib intravitreal implant) for the treatment of wet age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD).

    "We are very excited to have recently begun dosing patients in this U.S. trial," said Michael Goldstein, MD, MBA, President, Ophthalmology and Chief Medical Officer of Ocular Therapeutix. "The start of this trial is significant as this will be the first clinical trial…

    First Clinical Trial to Assess a Single OTX-TKI Implant Containing a 600ug Dose

    Ocular Therapeutix, Inc. (NASDAQ:OCUL), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the formulation, development, and commercialization of innovative therapies for diseases and conditions of the eye, today announced that it has dosed the first patient in the United States Phase 1 clinical trial of OTX-TKI (axitinib intravitreal implant) for the treatment of wet age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD).

    "We are very excited to have recently begun dosing patients in this U.S. trial," said Michael Goldstein, MD, MBA, President, Ophthalmology and Chief Medical Officer of Ocular Therapeutix. "The start of this trial is significant as this will be the first clinical trial that will dose subjects with our single, higher dose, 600 µg implant. While current anti-VEGF treatments are effective, their durability is limited. OTX-TKI has the potential to be a new sustained release administration with 6 months or longer durability and a new mechanism of action for the treatment of patients with wet AMD and other retinal diseases. Based on early data from our Australian Phase 1 clinical trial, OTX-TKI has initially demonstrated acceptable tolerability, preliminary biological activity in some patients and durability for up to six months or longer in some cases."

    The Phase 1 clinical trial in the U.S. is a prospective, randomized, controlled, multi-center trial evaluating a single OTX-TKI implant containing a 600 µg dose of axitinib, compared with a 2 mg dose of aflibercept administered every eight weeks in subjects previously treated with anti-VEGF therapy. This trial is designed to assess the safety, tolerability, and biological activity of OTX-TKI for the treatment of wet AMD. The U.S.-based clinical trial of OTX-TKI is being conducted under an exploratory IND (eIND) application at five sites with a total of 20 randomized subjects: 15 subjects being treated with a single OTX-TKI implant containing 600 µg dose of axitinib in combination with an anti-VEGF induction injection, and 5 subjects being treated at eight-week intervals with a dose of aflibercept.

    About Age-Related Macular Degeneration

    AMD, a progressive retinal disease that is the leading cause of blindness in adults over the age of 60, is estimated to affect approximately 11 to 15 million people in the U.S. AMD affects the center portion of the retina, called the macula, which is responsible for central vision and color perception. There are two forms of AMD; the dry form, which affects between 85-90% of patients, and the wet form, an aggressive form of AMD which affects the remaining 10-15% of patients. In patients with wet AMD, abnormal blood vessels grow underneath and into the retina. These abnormal blood vessels leak fluid and blood into and beneath the retina, causing vision loss.

    Company Anticipates Record Quarter for In-Market DEXTENZA Sales

    Second Quarter 2021 Net Product Revenue Up Approximately 60% and In-Market Unit Volumes Up Approximately 50% Sequentially Over the First Quarter of 2021

    Ocular Therapeutix, Inc. (NASDAQ:OCUL), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the formulation, development, and commercialization of innovative therapies for diseases and conditions of the eye, today reported preliminary net product revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, and in-market unit sales for June 2021.

    The Company is reporting preliminary second quarter 2021 total net product revenue of approximately $11.7 million, representing a greater than 600% year-over-year increase versus the second quarter 2020 and an approximately 60% sequential increase over the first quarter of 2021. Net product revenue of DEXTENZA® (dexamethasone ophthalmic insert) 0.4mg for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 is estimated to be $11.1 million, and net product revenue of ReSure® Sealant for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 is estimated to be $0.6 million.

    DEXTENZA second quarter, in-market unit sales are projected to set a record of 24,990 billable inserts, an approximately 50% sequential increase over the first quarter of 2021. The Company believes this growth reflects the strong end-user demand for DEXTENZA driven by an increase in cataract procedure volumes and market share gains. June 2021 in-market unit sales are projected to set a monthly record of 9,779 billable inserts as cataract volumes continued to increase through the second quarter of 2021 after the slowing of procedures earlier in the year as a result of regional COVID surges. As previously reported, April and May in-market unit sales were 8,025 and 7,186 billable inserts, respectively. Notably, each month of the second quarter of 2021 exceeded the last month of the first quarter of 2021, which included increased end-of-the-quarter in-market unit sales to ambulatory surgical centers under the Company's rebate program.

    "We are pleased by DEXTENZA's performance in the quarter and believe that continued physician interest and more normalized cataract procedure volumes bode well for strong growth through the remainder of the year," said Antony Mattessich, President and CEO. "What gives us the greatest satisfaction however is knowing that more and more patients are enjoying a better experience following their ophthalmic surgeries."

    The Company expects to report quarterly financial results for the second quarter 2021 on August 9th following the close of market and provide a comprehensive business update on a conference call the same day.

    Ocular Therapeutix, Inc. (NASDAQ:OCUL), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the formulation, development, and commercialization of innovative therapies for diseases and conditions of the eye, entered into a discovery collaboration with Mosaic Biosciences to identify new targets and therapeutic agents aimed at the treatment of Dry Age-related Macular Degeneration (dAMD).

    Under terms of the agreement, the collaboration between Ocular Therapeutix and Mosaic focuses on the discovery and development of novel complement inhibitors with extended duration of activity. The complement pathway represents a key component of innate immunity and maintains immune homeostasis throughout the body, including ocular tissues. Within the retina, the complement pathway has been associated with the development of age-related macular degeneration. The goal of complement inhibition is to block the pathway that can initiate and drive these diseases.

    "This agreement with Mosaic Biosciences marks an important step forward for our company and how we approach the discovery and development of ophthalmic products," said Antony Mattessich, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ocular Therapeutix. "Historically, our products have been developed by combining a known active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) with our proprietary hydrogel technology to create innovate treatments for diseases of the eye. However, certain diseases are very challenging to treat with existing agents. Working with Mosaic, we hope to incorporate the discovery of new chemical entities into our current drug development approach and to identify novel, sustained release products to expand our innovative ophthalmic portfolio."

    "We are pleased to begin working with Ocular, one of the leading ophthalmology companies in the industry," commented Eric Furfine, Co-Chief Executive Officer and Chief Scientific Officer of Mosaic Biosciences. "At Mosaic we are focused on leveraging our expertise in research and proprietary protein engineering to discover novel compounds. Based on our extensive working knowledge of the complement pathway, along with Ocular's expertise in sustained release technology, we look forward to discovering and developing novel compounds to treat a debilitating disease like dAMD."

    Under the terms of the agreement, Ocular Therapeutix has agreed to fund the research performed under the collaboration and retains all program inventions and associated intellectual property.

    About Age-Related Macular Degeneration

    AMD, a progressive retinal disease that is the leading cause of blindness in adults over the age of 60, is estimated to affect approximately 11 to 15 million people in the U.S. AMD affects the center portion of the retina, called the macula, which is responsible for central vision and color perception. There are two forms of AMD; the dry form which affects between 85-90% of patients and the wet form which affects the remaining 10-15% of patients. The dry form of AMD features slowly progressive, degenerative changes in the retinal pigment epithelial cells, Bruch's membrane, and the choroid (the area beneath the retina) that over time leads to a thinning of the macula, causing the macula to lose its function. As dry AMD progresses, it leads to an irreversible degeneration of retinal cells that results in permanent loss of vision. The disease and resulting vision loss is a major contributor to loss of independence and diminished quality of life in older persons. Although there are FDA-approved treatments for wet AMD, there are no treatments currently approved by the FDA for the dry form of AMD.
