About the Retinal and Optic Nerve Disease Clinical Programs
To date, all glaucoma treatments are aimed at lowering intraocular hypertension. Noveome’s multi-target platform biologic and lead product, ST266, is the first potential therapeutic focused on treating the underlying nerve degeneration that occurs in glaucoma through an innovative, non-invasive, targeted intranasal device to deliver ST266 directly to the retina and optic nerve by-passing the blood-brain barrier. Based on successful preclinical studies, Noveome is currently conducting a Phase 1 open-label clinical trial to establish the safety of ST266 by intranasal delivery with topline data expected in 2020.
