6:31AM ISTA Pharm's REMURA was highly effective but not statistically significantly better than placebo; PROLENSA statistically significant (ISTA) 3.79 : Co announced top-line results from the second of its two Phase 3 studies to evaluate the short-term safety and efficacy of two concentrations of REMURA in alleviating the signs and symptoms of dry eye disease. In the EAST study, REMURA was highly effective in treating a sign and symptom of dry eye but was not statistically significantly better than placebo in the entire patient cohort, a common outcome reported in studies testing other dry eye therapies. In both Phase 3 studies, safety data demonstrated REMURA was well-tolerated, with an adverse event profile similar to placebo. Co also announced statistically significant results from the Phase 3 clinical program for PROLENSA. In both Phase 3 studies, PROLENSA was statistically significantly better than placebo and met the primary efficacy endpoint of absence of ocular inflammation 14 days following surgery and the secondary efficacy endpoint of elimination of ocular pain one day post-surgery. There were no serious drug-related ocular or systemic adverse events.
