Microplasmin - Eye Disease: Phase III clinical program to evaluate non surgical treatment of patients with vitreomacular adhesion. In January 2009, ThromboGenics announced the start of the Phase III clinical program of microplasmin for the non-surgical treatment of back of the eye disease. The Phase III program comprises two clinical trials, taking place in the United States (TG-MV-006 trial) and combined Europe and US (TG-MV-007 trial). The initial indication for both of the Phase III microplasmin trials is the non-surgical treatment of focal vitreomacular adhesion. Both of these trials will use the 125Ã¿Â¼g dose of microplasmin and include 320 patients each. Microplasmin for Vascular Disease - Encouraging Phase II results in acute ischemic stroke. In September, Professor Vincent Thijs, KULeuven, presented the results from this 40 patient study at the World Stroke Congress in Vienna, Austria. It remains ThromboGenics' intention that it will only move forward with the development of microplasmin for the treatment of stroke in conjunction with a partner.
