OMS302 will be evaluated for safety and efficacy in patients undergoing intra-ocular lens replacement surgery. The trials will enroll both cataract surgery and refractive lens exchange patients. This clinical program will involve two randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter trials. The first trial will be conducted in North America and data are expected in the first half of 2012. Omeros will initiate the second trial in Europe following discussions with regulators to ensure that data collected meet European expectations for marketing approval. The co-primary endpoints for these trials – maintenance of intraoperative pupil dilation (mydriasis) and reduction of postoperative pain – are the same as those achieved in the recently completed 221-patient Phase 2b trial.
Omeros' OMS103HP Program
OMS103HP is Omeros' PharmacoSurgery™ product candidate being developed for use during arthroscopic procedures, including partial meniscectomy surgery, and was designed to provide a multimodal approach to preemptively block the inflammatory cascade induced by arthroscopy. OMS103HP is a proprietary combination of anti-inflammatory/analgesic active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), each with well-known safety and pharmacologic profiles. Each of the APIs are components of generic, FDA-approved drugs that have been marketed in the United States as over-the-counter or prescription drug products for over 15 years and have established and well-characterized safety profiles.
In a Phase 2 clinical trial that evaluated OMS103HP in patients undergoing partial meniscectomy surgery, OMS103HP provided clinically meaningful and significantly greater efficacy than vehicle as measured by patient-reported functional scores using the Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS), passive knee flexion and visual analog scale pain scores.
