Omeros Announces Submission to European Medicines Agency of Paediatric Investigation Plan Letter of Intent for OMS302
Date:11/29/2011

SEATTLE, Nov. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Omeros Corporation (NASDAQ: OMER) today announced that it has submitted to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) a letter of intent to file its Paediatric Investigation Plan (PIP) for OMS302, the Company's product candidate for use during intra-ocular lens replacement surgery. A PIP is part of the EMA approval process and must be agreed prior to submission of a Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) for the drug in the European Union, unless the requirement is waived. A PIP describes how a company intends to evaluate the use of a given drug in children. Completion of studies outlined in the PIP prior to EU approval is not a requirement for MAA submission.

OMS302 is being evaluated in a Phase 3 clinical program enrolling both cataract surgery and refractive lens exchange patients.  The drug is added to standard irrigation solution used during cataract and other lens replacement surgery to maintain intraoperative mydriasis (pupil dilation) and reduce postoperative pain. Two randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter trials are planned. The first trial is underway in North America, and data are expected in the first quarter of 2012.  Omeros plans to initiate the second trial 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. In that study, OMS302 was significantly superior to vehicle both in reducing postoperative pain and maintaining mydriasis.

"We remain on track to announce data from the initial Phase 3 trial of OMS302 in the first quarter of 2012," said Gregory A. Demopulos, M.D., chairman and chief executive officer of Omeros. "While that trial advances, we are in discussions with regulators in the United States and Europe so that we will be poised to file marketing applications as soon as possible following receipt of data, should they be positive."

Omeros' OMS302 Program

OMS302 is Omeros' PharmacoSurgery™ product candidate being developed for use during ophthalmological procedures including cataract and other lens replacement surgery. OMS302 is a proprietary combination of an anti-inflammatory active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) and an API that causes mydriasis (pupil dilation), each with well-known safety and pharmacologic profiles. FDA-approved drugs containing each of these APIs have been used in ophthalmological clinical practice for more than 15 years, and both APIs are contained in generic, FDA-approved drugs.

In a 221-subject Phase 2b clinical trial that evaluated OMS302 in patients undergoing cataract surgery, OMS302 demonstrated clinically meaningful and statistically significant benefits in both prespecified co-primary endpoints – maintenance of intraoperative mydriasis and reduction of pain in the early postoperative period. Also, fewer OMS302-treated subjects reported moderate and severe postoperative pain. In that study, OMS302 was safe and well tolerated without evidence of drug-related adverse events.
