Eyenovia Announces Poster Presentation at ARVO 2023

NEW YORK, April 24, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eyenovia, Inc. (NASDAQ: EYEN), a pre-commercial ophthalmic technology company developing the Optejet® delivery system for use both in connection with its own drug-device therapeutic programs for mydriasis, presbyopia and pediatric progressive myopia as well as out-licensing for additional indications, today announced a poster presentation at the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) 2023 annual meeting, which is being held April 23-27 in New Orleans.

“This important study confirms that our proprietary Optejet dispensing technology can achieve a therapeutic dose of the anti-glaucoma medication latanoprost with significantly less exposure to excess drug and harmful preservatives than can be achieved using conventional eye drops,” stated Michael Rowe, chief executive officer of Eyenovia. “We are fast approaching the May 8th PDUFA date for our most advanced clinical program, the mydriasis agent Mydcombi, which, if approved, would be the first FDA approved product using the Optejet and would provide critical validation of this technology. We believe the Optejet can be leveraged across a broad range of high-value ophthalmic indications, many of which we plan to explore in the future through both internal development programs and external collaborations.”

Presentation details:

Title: Cytotoxicity Evaluation for BAK-Preserved Latanoprost Delivered by Drop Versus Micro-Array Print (MAP) Technology
Presenters: Pedram Hamrah, MD, and Deshea Harris, MSc, Tufts Medical Center, Boston
Date: April 25th, 2023
Time: 11:45 a.m.1:30 p.m. CDT (12:45 p.m.2:30 p.m. EDT)
Location: Exhibit Hall
Posterboard #: B0374

Summary: Treatment with the anti-glaucoma medication Latanoprost that is preserved with benzalkonium chloride (BAK) over a long period of time has consistently demonstrated cytotoxic effects. This poster describes results of a study evaluating BAK-preserved latanoprost delivered via conventional eye dropper versus Eyenovia’s proprietary Micro-Array Print (MAP) technology.

This study found that Optejet using MAP technology has the potential to reduce ocular surface stress when administering BAK+ latanoprost. Excellent human conjunctival cell tolerability was observed and was comparable to preservative-free latanoprost. Significantly less cell toxicity, significantly lower RNA levels of proinflammatory chemokine IL-6 and CCL2, and significantly lower protein levels of proinflammatory cytokine IL-6 were observed.

Conclusion: MAP technology appears better in reducing inflammatory processes than BAK+ latanoprost administered with traditional eye drops. In conclusion, precision dosing has the potential to decrease ocular surface disorders typically associated with long-term use of preserved eye drops.
