NDA presented to the FDA for reproxalap for the treatment of signs and symptoms of dry eye disease
Aldeyra Therapeutics, Inc. announced the submission of a New Drug Application (NDA) to the FDA for topical ocular reproxalap, an investigational new drug candidate, for the treatment of signs and symptoms of dry eye disease
The NDA submission is supported by safety and efficacy data from five adequate and well-controlled clinical trials encompassing data for ocular dryness symptom score, ocular redness, Schirmer test, and Schirmer test greater than 10 mm responder analysis. The regulatory package includes activity ranging from within minutes of drug administration to up to 12 weeks of treatment, crossover and parallel-group clinical trial designs, and assessment in dry eye chamber challenge and natural environment settings. Topical ocular reproxalap has been studied in more than 2,000 patients with no observed clinically significant safety concerns; mild and transient instillation site irritation is the most commonly reported adverse event in clinical trials.
