Heidelberg, Germany-Novaliq GmbH has announced the commencement of a phase I study for its dry eye syndrome treatment, cyclosporine solution (CyclASol), following United States and European patent approval.

While conventional cyclosporine formulations are emulsions, according to Novaliq, its drug is the first and only 0.05% clear cyclosporine solution, and is available in multi-dose and preservative-free bottles.

The drug was developed from the company’s broad range semi-fluorinated alkane drug delivery platform, EyeSol.

“We are pleased to receive the United States and European patent, and to announce the start of phase I CyclASol study,” said Bernhard Günther, chief executive officer of Novaliq. “These are both significant new milestones for Novaliq as we build our innovative drug delivery portfolio.”
