Visiox Pharma submits NDA seeking approval for first once-daily brimonidine for glaucoma


Visiox Pharma has announced the submission of a New Drug Application to the FDA for lead product candidate, PDP-716.

Visiox Pharma this week announced the submission of a New Drug Application to the FDA for lead product candidate, PDP-716 (0.35% brimonidine tartrate), which has the potential to be the first once-daily brimonidine to enter the market for the treatment of glaucoma.

"This NDA submission marks a significant milestone for Visiox," said Ryan Bleeks, Chief Executive Officer. "We believe the patented TearAct delivery technology, which provides slow, consistent, and sustained release for IOP control throughout the day will address a significant unmet need for glaucoma patients."

The NDA submission is supported by data demonstrating IOP reduction for ocular hypertension and open angle glaucoma while maintaining an excellent safety profile.
