Novaliq to present at the Ophthalmology Futures Forum on how to break the vicious circle of Dry Eye Disease

Heidelberg, Germany – Sep 19, 2018 – Novaliq will present at the upcoming Ophthalmology Futures Forums in Vienna.
The Ophthalmology Futures Forums were established in 2012 to fill a void with regard to industry – investor meetings specifically for ophthalmology in Europe and Asia. The Forums focus on all aspects of global innovation in ophthalmology by connecting scientists, physicians, regulators, corporate leaders, venture capitalists and other investors who support the advancement of eye care.

In Europe, Dry Eye Disease (DED) has a prevalence of 8-17%. In the top five European countries (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK) more than 25 million people have symptoms of dry eyes and 18 million have been diagnosed with DED – yet only 3 million patients have been treated(1).
Current treatment options for patients in Europe are limited; so far only one drug was approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for the treatment of severe keratitis in adults with DED. First choice in Europe remain artificial tears and eye lubricants. Outside Europe only few products are approved for the treatment of DED in US or Japan.
Dry eye has an effect on the quality of life and affects people from all walks of life. At a minimum, dry eye causes discomfort, but it can also cause disabling pain and vision disturbance. Recent publications highlight the correlation of dry eye and reading impairment (2,3). New advances for this disease and genuine treatment options are clearly needed to break the vicious circle of Dry Eye Disease.

With a portfolio of best- and first-in-class products and two global clinical programs for CyclASol® and NOV03, Novaliq takes on the challenge to break the vicious circle of Dry Eye Disease. Results of the global clinical programs are expected to be communicated in October.

Dry Eye Disease causes more than discomfort, since visual function can be impacted as well. Current treatment options for Dry Eye Disease leave too many patients untreated and unsatisfied,” said Christian Roesky, CEO of Novaliq GmbH. “With our drugs in late-stage clinical development, we will redefine how DED is treated.
Christian Roesky will speak at the Ophthalmology Futures Forums, September 20th, 2018 in Vienna, Austria. For further information, please send an email to event@novaliq.com.
