Novaliq named Finalist in “Clinical Trial Result of the Year” category of the LifeStars Awards 2019

Heidelberg, Germany – September 10, 2019 – Novaliq is pleased to announce that it has been recognised in the finalist roster of the Clinical Trial of the Year at the 2019 Lifestars AwardsTM.

Lifestars is a celebration of the success stories, innovations, transformational deals and the people, teams and organisations that play such a critical role in the advancement of the industry over the last 12 months across Europe and the US.

In 2018, Novaliq conducted SEECASE-1, a phase 2, multi-center, randomized, double-masked, comparator-controlled clinical trial (NCT03333057) which was designed to evaluate the effects of NOV03 at two different dosing regimens on signs and symptoms of DED.

NOV03 (100% perfluorohexyloctane) stabilizes the lipid layer of the tear film for hours, thereby preventing excessive tear evaporation. Furthermore, NOV03 uniquely penetrates Meibomian glands and potentially dissolve thickened Meibum, thereby improving Meibomian gland function and quality. Patients enrolled were suffering from DED due to significant MGD presence – a very symptomatic and highly underserved population.

In SEECASE-1, NOV03 showed unprecedented sign and symptom improvements for DED patients while offering an excellent safety and tolerability profile; the new mode of action of NOV03 addresses the underlying causes of evaporative DED associated with MGD, thereby treating signs and symptoms of the diseases in a highly effective way.

The international awards brings together hundreds of global life science leaders, investors and deal makers and key stakeholders from the wider eco-system to recognise the achievements of the industry. 17 awards will be contested during a prestigious gala dinner hosted at the Honourable Artillery Company in London, UK on the 19thNovember. The Awards will support Teenage Cancer Trust as the official Charity beneficiary.

“We are pleased being nominated by LSX for a Lifestars Award for our NOV03 Clinical trial showing significant benefits for patients with dry eye disease which is associated with meibomian gland dysfunction.” Sonja Krösser, PhD, VP Preclinical and Clinical Development, Novaliq GmbH.

“Lifestars presents a fantastic opportunity to bring together a deserved audience and highlight the advances being made in our industry. It’s testament to Novaliq efforts that this year’s judging faculty have recognised them in this manner.” Neil Darkes, Co-CEO, LSX Ltd. and LifestarsTM
