Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 17 ottobre 2019

Aura Biosciences, a leader in the development of novel targeted therapies in ocular oncology, today announced the presentation of updated clinical data from its ongoing Phase 1b/2 clinical trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of light-activated AU-011, the Company’s lead product candidate for the first line treatment of primary choroidal melanoma, at the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) 2019 Annual Meeting, being held October 12-15, 2019 in San Francisco, CA.“With its ability to provide tumor control and vision preservation, AU-011 holds significant potential as a new targeted therapy for the primary treatment of choroidal melanoma,” said Cadmus Rich, MD, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Research and Development of Aura Biosciences. “The data presented this year by Dr. Duker provided information on Aura’s proprietary technology platform and key insights that will inform the design and conduct of our pivotal Phase 3 program for AU-011, which we expect to commence in the second half of 2020. Dr. Schefler’s presentation included an update on ongoing research we are conducting into suprachoroidal delivery which, may allow us to increase the range of tumor sizes that AU-011 can treat. Both of these presentations underscore our long-term vision and commitment to bringing this first-in-class technology to patients for this rare and life-threatening disease.”
