RegeneRx Biopharmaceuticals : Joint Venture Enrolls Last Subject in Phase 3 Dry Eye Trial

10/29/2020 | 08:50am EST

ROCKVILLE - RegeneRx Biopharmaceuticals, Inc., a clinical-stage drug development company focused on tissue protection, repair and regeneration announced today that its joint venture, ReGenTree LLC, has enrolled the last of 700 subjects in the ARISE-3 phase 3 clinical trial for dry eye syndrome.

Completion of treatment and follow-up for the last subject is anticipated to be by the end of November 2020. ReGenTree is a U.S. joint venture company owned by RegeneRx and GtreeBNT, a Korean biopharmaceutical company.

ARISE-3 is designed to assess the safety and efficacy of 0.1% RGN-259 eye drops compared to placebo after two weeks of administration in 700 subjects with dry eye syndrome. RGN-259 is a proprietary eye drop that has demonstrated fast onset efficacy in two previous phase 3 clinical trials, 'ARISE-1' and 'ARISE-2', is safe and well-tolerated, and has not shown any adverse side effects such as eye irritation, stinging, visual disturbance, etc., unlike currently approved products.

This year, GtreeBNT announced that it has secured additional major intellectual property rights, including patents related to composition, formulation, and manufacturing of RGN-259 eye drops, and that RGN-259 has recently been reclassified as a biologic requiring a Biologics License Application (BLA), rather than an New Drug Application (NDA), conferring 12 years of market exclusivity when the product is approved by FDA.

About ReGenTree, LLC

ReGenTree is a U.S. joint venture company owned by GtreeBNT Co., Ltd, and RegeneRx Biopharmaceuticals, Inc., specifically to develop RGN-259 in both the USA and Canada for ophthalmic indications. ReGenTree licensed the rights to RGN-259 from RegeneRx in 2015. Thus far, ReGenTree has completed two Phase 3 studies in the U.S. for dry eye, which are ARISE-1 (Phase 2b/3) and ARISE-2 (Phase 3). Currently, the Company is conducting a third Phase 3 study (ARISE-3) for dry eye. In addition to dry eye, the Company is planning to conduct a Phase 3 study (SEER-2) for neurotrophic keratopathy (NK), an orphan indication in ophthalmology.
