RP101 is a novel, topical treatment for post-menopausal women suffering from chronic, moderate-to-severe dry eye disease (DED). This Phase II product candidate consists of a low-dose estrogen analog formulated in IntelliGel, a proprietary controlled-release drug delivery platform, and will be the first hormonal therapy for DED targeted to specific underlying biological mechanisms in critical tissues in and around the eye. Redwood Pharma initiated a randomized, placebo-controlled multicenter Phase II trial where the first patient was dosed in February 2019, with the last patient exiting the trial in November 2019 and topline results expected in Q1 2020. Highlights include:
- Serious unmet medical need (US$3bn global DED market) and well-defined addressable market – 7% of all post-menopausal women suffer from moderate-to-severe DED, 10m in the US & Europe alone
- Estrogen – a safe and effective API found in 500+ products sold globally. RP101 will deliver a topical, low dose to the eye
- Novel IntelliGel drug delivery platform well-suited for ophthalmic use – increases bioavailability, reduces number of doses
- Strong safety profile and efficacy data, including positive data from 2 previous Phase II trials in the US of 138 patients demonstrating safety profile and improvement of both signs and symptoms in post-menopausal women with moderate-to-severe DED
- Phase II data in Q1 2020, with GMP production established and clear path to commercialization
- Strong IP and market exclusivity
About Redwood Pharma
Redwood Pharma develops ophthalmic products for unmet medical needs. The Company’s first project is the development of drug candidate RP101 with a known active substance against chronic dry eye in postmenopausal women who have moderate to severe symptoms. With the drug delivery platform IntelliGel the release of active substances is controlled. Through the use of IntelliGel, Redwood Pharma can also improve dosing of other established drugs. Redwood Pharma’s strength lies in formulation and early clinical development.
