Additional Information

Official title A Phase 2, Multi-center, Randomized, Double-masked, Placebo (Vehicle)-Controlled Clinical Study With an Open Label Comparator Arm to Assess the Efficacy, Safety and Tolerability of Topical CyclASol® for Treatment of Dry Eye Disease
Description This phase 2 study will explore the safety, efficacy and tolerability of two CyclASol concentrations as one drop twice daily versus vehicle (placebo). In addition to the masked vehicle control arm, an open-label comparator arm consisting of Restasis will be included. The study will explore a range of signs and symptoms of DED to gain an understanding of the possible treatment effects in comparison to vehicle and estimation of effect sizes. In line with current treatment guidelines, the proposed phase 2 population will consist of patients suffering from moderate to severe DED.
