Rush, New York and London, UK – Oculos (www.OculosCR.com), an industry-leading vertically-integrated ophthalmic R&D organization, and Optceutics (www.optceutics.com), a leading expert in ophthalmic R&D and the developer of the PK-EyeTM, announced today that they are entering into a co-promotion arrangement to provide broader services for clients spanning from early research through product approval.
The co-promotion agreement demonstrates the commitment by both organizations to providing a seamless engagement to ophthalmic companies looking for support across the entire R&D lifecycle.
Optceutics will join Oculos at booth #1455 at the Association of Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) Annual Meeting, April 28 – May 2, 2019, in Vancouver, British Columbia,.
Optceutics uses PK-Eye™, a dynamic ophthalmic pharmacokinetic model, to speed and enhance development of intravitreal injection and implant based biologic and pharmaceutical products. The PK-Eye™ can be used to identify the right formulation technology, optimize the selection of dose and dose frequency, compare activity and duration to known products, reduce program risk before moving into costly animal and human studies, speed development of biosimilar products and generate unique data to support additional patent coverage.
Oculos’ fully integrated ophthalmic R&D organization provides services in the following areas for ophthalmic pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device companies across the globe: regulatory strategy / submission, formulation development, analytical chemistry, microbiology, CMC and clinical research.
Chris Redhead, CEO of Optceutics commented, “Oculos has a well-deserved reputation as a leading provider of ophthalmic drug R&D. We believe access to its expanding repertoire of preclinical, clinical and regulatory expertise will have huge benefits for our clients moving their new drugs and formulations towards the market.”
