RegeneRx Biopharmaceuticals reported enrolling all 72 patients in its phase 2 trial of its RGN-259 treatment for dry-eye syndrome.
Patients will receive RGN-259 or a placebo twice daily until Sept. 23. The Rockville biotech expects preliminary data available in October.
In animal models, RGN-259 worked better than Restasis — the only FDA-approved drug for dry-eye syndrome — for certain conditions, according to a RegeneRx statement.
