Ocugen Provides Business Update and Third Quarter 2019 Financial Highlights
MALVERN, Pa., Nov. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ocugen, Inc., (NASDAQ: OCGN), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering, developing and commercializing a pipeline of innovative therapies that address rare and underserved eye diseases, today reported financial highlights for the third quarter of 2019 and a business update.
“This is an exciting time for Ocugen as we’ve completed our merger and are now a publicly traded company,” commented Shankar Musunuri, PhD, MBA, Chairman, CEO and Co-Founder of Ocugen. “We are focused on advancing our clinical and preclinical programs, which includes completing enrollment in our Phase 3 clinical trial of OCU300, our product candidate that has received orphan drug designation from the FDA and is being developed for the treatment of ocular graft versus host disease (oGVHD) and furthering our IND-enabling studies for OCU400, our first gene therapy product candidate with two distinct orphan drug designations. We believe our new strategic partnership with CanSinoBIO will be instrumental in accelerating the progress of our modifier gene therapy platform closer to the clinic. We are working to meet several milestones over the course of the next few years that we believe will continue to add value to Ocugen shareholders.”
