WATERTOWN, Mass., Aug. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EyePoint Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: EYPT), a pharmaceutical company committed to developing and commercializing therapeutics to improve the lives of patients with serious eye disorders, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022 and highlighted recent corporate developments.
“We continue to make significant progress at EyePoint, with the recent Phase 2 clinical trial initiation for EYP-1901 for the treatment of wet AMD, demonstrating the team’s continued strong execution in advancing our innovative pipeline,” said Nancy Lurker, Chief Executive Officer of EyePoint Pharmaceuticals. “In addition to this key milestone, we presented 12-month Phase 1 DAVIO safety and efficacy results at the ASRS 2022 Annual Meeting, further bolstering our belief that EYP-1901 has the potential to significantly reduce the treatment burden of this serious eye disease by providing the majority of patients with a safe and reliable maintenance therapy option for up to six months without supplemental anti-VEGF therapy. With these positive results in-hand, supported by our strong balance sheet, we are well-positioned to advance EYP-1901 through these important Phase 2 trials.”
Ms. Lurker continued, “On the commercial front, we had our strongest quarter to-date with $11.3 million in net product revenue, an increase of 30% from the first quarter of this year along with continued strong customer demand for both YUTIQ® and DEXYCU®.”
