In addition, they will provide highlights from the clinical, histological, and functional outcomes as published in Nature Gene Therapy evaluating AAV-NR2e3. They will also provide retina and disease backgrounds of members of the Retina Scientific Advisory Board. Lastly, they will provide an update on their goal of initiating two clinical trials in 2021 for OCU400 and expanding into four clinical trials in 2022 with OCU410 (AAV-RORA) for the treatment of dry age-related macular degeneration and OCU200, a biologic product candidate in preclinical development for treating severely sight-threatening diseases like Diabetic Macular Edema, Diabetic Retinopathy, and Wet Age-Related Macular Degeneration.

Cantor Fitzgerald initiated analyst coverage of Ocugen with an “Overweight” rating and a price target of $1.00 on October 9, based on its potential of AAV-based gene therapies and the belief that the eye is one of the most well understood target organs.
