MALVERN, Pa. — November 9, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ocugen, Inc. (Ocugen or the Company) (NASDAQ: OCGN), a biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering, developing, and commercializing gene therapies to cure blindness diseases and developing a vaccine to save lives from COVID-19, today reported third quarter 2021 financial results along with a general business update.
“We’ve been relentless in our efforts to launch our innovative medicines onto regulatory pathways here in the United States. The submission of COVAXIN for Emergency Use Authorization for pediatrics is another example of Ocugen contributing to public health efforts to curb the pandemic, giving parents another option for protecting their children. Two Investigational New Drug submissions within a span of two weeks is a phenomenal achievement resulting from the work of international teams aligned around serving people with serious diseases. Our capabilities in the areas of R&D, clinical development, manufacturing, and commercial continue to expand with our workforce nearly doubling since the last quarter to deliver for the future. I’m really proud of the teams for their commitment to meeting our mission,” said Dr. Shankar Musunuri, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and Co-Founder of Ocugen.
Business Highlights
The Company filed an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) application with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the use of the COVID-19 vaccine candidate, COVAXIN™ (BBV152), for children aged 2 – 18 years. The Company believes its vaccine candidate has the potential to fulfill an unmet need in the national arsenal of COVID-19 vaccines. The inactivated virus platform has been used for decades in vaccines for pediatric populations.
The Company also filed an Investigational New Drug (IND) application with the FDA to initiate a Phase 3 clinical trial evaluating COVAXIN™ (BBV152) in support of an upcoming Biologics License Application (BLA) submission. The observer-blind, immuno-bridging study of the whole-virion, inactivated SARS-CoV-2 vaccine candidate in healthy adults, if allowed to proceed, will help demonstrate that the Phase 3 data from the studies conducted by Bharat Biotech International Limited (Bharat Biotech) in India will be applicable to the U.S. population. Under the IND, the Company will also initiate a safety-bridging study, if required.
The Company filed an IND application with the FDA for OCU400 for the Phase 1/2 study to assess the safety of OCU400 (NR2E3) in patients with a mutation in NR2E3 and RHO mutation-associated retinal degeneration. If allowed to proceed, the Company is planning to initiate this clinical trial in the United States around the end of 2021.
In September 2021, the Company entered into a Development and Commercial Supply Agreement with Bharat Biotech, pursuant to which Bharat Biotech will supply the Company with clinical trial materials and commercial supplies of COVAXIN finished drug product prior to the completion of the Company’s technology transfer to Jubilant HollisterStier.
In September 2021, the Company and CanSino Biologics, Inc. (“CanSinoBIO”) expanded their current collaboration on the development of OCU400 to now include OCU410. With that, CanSinoBIO will be responsible for the chemistry, manufacturing, and controls (CMC) development and manufacture of clinical supplies of both products and be responsible for the costs associated with such activities.
