U.S. FDA lifts clinical hold on IND application for COVAXIN™ (BBV152), clearing the pathway for Phase 2/3 clinical trial in support of a BLA submission
Engagement with U.S. FDA to advance pediatric EUA for COVAXIN™ included submission of a real-world safety database of more than 36 million vaccinated teens along with neutralization data against Omicron
Comprehensive responses regarding COVAXIN™ submitted to Health Canada for the NOD
OCU400 Phase 1/2 clinical trial initiated for the treatment of inherited retinal diseases caused by NR2E3 and RHO disease genotypes
MALVERN, Pa. — February 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ocugen, Inc. (Ocugen) (NASDAQ: OCGN), a clinical-stage 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 fourth quarter and full year 2021 financial results along with a general business update.
“The fourth quarter capped a transformational year of growth for Ocugen as we saw major progress across our portfolio. The clinical hold for the COVAXIN™ development program was lifted, and we bolstered our pediatric Emergency Use Authorization submission to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration with a safety database of more than 36 million teens vaccinated with COVAXIN™. Our lead modifier gene therapy platform candidate, OCU400, received approval to initiate a Phase 1/2 clinical trial on target. I’m very pleased with the perseverance and commitment of the Ocugen team and the achievements they’ve made thus far. 2022 is poised to be another great year for the company. We’re excited about commencing these clinical trials and will give periodic updates in the future,” said Dr. Shankar Musunuri, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and Co-Founder of Ocugen.
Business Updates
COVAXIN™ in Phase 2/3 clinical trial for future Biologics License Application (BLA) submission — The FDA lifted its clinical hold on the COVAXIN™ IND application on February 18, 2022, and the Company expects to commence this immuno-bridging and broadening clinical trial as soon as possible.
COVAXIN™ pediatric (2-18) Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) status — At the request of the FDA, Ocugen has shared real-world safety data from 36 million teenagers who had been vaccinated with COVAXIN™. Additionally, data (in-vitro) suggesting robust neutralization against Delta and Omicron variants were submitted to bolster the Company’s pediatric EUA submission, which is currently under review by the FDA.
COVAXIN™ review with Health Canada — Ocugen has submitted comprehensive responses to a Notice of Deficiency received in December 2021 from Health Canada regarding Ocugen’s New Drug Submission (NDS) for COVAXIN™. Ocugen’s responses are currently under review by Health Canada.
Gene therapy clinical development progress — A Phase 1/2 clinical trial for OCU400 was initiated in January 2022, marking an advancement of Ocugen’s modifier gene therapy program with updates for this multicenter, open-label, dose ranging study to be provided in the near future.
Manufacturing site letter of intent (LOI) with Liminal BioSciences Inc. (Liminal) — In January 2022, Ocugen entered into a non-binding LOI with Liminal, a Canadian public company, for the acquisition of Liminal’s manufacturing site in Belleville, Ontario. This manufacturing site, if acquired, would enable Ocugen to develop its internal manufacturing capabilities and expend its research and development capabilities to support its product candidate pipeline.
Public offering of common stock — In February 2022, Ocugen announced an underwritten public offering of 16.0 million shares of its common stock for net proceeds of $50.0 million before estimated offering expenses. This public offering of common stock strengthens Ocugen’s balance sheet and will be used to support Ocugen’s product candidate development as well as general corporate expenses.
