Ocugen Provides Business Update with Third Quarter 2023 Financial Results
Conference Call and Webcast Today at 8:30 a.m. ET
•OCU400 demonstrated favorable safety and tolerability profile in retinitis pigmentosa (RP) and Leber congenial amaurosis (LCA) subjects
•Completed dosing of three LCA patients including a pediatric patient
•OCU400 Phase 1/2 study results suggest stabilization or improvement of Best-Corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA) or Multi-Luminance Mobility Testing (MLMT) or Low-Luminance Visual Acuity (LLVA) in treated eyes of 83% (10/12) subjects
•Stabilization or improvement in MLMT scores from baseline in 86% (6/7) of RHO subjects demonstrated gene-agnostic property of OCU400 modifier gene therapy and its potential benefits in broader RP and LCA subjects
•Ocugen’s inhaled mucosal vaccine candidate for COVID-19—OCU500—selected by National Institutes of Health (NIH)/National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases’ (NIAID) Project NextGen for inclusion in clinical trials
MALVERN, Pa., November 9, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ocugen, Inc. (Ocugen or the Company) (NASDAQ: OCGN), a biotechnology company focused on discovering, developing, and commercializing novel gene and cell therapies, biologics, and vaccines, today reported third quarter 2023 financial results along with a general business update.
“Ocugen has made significant pipeline progress in the third quarter,” said Dr. Shankar Musunuri, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and Co-Founder of Ocugen. “In particular, based on the OCU400 data presented in September, I am as enthusiastic as ever regarding the potential for our modifier gene therapy approach to make an important difference in the lives of people living with blindness diseases. OCU400—our lead candidate—has the potential to address multiple genetic mutations with a single product compared to traditional gene therapies that target one gene at a time.”
This clinical efficacy update provided in September 2023 included data for 12 subjects who have completed a minimum of 6 months follow up. 83%, 83%, and 75% of subjects demonstrated stabilization or improvements in OCU400 treated eyes on BCVA, LLVA, and MLMT scores, respectively from baseline. 86% of subjects with the RHO gene mutation experienced either stabilization or increase in MLMT scores from baseline, including a subset of 29% that demonstrated a three Lux luminance level improvement. Preservation of remaining vision, slowing disease progression, or improving the vision can significantly impact patients’ quality of life.
“The improvements in BCVA, LLVA and MLMT in RHO patients—a disease affecting more than 10,000 people in the U.S. alone—supports the gene-agnostic mechanism of action for OCU400,” said Dr. Musunuri.
In October 2023, OCU500, was selected by the NIAID Project NextGen for inclusion in clinical trials. OCU500 will be tested via two different mucosal routes, inhalation into the lungs and as a nasal spray. Currently used injected vaccines, including mRNA vaccines, are not effective in preventing infection and spread although effective against severe infection. Generating mucosal immunity in nasal and respiratory airways could help block the infection at its origin, thus limiting spread.
“NIAID support for our mucosal vaccine platform is the result of many months of hard work and dedicated effort by our Ocugen team and is a first step in potentially expanding the platform to flu and other respiratory viral diseases and infections,” said Dr. Musunuri. “Additionally, this funding makes it possible to focus the majority of Ocugen’s R&D and clinical resources on our first-in-class gene and cell therapies.”
As Ocugen prepares to start Phase 3 for OCU400, begin dosing patients for OCU410 and OCU410ST, and initiate the Phase 1 trial for OCU500 in collaboration with NIAID, the company is making meaningful progress toward its long-term strategy and delivering on each of its scientific platforms in the near-term.
Ophthalmic Gene Therapies—First-in-class
•OCU400 — Completed dosing adult RP patients in the dose-escalation and dose-expansion portions of the trial; completed dosing three LCA patients including a pediatric patient. Phase 3 clinical trial for the treatment of RP to be initiated in early 2024 following FDA concurrence on study design. Subsequently, the Company is expecting to expand the OCU400 Phase 3 clinical trial for LCA patients in the second half of 2024 based on Phase 1/2 study results in LCA patients and alignment with the FDA.
•OCU410 and OCU410ST — IND applications to initiate Phase 1/2 trials for both OCU410 and OCU410ST were cleared by the FDA and the Company intends to dose patients in Phase 1/2 trials by the end of 2023.
Ophthalmic Biologic Product
•OCU200 — Continuing to work on the Company’s response to the FDA regarding the IND application and expect to initiate the Phase 1 clinical trial in the first half of 2024, contingent on the lift of the FDA hold and adequate availability of funding.
Regenerative Cell Therapies—First-in-class
•NeoCart® — Ocugen’s autologous regenerative cell therapy (using patients’ own cartilage cells) remains on track to begin its Phase 3 clinical trial in the second half of 2024. A cGMP facility for manufacturing NeoCart is expected to be completed at the end of 2023 and qualification is expected in the first half of 2024.
•Mucosal Vaccine Platform — The Company is collaborating with NIAID to initiate clinical trials of OCU500 in early 2024.

OCU400 Clinical Program A Phase 1/2 Study to Assess the Safety and Efficacy of OCU400 for Retinitis Pigmentosa associated with NR2E3 and RHO mutations and Leber Congenital Amaurosis with mutation(s) in CEP290 gene Clinical Trials.gov Identifier: NCT05203939 Safety of subretinal administration of OCU400 Immune responses Systemic Distribution Best Corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA) Multi-Luminance Mobility Test (MLMT) Low Luminance Visual Acuity (LLVA) Primary: Safety Exploratory: Efficacy 4 4
Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) and Leber Congenital Amaurosis (LCA)— Unmet need and Treatment Benefit Target • Inherited retinal diseases (IRDs), such as RP and LCA, are a group of heterogenous genetic disorders that affect the retina, the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye • IRDs often lead to a gradual loss of vision over time and can ultimately result in blindness • Stabilization of vision is crucial for patients with RP and LCA due to the progressive and degenerative nature of these diseases • Preservation of remaining vision, slowing disease progression, or improving the vision can significantly impact the lives of patients. Such outcomes can not only enhance the quality of life for affected individuals but also provide hope that future treatments could ultimately lead to vision restoration. • Comprehensive care, early diagnosis, and access to emerging therapies are essential components of a strategy to stabilize vision in RP and LCA patients 5
Responder Analysis Stabilization/Improvement from Baseline [Treated Eyes] Showed stabilization or improvement on all three parametersStabilization: BCVA: 4 letters change LLVA: 4 letters change MLMT: 0 change in Lux Level Improvement: BCVA: ≥ 5 letters change LLVA: ≥ 5 letters change MLMT: ≥1 change in Lux Level Assessed for subjects who have completed a minimum of 6 months follow-up post-OCU400 dosing 6
Encouraging Results from OCU400 Phase 1/2 Clinical Trial Update Results suggest gene modifier gene therapy has potential benefits in broader RP and LCA patients • OCU400 continues to demonstrate a favorable safety and tolerability profile • Clinical study update suggests continued positive trends in Best-Corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA) and Multi- Luminance Mobility Testing (MLMT), as well as positive trends in Low-Luminance Visual Acuity (LLVA) among treated eyes • 83% (10/12) of subjects demonstrated stabilization or improvement in the treated eye either on BCVA or LLVA or MLMT scores from baseline • 75% (9/12) of subjects demonstrated stabilization or improvement in treated eyes in MLMT scores from baseline • 86% (6/7) of RHO mutation subjects experienced either stabilization or improvement in MLMT scores from baseline, among which 29% (2/7) demonstrated 3 Lux luminance level improvement • Treatment effect in RHO patients—a disease affecting more than 10,000 people in the U.S. alone– supports the gene-agnostic mechanism of action of OCU400 7
Continued Momentum in Progressing OCU400 Phase 1/2 Trial • Completed dosing adult RP patients in the dose-escalation and dose-expansion portions of the trial • Completed dosing three LCA patients including a pediatric patient • Planning to initiate Phase 3 trial for the treatment of RP in early 2024 following FDA concurrence on study design • Expecting to expand the OCU400 Phase 3 clinical trial for LCA patients in the second half of 2024 based on Phase 1/2 clinical trial results in LCA patients and alignment with FDA 8
