About Aerie Pharmaceuticals
Aerie is a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of first-in-class therapies for the treatment of patients with glaucoma and other diseases of the eye. The Company is conducting two Phase 3 registration trials in the United States, named "Rocket 1" and "Rocket 2," where the primary efficacy endpoint will be to demonstrate non-inferiority of IOP lowering for Rhopressa™ compared to timolol, along with a third Phase 3 registration safety-only trial, named "Rocket 3," in Canada.
In June 2014, the Company also completed a Phase 2b clinical trial where Roclatan™ met the primary efficacy endpoint, demonstrating the statistical superiority of Roclatan™ to each of its components. Roclatan™ is a fixed-dose combination of Rhopressa™ with latanoprost, the market-leading PGA, and we believe, if approved, has the potential to provide a greater IOP-lowering effect than any currently approved glaucoma product. Phase 3 registration trials for Roclatan™ are expected to commence in mid-2015. Preparatory steps for these trials are in progress and on schedule.
