July 1, 2019

Oxurion NV (Euronext Brussels: OXUR), a biopharmaceutical company developing innovative treatments to preserve vision in patients with diabetic eye disease, today reports positive topline data from a Phase 1 study with THR-149, a novel, potent, plasma kallikrein (PKal) inhibitor for the treatment of Diabetic Macular Edema (DME).

THR-149 has been developed in partnership with Bicycle Therapeutics (Nasdaq: BCYC).

The Phase 1 open-label, multicenter (US), non-randomized trial evaluated the safety of a single intravitreal (IVT) injection of THR-149, a novel PKal inhibitor, at 3 ascending dose levels in 12 subjects with visual impairment due to center-involved DME (CI-DME) (NCT03511898).

Topline data from the trial show that THR-149 is well-tolerated and safe. No dose-limiting toxicities nor drug-related serious adverse events were reported at any of the dosages evaluated in the study.
