Abstract

Purpose : ENV515 (travoprost) Intracameral Implant is a biodegradable extended-release polymer drug delivery system designed to address multiple shortcomings of current topical treatments for glaucoma Previously, the low dose formulation, ENV515-3, successfully demonstrated 6 months of IOP lowering effect in the Beagle dog, and 9 months of IOP lowering effect in humans. Currently, we are evaluating the full duration of action of the high dose formulation, ENV515-3-2, in the Beagle dog for up to 12 months in a non-GLP efficacy study.

Methods : High dose ENV515-3-2 (travoprost) implants were manufactured aseptically utilizing the PRINT© technology. Beagle dogs (3 males/group) were given a single bilateral intracameral administration of ENV515-3-2 (2 implants/eye) and were followed for up to 12 months. Animals were evaluated every two weeks for intraocular pressure (IOP).

Results : Two ENV515-3-2 implants were successfully dosed in the Beagle dog. Following a single bilateral intracameral administration of 2 ENV515-3-2 (travoprost) implants, the high dose formulation demonstrated at least 7 months of IOP lowering with an average treatment effect of 38% (±4.0%) decrease in IOP from baseline, or an average decrease of 9.4 ±1.2 mmHg from baseline (24.7 mmHg).

Conclusions : A single bilateral intracameral administration of two ENV515 (travoprost) implants demonstrated at least 7 months of IOP lowering with an average treatment effect of 38% (±4.0%) decrease in IOP from baseline. Based on the previous correlation of efficacy between the Beagle dog and humans following the low dose ENV515-3 formulation, these high dose results in the Beagle dog suggest the potential for 12 months of IOP lowering effect in humans comparable to that achieved with topical Travatan Z.
