About SBI-100 Ophthalmic Emulsion
SBI-100 OE is a novel synthetically-derived molecule formulated as an eye drop using a proprietary nanoemulsion to improve delivery into the eye. SBI-100 OE targets the CB1 receptor, which plays a role in modulating intraocular pressure ("IOP"), with the goal of lowering increased IOP related to glaucoma. SBI-100 OE displayed favorable results in animal studies as a monotherapy and in combination with an approved glaucoma drug compared to standard of care glaucoma drugs alone and in other combinations. Skye is awaiting final approvals and completing other preparatory steps for its Phase 2a clinical trial for SBI-100 OE to treat glaucoma and ocular hypertension and expects first patient dosing early in the fourth quarter of 2023.
