About SBI-100 Ophthalmic Emulsion
SBI-100 OE is a novel synthetically-manufactured THC prodrug 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 and ocular hypertension. Skye's recently reported Phase 1 data showed that SBI-100 OE was safe and well-tolerated; a subgroup of health volunteers with higher baseline IOP also displayed an encouraging reduction of IOP. Its Phase 2a clinical trial for SBI-100 OE to treat glaucoma and ocular hypertension will soon begin patient dosing.
About Skye Bioscience
Skye is focused on unlocking the pharmaceutical potential of the endocannabinoid system, initially through modulation of the CB1 receptor. Backed by leading biotechnology venture investors, Skye's strategy leverages biologic targets with substantial human proof of mechanism for the development of first-in-class therapeutics with significant clinical and commercial differentiation. SBI-100 Ophthalmic Emulsion is a CB1 agonist that is a potential treatment for glaucoma; it will start Phase 2 in Q4 2023, with an interim data readout in Q1 2024. Nimacimab, a negative allosteric modulating antibody, inhibits peripheral CB1 with unprecedented safety and tolerability. Skye plans to start a Phase 2 study of nimacimab for cardiometabolic conditions in early 2024. For more information, please visit: https://www.skyebioscience.com.
