In his presentation, Dr. Yerxa will highlight recent results from the Company's phase 2 clinical trial with ENV515 in patients with glaucoma.  ENV515 is a fully biodegradable PRINT® particle formulation of a marketed prostaglandin analog that has the potential to lower intraocular pressure (IOP) for more than 6 months from a single dose.  ENV515 has the potential to address the issue of poor patient compliance that exists today with daily eye drops and limit the progression of glaucoma that sometimes leads to vision loss. 

Envisia is also leveraging the company's unique platform technology to develop products for other leading ocular diseases including age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic macular edema (DME), and ocular inflammation.
