Alimera Announces Positive 36-Month Results From The Completed Phase 3 FAME(TM) Study Of ILUVIEN(R) In Patients With Diabetic Macular Edema

"We believe the statistical significance observed in both trials at month 33 meets the criteria for replication of efficacy in the two studies," said Susan Caballa, senior vice president of regulatory affairs at Alimera. "We will provide this safety and efficacy data to the FDA so that it will have the opportunity to review it as part of our pending NDA for ILUVIEN for the treatment of DME."
