PSivida Corp. Reports Fourth Quarter And Fiscal Year 2012 Results

Stocks in this article: PSDVPVA

pSivida Corp. (NASDAQ: PSDV) (ASX: PVA), a leader in developing sustained release, drug delivery products for treatment of back-of-the-eye diseases, today announced financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2012.

“This has been another excellent quarter for us,” said Dr. Paul Ashton, President and CEO. “The FDA recently cleared our IND for the posterior uveitis product we are independently developing, permitting us to move directly to two Phase III clinical trials with a 12 month primary end point of recurrence of uveitis and allowing us to reference much of the data, including the clinical safety data, from the clinical trials for ILUVIEN® for Diabetic Macular Edema (DME). We are currently planning the trials, which we expect will target enrollment of a total of 300 patients. Because we are using the same micro-insert used in ILUVIEN for DME, which delivers the same drug as our approved Retisert® product for posterior uveitis, we expect these trials will show efficacy with a comparable side-effect profile in uveitis patients as was seen in DME patients. As a result, we are optimistic that our micro-insert will be efficacious for posterior uveitis, with a favorable risk/benefit profile and fewer side effects compared to Retisert. At the end of June, we had over $14 million in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities and in August raised a further $4.7 million from a registered direct offering of shares of common stock and warrants.

“We were also pleased with the progress on the commercialization of ILUVIEN for DME in the EU by our licensee Alimera Sciences. ILUVIEN has received marketing authorization in the United Kingdom, Austria, Portugal, France and Germany, and has been recommended for marketing authorization in Italy and Spain, for the treatment of vision impairment associated with DME considered insufficiently responsive to available therapies. Further, Alimera has reported its plan to launch ILUVIEN in Germany, the United Kingdom and France in 2013, and has announced a $40 million equity financing, which Alimera believes upon closing will position it financially to proceed with that commercialization,” continued Dr. Ashton. “Our collaboration agreement entitles us to receive 20% of net profits, as defined, on sales of ILUVIEN by Alimera in each of these countries.”
