Omeros Reports OMS103HP Phase 3 Clinical Trial Results

"These consistent results – better pain reduction together with less narcotic usage and less frequent incidence of postoperative inflammatory problems – underscore the strength of OMS103HP's unique approach to improving arthroscopy outcomes," stated Christopher C. Kaeding, M.D., professor of orthopedic surgery and head team physician at The Ohio State University. "Orthopedic surgeons understand the importance of preventing postoperative pain and inflammation, and there is increasing evidence that intraoperative joint inflammation is detrimental to the long-term health of the joint. Treatments currently available to us, however, are administered after the surgical insult. OMS103HP, delivered intraoperatively, provides an opportunity to inhibit inflammation and related surgical problems before they begin. OMS103HP could become a key component in the management of arthroscopy patients."

Results from this first Phase 3 arthroscopic meniscectomy clinical trial are expected to be presented at an upcoming major orthopedic sports medicine meeting. Omeros also plans to publish the results in a leading peer-reviewed arthroscopy journal.

"We are pleased with the outcome of this trial," said Gregory A. Demopulos, M.D., chairman and chief executive officer of Omeros. "While not meeting all endpoints, the consistently positive results on pain reduction and the series of related inflammatory measures mark a clear path to approval of OMS103HP. The arthroscopy market is large and these data, together with an early 2013 NDA submission for our ophthalmic surgery product OMS302, set the stage for potentially two near-term market launches."

About Omeros' OMS103HP Program OMS103HP is Omeros' PharmacoSurgery™ product candidate being developed for use during arthroscopic procedures, including partial meniscectomy surgery, and was designed to provide a multimodal approach to preemptively block the inflammatory cascade induced by arthroscopy. OMS103HP is a proprietary combination of anti-inflammatory/analgesic active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), each with well-known safety and pharmacologic profiles. Comprised of only anti-inflammatory active ingredients without any anesthetic agents, such as lidocaine or bupivacaine, and delivered directly to the joint in the arthroscopic irrigation solution, use of OMS103HP avoids the frequently reported damage to cartilage cells due to intraarticular delivery of local anesthetics as well as the detrimental effects of systemically delivered analgesics. Each of the APIs in OMS103HP are components of generic, FDA-approved drugs that have been marketed in the United States as over-the-counter or prescription drug products for over 15 years and have established and well-characterized safety profiles.

Control of postoperative inflammation and resultant pain is critical to functional recovery in arthroscopy patients. In Phase 2 and Phase 3 clinical trials that evaluated OMS103HP in patients undergoing partial meniscectomy surgery, OMS103HP provided clinically meaningful benefits related to postoperative pain and inflammation.
