Selenium sulfide is under clinical development by Azura Ophthalmics and currently in Phase II for Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca (Dry Eye). According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca (Dry Eye) have a 56% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how Selenium sulfide’s drug-specific PTSR and Likelihood of Approval (LoA) scores compare to the indication benchmarks. Buy the report here.

GlobalData tracks drug-specific phase transition and likelihood of approval scores, in addition to indication benchmarks based off 18 years of historical drug development data. Attributes of the drug, company and its clinical trials play a fundamental role in drug-specific PTSR and likelihood of approval.

Selenium sulfide overview

Selenium sulfide (AZRMD-001) is under development for the treatment of dry eye disease and contact lens intolerance or discomfort which is caused by meibomian gland dysfunction. It is administered through ophthalmic route in the form of emulsion ointment.

Azura Ophthalmics overview

Azura Ophthalmics is a biotechnology company that develops ophthalmic keratolytic for the treatment of ocular surface diseases. It is investigating AZR-MD-001 and AZR-MD-002 programs against meibomian gland dysfunction; AZR-MD-001 to treat evaporative dry eye and contact lens discomfort; and AZR-BL-007 and AZR-BL-008 compounds targeting blepharitis. The company is also evaluating AZR-AD-004 and AZR-AD-005 for aqueous deficient dry eye; and AZR-AE-006 for the treatment of acute exacerbation of dry eye.
