Dry eye disease drug candidate failed to meet key treatment goals in trial

The AP (1/21) reports that Inspire Pharmaceuticals Inc. said Prolacria (diquafosal), its drug candidate for dry eye disease, “failed to meet key treatment goals” in a Phase 3 clinical trial of 490 patients lasting six weeks.
The Triangle Business Journal (1/21, Vinluan) reports that Inspire “said that its product, Prolacria, did not meet primary or secondary goals set for the drug in the trials.” Inspire President and CEO Christy Shaffer said in a statement that the company “will be conducting a thorough review of the program before determining next steps, if any.” In 2002, under the name INS365, tests of Prolacria “showed the drug worked no better than saline.”
