Item 8.01. Other Information
On January 21, 2021, Surface Ophthalmics, Inc. (“Surface”) issued a press release (the “Surface PR”) reporting positive top-line results from a Phase II trial of its drug candidate SURF-201, a 0.2% betamethasone, preservative-free ophthalmic solution in the Klarity® delivery vehicle for the treatment of post cataract surgery pain and inflammation. According to the Surface PR, SURF-201 was dosed twice daily, and met its primary endpoints of absence of inflammation at both Day 8 and Day 15 and was found to be safe and well-tolerated by the patient group. In addition, a secondary endpoint showed almost 90% of patients given SURF-201 were pain free at Day 15. SURF-201 marks the first ophthalmic therapeutic in the United States to utilize betamethasone as well as being the first preservative-free unit dose therapy for the treatment of post-operative pain and inflammation.
Harrow Health, Inc. currently owns three million five hundred thousand (3,500,000) shares of Surface common stock, which is approximately 30% of the issued and outstanding voting interests of Surface, along with a mid-single digit royalty right on net sales of SURF-201.
The foregoing is only a brief description of the Surface PR, does not purport to be a complete description of the Surface PR and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the document, which is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
