About the SME Instrument programme, check infographics. Awarded funding for the project No “889219 -SA-VOIR” for “Assessing the feasibility of a first-in-class drug to treat glaucoma and other neurodegenerative diseases via a breakthrough mechanism-of-action”.
Glaucoma is the world’s leading cause of irreversible blindness, affecting 20 million people in Europe and the US. Known as the Alzheimer’s of the eye, glaucoma is a neurodegenerative disorder that causes deterioration in peripheral vision. We aim to develop our lead compound up to the clinical trials. In SA-VOIR, we aimed to strengthen the business case of our compound portfolio and to outline a detailed technical plan for its continued development. These documents will not only guide us in developing the drug towards Phase 1 trials in an effective and de-risked manner, it will also form critical components of our business plan.
