Weber, Ph.D., president and CEO of Otonomy. “We are also tracking to our financial plan and guidance that will enable our existing capital to fund operations through these three clinical trial results next year and into 2021."

      Product Pipeline Update

      • OTIVIDEX™: Enrollment in Phase 3 Clinical Trial in Ménière’s Disease is Ongoing with Results Expected in the First Half of 2020.Otonomy has completed one successful Phase 3 trial and is conducting this additional pivotal trial to support a submission for U.S. registration of OTIVIDEX in Ménière’s disease. The company plans to enroll approximately 160 patients in the United States and Europe.
      • OTO-313: Enrollment in Phase 1/2 Clinical Trial in Tinnitus is Ongoing with Results Expected in the First Half of 2020. In April, Otonomy initiated enrollment of the first patients in a Phase 1/2 clinical trial for OTO-313, a sustained-exposure formulation of the NMDA receptor antagonist gacyclidine, in tinnitus patients. The randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial included an initial safety cohort, which has been successfully completed, followed by an exploratory efficacy study that is currently enrolling approximately 50 patients with tinnitus.
      • OTO-413: Preparing to Initiate a Phase 1/2 Clinical Trial in Hearing Loss Patients in the Third Quarter of 2019. OTO-413 is a sustained-exposure formulation of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in development for the repair of cochlear synaptopathy, an underlying cause of hearing loss. Otonomy is preparing to initiate a Phase 1/2 clinical trial in the third quarter of 2019 that will enroll approximately 40 patients with speech-in-noise hearing loss.
      "Additionally, I would like to take this opportunity to express my best wishes to Dr. Kathie Bishop, chief scientific officer, who has resigned in order to join a former colleague in an early-stage venture," said Dr. Weber. "We appreciate the support that Kathie provided during the last two years as we positioned the company for our upcoming clinical milestones and look forward to her continued involvement as a scientific advisor."
