ALPHARETTA, Ga., Sept. 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Clearside Biomedical, Inc.

“We are pleased to highlight the breadth of our suprachoroidal space (SCS®) platform across ophthalmic indications,” said Thomas A. Ciulla, M.D., MBA, Chief Medical Officer and Chief Development Officer. “There are multiple upcoming catalysts related to our internal CLS-AX program and from our development and commercialization partners. In November of this year, we plan to report data from all four cohorts of our OASIS Phase 1/2a clinical trial of CLS-AX in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD).
