Following the approval for production, EssexBio will be the first company to commercialise the preservative-free single-dose Tobramycin Eye Drops in China. There are eight more preservative-free single-dose ocular drugs in different clinical stages of development, which are expected to obtain approval from CFDA for commercialisation in the coming years.
The Board of Directors of EssexBio expects with confidence that the launch of the preservative-free single-dose Tobramycin will enrich the Group’s ocular product portfolios and thus strengthen its market position in China prescription ocular drugs.
