The Company also announced that the data related with Phase III trials will be shared in second half of 2019.

Analyst View:

The application range of nanoemulsion technology is increasing significantly and the drug delivery process is enhancing due to incessant research and development in this field. Thus, enhancing performance of ocular therapy is just one of the developments observed about nanoemulsions its other advantages have boosted several antimicrobial and oncology drugs to reformulate the drugs with this technology to achieve higher bioavailability coupled with drug efficacy.
