San Diego, California–(Newsfile Corp. – April 4, 2023) – Skye Bioscience, Inc. (OTCQB: SKYE) (“Skye” or the “Company”), a pharmaceutical company developing a proprietary, synthetic cannabinoid derivative to treat glaucoma, has received a positive recommendation following a pre-specified data review by the safety review committee (“SRC”) based on dosing of the third cohort of eight healthy participants in the single ascending dose arm of its Phase 1 study of SBI-100 Ophthalmic Emulsion (“OE”). The SRC determined that in Cohort 3, the highest dose cohort (2.0% concentration), the data was consistent with Cohorts 1 and 2 (0.5% and 1.0% concentration, respectively), with no serious adverse events, and mild and moderate drug related adverse events.
Based on the SRC’s prior agreement, as well as the human ethics review committee (“HREC”) approval to start the multiple ascending dose (“MAD”) arm of the study, enrollment for the first cohort of the MAD arm (fourth cohort of the Phase 1) has started. Participant dosing is planned for late April.
