PolyPhotonix Limited, developer of a patented noninvasive treatment for diabetic retinopathy, entered a global strategic alliance with Prevail InfoWorks, Inc. (“InfoWorks”) to lead management of FDA regulated human clinical trials of PolyPhotonix’s Noctura 400 Sleep Mask.
The Noctura 400 Sleep Mask has the potential to treat and prevent diabetic retinopathy, a condition of diabetic patients that can lead to blindness. Diabetic retinopathy represents a significant burden of disease for both patients and healthcare systems globally and is a significant cause of blindness in the working age population.
InfoWorks will deploy its patented capabilities and technology for achieving the highest quality data in the shortest possible time during clinical trials. In addition, Prevail Partners, LLC, an affiliate of InfoWorks, has agreed to invest significantly in PolyPhotonix upon the commencement of the FDA clinical trial as lead investor in a Series A investment round. Current investors include the UK Future Fund and Revere Capital Advisors LLC.
PolyPhotonix’s relationship with InfoWorks, assisted by the commitment of Prevail Partners, will expedite the progression of its FDA trial for the Noctura 400 Sleep Mask. PolyPhotonix, InfoWorks and Prevail Partners anticipate that this relationship will benefit the advancement of other indications from PolyPhotonix’s biotechnology pipeline.
