Citrus Therapeutics to Present CTZ1™ Groundbreaking Therapy for Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) at Ophthalmology Innovation Summit XII
The Californer/10219342

Presentation will highlight this novel vascular disruptive antioxidant agent for treating wet and dry AMD with potential synergy given concurrent therapies

RIVERSIDE, Calif. - Californer -- Citrus Therapeutics, LLC, a manufacturer of innovative therapies and an early leader in novel multi-pharmacophore agents for AMD treatment, will present on its patent-pending therapeutic agent, CTZ1™, at the OIS XII event on December 2nd in San Diego, CA.  CTZ1™ is the first-of-its-kind vascular disruptive agent (VDA) for treating both wet and dry AMD and was selected for this most competitive showcase for emerging ophthalmology and retina therapeutics and devices.

Citrus Therapeutics is also considered for the 2022 Ophthalmology Innovator Award for CTZ1™.

CTZ1™ is a unique vascular disruptive agent for combating the oxidative damage encountered in macular degeneration. CTZ1™ combines an antioxidant moiety fused to an angiogenic-modulating activity structure; consequently, this multi-pharmacophore combination mitigates oxidant damage experienced in AMD. CTZ1™ - as a "vascular disruptive agent" - can stabilize and temper pathological angiogenic processes secondary to progressive AMD.
