Case History

There was a need to understand the nature of Ocular Discomfort and the major issues that would need to be addressed to ensure the successful development of new pharmaceutical treatments. A disease area strategy was developed for the client after consultation with leading expert opinion across the world. This consultation process first postulated a new definition of Dry Eye which preceded the publication, by experts involved in the programme.
