Brief Summary:
The purpose of this Phase 1/2 study is to compare the safety and tolerability of four times a day (QID) dosing of a non-preserved topical ocular drop formulation of 10 vol/vol % and 30 vol/vol % of FD hPL to vehicle control eye drops in patients with Dry Eye Disease (DED) secondary to Graft vs. Host Disease (GvHD).

Detailed Description:

For patients who do not find relief from other modes of therapy, autologous serum tears have been used as an alternative therapy since the mid-1980s. Limitations such as the need for periodic blood draws, the lack of standardization in the preparation of AST and platelet-enriched plasma tears, the unknown shelf life of AST preparations, the use of non-preserved multi-dose packaging and the practical difficulties patients face in storing these products frozen or refrigerated have hindered their widespread use for treating GvHD and other forms of severe tear deficiency.

To address these shortcomings, Cambium Medical Technologies, LLC has developed a proprietary method of standardizing and manufacturing a fibrinogen-depleted standardized platelet lysate using pooled human platelet lysates (phPL) collected from qualified healthy donors (CAM-101). Because Cambium's proprietary manufacturing process depletes pooled human platelet lysates of fibrinogen (the key clotting protein in platelets), the remaining product contains enriched levels of several key nutritive and regenerative components than are normally found in non-standardized AST as well as healthy tear film.

Given the multi-factorial nature of DED, the enriched levels of numerous key nutritive components in CAM-101 may well prove to be superior to artificial tears and certain single active ingredient products which treat only one cause or contributor of dry eye (e.g., inflammation) and other forms of tear deficiency.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with ocular treatment-related adverse events as assessed by CTCAE v4.0 [ Time Frame: 42 Days ]

    To evaluate the safety and tolerability of two concentrations of CAM-101 (FD hPL 10 vol/vol % and 30 vol/vol %) topical ophthalmic solution in patients with dry eye disease (DED) secondary to graft versus host disease (GvHD) after 6 weeks (42 days) of treatment.

    The primary outcome measure:

    Percentage of patients in each dose group with ocular adverse events at Day 42


  2. Number of participants with systemic treatment-related adverse events as assessed by CTCAE v4.0 [ Time Frame: 42 Days ]

    Number of participants with ocular treatment-related adverse events as assessed by CTCAE v4.0 To evaluate the safety and tolerability of two concentrations of CAM-101 (FD hPL 10 vol/vol % and 30 vol/vol %) topical ophthalmic solution in patients with dry eye disease (DED) secondary to graft versus host disease (GvHD) after 6 weeks (42 days) of treatment.

    The primary outcome measure:

    Percentage of patients in each dose group with systemic adverse event at Day 42


  3. Number of participants with treatment-related adverse events as assessed by CTCAE v4.0 [ Time Frame: 42 Days ]

    To evaluate the safety and tolerability of two concentrations of CAM-101 (FD hPL 10 vol/vol % and 30 vol/vol %) topical ophthalmic solution in patients with dry eye disease (DED) secondary to graft versus host disease (GvHD) after 6 weeks (42 days) of treatment.

    The primary outcome measure:

    The percentage of patients in each dose group that show a change from Normal to Abnormal with clinical significance in any ocular examination assessment at Day 42



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Efficacy as measured by change in corneal staining [ Time Frame: 42 Days ]

    To evaluate the preliminary efficacy of two concentrations of FD hPL (10 vol/vol % and 30 vol/vol %) to each other and to a vehicle control in the treatment of patients with DED secondary to GvHD as the result of allogeneic stem cell transplantation as measured by change in corneal staining:

    • Change from baseline in fluorescein corneal staining on Day 42
    • Change from baseline in lissamine green corneal staining on Day 42

  2. Efficacy as measured by ocular surface disease index (OSDI) [ Time Frame: 42 Days ]

    To evaluate the preliminary efficacy of two concentrations of FD hPL (10 vol/vol % and 30 vol/vol %) to each other and to a vehicle control in the treatment of patients with DED secondary to GvHD as the result of allogeneic stem cell transplantation as measured by ocular surface disease index (OSDI)

    Change from baseline in OSDI score on Day 42

    o The OSDI is assessed on a scale of 1-100 with higher scores representing greater disability The OSDI questionnaire includes total, visual-related function, and trigger subscales The Index is determined by multiplying the sum of the scores from each question by 25 and dividing the product by the number of questions answered.

    A continuum of scores from normal to dry has been developed


  3. Efficacy as measured by ocular discomfort using the 100 point visual analogue scale (VAS) scores [ Time Frame: 42 Days ]

    To evaluate the preliminary efficacy of two concentrations of FD hPL (10 vol/vol % and 30 vol/vol %) to each other and to a vehicle control in the treatment of patients with DED secondary to GvHD as the result of allogeneic stem cell transplantation as measured by ocular discomfort using the 100 point visual analogue scale (VAS) scores

    Change from baseline in ocular discomfort score as measured with VAS on Day 42VAS Patients will be asked questions about their current ocular discomfort by indicating from 0 (no discomfort) to 100 (maximal discomfort)
