About Aldeyra Therapeutics
Aldeyra Therapeutics is developing next-generation medicines to improve the lives of patients with inflammatory diseases. Aldeyra's lead product candidate, reproxalap, is a first-in-class treatment in late-stage development for dry eye disease and other forms of ocular inflammation. The company is also developing other product candidates for systemic inflammatory disease. Aldeyra intends to commercialize its products directly and through collaborations that expand global reach. None of Aldeyra's product candidates have been approved for sale in the U.S. or elsewhere.

About Dry Eye Disease
Dry eye disease is a common and chronic inflammatory disease estimated to affect approximately 20 million people in the United States, and is characterized by insufficient moisture in the anterior surface of the eye, leading to dryness, inflammation, pain, discomfort, irritation, and, in severe cases, decreased vision. Among physicians and patients, existing therapy for dry eye disease is generally regarded as inadequate. In patients with dry eye disease, pro-inflammatory aldehyde mediators may contribute to ocular inflammation. By diminishing aldehyde levels, Aldeyra's topical ocular aldehyde trap platform represents a novel and differentiated approach for the treatment of dry eye disease.

About Allergic Conjunctivitis
Allergic conjunctivitis is a common allergic disease that affects 20% or more of the population worldwide. The disease is thought to be mediated in part by pro-inflammatory aldehydes, and is characterized by inflammation of the conjunctiva (a membrane covering part of the front of the eye), resulting in ocular itching, excessive tear production, lid swelling, and redness. Treatment of the symptoms of allergic conjunctivitis often involves antihistamines, the use of which is limited, in part due to ocular dryness and the lack of sustained activity.
