About Oyster Point Pharma, Inc.
Oyster Point Pharma is a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company
leveraging neuroscience to discover, develop, and commercialize novel
therapies to treat diseases with high unmet needs. The company’s initial
focus is to develop innovative therapeutics to treat the signs and
symptoms of Dry Eye Disease by stimulating the trigeminal
parasympathetic pathway to activate the glands and cells responsible for
tear film production, known as the Lacrimal Functional Unit. Oyster
Point is leveraging a class of molecules called nicotinic acetylcholine
receptor (nAChR) agonists to bind receptors on the trigeminal nerve,
accessible within the nose, to stimulate natural tear film production.
