According to reports on WebMD.com, Swedish pharmaceuticals company Adenovir Pharma is conducting trials on an eye drop called ADP-209 that may finally provide treatment for those suffering from viral conjunctivitis. The treatment targets several adenoviruses which are responsible for most cases of pink eye and creates an artificial surface on the conjunctiva, preventing the virus from binding to the eye and allowing it to be washed away by tears. While the treatment has so far only been tested on animals, results have been promising and Adenovir Pharma is currently working on the next stage of clinical trials.
Conjunctivitis is rarely serious, but complications of pink eye can include corneal inflammation which may affect vision. Symptoms that should be brought to a doctor’s immediate attention include: decreased or blurred vision that does not clear with blinking, continuous or increasing eye pain, a developing sensitivity to light and persistent symptoms that become increasingly more severe or frequent over time.
