Executive Summary

Epidemic keratoconjunctivitis is a viral eye infection caused by a number of different adenoviruses. The highly contagious disease causes inflammation of the cornea and conjunctiva, leading to irritation, itching, discharge and pain in the eye, swelling of the eyelids, photophobia, and blurred vision. These vision problems can last for months or even years in infected individuals. Adenovir Pharma AB aims to improve treatment of EKC with a “molecular wipe” that captures the virus and prevents it from binding to the surface of the eye.
