NovaBay Pharmaceuticals, an Emeryville, Calif.-based biotechnology company, has enrolled its first patients in a global Phase 2b clinical trial designed to test its Auriclosene Ophthalmic Solution as a treatment for a highly contagious form of pink-eye.

BAYnovation, the randomized clinical trial of a group of 450 patients with adenoviral conjunctivitis, will study the efficacy of the treatment that is the first of its kind worldwide.

The clinical results of BAYnovation are expected in late 2013.
