Ohr Pharma's eye drug fails main goal in mid-stage study

March 27 (Reuters) - Ohr Pharmaceutical Inc said its experimental eye drug failed the main goal in a mid-stage study as a combination therapy, sending the company's shares down 21 percent in premarket trading on Friday.

The study tested the drug, OHR-102, in combination with Roche Holding AG's Lucentis, in patients with the wet form of age-related macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in the elderly.
