InSite Vision to Advance new Ocular Anti-Inflammatory Candidate
Product News Dec 17, 2009
InSite Vision Incorporated announced plans to advance new development candidate ISV-303, a topical anti-inflammatory product intended to reduce the pain and swelling associated with ocular surgery.
InSite Vision formulated a lower concentration of bromfenac with its proprietary DuraSite® technology to create a proprietary therapeutic product. InSite Vision intends to advance ISV-303 into clinical studies pending the completion of Investigational New Drug-enabling toxicology studies in the first half of 2010.
“ISV-303 uses a lower concentration of an approved product and combines it with a commercially-proven technology to create a promising therapeutic that we believe will offer significant safety, efficacy and dosing advantages,” said Kamran Hosseini, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Medical Officer and Vice President, Clinical Affairs.
“Our DuraSite platform offers a number of therapeutic advantages, as has been demonstrated in two commercial products, AzaSite and Besivance, which leverage this technology. In preclinical studies, ISV-303 appears to offer compelling benefits that we hope will translate into an improved, easy-to-use eye drop to alleviate the pain and swelling associated with cataract surgery. We look forward to advancing this new development candidate into clinical trials next year.”
