About DuraSite®and DuraSite®2
While eye drops are a proven delivery mechanism for numerous ocular drugs, efficacy of these agents is impeded by tears and blinking, which rinse the drug from the surface of the eye and limit retention and absorption. InSite's DuraSite and DuraSite 2 platforms are sustained delivery technologies using a synthetic polymer-based formulation designed to extend the residence time of a drug relative to conventional topical therapies. DuraSite and DuraSite 2 enable topical delivery of a solution, gel or suspension and can be customized for delivering a wide variety of potential drug candidates. The DuraSite platform is currently leveraged in two commercial products for the treatment of bacterial eye infections, AzaSite® and Besivance®. InSite Vision is advancing a portfolio of novel preclinical- to clinical-stage ophthalmic products based on the DuraSite platform and anticipates advancing future ophthalmic product candidates using the DuraSite 2 platform.
About InSite Vision
InSite Vision is advancing new ophthalmologic products for unmet eye care needs based on its innovative DuraSite platform technologies. The DuraSite and DuraSite 2 drug delivery systems extend the duration of drug retention on the surface of the eye, thereby reducing the frequency of treatment and improving the efficacy of topical drugs.
The DuraSite platform is currently leveraged in two commercial products for the treatment of bacterial eye infections, AzaSite® (azithromycin ophthalmic solution) 1%, marketed in the U.S. by Merck, and Besivance® (besifloxacin ophthalmic suspension) 0.6%, marketed by Bausch + Lomb. InSite Vision is also advancing three novel ophthalmic therapeutics through Phase 3 clinical studies: AzaSite Plus™ and DexaSite™ for the treatment of eye infections, and BromSite™ for pain and inflammation associated with ocular surgery.
