Business Description

Industry: Drug Manufacturers » Drug Manufacturers - Major
Compare: » details
Traded in other countries:ASZ.Germany,
Alimera Sciences Inc is a Delaware corporation incorporated on June 4, 2003. The Company together with its subsidiaries is engaged in the research, development and commercialization of prescription ophthalmic pharmaceuticals. Its only commercial product is ILUVIEN, which has received marketing authorization in Austria, the United Kingdom, Portugal, France, Germany and Spain, and has been recommended for marketing authorization in Italy, for the treatment of vision impairment associated with chronic diabetic macular edema (DME) considered insufficiently responsive to available therapies. ILUVIEN is the first product approved for chronic DME in the United Kingdom and European Union. ILUVIEN has not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. ILUVIEN is an intravitreal implant providing a therapeutic effect for up to 36 months in the treatment of vision impairment associated with chronic DME by delivering sustained sub-microgram levels of FAc, a non-proprietary corticosteroid. Intravitreal refers to the space inside the eye behind the lens that contains the jelly-like substance called vitreous. DME is a disease of the retina which affects individuals with diabetes and can lead to severe vision loss and blindness. ILUVIEN is inserted in the back of the patient's eye in a non-surgical procedure using a sterile preloaded applicator employing a 25-gauge needle, which allows for a self-sealing wound. This procedure is very similar to the administration of an intravitreal injection, a procedure commonly employed by retinal specialists. The majority of its sales have been in Germany. The Company faces competition from pharmaceutical companies, specialty pharmaceutical companies and biotechnology companies. The manufacture and packaging of pharmaceutical products such as ILUVIEN are subject to the requirements of the FDA and similar foreign regulatory entities.
