Business Description

Industry: Drug Manufacturers » Drug Manufacturers - Major
Compare: » details
Traded in other countries:ASZ.Germany
Alimera Sciences, Inc., was incorporated in Delaware on June 4, 2003. It is a biopharmaceutical company that is engaged in the research, development, and commercialization of ophthalmic pharmaceuticals. The Company presently focuses on diseases affecting the back of the eye, or retina, which are well treated with current therapies. Its advanced product candidate is ILUVIEN, an intravitreal implant providing a therapeutic effect for up to 36 months in the treatment of vision impairment associated with DME by delivering sustained sub-microgram levels of FAc, a non-proprietary corticosteroid with demonstrated efficacy in the treatment of ocular disease. ILUVIEN is implanted in the back of the patient's eye in a non-surgical procedure using an implantation device (the ILUVIEN applicator) employing a 25-gauge needle, which allows for a self-sealing wound. Intravitreal refers to the space inside the eye behind the lens that contains the jelly-like substance called vitreous. In September 2010, the company completed its FAME Study, two Phase 3 pivotal clinical trials on both ILUVIEN and a higher dose FAc intravitreal insert involving 956 patients in sites across the U.S., Canada, Europe and India to assess the efficacy and safety of ILUVIEN in the treatment of DME over a 36 month period. It owned or has licensed four U.S. utility patents, one U.S. design patent and five U.S. patent applications. The Company faces competition from pharmaceutical companies, specialty pharmaceutical companies and biotechnology companies worldwide. The research, testing, manufacturing and marketing of drug products are subject to extensive regulation by U.S. federal, state and local government authorities, including the FDA and similar entities in other countries.
