Delivering drugs to eye compartments, slowly

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

Nearly 12 million intravitreal injections for ophthalmic disease were admistered to patients eyes in 2012, and the figure is a testament to the acceptability of the delivery method whose very concept once inspired gasps and doubts; still, meaningful improvements are almost certain to be welcome and reimbursed in the marketplace. GrayBug LLC is betting it can enhance the outcome of drugs injected into the eye by prolonging their release with a polymer-based delivery system that the firm expects to eventually be formulated as nanoparticles – the goal is to extend intervals between ocular medicine dosing to three months or longer, perhaps as long as six months, with reduced inflammatory effects.
