Fluocinolone acetonide SR is under clinical development by EyePoint Pharmaceuticals and currently in Phase III for Retinopathy. According to GlobalData, Phase III drugs for Retinopathy does not have sufficient historical data to build an indication benchmark PTSR for Phase III. GlobalData uses proprietary data and analytics to create drugs-specific PTSR and LoA in the Fluocinolone acetonide SR LoA Report. Buy the report here.

GlobalData tracks drug-specific phase transition and likelihood of approval scores, in addition to indication benchmarks based off 18 years of historical drug development data. Attributes of the drug, company and its clinical trials play a fundamental role in drug-specific PTSR and likelihood of approval.

Fluocinolone acetonide SR overview

Fluocinolone acetonide (Iluvien, Medidur, Yutiq) is a glucocorticoid derivative. It is formulated as an injectable, non-erodible, intravitreal implant in a 36-month sustained-release drug delivery system. It is indicated for the treatment of vision impairment associated with chronic diabetic macular edema, considered insufficiently responsive to available therapies, for the treatment of diabetic macular edema in patients who have been previously treated with a course of corticosteroids and did not have a clinically significant rise in intraocular pressure, and for prevention of relapse in recurrent non-infectious uveitis affecting the posterior segment of the eye (NIPU). It is based on Durasert technology system and Medidur Delivery system and CONTINUOUS MICRODOSING technology.

Fluocinolone acetonide is under development for the treatment of posterior uveitis, non-infectious uveitis and diabetic macular edema. It was also under development for the treatment of retinal vein occlusion, retinitis pigmentosa, geographic atrophy (an advanced form of dry age-related macular degeneration), exudative age-related macular degeneration and osteoarthritis. It was under development for the treatment of posterior uveitis (intraocular route).
