Santen and MacuSight Announce Collaboration and License Agreement for Sirolimus in Ocular Diseases and Conditions
Date:6/2/2008

olimus is a highly-potent, broad-acting compound that has demonstrated the ability to combat disease through multiple mechanisms of action including immunosuppressive, anti-angiogenic, anti-migratory, anti-proliferative, anti-fibrotic and anti-permeability activity. Based on the versatility associated with these multiple mechanisms of action, MacuSight believes that its sirolimus product may serve as a potentially highly-efficacious therapeutic for a wide range of ocular diseases and conditions, including the treatment and prevention of wet AMD and DME.

Phase 1 clinical trials in patients with wet AMD and DME have shown MacuSight's proprietary formulation of sirolimus to be safe and well-tolerated in all doses tested when delivered by either subconjunctival or intravitreal injection. Furthermore, patients who participated in these studies exhibited improvements in visual acuity that were consistent with anatomical retinal changes following a single administration of sirolimus.

About Wet Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of visual loss in the western world. This disease of the aging eye results in loss of the sharp, central vision that is necessary for clearly seeing objects and undertaking routine tasks including reading and driving. AMD occurs in both wet and dry forms, with the wet form accounting for the vast majority of cases of AMD-related blindness and progressing much more rapidly than dry.

About Diabetic Macular Edema

Diabetic macular edema (DME) is a serious manifestation of diabetic retinopathy that involves retinal swelling brought on by the leaking of fluid from small blood vessels within the macula. As the condition develops, central vision becomes blurred. DME can progress fairly rapidly and over just a few years can lead to permanent visual loss. There is a significant unmet need to both reverse the visual loss associated with DME and to help delay the
