    Sustained drug delivery moving toward clinical use

     

    Zordera

    Zordera is an early stage university start-up. The goal is to commercialize novel thin-film polymer fabrication for glaucoma and other ophthalmic conditions.

    “In glaucoma, we have great drugs and patients are using them 50% of the time, maybe less,” said Co-Founder Robert Bhisitkul, MD, PhD, professor of clinical ophthalmology at the University of California, San Francisco. “We are creating tiny biodegradable films that I can inject in the office that give linear drug release over an extended period.”

    The new polymer uses pores matched to the drug to allow diffusion at a controlled rate. Results in animal trials show no evidence of cataracts, endophthalmitis, glaucoma, retinal degradation, or uveitis.
