Utilizing MiDROPS® for the Treatment of Autoimmune Uveitis

This study was to determine MiDROPS® ability to deliver cyclosporine A(CsA) to treat experimental autoimmune uveitis (EAU)

  • Abstract Title: Topical application of Cyclosporine-A-MiDROPS™ for treatment of Autoimmune Uveitis
  • Authors: Terry G Coursey, Phillip A Vanlandingham, Ashley K. Sparkes, Drew Wassel, Alexander B Quiambao, Didier J Nuno, Rafal Farjo
  • Published in: Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science 2019;60(9):790.
  • Summary: This study explores the use of cyclosporine A (CsA), formulated in MiDROPS®, for the treatment of experimental autoimmune uveitis (EAU) in a mouse model. The research compares the efficacy of CsA delivered through MiDROPS® against systemic administration and assesses its impact on preventing immune cell infiltration, reducing clinical severity, and preserving visual function.
  • Impact: The impact of this study lies in its potential to offer a novel therapeutic approach for autoimmune uveitis, a condition that can severely impair vision.

Exploring MiDROPS® for Topical Delivery of Lipophilic Compounds

This study explores the development and assessment of a comprehensive library of MiDROPS®, designed for the topical delivery of lipophilic small molecule agents into both the anterior and posterior segments of the eye.

  • Abstract Title: MiDROPS™ for Topical Delivery of Lipophilic Compounds to the Anterior and Posterior Segment of the Eye
  • Authors: Drew Wassel, Courtney Calbert, Didier Nuno, Alexander Quiambao, Jodi Green, Phillip Vanlandingham, A.J. Dockins, Ashley Sparkes, Eric Phelps, Mandy Lambros, Rafal Farjo
  • Published in: Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science 2016;57(12)
  • Summary: Leveraging Generally Regarded As Safe (GRAS) oils and surfactants already approved in FDA-regulated ophthalmic products, the research involved a high-throughput screening of over 30,000 formulations. This process identified a subset that spontaneously self-assembled into microemulsions, leading to the creation of a parent library consisting of 672 MiDROPS® formulations.
  • Impact: The successful formulation of numerous lipophilic agents within MiDROPS®, capable of delivering therapeutic levels of drugs to targeted ocular tissues, marks a significant advancement in the field of ophthalmology. The study demonstrates that these microemulsions can effectively transport medications to both anterior and posterior eye segments more efficiently than traditional delivery methods, with minimal ocular intolerance observed.
