Alimera Sciences Inc is a pharmaceutical company focused on commercializing and developing treatments that address diseases affecting the back of the eye (retina). ILUVIEN is Alimera's a patented micro-implant which delivers a continuous, low dose anti-inflammatory agent to the retina for up to 3 years. DME is often treated with acute therapies when the fluid in the eye returns. ILUVIEN reduces the recurrence of edema to stable vision, with the benefit of continuous treatment due to the product's novel drug delivery technology. The company expects to accelerate growth of ILUVIEN through increased penetration of existing markets; expansion into new markets; and a new indication for non-infectious posterior uveitis in the EU.
