LX211 is designed for use as an oral immune-modulatory agent to treat the forms of non-infectious uveitis that require systemic treatment, including posterior, intermediate and panuveitis
, allowing for tapering of systemic corticosteroids to 5 mg or less per day.
LX211 is a next-generation calcineurin inhibitor intended for the treatment of non-infectious posterior, intermediate and panuveitis
(an autoimmune disease characterized by chronic inflammation of the eye).
In another trial of 19 patients with severe endogenous anterior uveitis and panuveitis
(more than 50 anterior chamber cells) that did not respond to previous therapies, Durezol QID was effective in reducing anterior chamber cell, flare, and total sign and symptom scores.
Lux initially plans to develop an oral form of ISA247 as a potential treatment for posterior, intermediate and panuveitis
, a serious and potentially sight-threatening inflammatory disease of the eye.
