Acusphere, Inc.™ Company Profile

02:46 EST 25th November 2017 | BioPortfolio

Acusphere, Inc.™ is a specialty pharmaceutical company that develops new drugs and improved formulations of existing drugs using its proprietary porous microsphere technology. We are focused on developing proprietary drugs that can offer significant benefits such as improved safety and efficacy, increased patient compliance, greater ease of use, expanded indications or reduced cost. Our three initial product candidates are designed to address large unmet clinical needs within cardiology, oncology and asthma. Our lead product candidate is a cardiovascular drug in Phase 3 clinical development for the detection of coronary artery disease, the leading cause of death in the United States. We created our three initial product candidates using technology that enables us to control the size and porosity of microspheres in a versatile manner, so we can customize the microspheres to address the delivery needs of a variety of drugs. We are focused on creating porous microspheres that are smaller than red blood cells. Small microspheres are important for delivering drugs intravenously so that they can pass through the body's smallest blood vessels, for increasing the surface area of a drug so that the drug will dissolve more rapidly, and for delivering drugs to the lung via inhalation. Porosity is important for entrapping gases in microspheres, for controlling the release rate of the drug from a microsphere, and for targeting inhaled drugs to specific regions of the lung.
