Vevye now available in the U.S
Vevye (cyclosporine ophthalmic solution) 0.1%, a patented, non‑preserved, twice-daily (BID) dosed prescription drug based on a “water‑free” semifluorinated alkane eyedrop technology, is now available in the United States, according to a press release.
It is the first and only cyclosporine‑based product indicated for treating both the signs and symptoms of dry eye disease (DED).
“We are thrilled to announce the availability of VEVYE for our customers and their patients. Vevye is powered by the unique combination of the reliable and trusted active ingredient, cyclosporine, and a water-free semifluorinated alkane delivery vehicle, perfluorobutylpentane. We are excited to see Vevye’s exceptional clinical trial data come to life as U.S. dry eye disease patients are now able to access and experience a highly tolerable product that provides rapid onset of relief and sustained improvement of both signs and symptoms of dry eye disease. Because of Vevye’s unique combination of both a potent 0.1% cyclosporine solute and a pH- and osmolarity-free semifluorinated alkane, Vevye is both evolutionary and revolutionary, solving an unmet need for eyecare professionals treating the tens of millions of American chronic dry eye disease sufferers,” said Mark L. Baum, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Harrow in the press release.
