Sun Pharmaceutical Industries dicovered CEQUA®, a novel therapy for the treatment of dry eye disease.
CEQUA® (cyclosporine ophthalmic solution 0.09% w/v), calcineurin inhibitor immunomodulator which rises tear flow in patients with keratoconjunctivitis sicca (dry eye). It is a new clear preservative-free nanomicelle water solution that helps to improve the penetration of the active ingredient ciclosporin in ocular tissues.
CEQUA® is the first dry ophthalmic treatment delivered with nanoscale NCELL®* technology. This unique NCELL ®* Technology and formulation provides a better dose than cyclosporine emulsion 0.05 percent. It is suitable for patients with inflammatory dry eye disease (DED), the most common disease.
NCELL®* Technology makes use of new encapsulation that surrounds CEQUA® active ingredient ciclosporin allowing cyclosporine to pass through layer of the tear film and releases it into the tissues of the eye where it is most needed.
