Omeros is a Seattle-based biopharmaceutical company committed to discovering, developing, and commercializing small-molecule and protein therapeutics for large-market as well as orphan indications targeting inflammation, coagulopathies, and disorders of the central nervous system.
Our most advanced product candidates are derived from our proprietary PharmacoSurgery® platform designed to improve clinical outcomes of patients undergoing ophthalmological, arthroscopic, urological and other surgical and medical procedures. Our PharmacoSurgery platform is based on low-dose combinations of therapeutic agents delivered directly to the surgical site throughout the duration of the procedure to inhibit preemptively inflammation and other problems caused by surgical trauma and to provide clinical benefits both during and after surgery.
Omidria™ (phenylephrine and ketorolac injection) 1%/0.3%, the first commercial product from Omeros’ PharmacoSurgery platform, was approved by the FDA in May 2014. Omidria is also currently under review for marketing approval by the European Medicines Agency (EMA).
Omeros’ six other clinical programs are focused on schizophrenia, Huntington’s disease, and cognitive impairment; addictive and compulsive disorders; complement-related diseases; and preventing problems associated with surgical procedures. Two additional programs are expected to advance into the clinic next year – one for the control of blood loss during surgery or resulting from trauma and the second for the treatment of a wide range of addictions and compulsions as well as any movement disorder. Omeros also has a proprietary GPCR platform, which is making available an unprecedented number of new GPCR drug targets and corresponding compounds to the pharmaceutical industry for drug development.
