Omeros is one of the first companies to recognize that, in a wide range of pathologic conditions, a combination of agents acting on multiple molecular targets is required for optimal therapeutic effect. Our PharmacoSurgery® commercial product OMIDRIA®(phenylephrine and ketorolac intraocular solution) 1%/0.3%, and product candidates are combinations of targeted therapeutic agents designed to modulate the molecular mechanisms of pathologic conditions rather than just treating their symptoms.
Surgical procedures cause extensive trauma at the surgical site. This trauma produces a complex cascade of molecular signaling and biochemical changes, resulting in a number of unintended problems. These problems are currently treated postoperatively in an attempt to "undo" them after they have started.
Omeros believes that there is a better way: deliver our PharmacoSurgery® products throughout the duration of surgical trauma directly to the surgical site and preemptively — before the problems can begin — to provide clinical benefits both during and after the procedure.
