CYSTADROPS – PRACTICAL 4 TIMES A DAY DOSING

CYSTADROPS is the only viscous ophthalmic solution with practical, 4 times a day dosing for the depletion of corneal cystine crystals1

CYSTADROPS contains 0.37% of cysteamine (equivalent to 0.55% cysteamine hydrochloride). CYSTADROPS is formulated with carmellose sodium for greater viscosity.1

Cysteamine penetrates all layers of the cornea and converts cystine to cysteine and cysteine-cysteamine mixed disulfides which can then exit the lysosome. As a result, corneal cystine crystal accumulation is reduced over time with continued use.1,2

CYSTADROPS EFFICACY

CYSTADROPS DEMONSTRATED A SIGNIFICANT REDUCTION IN CORNEAL CYSTINE CRYSTAL DEPOSITS WITH 4X/DAY DOSING1,2

  • The average reduction in IVCM total score was 4.6 in the CYSTADROPS arm and 0.5 in the control arm,
    mean difference 3.8 (95% CI; p<0.0001)1,2

IVCM TOTAL SCORE REDUCTION FROM BASELINE2,5

IVCM Total Score

CYSTADROPS DECREASED CYSTINE CRYSTALS IN ALL LAYERS OF THE CORNEA AS MEASURED BY IVCM TOTAL SCORE1,2

IVCM SCORE IN EACH LAYER OF THE CORNEA AT DAY 1, DAY 30, AND DAY 902

IVCM Cornea Layers

CRYSTAL DENSITY ASSESSMENT:

  • Each layer of the cornea was graded on a scale from 0 to 43
  • Higher scores designated larger amounts of crystal deposits; a decrease in IVCM total score indicated a reduction in corneal crystals3
  • IVCM score was assessed for each layer of the eye at day 1 (baseline), day 30, and day 902

CYSTADROPS MAINTAINED EFFICACY OVER 5 YEARS1,5

CYSTADROPS SAFETY PROFILE1

The most common adverse reactions (≥ 10%) reported during clinical trials were:

  • Eye pain
  • Vision blurred
  • Eye irritation
  • Ocular hyperaemia
  • Instillation site discomfort
  • Eye pruritus
  • Lacrimation increased
  • Ocular deposits

INDICATIONS AND IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Important Safety Information

  • To minimize the risk of contamination, do not touch the dropper tip to any surface. Keep bottle tightly closed when not in use.
