Altacor is a Cambridge-based company that is building a portfolio of differentiated ophthalmic products for the European market.
Altacor's two prescription products for dry eye (Clinitas and Clinitas Gel) are recommended by ophthalmologists. These products are Drug Tariff Listed in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and included on the formulary of hospitals and PCTs across the country.
Clinitas is recognised as an effective treatment for patients with dry eye and is very cost-effective.
Regular treatment with eye drops specially formulated for dry eye would significantly reduce referrals to secondary care.
Dry eye is a common disorder that results from decreased tear production, excessive tear evaporation or abnormality in mucin or lipid components of the tear film.
