About Optigo Biotherapeutics
Optigo Biotherapeutics is an innovative pre-clinical stage biotherapeutics company working to develop cutting-edge treatments to address vision loss from chronic ophthalmic diseases, many of which are currently treated by monthly or bimonthly injections of drugs into the eye(s) by a retina specialist.
We believe that by reducing the frequency at which each dose of drug is delivered, we will reduce the inconvenience, discomfort, risk and expense of existing treatments. In doing so, we hope to reduce the number of patients dropping out of their treatment cycles or having to skip doses due to inconvenient timing. Optigo Bio’s therapies for Age-related Macular Degeneration and Diabetic Retinopathy aim to prevent vision loss from these blinding retinal diseases with far fewer injections into the eye.
The Optigo Bio logo was inspired directly by the novelty of our product. The logo is comprised of a circle that represents the retina, which is at the very core of our therapy. The circle is made up of 12 distinct segments, each of which represent one monthly injection of medication into the eye. Our mission is to reduce the frequency of risky, expensive, and burdensome injections from once every 1 to 3 months to once every 12 months. Of these 12 segments, one is “Dark” blue and the remaining 11 are “Light” blue. The dark blue segment represents our product. A single injection delivered once a year. A convenient and effective solution for lifetime better vision.
