Otonomy Technology

To overcome many of the limitations of delivering drugs to the ear, we utilize various formulation technologies to provide sustained drug exposure from a single local administration.

Potential benefits of this approach include:

  • Single local administration.
  • High drug levels in the target location and minimal systemic exposure.
  • No need for the patient to remain in a prone position for an extended period of time.
  • Simple office-based administration by the ENT.
  • No patient compliance concerns.

This approach is covered by a broad patent estate and is being utilized to develop a pipeline of products addressing important unmet medical needs including Ménière’s disease, hearing loss, and tinnitus.
