Kala Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Kala) is a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company focused on innovative nanoparticle-based treatments for ocular diseases affecting both front and back of the eye. Kala leverages its proprietary mucus-penetrating particle (MPP) technology to develop topical ophthalmic formulations with enhanced delivery into ocular tissue by facilitating penetration through the tear film mucus. Kala’s lead program, a shelf-stable MPP nanosuspension of an ophthalmic corticosteroid, is in clinical trials for the treatment of post-surgical ocular inflammation, dry eye disease, and meibomian gland disease.
Kala is also advancing its novel, small molecule receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor (RTKi) program as a potential topical treatment of wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Beyond ophthalmology, Kala’s MPP technology has potential applications in women’s reproductive health, respiratory and gastrointestinal diseases, and other indications.
