About pSivida Corp.

pSivida Corp., headquartered in Watertown, MA, develops tiny, sustained
release, drug delivery products designed to deliver drugs at a controlled and
steady rate for months or years. pSivida is currently focused on treatment of
chronic diseases of the back of the eye utilizing its core technology systems,
Durasert™ and BioSilicon™, including Tethadur™. pSivida has instituted the
first of two planned pivotal Phase III clinical trials for its lead
development product, Medidur™, an injectable, sustained release micro-insert
for the treatment of posterior uveitis, a chronic back-of-the-eye disease.
ILUVIEN® for the treatment of chronic DME considered insufficiently responsive
to available therapies, which uses the same micro-insert at Medidur and is
licensed to Alimera Sciences, Inc., is marketed in the U.K. and Germany and
has also received marketing authorization in Austria, France, Portugal, and
Spain and is awaiting authorization in Italy. Alimera has filed for 10
additional EU country approvals through the Mutual Recognition Procedure.
Alimera is seeking approval of ILUVIEN in the U.S. An investigator-sponsored
clinical trial is ongoing for an injectable, bioerodible micro-insert to treat
glaucoma and ocular hypertension, a product candidate on which Pfizer, Inc.
has an option. pSivida’s FDA-approved Retisert®, licensed to Bausch & Lomb
Incorporated, provides long-term, sustained drug delivery to treat posterior
uveitis.
