Eyevance Pharmaceuticals announced that its anti-fungal ophthalmic medication, Natacyn (natamycin ophthalmic suspension 5%), is now available for next-day delivery.
Natacyn, which Eyevance acquired from Novartis in 2019, is indicated for the treatment of fungal blepharitis, conjunctivitis, and keratitis caused by susceptible organisms including Fusarium solani keratitis. It is the only FDA-approved anti-fungal medication, and is listed on the World Health Organization’s list of essential medicines.
Natacyn is now available next day when a physician prescribes to specialty pharmacy NatacynRARX or calls 1-866-NATACYN. When prescribed by 5 pm central time, Natacyn will be shipped overnight via FedEx the next afternoon to the patient at no additional cost.
“We know fungal infections don’t happen very often, but when they do, having Natacyn available quickly is critical,” according to Eyevance, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Santen. “Natacyn is thankfully now available the next day for these patients and to the ECPs who prescribe it.”
