iSTAR Medical, founded in 2011 and headquartered in Wavre, Belgium, is a clinical-stage, medical technology company focused on the development of novel ophthalmic implants for patients with glaucoma.
Glaucoma is the second leading cause of adult blindness globally, affecting more than 90 million people. Micro-invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) is the most promising and fastest-growing therapeutic option in the treatment of glaucoma.
iSTAR’s lead product, MINIject ™, has been designed to be a best-in-class MIGS device. Data from its first-in-human STAR-I trial confirms that it is safe and highly effective in achieving significant IOP reduction, as well as easing medication burden in glaucoma patients. Several additional studies are in progress to support iSTAR’s market entry plans into Europe and the United States.
