About Lifitegrast

Lifitegrast is an investigational novel small-molecule integrin antagonist that was "purpose-built" to meet several specifications that would make it an ideal dry eye therapy candidate.  It was chosen from over one thousand synthesized molecules for its ability to specifically and potently block the lymphocyte function-associated antigen-1/intercellular adhesion molecule (LFA-1/ICAM-1) interaction, a validated target in the chronic dry eye inflammatory cycle central to T-cell activation, proliferation, migration, and inflammatory cytokine release at sites of ocular surface stress.   Lifitegrast was engineered to provide good penetration into target periocular tissues, but low absorption into the systemic circulation, allowing for local delivery while minimizing adverse side effects.
