Insmed Incorporated is a global biopharmaceutical company focused on the needs of patients with rare diseases. The company is advancing a global phase 3 clinical study of ARIKAYCE™ (liposomal amikacin for inhalation) in nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) lung disease, a rare and often chronic infection that can lead to progressive inflammation and lung damage. There are no currently approved treatments for NTM in the United States or European Union (EU). In the EU, the company has filed a marketing authorization application seeking approval of ARIKAYCE for use in patients with NTM, as well as in cystic fibrosis patients with Pseudomonas aeruginosa lung infections. Insmed’s earlier-stage pipeline includes INS1009, a nebulized prodrug formulation of treprostinil that the company is developing for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), a chronic, life-threatening disorder characterized by abnormally high blood pressure in the arteries between the heart and lungs. To complement its internal research, Insmed actively seeks in-licensing opportunities for a broad range of rare diseases. For more information visit www.insmed.com.
