Overview

Anabasis is a private, Milan based, biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the development of innovative therapies for the eye.

The initial focus is NGF (Nerve Growth Factor) for the treatment of diseases affecting both the anterior part of the eye, such as neurotrophic keratitis (NK) and dry eye, as well as the posterior part of the eye such as glaucoma. These diseases can lead to severe vision loss and blindness.

In January 2011 Dompé Group, Italian leading biopharmaceutical company, became Anabasis’s parent company by acquiring 49% of its shares. Furthermore, in the same year, Dompé acquired the worldwide rights for the development and the commercialization of NGF for NK. This agreement provided Anabasis with the resources and the expertise needed to significantly grow the business and demonstrate efficacy of products through regulatory clinical development.

In February 2012 Dompé Group became the sole shareholder of Anabasis by acquiring the remaining 51% of its share capital.

Dompé’s headquarters now serve as the head office for Anabasis pharmaceutical operations.
