Why AnestaGel

Why We Created AnestaGel

We identified the opportunity to make a better sustained release pain drug after we eluted colored water for over seven days from our Matrix™ BioHydrogel. After we did that, we knew we could pursue the perfect site specific, sustained release product for regional pain relief. AnestaGel could stay in place, elute for days, and hold a larger, non-toxic dose of the non-opiate drug, bupivacaine. We surveyed numerous physicians, and the overwhelming response to what we were doing confirmed our own beliefs: AnestaGel is what surgeons and anesthesiologists want for a post-operative analgesic.

Pain Management

Overview

According to The New Guidelines Released for Postoperative Pain Management, by Dr. Laurie Barclay and Pauline Anderson, acute postoperative pain is common, occurring in more than 80% of patients, with approximately 75% of these having moderate, severe, or extreme pain. Postoperative pain relief is inadequate in more than half of patients, which can negatively affect quality of life, function, and functional recovery, as well as increasing the risks for postsurgical complications and persistent postsurgical pain. Complications due to catheter placement for pain pumps, and patients self-medicating with opiates is not the answer. A site specific sustained release non-opiate drug, that lasts for at least 72 hours, with quick onset to get ahead of the pain curve and keep the nerve receptors disengaged is the answer.

Chronic Pain:

100

million Americans
suffer from chronic pain each year

Economic Impact:

$635 billion

The annual economic impact of pain in the U.S. is estimated to exceed $635 billion affecting more lives
than heart disease, diabetes and cancer combined.

Opioid Epidemic

Overview

Although opioids prove to be an effective treatment for pain management, the issues associated with opioid addiction continue to garner major focus. The need for a more effective, longer-lasting product for post-operative pain management is critical, and represents a significant positive behind the early commercial acceptance and success of Exparel®, despite its shortcomings, and in the development of, AnestaGel, which could be an effective non-opioid alternative in controlling surgical pain. Getting ahead of the pain curve and staying ahead of the pain curve for 72 hours is the key to reducing opioid use, especially in children, effectively eliminating the triggering of the opioid receptor.

Opioid Facts / Stats

  • 1

    Opiates were declared an epidemic by the Centers for Disease Control

  • 2

    Over 64,000 deaths were reported in 2016 due to drug overdoses.

  • 3

    On average, 115 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose.

  • 4

    40% of all opioid overdose deaths involve a prescription opioid.

  • 5

    Each year more than 70 million postsurgical patients receive opioids, and research shows 1 in 15 will go on to long-term use

  • 6

    In the U. S. there is a 55% increase in length of hospital stay due to opioid related AEs

  • 7

    A CDC study shows that even one-day prescriptions can lead to long-term abuse, and a full 30% of those given a month-long prescription developed opioid dependence.

What is AnestaGel

AnestaGel is a biocompatible drug, the consistency of gelatin, that is being explored for the use as injectable or spread by a surgeons hand and instruments into the target area of the body that would create post-surgical pain. AnestaGel then targets and binds to pain receptors so that patients could have near immediate pain-relief while lasting up to three days, or more. Unlike almost all other painkillers, AnestaGel is targeted for a specific region within the body, is designed to stay in that area, does not migrate to other regions of the body, and is easily metabolized* (*findings based on pre-clincial trials).

AnestaGel vs Opioids

Current Treatments

Overview

The current post-operative pain treatment options is dominated by opiates at 95% use and then other non-opioids make up 5%. Only one sustained release drug for post-operative has been cleared by the FDA. That drug is Exparel. While it does work, many clincal shortcomings have been reported in peer-reviewed, published journal articles. Based on our pre-clinical reports and surveying, we believe AnestaGel represents the product everyone wants, with the potential outcomes they expect from a sustained release drug.

Pre-Clinical GLP Study

Under the direction of Dr. Jake Hutchins, we compared AnestaGel™ to EXPAREL (Pacira, Inc.) in a GLP controlled pre-clinical study. Jake is the Director of the Regional Anesthesia Acute Pain and Ambulatory Surgery Division, and the Medical Director for the M Health Ambulatory Surgery Center, at the University of Minnesota. We found that:

300% Longer

Initial animal study revealed AnestaGel lasted up to 300% longer

8x More Capacity

AnestaGel carried 8 times more capacity

72+Hours

AnestaGel had full nerve block beyond 72 hours

Market Size

Insitu Biologics believes that AnestaGel can be in three distinct markets for perioperative
pain management

Surgical Site / Perioperative

Estimated 90 million surgical procedures in the US, resulting in $10B of drugs / devices being sold in the US

Peripheral Nerve Block

This occurs in the majority of surgical procedures, and is a product market that is estimated to grow to $20B by the Year 2025

Epidural

Estimated 2.5M procedures in the US and a product market estimated at $1B

Animal Market

InSitu Biologics intends to pursue a strategic licensing transaction with a worldwide Animal Care Company that it believes could be of significant financial benefit to the Company. The global pet care market is expected to reach USD 202.6 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Rise in the adoption of pets and growing demand for premium care products, and veterinarian care are a few factors expected to drive market growth.

Animal Market Opportunity - AniGel SR

We believe that AniGel SR, composed of our Matrix Technology and our proprietary mix of bupivacaine, could be brought to the rapidly expanding $200B+ annual Worldwide Animal Health market in the very near future by the right commercial partner. A few examples of those surgical procedures include:

The combined surgical market for the three segments above represents over 50,000,000 surgeries annually, at a projected ASAP of $75- $100 for Canine and Feline, and $275 for Equine.

In just two years, an estimated 14,000 of the 98,000 veterinarians in the US have been trained on the use of Nocita, an analgesic extending liposome injection. AniGel has soundly outperformed Nocita in head to head tests measuring pain relief and the level of non-toxic pain relief medicine in the bloodstream.

“ As a high volume surgeon I use EXPAREL all of the time; but as a user, we know its performance varies from patient to patient. When I saw the work that was being done on Matrix BioHydrogel, I had to get involved. AnestaGel™ is the product I wanted from the start. That’s why I am a shareholder. ”

What's Next?

It is very rare that an early stage financial opportunity in an easy to understand product is presented for investment to the general public. While complex in its design, and intricate to make, we believe AnestaGel represents that rare case for a potentially large return on investment, due to our low market capitalization in a large cap market. Our patent position and refinement of product components represent years of research and development being captured to bring AnestaGel to the market. Clinicians and surgeons across the country are preparing to change how they treat pain; AnestaGel is aiming to be in their repertoire of opioid alternatives as this change, which will take decades, begins.
