Arikayce is a formulation of the antibiotic amikacin that uses Insmed’s liposomal delivery system and is under development for the treatment of lung infections caused by NTM. These infections can present in a variety of patients, including those with cystic fibrosis, although Insmed is excluding these patients from its trials. Insmed has also conducted trials of Arikayce for the specific treatment of Pseudomonas aeruginosa lung infections in cystic fibrosis patients. However, this indication has been deprioritized in favor of further developing the drug for the NTM market opportunity.
