Intarcia Therapeutics, Inc., is a rapidly emerging biopharmaceutical company committed to developing innovative therapies that merge medicine with technology.

At Intarcia, we seek to transform the standard of care and improve patient outcomes in major therapeutic categories for serious chronic diseases, such as diabetes. We successfully completed our Phase 3 clinical trial program for our lead product, ITCA 650, and submitted our New Drug Application filing in the U.S. in 2016.

Additionally, we are developing a pipeline of products for our proprietary Medici Drug Delivery System, comprised of three unique technologies: 1) A stabilization technology that allows for proteins, peptides, antibody fragments, and other highly potent small molecules to be stabilized at or above human body temperatures for up to three years or more; 2) A matchstick-sized osmotic mini-pump that is placed just under the dermal layer of skin to deliver a continuous and consistent flow of medication; and 3) A placement technology including proprietary tools designed to provide an optimal user experience.

We Are Growing

Since our 2012 round of financing, much progress has taken place at Intarcia, including significant enhancements to our world-class manufacturing facility, the opening of our new headquarters in Boston's Innovation Center, and the diversification of expertise on our Board of Directors and Leadership Team through new senior leaders who contribute vital new capabilities and experiences.

A key element of pride during our progress has been our ability to remain fully independent throughout our rounds of financing so that we continue to have full strategic and executional control over all aspects of our rapidly evolving business. While we are always accountable to our stakeholders, we are - and intend to remain - the driving vision and force behind our progress and our ultimate success.
