Generic Mitosol

There are no generic forms of Mitosol (mitomycin ophthalmic) available at this time. A generic version of this drug is not expected to become available until after the patents and exclusivity rights expire, which is not until February 2029. Although mitomycin ophthalmic is sometimes called the "generic name" for Mitosol, it is not a generic version of it.

 

Can I Buy Generic Mitosol?

Mitosol® (mitomycin ophthalmic) is a topical prescription medication used during glaucoma surgery. It belongs to a general group of medicines known as antineoplastic antibiotics.
 
Mitosol is made by Intas Pharmaceuticals, Ltd., for Mobius Therapeutics, LLC. It is currently under the protection of patents and exclusivity rights that prevent any generic Mitosol from being manufactured in the United States.
 

When Will a Generic Version be Available?

The first patent is set to expire in February 2029. This is the earliest predictable date that a generic version could become available.
 
However, other circumstances could come up to delay or shorten this exclusivity period. This could include things such as lawsuits or other patents for new Mitosol uses. Once the patent expires, there may be several companies that manufacture a generic Mitosol drug.
 

Is Mitomycin a Generic Mitosol?

No -- mitomycin is the active ingredient in Mitosol, not a generic version of it. What can be confusing is that the active ingredient of a drug is often referred to as the "generic name."
 
The generic name is different from a generic version of a medicine. In order for there to be a generic version, the original medicine must have gone off-patent and another company besides the original manufacturer must make the product.
