"These second year results confirm the sustainability of the vision gains achieved by EYLEA with a less than monthly dosing frequency. Importantly, the second year data demonstrated that for patients that needed more anti-VEGF treatment, this was achieved with fewer injections using EYLEA," said George D. Yancopoulos, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer of Regeneron and President of Regeneron Laboratories. "As a reminder, the recommended dose for EYLEA is 2mg every eight weeks following three initial monthly injections, which demonstrated visual acuity gains that were clinically equivalent to monthly ranibizumab. Retinal physicians and their wet AMD patients consider the predictable every eight week dosing regimen for EYLEA as a significant advance that helps overcome the challenges of monthly office visits."Further results from year two of the studies will be presented at upcoming medical conferences.
