Germany's G-BA Confirms That ThromboGenics' JETREA® Demonstrates Significant Therapeutic Benefits For Vitreomacular Traction (VMT) Patients, Including When Associated With Macular Hole

About ThromboGenics

ThromboGenics is an integrated biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing innovative ophthalmic and oncology medicines. The Company's lead product, JETREA ® (ocriplasmin), has been approved by the US FDA for the treatment of symptomatic VMA and was launched in January 2013.  

ThromboGenics signed a strategic partnership with Alcon (Novartis) for the commercialization of JETREA ® outside the United States. Under this agreement, ThromboGenics could receive up to a total of €375 million in up-front and milestone payments. It will receive significant royalties from Alcon's net sales of JETREA ® .

In Europe, JETREA ® is approved for the treatment of vitreomacular traction (VMT), including when associated with macular hole of diameter less than or equal to 400 microns. Alcon has launched JETREA ® in the UK, Germany, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Sweden.  

ThromboGenics is also further exploring anti-PIGF (Placental Growth Factor), also referred to as TB-403, for the treatment of ophthalmic and oncology indications.

About German Federal Joint Committee (Gemeinsamer Bundesausschuss ,  G-BA)

The Federal Joint Committee (G-BA) is the supreme decision-making body of the so-called self-governing system in Germany. Physicians, dentists, hospitals, sickness funds and patients are represented in the G-BA. The G-BA issues directives and thus determines the benefit package of the statutory health insurance (GKV) covering about 70 million people. Finally, the G-BA is responsible for reimbursement decisions in the GKV. The directives issued by the G-BA are legally binding for insured people as well as for the providers and payers of health care: physicians, hospitals and sickness funds. They are valid for ambulatory treatment, dentistry, hospital care and psychotherapy. Furthermore, the directives define the provision and reimbursement of pharmaceuticals, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, medical devices and non-medical treatment. In addition, the G-BA has responsibilities regarding quality assurance measures for in- and out-patient care.
