Regeneron Highlights EYLEAA® (aflibercept) Injection Data To Be Presented At American Academy Of Ophthalmology Annual Meeting

TARRYTOWN, N.Y., Nov. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: REGN) today announced that data from several studies of EYLEA ® (aflibercept) Injection will be presented during the annual meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) to be held November 16-19 in New Orleans.  EYLEA presentations will be featured during the AAO scientific sessions ( November 16-19), as well as during the Retina Subspecialty Days ( November 15-16).

During the Retina Subspecialty Days, detailed results from the Phase 3 VIBRANT study of EYLEA in Macular Edema following BRVO will be presented for the first time.  Retinal vein occlusion is a common cause of vision loss in the elderly and the second most frequent major retinal vascular disease.(1)
