In the U.S., Eylea is indicated to treat neovascular (wet) age-related macular degeneration (Wet AMD) with dosing options every 4 or 8 weeks following an initial monthly dosing period or 12 weeks after one year of effective therapy, and for all stages of diabetic retinopathy (DR) and Diabetic Macular Edema (DME) every 4 or 8 weeks, following an initial dosing period.
Vital Stats: Eylea (aflibercept) Injection is a vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) inhibitor formulated as an injection for the eye. It is designed to block the growth of new blood vessels and decrease the ability of fluid to pass through blood vessels (vascular permeability) in the eye by blocking VEGF-A and placental growth factor (PLGF), two growth factors involved in angiogenesis. In the U.S., EYLEA is the market-leading, FDA-approved anti-VEGF treatment for its approved indications and is supported by a robust body of research that includes eight pivotal Phase 3 trials.
