  • About EYLEA™ (aflibercept injection)Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) is a naturally occurring protein in the body.  Its normal role in a healthy organism is to trigger formation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis) supporting the growth of the body's tissues and organs.  However, in certain diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration, it is also associated with the growth of abnormal new blood vessels in the eye, which exhibit vascular permeability and lead to edema.  

    EYLEA, also known as VEGF Trap-Eye, is a fully human fusion protein, consisting of portions of VEGF receptors 1 and 2, that binds all forms of VEGF-A along with the related Placental Growth Factor (PlGF).  EYLEA is a specific and highly potent blocker of these growth factors.  EYLEA is specially purified and contains iso-osmotic buffer concentrations, allowing for injection into the eye.

    Regeneron and Bayer HealthCare are collaborating on the global development of EYLEA for the treatment of neovascular age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD), central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO), diabetic macular edema (DME), and other eye diseases and disorders.  Bayer submitted an application for marketing authorization in Europe in wet AMD in June 2011.

    Bayer HealthCare will market EYLEA™ (aflibercept injection) outside the United States, where the companies will share equally the profits from any future sales of EYLEA.  Regeneron maintains exclusive rights to EYLEA in the United States.
