Regeneron's Eylea Now Captures One-Quarter Of Wet AMD Patient Share, Surpassing Share Of Roche/Genentech's Lucentis
Date:8/15/2013

EXTON, Penn., Aug. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BioTrends Research Group, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms for specialized biopharmaceutical issues, finds that surveyed retinal specialists/general ophthalmologists now treat 26 percent of their intravitreal pharmaceutically treated wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) patients with Regeneron's Eylea, a significant increase from one year ago. Eylea has been on the market since November 2011. In fact, patient share for Eylea now surpasses that for Roche/Genentech's Lucentis (21 percent), which has been available since 2006. However, off-label use of Roche/Genentech's Avastin continues to dominate the wet AMD market, largely due to its low cost relative to the other anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) agents and proven efficacy.

According to the TreatmentTrends®: Dry/Wet AMD (US) report, physician preference for Eylea is likely driven by its convenient twice monthly dosing frequency, which is supported by the finding that wet AMD patients receive significantly fewer Eylea injections than Avastin or Lucentis injections during the first two years of treatment. Data from the report also suggest that Eylea is moving up in the wet AMD treatment algorithm and is now the most preferred branded therapy indicated for the treatment of wet AMD, with Lucentis being the typical third-line treatment option.

"This shift in Eylea use is likely motivated by prescribers' high satisfaction with the agent and their positive perceptions related to its efficacy," said BioTrends Research Group Senior Business Insights Analyst Emma Williams, Ph.D. "These perceptions will contribute to the continued growth of Eylea patient share over the next six months and will trail only Avastin's patient share."
