EYLEA Achieved Rapid, Sustained Outcomes in Wet AMD and DME1,2

The power with EYLEA delivered rapid and sustained outcomes in the largest phase 3 anti-VEGF clinical trials completed to date in Wet AMD (N=2412) with maintained visual acuity at 52 weeks and in DME (N=862) with improved visual acuity at 52 and 100 weeks.1-3

Proportion of Patients Who Maintained Vision (<15 letters lost) at 52 Weeks (primary endpoint) Based on BCVA,* as Measured by ETDRS Letters1,‡

VIEW 1 and VIEW 2 study designs: Two multicenter, double-masked studies in which patients with Wet AMD (N=2412; age range: 49-99 years with a mean of 76 years) were randomized to receive 1) EYLEA® (aflibercept) Injection 2 mg administered every 8 weeks following 3 initial monthly doses every 4 weeks; 2) EYLEA 2 mg administered every 4 weeks; 3) EYLEA 0.5 mg administered every 4 weeks; or 4) ranibizumab 0.5 mg administered every 4 weeks.

In both studies, the primary efficacy endpoint was the proportion of patients who maintained vision, defined as losing fewer than 15 letters of visual acuity at week 52 compared to baseline.

EYLEA was clinically equivalent to ranibizumab.

Modified quarterly dosing is not part of the recommended dosing for Wet AMD in the EYLEA Prescribing Information.1

  • The VIEW 1 Extension included patients switched at week 96 from the ranibizumab treatment arm in VIEW 15
  • VIEW 1 had fixed dosing through week 52, followed by modified quarterly dosing (at least every 12 weeks) through week 96. In the VIEW 1 Extension, all patients received EYLEA 2 mg on a modified quarterly dosing schedule (up to every 12 weeks) later amended to dosing at least every 8 weeks through week 2125

No new safety signals compared with the known safety profile of EYLEA in the Wet AMD population.5

VIEW 1 Extension study design: Prospective, open-label, single-arm, multicenter, long-term safety and tolerability study of patients who completed VIEW 1 through week 96 (n=323; mean age: 79). All patients received EYLEA 2 mg on a modified quarterly dosing schedule (maximum treatment interval: every 12 weeks) that was later amended to dosing at least every 8 weeks through week 212.

The primary endpoint was the safety and tolerability of EYLEA.

  • *Best-corrected visual acuity.
  • Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study.
  • Last observation carried forward; full analysis set (n=323).

VISTA and VIVID study designs: Two randomized, multicenter, double-masked, controlled studies in which patients with DME (N=862; age range: 23-87 years with a mean of 63 years) were randomized and received 1) EYLEA® (aflibercept) Injection 2 mg administered every 8 weeks following 5 initial monthly doses; 2) EYLEA 2 mg administered every 4 weeks; or 3) macular laser photocoagulation (control), at baseline and then as needed.

In both studies, the primary efficacy endpoint was the mean change from baseline in best-corrected visual acuity at week 52 as measured by Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study letter score.

  • *Best-corrected visual acuity.
  • Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study.
  • Last observation carried forward; full analysis set.
  • IISafety analysis set.
  • Following 5 initial monthly doses.
