Aflibercept biosimilar candidate shows comparable efficacy in nAMD
The phase 3 MAGELLAN-AMD clinical trial for proposed biosimilar to Aflibercept (Eylea) FYB203 met its primary efficacy endpoint, demonstrating comparable efficacy between FYB203 and the reference medicine in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD), according to a press release.
The primary endpoint measured the change in best-corrected visual acuity from baseline to after 8 weeks of treatment.
“We are delighted that our second project in the field of ophthalmology was able to impress in the clinical phase III MAGELLAN-AMD study. Given the extensive experience from FYB201, we are confident that we will also be able to make a high-quality and cost-effective biosimilar available with FYB203, thereby further expanding our strong position in the field of biosimilar development,” said Dr. Andreas Seidl, Formycon’s CSO, in the press release.
