Topline phase 3 results show faricimab improves vision in RVO
Positive topline results from 2 phase 3 studies evaluating faricimab (Vabysmo) in macular edema due to branch and central retinal vein occlusion (BRVO and CRVO) show that faricimab improved vision, according to a press release.
In the BALATON and COMINO studies, patients treated with faricimab injections every 4 weeks for up to 24 weeks, achieved non-inferior visual acuity gains compared to those receiving aflibercept injections every 4 weeks.
“These encouraging data demonstrate that Vabysmo could potentially provide a new treatment option for people living with retinal vein occlusion, a serious retinal vascular condition that can lead to irreversible vision impairment or vision loss,” said Levi Garraway, MD, PhD, chief medical officer and head of Global Product Development, in a press release. “Today’s results add to the extensive evidence supporting Vabysmo’s efficacy in treating multiple types of retinal conditions. We look forward to submitting these data to regulatory authorities.”
