EyePoint Pharmaceuticals, a Massachusetts-based company, revealed exciting news on Monday regarding the second-phase trial of its investigational treatment for macular degeneration. The phase 2 DAVIO 2 trial of EYP-1901, a sustained delivery maintenance treatment for wet age-related macular degeneration, demonstrated positive top-line results and successfully met its primary endpoint.
Combining Vorolanib and Durasert E
This innovative treatment involves combining vorolanib, a selective tyrosine kinase inhibitor, with bioerodible Durasert E. The trial also achieved noteworthy secondary endpoints, including a remarkable 80% reduction in treatment burden and nearly two-thirds of participants being able to go supplement-free for up to six months. Additionally, over 80% of participants received either zero or only one supplement within the six-month period.
Looking Ahead: VERONA Trial
EyePoint Pharmaceuticals is not slowing down and has its sights set on reaching other clinical milestones with its treatment. The company is set to initiate the phase 2 VERONA trial in diabetic macular edema, projected to commence early next year. This exciting development marks another step forward in advancing the field of ophthalmology.
