Aflibercept is under clinical development by Regeneron Pharmaceuticals and currently in Phase II for Optic Neuropathy. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Optic Neuropathy does not have sufficient historical data to build an indication benchmark PTSR for Phase II. GlobalData uses proprietary data and analytics to create drugs-specific PTSR and LoA in the Aflibercept LoA Report. Buy the report here.

GlobalData tracks drug-specific phase transition and likelihood of approval scores, in addition to indication benchmarks based off 18 years of historical drug development data. Attributes of the drug, company and its clinical trials play a fundamental role in drug-specific PTSR and likelihood of approval.

Aflibercept overview

Aflibercept (Eylea / Eylea HD) is a recombinant fusion protein consisting of portions of human VEGF receptors 1 and 2 extracellular domains fused to the Fc portion of human IgG1. Eylea is formulated as an iso-osmotic injection solution for intravitreal route of administration. Eylea is indicated for treatment of neovascular (wet) age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD) and for the treatment of macular edema following central retinal vein occlusion. It is also indicated for non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR), diabetic macular edema(DME) and Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) in Patients with DME, for the treatment of choroidal neovascularization and macular edema secondary to branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO),  for the treatment of visual impairment due to myopic choroidal neovascularization (myopic CNV), and all stages of non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy (DR), and thereby reduce the risk of blindness. It is based on trap technology.

Aflibercept is under development for the treatment of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), diabetic retinopathy, radiation retinopathy including maculopathy, optic neuropathy, non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR), acute thyroid eye disease and diabetic macular edema at high dose. The drug candidate was also under development for the treatment of corneal neovascularization. It is administered through intravitreal or parenteral or subconjunctival as a solution form.
