Datapoint: Eylea Scores Pediatric Retinopathy Nod

The FDA last week approved Regeneron Pharmaceuticals’ Eylea for the treatment of retinopathy of prematurity, one of the most common causes of childhood blindness, in preterm infants. The blockbuster injectable is now the only therapy approved in this space. Eylea, a VEGF inhibitor, was first approved in 2011 for the treatment of macular degeneration, an indication for which it holds covered or better status for 95% of all insured lives under the medical benefit. About 68% of insured lives have covered access to Eylea with utilization management restrictions, such as prior authorization and/or step therapy, applied.
