The wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) therapy market in the United States is unique given the dominance of Genentech’s Avastin, an oncology drug that is used off-label to treat wet AMD, despite the availability of two highly efficacious approved therapies—Genentech’s Lucentis and Regeneron’s Eylea. These current therapies, which target vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and have been shown to maintain and even improve visual acuity in wet AMD patients, compete directly for patient share. It is essential to understand the use of these agents in the nuanced wet AMD treatment algorithm ahead of anticipated launches of emerging products.
