The wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) market in the United States is unique in that it is dominated by 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, all of 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 product launches.
