Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a leading cause of visual impairment in the United States, and more than half of advanced AMD patients have the wet (exudative, neovascular) form of the disease. Currently available therapies targeting vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) have been shown to maintain and even improve visual acuity in wet AMD patients, including Roche / Genentech’s Avastin (bevacizumab), Roche / Genentech’s Lucentis (ranibizumab), Regeneron’s Eylea (aflibercept), and Novartis’s Beovu. Using national, longitudinal, patient-level U.S. claims data, this report examines recent trends in the management of wet AMD both for newly diagnosed patients and patients filling a prescription for a key therapy in the first six months of 2020.
