Like other retinal disease therapy markets, the retinal vein occlusion (RVO) with macular edema (ME) market in the United States is unique in that it is dominated by Genentech’s Avastin, an oncology drug used off-label for RVO with ME, despite the availability of two effective approved therapies—Genentech’s Lucentis and Regeneron’s Eylea. These therapies, all of which target vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and have been shown to improve visual acuity in RVO with ME patients, compete directly for patient share. The intravitreal corticosteroid implant Ozurdex, also approved for RVO with ME, is an alternative option. As the RVO with ME pipeline becomes more active, it is essential to understand where the current players fit in the RVO with ME treatment algorithm.
