CHMP recommends label expansion for Eylea

Europe's Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) recommends that the European Medicines Agency (EMA) approve Regeneron Pharmaceuticals' (REGN) Eylea (aflibercept) injection as a treatment for visual impairment due to diabetic macular edema (DME). Eylea is currently approved as a treatment for neovascular (wet) age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and macular edema following central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO).

Regeneron and Bayer Healthcare (BAYRY) (BAYZF) are collaborating on the global development of Eylea. Regeneron has exclusive rights to the product in the U.S. while Bayer Healthcare has the license for exclusive marketing rights ex. U.S. where the companies equally share the profits from Eylea sales. In Japan, Regeneron receives a percentage of net sales.

    The DME indication is very significant as it is the leading cause of blindness.
