, a pharmaceutical company committed to developing and commercializing therapeutics to help improve the lives of patients with serious eye disorders, today announced that a late-breaking abstract highlighting 12-month data from the Phase 1 DAVIO clinical trial evaluating EYP-1901 for the treatment of wet age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD) has been selected for presentation at the American Society of Retinal Specialists (ASRS) 2022 Annual Meeting to be held in New York City from July 13 - 16, 2022.
Presentation details are as follows:
Presentation Title: 12-Month Results of EYP-1901 Vorolanib in a Bioerodible Durasert
Insert for nAMD: The DAVIO Trial
Session Title: Wet AMD 2 Symposium
Date and Time: Friday, July 15, 2022 at 8:00 - 9:10 a.m. ET
Presenter: Rishi Singh, M.D.
The Phase 1 DAVIO trial is an open-label, dose escalation clinical trial of EYP-1901 that enrolled 17 patients with previously treated wet AMD. EYP-1901 is an investigational sustained delivery anti-VEGF treatment utilizing a bioerodible formulation of EyePoint's Durasert [(R)] drug delivery technology that has been used in four FDA-approved products, including EyePoint's YUTIQ [(R)] for the treatment of chronic non-infectious uveitis affecting the posterior segment of the eye.
EYP-1901 is being developed as an investigational sustained delivery treatment, initially in wet age-related macular degeneration combining a bioerodible formulation of EyePoint's proprietary Durasert [(R)] delivery technology with vorolanib, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor. Positive interim eight-month safety and efficacy data from the ongoing DAVIO Phase 1 clinical trial of EYP-1901 showed no reports of ocular or drug-related systemic SAEs and no dose limiting toxicities with stable visual acuity and OCT. Further, 53% and 41% of eyes did not require any supplemental anti-VEGF injections up to six and nine months, respectively, following a single dose of EYP-1901. Phase 2 clinical trials are planned for wet AMD in Q3 2022 and in diabetic retinopathy in 2H 2022. Vorolanib is licensed to EyePoint exclusively by Equinox Sciences for the localized treatment of all ophthalmic diseases.
