FDA approves Regeneron drug for macular edema

BY Alaric DeArment

TARRYTOWN, N.Y. — The Food and Drug Administration has approved a drug for treating a complication of a disease that results from vein blockages in the eye.

Regeneron Pharmaceuticals announced the approval of Eylea (aflibercept) for treating macular edema following central retinal vein occlusion, or CRVO. Eylea already was approved for treating neovascular age-related macular degeneration, another eye disease.

"This second U.S. approval for Eylea provides physicians and patients with a new treatment option for the treatment of macular edema following CRVO," Regeneron chief scientific officer and Regeneron Labs president George Yancopoulos said.

Additionally, private-label continues to gain sales — and steal share — in each of three mass-market pizza segments: frozen pizza, pizza products and refrigerated pizza. On store shelves, category growth is primarily on the natural and organic front: Among the top 12 frozen pizza manufacturers, significant growth has come only from Newman’s Own and Amy’s Kitchen, Packaged Facts found.
