Teva Pharmaceutical - European Commission grants marketing authorization for Ranivisio, a biosimilar to Lucentis, for age-related macular degeneration the most common cause of blindness in developed countries

08/30/2022 | 09:02am EDT

TEL AVIV - Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. announces that the European Commission (EC) has granted a Marketing Authorization for Ranivisio (ranibizumab), a biosimilar of the ophthalmology treatment Lucentis across all five indications in adults for which Lucentisis authorized.

Richard Daniell, Executive Vice President, European Commercial, Teva Pharmaceuticals commented: 'With millions of people in Europe afflicted by this serious age-related eye condition this important milestone allows us, together with Bioeq, to bring ranibizumab to ophthalmologists and patients throughout Europe. The product is a welcome addition to Teva's growing biosimilars portfolio, and delivers on our mission to improve patient access to critical therapies while delivering vital savings to healthcare systems.'

Ranivisiois licensed in adults totreat age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and four other ophthalmology indications: visual impairment due to macular oedema secondary to retinal vein occlusion (branch RVO or central RVO), visual impairment resulting from diabetic macular oedema (DME), proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR), and choroidal neovascularisation (CNV).

Around 67 million people in Europe are affected by AMD. It is a leading cause of blindness for working age adults with uncontrolled diabetes3, and the most common cause of blindness in developed countries2. It is estimated that up to 77 million Europeans will be affected with AMD by 20504.

AMD is caused by excessive growth of blood vessels in the retina that leads to visual impairment and can even cause blindness. Ranibizumab inhibits vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), which is responsible for the excessive formation of these blood vessels in the retina5.

In the COLUMBUS-AMD study, a randomized, double-masked, parallel group, multi-centre phase III study6, ranibizumab was shown to be highly similar to its reference medicine in terms of clinical efficacy and ocular and systemic safety in the treatment of AMD and its other ophthalmology indications.

Ranivisio is a registered trademark of Bioeq AG, licensed by Teva Lucentis is a registered trademark of Genentech Inc.
