Allergan will present new data from investigational abicipar and bimatoprost sustained release (SR) at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) to be held in San Francisco, California. The Retina Subspecialty Day (October 11-12) will feature a late-breaker presentation on 2-year data from the CEDAR and SEQUOIA clinical studies of abicipar in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD). Data will also be presented during a paper session on October 14for bimatoprost SR, which has the potential to be a first-in-class sustained-release, biodegradable implant for the reduction of IOP in patients with ocular hypertension or open-angle glaucoma, including topline results from two phase 3 studies in open-angle glaucoma and ocular hypertension. Additional company-sponsored data will also be presented at the meeting as ePosters.
“The data presented at AAO for our late stage, investigational assets, abicipar and bimatoprost sustained-release, showcase our continued commitment to innovation in ophthalmology,” Yehia Hashad, MD, Senior Vice President, Head of Global Clinical Development Allergan, said in a company new release. “We’re excited to share data that may redefine treatment approaches in neovascular age-related macular degeneration and glaucoma, and may improve upon the current state of patient care.”
Allergan will present four abstracts, including two oral presentations and two ePoster presentations (all noted in local Pacific Time):
