EyePoint Pharmaceuticals Reports Positive Masked Safety Update for Lead Product Candidate EYP-1901 in Ongoing PAVIA and DAVIO 2 Phase 2 Clinical Trials as of September 1, 2023
- Interim analysis of masked data shows EYP-1901 is well tolerated with no reported drug-related ocular or systemic serious adverse events in Phase 2 PAVIA clinical trial in non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy -
- Updated interim analysis of masked safety data of Phase 2 DAVIO 2 trial in wet AMD continues to show a positive safety profile with no reported drug-related ocular or systemic SAEs -
- Company remains on-track to report topline data for Phase 2 DAVIO 2 trial in
Approximately 170 patients have received EYP-1901 with a minimum of three months of follow-up post injection from the ongoing Phase 2 PAVIA and DAVIO 2 clinical trials and the completed DAVIO 1 trial with no reported drug-related ocular severe adverse events (SAEs) and no reported drug-related systemic SAEs.
“We remain very encouraged by the positive masked safety results that EYP-1901 has produced to-date in the 17 patients dosed in the Phase 1 DAVIO trial in wet AMD as well as approximately 150 additional patients in our two Phase 2 clinical trials: DAVIO 2 and
- Hemorrhagic posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) in a study eye eight weeks after dosing
- Macular edema leading to vision loss in the non-study fellow eye
DAVIO 2 is a randomized, controlled Phase 2 clinical trial of EYP-1901 in patients with previously treated wet AMD. All enrolled patients had been previously treated with standard-of-care anti-VEGF therapy and were randomly assigned to one of two doses of EYP-1901 (approximately 2 mg or 3 mg) or an aflibercept control. EYP-1901 is delivered with a single intravitreal injection in the physician's office, similar to current FDA approved anti-VEGF treatments. The primary efficacy endpoint of the DAVIO 2 trial is change in BCVA compared to the aflibercept control, six-months after the EYP-1901 injection. Secondary efficacy endpoints include change in CST as measured by optical coherence tomography (OCT), number of eyes that remain free of supplemental anti-VEGF injections, number of aflibercept injections in each group, and safety. More information about the trial is available at clinicaltrials.gov (identifier: NCT05381948).
EYP-1901 is being developed as an investigational sustained delivery treatment for retinal disease combining a bioerodible formulation of EyePoint's proprietary Durasert® delivery technology (Durasert E™) with vorolanib, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor. Positive safety and efficacy data from the Phase 1 DAVIO clinical trial of EYP-1901 in wet AMD showed a positive safety profile with stable visual acuity and OCT. Further, the data demonstrated an impressive treatment burden reduction of 75% at six months and 73% at the 12-month visit following a single dose of EYP-1901. Phase 2 trials are fully enrolled in wet AMD and non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy, and a diabetic macular edema trial is planned for initiation in Q1 2024. Vorolanib is licensed to EyePoint exclusively by Equinox Sciences for the localized treatment of all ophthalmic diseases.
