WATERTOWN, Mass., Nov. 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EyePoint Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: EYPT), a pharmaceutical company committed to developing and commercializing therapeutics to improve the lives of patients with serious eye disorders, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2022 and highlighted recent corporate developments.

“In the third quarter, we continued to execute on key catalysts across our clinical-stage pipeline with the initiation of two Phase 2 clinical trials studying EYP-1901 in wet AMD and NPDR, following our encouraging positive safety and efficacy Phase 1 data,” said Nancy Lurker, Chief Executive Officer of EyePoint Pharmaceuticals. “There is a great unmet need in wet AMD and NPDR for convenient, safe and efficacious long-acting treatment options that maintain the patient’s existing vision proactively. Bolstered by our strong balance sheet, we are well-positioned to advance EYP-1901 through these trials and explore its potential to significantly improve the lives of patients living with these serious eye disorders.”

Ms. Lurker continued, “Our commercial team delivered a strong quarter with $9.7 million in net product revenue, driven by strong customer demand for YUTIQ® by retinal specialists.”

R&D Highlights and Updates

  • The first patient was dosed in the Phase 2 PAVIA clinical trial of EYP-1901 for the treatment of NPDR in September 2022. This twelve-month, randomized, controlled trial is expected to enroll approximately 105 patients randomly assigned to one of two doses of EYP-1901 (approximately 2 mg or 3 mg), or to the control group receiving a sham injection. More information about the study is available at (identifier: NCT05383209).
  • The first patient was dosed in the Phase 2 DAVIO 2 clinical trial of EYP-1901 for the treatment of wet AMD in July 2022. This twelve-month, randomized, controlled trial is expected to enroll approximately 150 patients previously treated with a standard-of-care anti-VEGF therapy, randomly assigned to one of two doses of EYP-1901 (approximately 2 mg or 3 mg) or an aflibercept control. Topline data is expected in the fourth quarter of 2023. More information about the study is available at (identifier: NCT05381948).
  • The Company will be presenting data at the Retina Society 55th Annual Scientific Meeting in November 2022. Sunil Patel, M.D., Ph.D. will present an encore oral presentation of the EYP-1901 final twelve-month Phase 1 DAVIO results with an additional subset analysis of patients with no excess fluid at screening. Also, data from the YUTIQ® CALM registry study will be presented as a poster presentation by Pouya Dayani, M.D. titled “CALM: Retrospective Registry Study to Collect Real-World Data On the Fluocinolone Acetonide Intravitreal Implant 0.18 Mg For the Treatment of Chronic Non-Infectious Uveitis Affecting the Posterior Segment - Year 1 Update”. The CALM study is a Phase 4, multi-center registry study and a collaboration between EyePoint and the Cleveland Clinic.
  • Final twelve-month data from the Phase 1 DAVIO clinical trial of EYP-1901 for wet AMD was presented at the AAO 2022 Annual Meeting in September 2022 and topline data was presented at the ASRS 2022 Annual Meeting in July 2022. The data reinforced a positive safety and efficacy profile for EYP-1901 and showed no dose limiting toxicities, no reports of ocular serious adverse events (SAEs) and no drug-related systemic SAEs. There were no reported events of vitreous floaters, endophthalmitis, retinal detachment, implant migration in the anterior chamber, retinal vasculitis, or posterior segment inflammation. The data also confirmed stable best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) (-4.12 ETDRS letters), stable central subfield thickness (CST) on optical coherence tomography (OCT) (-2.76 μm), and a clinically significant 73% reduction in treatment burden (75% at six-months).

Recent Corporate Highlights

  • In October 2022, the Company and ImprimisRx mutually terminated an agreement for the commercialization of DEXYCU effective December 31, 2022. This is a result of the proposed “Medicare Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System and ASC Payment System Proposed Rule” published in the Federal Register by the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on July 26, 2022, not containing an extension of the pass-through payment period for DEXYCU® beyond December 31, 2022. The final rule was published on November 1, 2022, confirming that CMS will not extend pass-through reimbursement status for DEXYCU beyond December 31, 2022.
  • Karen Zaderej was appointed to the Company’s Board of Directors in July 2022. Ms. Zaderej brings more than 35 years of biopharmaceutical and medical device experience to the board, and currently serves as the President and CEO of AxoGen.

Operating expenses for the third quarter ended September 30, 2022 totaled $28.4 million versus $24.4 million in the prior year period, primarily driven by investment in personnel across the organization, including non-cash stock compensation, and ongoing clinical trial and development costs for EYP-1901.
