WATERTOWN, Mass., July 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — EyePoint Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

“EyePoint is helping to change the treatment paradigm of wet AMD using a ‘treat to maintain’ maintenance therapy approach with EYP-1901, an investigational sustained delivery anti-VEGF treatment,” said Nancy Lurker, Chief Executive Officer of EyePoint Pharmaceuticals. “We are excited to share updated pre-clinical and human data for EYP-1901 during our Investor Day, along with the 12-month DAVIO Phase 1 clinical trial data, which we just released last week at the American Society of Retinal Surgeons (ASRS) Annual Meeting.”

Investor Day will feature commentary from EyePoint’s management team as well as key opinion leader guest speakers, Carl D. Regillo, M.D., FACS, Professor of Ophthalmology, Thomas Jefferson University and Charles C. Wykoff, M.D., Ph.D., Director of Research, Retina Consultants of Texas.

Investor Day Highlights:

  • Nancy Lurker, Chief Executive Officer will present an overview of the Company.
  • Jay Duker M.D., Chief Operating Officer will present an overview of EYP-1901 using a bioerodible formulation of EyePoint’s proprietary Durasert® technology for sustained intraocular drug delivery, which has been safely administered to over 80,000 patients’ eyes across four U.S. FDA approved products.
  • Said Saim, Ph.D., Chief Technology Officer, will present an overview of EYP-1901 preclinical data, including its development and formulation and new pre-clinical data highlighting neuroprotection potential for EYP-1901.
  • Carl Regillo, M.D., FACS, Professor of Ophthalmology, Thomas Jefferson University, will present the 12-month safety and efficacy data from the Phase 1 DAVIO clinical trial evaluating EYP-1901 for the potential treatment of wet AMD that showed continued positive safety and efficacy for EYP-1901 including no serious ocular adverse events and 35% of patients out to 12 months with no supplemental anti-VEGF treatment after the initial EYP-1901 insert was administered.
  • Charles Wykoff, M.D., Ph.D., Director of Research, Retina Consultants of Texas, and Jay Duker M.D., Chief Operating Officer, will discuss the potential opportunity of EYP-1901 as a “treat to maintain” maintenance therapy for wet AMD.
  • Dario Paggiarino, M.D., Chief Medical Officer will present the EYP-1901 Phase 2 plans in wet AMD and NPDR with first patient dosing anticipated in Q3 2022. He will also provide an update on two ongoing Phase 4 studies for YUTIQ®, (fluocinolone acetonide intravitreal implant) 0.18 mg, for the treatment of chronic, non-infectious uveitis affecting the posterior segment of the eye.
  • George Elston, Chief Financial Officer, will provide a financial update on Q2 2022 performance with net product revenue of $11.3 million for the quarter and cash and investments of $171 million at June 30, 2022. He will also discuss the potential impact of the 2023 CMS Draft HOPPS (Hospital Outpatient) rule released last week in which CMS has indicated its intention not to provide further pass-through extension to expiring products, including DEXYCU. If the draft rule becomes final, DEXYCU will lose pass-through separate reimbursement status on December 31, 2022 and will instead be bundled into the general Cataract procedure reimbursement code starting on January 1, 2023.

The preliminary second quarter 2022 revenue results and cash and investments on hand included in this release were calculated prior to the completion of a review by the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm and are therefore subject to adjustment.

About EYP-1901

EYP-1901 is being developed as an investigational sustained delivery treatment, initially in wet age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD) combining a bioerodible formulation of EyePoint’s proprietary Durasert® delivery technology with vorolanib, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor. Positive twelve-month safety and efficacy data from the Phase 1 DAVIO clinical trial of EYP-1901 showed no reports of ocular or drug-related systemic serious adverse events and no dose limiting toxicities with stable visual acuity and OCT. Further, 53% of eyes did not require supplemental anti-VEGF injections up to six months following a single dose of EYP-1901. Phase 2 clinical trials for wet AMD (DAVIO 2) and non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy are expected to begin dosing patients in Q3 2022. A Phase 2 clinical trial is planned for diabetic macular edema in 2023. Vorolanib is licensed to EyePoint exclusively by Equinox Sciences for the localized treatment of all ophthalmic diseases.
