Teleconference: Wet AMD Therapies - Lucentis Add-on and Replacement (10:00 AM EST)

Time & Location

Originally Presented: November 15, 2012 10:00 AM, Teleconference

Presenter(s):

GLG Expert Contributors

Agenda:

    Please note the time listed above is in EST. For European clients, this call will take place at 15:00 GMT. While Lucentis has been cannibalized by the off-label use of Avastin and taken a cut in price by the more recently approved Eylea, Fovista may prove to be a useful add-on. Combination therapy appears to be more effective than Lucentis alone. Meanwhile, Allergan and Molecular Partners are hoping to compete with Lucentis (and Avastin) more directly with DARPin (Designed Ankyrin Repeat Protein) therapies, whose long half-life and high potency may reduce injection frequency. Please join Dr. W. Lloyd Clark, Clinical Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology, at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine, and Dr. Sebastian Wolf, Director of the Department of Ophthalmology at the Inselspital University of Bern, as they share their insight on:
  • Ophthotech's Fovista Anti-PDGF Therapy
  • Impact of emerging therapies on approved/currently available therapies for wet AMD
  • Potential DARPin platforms
