Mylan/Momenta announce development strategy for aflibercept biosimilar Posted 26/01/2018

US generics giant Mylan and partner Momenta Pharmaceuticals announced on 3 January 2017 their development strategy for their aflibercept biosimilar, M710.

The product is a proposed biosimilar of Regeneron’s wet age-related macular degeneration treatment, Eylea (aflibercept). Eylea is the market-leading vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) inhibitor indicated for the treatment of neovascular (wet) age-related macular degeneration, macular edema following retinal vein occlusion, diabetic macular edema and diabetic retinopathy in patients with diabetic macular edema.

The companies’ plans for M710 include initiating a pivotal clinical trial in the first half of 2018. According to the joint press release, the trial will be a randomized, double-blind, active-control, multicentre study in patients with diabetic macular edema to compare the safety, efficacy and immunogenicity of M710 with Eylea.

Momenta is also developing M834, a proposed biosimilar to Orencia (abatacept) in collaboration with Mylan [1], and M923, a proposed biosimilar to Humira (adalimumab) [2].

Mylan is collaborating with Polish firm Mabion on a rituximab biosimilar (MabionCD20) [3]. The company is also collaborating with Indian firm Biocon on a pegfilgrastim biosimilar (MYL‑1401H) [4], a trastuzumab biosimilar (MYL‑1401O) [5], an insulin lispro biosimilar [6], and an insulin glargine biosimilar (MYL‑1501D) [7].
