we deliver first-in-class solutions and technologies to provide a brighter future for those at risk of losing their sight. EyePoint specializes in the development of sustained-release drug delivery to treat debilitating diseases of the eye and other localized, chronic conditions.

Vorolanib

Vorolanib Brings a Potential New MOA to the Treatment of VEGF-Mediated Retinal Diseases by Blocking all Isoforms of VEFG and PDGF

  • Potent and selective pan–VEGF receptor inhibition
  • Composition of matter patent into 2037 (potential patent term extension to 2042)
  • Demonstrated neuroprotection in a validated retinal detachment animal model
  • Blocks PDGF which may lead to antifibrotic benefit
  • Reduced off-target binding – does not inhibit TIE-2 at clinically relevant doses

SoC=standard of care; ANG=angiopoietin; PDGF(R)=platelet-derived growth factor (receptor); PLGF=placental growth factor; TIE-2=tyrosine-protein kinase receptor; VEGF(R)=vascular endothelial growth factor (receptor).
