    2. Aflibercept outperforms bevacizumab for DME with moderate or worse vision loss in NIH-funded trial; drugs perform similarly when vision loss mild

    Earlier this week, aflibercept (Eylea, Regeneron) was announced to provide greater gains in vision than for those receiving bevacizumab (Avastin, Genentech) with starting vision of 20/50 or worse in a 2-year clinical trial. The trial also tested results of ranibizumab (Lucentis, Genentech), which yielded similar gains as the other drugs in patients with 20/32 or 20/40 vision.
