...retinal diseases such as wet age related macular edema and retinal vein occlusion," said Kevin Peters, MD, Chief Scientific Officer of Aerpio. "We also showed that AKB-9778 was effective in these models when administered either directly into the eye or when given systemically by subcutaneous injections. Given the high cost and inconvenience of current therapies for retinal disease, which are typically injected directly into a patient's eye at a physician's office, we sought to develop AKB-9778 as a potential self-administered subcutaneous alternative that could be used as a monotherapy or potentially adjunctively with anti-VEGF agents."
