Medical News / Coverage ASRS 2019: Vrinda Hershberger, MD, PhD: Faricimab for Diabetic Macular Edema

An analysis of the phase 2 BOULEVARD trial presented at the 2019 American Society of Retina SpecialistsAnnual Meeting highlighted the anatomical benefits and the potential for extended durability with faricimab compared with anti-VEGF mono therapy in patients with diabetic macular edema (DME). 

 Data from the analyses, which was presented for the first time at ESRS 2019 by Vrinda Hershberger, MD, PhD, found that faricimab not only led to improved best-corrected visual acuity and central subfield thickness from baseline, but also provided anatomical benefits and displayed a potential for extended durability compared to anti-VEGF monotherapy. 

 In between sessions, Hershberger, vitreal retina surgeon with Florida Eye Associates, sat down with MD Magazine at ESRS 2019 to discuss the findings of the analysis and what they mean going forward.
