  3. WATERTOWN, Mass., July 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EyePoint Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:EYPT), a pharmaceutical company committed to developing and commercializing therapeutics to help improve the lives of patients with serious eye disorders, announced today that the Company expects to receive a nine month extension on DEXYCU®'s pass-through payment status, which otherwise would expire on March 31, 2022.

    On July 19, 2021, The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released its 2022 draft Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System (HOPPS) rule, which indicates that CMS plans to extend the pass-through period for select outpatient drugs and device products, such as DEXYCU, due to the public health emergency associated…

    WATERTOWN, Mass., July 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EyePoint Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:EYPT), a pharmaceutical company committed to developing and commercializing therapeutics to help improve the lives of patients with serious eye disorders, announced today that the Company expects to receive a nine month extension on DEXYCU®'s pass-through payment status, which otherwise would expire on March 31, 2022.

    On July 19, 2021, The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released its 2022 draft Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System (HOPPS) rule, which indicates that CMS plans to extend the pass-through period for select outpatient drugs and device products, such as DEXYCU, due to the public health emergency associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. The draft rules are subject to a public comment period prior to the issuance by CMS of the final 2022 HOPPS rule, which is anticipated in November 2021.

    "We are extremely pleased that the CMS has indicated it intends to provide additional pass-through time, subject to public comment, allowing for another nine months of pass through status for important innovative products such as DEXYCU," said Nancy Lurker, Chief Executive Officer of EyePoint Pharmaceuticals. "The continuation of pass-through status by the CMS is an important step as we continue to execute on our commercial strategy of expanding the use of DEXYCU by physicians for their patients."

    Approximately 60% of patients who undergo cataract surgery are covered by Medicare Part B. Drugs that are administered as part of the cataract surgery procedure can be covered under a CMS administered transitional-pass-through payment. The pass-through payment was established by the U.S. government to help foster innovative drug development. Drug applications must meet certain qualifications for inclusion. The transitional pass-through status is typically three years.

  4. WATERTOWN, Mass., July 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EyePoint Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:EYPT), a pharmaceutical company committed to developing and commercializing therapeutics to improve the lives of patients with serious eye disorders, today announced positive safety results from its Phase 1 clinical trial of EYP-1901, a potential twice-yearly sustained delivery anti-VEGF treatment targeting wet age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD). All dose cohorts have reached at least 30-day post-dosing follow up.

    WATERTOWN, Mass., July 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EyePoint Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:EYPT), a pharmaceutical company committed to developing and commercializing therapeutics to improve the lives of patients with serious eye disorders, today announced positive safety results from its Phase 1 clinical trial of EYP-1901, a potential twice-yearly sustained delivery anti-VEGF treatment targeting wet age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD). All dose cohorts have reached at least 30-day post-dosing follow up.

    "We are pleased by the 30-day safety data seen for all three cohorts of the EYP-1901 DAVIO trial in patients with wet AMD," said Nancy Lurker, CEO of EyePoint Pharmaceuticals. "These early results continue to support our belief in the potential of EYP-1901 to be a safe and effective therapeutic for long-term treatment of wet AMD. We are looking forward to releasing interim efficacy results once we have sufficient follow-up data for all dose cohorts in the fourth quarter of this year. Additionally, we continue to progress toward initiating our clinical trials of EYP-1901 for diabetic retinopathy and retinal vein occlusion."

    The DAVIO clinical trial of EYP-1901 enrolled 17 wet AMD patients across three dose cohorts. Key safety observations through at least 30-Day post-dosing follow-up for all patients include:

    • No serious adverse events (SAEs), ocular or systemic, were reported
    • The three subjects in cohort 1 have been followed for a minimum of four months with no reported SAE's
    • To date, there are no reported adverse events (AEs) related to significant intraocular inflammation, best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) reduction, or elevation of intraocular pressure (IOP)
    • No events of endophthalmitis, retinal detachment or migration into the anterior chamber have been reported to date

    The patients enrolled in the Phase 1 DAVIO open-label, dose escalation trial were previously treated with standard of care anti-VEGF therapies. EYP-1901 is delivered via a single intravitreal injection in the physician's office. The primary endpoint of the trial is safety, and key secondary endpoints are best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and central subfield thickness (CST) as measured by optical coherence tomography (OCT).

    EYP-1901 utilizes the Company's proprietary Durasert® drug delivery technology that has been used in four FDA-approved products, including EyePoint's YUTIQ® for chronic non-infectious uveitis affecting the posterior segment of the eye.

    About EYP-1901

    EYP-1901 is a potential twice-yearly sustained delivery intravitreal anti-VEGF treatment for wet age-related macular degeneration. EYP-1901 combines a bioerodible formulation of EyePoint's proprietary Durasert® sustained release technology with vorolanib, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor. Vorolanib provided clear efficacy signals in two prior human trials in wet AMD as an orally delivered therapy with no significant ocular adverse events. Preclinical studies of EYP-1901 have shown anti-VEGF activity in disease models of ocular neovascularization and no serious safety issues were observed. EYP-1901 is initially being developed as a treatment of wet AMD, with the potential for additional indications in diabetic retinopathy and retinal vein occlusion.

    WATERTOWN, Mass., July 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EyePoint Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:EYPT), a pharmaceutical company committed to developing and commercializing therapeutics to help improve the lives of patients with serious eye disorders, announced today that the American Medical Association (AMA) Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) Editorial Panel accepted the addition of a new Category III CPT code, 0X78T for the administration of a drug into the posterior chamber of the anterior segment of the eye, effective January 1, 2022, providing an opportunity for a reimbursement pathway for the administration of DEXYCU.

    "We are pleased by the AMA's approval of this new Category III code, which we believe will provide physicians with an opportunity for a reimbursement pathway for intraocular procedures, including DEXYCU," said Scott Jones, Chief Commercial Officer of EyePoint Pharmaceuticals. "DEXYCU is the first and only FDA-approved, single dose, sustained-release, intracameral steroid for the treatment of postoperative inflammation. We believe the new code is an important step toward increased adoption of DEXYCU."

    Category III CPT codes are temporary codes for emerging technologies, services and procedures intended to be used for specific data collection or documentation. Inclusion or exclusion of a procedure or service does not imply any health insurance coverage or reimbursement policy.
