Significant and sustained BCVA improvements in clinical trials with XIPERE1-3

Pivotal trial PEACHTREE demonstrated results at Week 242

Review PEACHTREE study design >

Primary endpoint

XIPERE delivered a significant BCVA improvement of ≥15 ETDRS letters from baseline at Week 242

47% of patients treated with XIPERE achieved this compared with 16% of patients in the control group (n=96 and n=64 respectively; P<0.01).2

Bar chart showing 47% of XIPERE™ TREATED patients achieved a significant BCVA improvement of ≥15 letters from baseline vs 16% of patients in the control group.

Secondary endpoint

Patients experienced a mean reduction of ~153 μm in central subfield thickness (CST) at Week 24 with XIPERE

vs ~18 μm in the control group (n=96 and n=64 respectively) 2

PEACHTREE POST HOC ANALYSIS

Mean BCVA gain was greater for patients treated with XIPERE, relative to control, regardless of anatomical location of uveitis at Week 245

View BCVA Data

At baseline, 41 (25.6%) patients had anterior uveitis, 57 (35.6%) had intermediate, 35 (21.9%) had posterior, and 52 (32.5%) had panuveitis.2

XIPERE delivered durability

The 24-week noninterventional extension study MAGNOLIA included patients who had completed the pivotal PEACHTREE study without receiving rescue medication.3

Review MAGNOLIA study design >

Primary endpoint

The primary endpoint was time to rescue therapy relative to the date of the first of two quarterly treatments in PEACHTREE. Once patients received rescue medication, they were discontinued from the study.

  • 344 days was the median time to rescue for patients treated with XIPERE (n=28)
  • Additionally, 50% of patients treated with XIPERE™ completed the study by reaching the Week 48 visit without rescue medication.

ADDITIONAL ENDPOINTS
Patients completing MAGNOLIA maintained a mean BCVA improvement of 12 letters for 9 months after the second and final dose of XIPERE, which was received at Week 12 (n=14).3

MAGNOLIA POST HOC ANALYSIS
A Kaplan-Meier analysis was performed to assess the probability of rescue therapy being required over the entire 48-week period. This analysis also included patients from PEACHTREE who were not enrolled in MAGNOLIA.3

Indication

XIPERE (triamcinolone acetonide injectable suspension) for suprachoroidal use is a corticosteroid indicated for the treatment of macular edema associated with uveitis.

Important Safety Information

Patients should be monitored following injection for elevated intraocular pressure. See Dosage and Administration instructions in full Prescribing Information.

  • XIPERE is contraindicated in patients with active or suspected ocular or periocular infections including most viral diseases of the cornea and conjunctiva, including active epithelial herpes simplex keratitis (dendritic keratitis), vaccinia, varicella, mycobacterial infections, and fungal diseases.
  • XIPERE is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to triamcinolone acetonide or any other components of this product.
  • Use of corticosteroids may produce cataracts, increased intraocular pressure, and glaucoma. Use of corticosteroids may enhance the establishment of secondary ocular infections due to bacteria, fungi, or viruses, and should be used cautiously in patients with a history of ocular herpes simplex.
  • Hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis suppression, Cushing’s syndrome, and hyperglycemia can occur following administration of a corticosteroid. Monitor patients for these conditions with chronic use.
  • In controlled studies, the most common ocular adverse reactions were increased ocular pressure, non-acute (14%), eye pain, non-acute (12%), cataract (7%); increased intraocular pressure, acute (6%), cataract (7%), vitreous detachment (5%), injection site pain (4%) conjunctival hemorrhage (4%), visual acuity reduced (4%), dry eye (3%), eye pain, acute (3%), photophobia (3%), and vitreous floaters (3%), and in 2% of patients: uveitis, conjunctival hyperaemia, punctate keratitis, conjunctival oedema, meibomianitis, anterior capsule contraction, chalazion, eye irritation, eye pruritus, eyelid ptosis, photopsia, and vision blurred.
    The most common non-ocular adverse event was headache (5%).
  • Corticosteroids should be used during pregnancy or nursing only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus or nursing infant.

You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
