“Regeneron continues to grow and diversify our business, while continuing to deliver very strong financial results. In addition to EYLEA reaching over $1 billion in quarterly U.S. net sales, we also made significant progress with Dupixent, a key driver of future growth, and launched Libtayo, our first immuno-oncology therapy,” said Leonard S. Schleifer, M.D., Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Regeneron. “Dupixent is now approved in the U.S. for both atopic dermatitis and asthma and under regulatory review for the treatment of adolescents with atopic dermatitis – with another submission planned in chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps. We also recently reported positive Phase 3 results for EYLEA in diabetic retinopathy, and expect an FDA action on our supplemental application for this indication in the first half of 2019.”
