This report provides detailed analysis of the current and projected mar-kets for diabetic retinopathy (DR) and diabetic macular edema (DME). The DR population represents more than 5.8 million diagnosed patients in the U.S. with 2.3 million DR patients also suffering from DME.
TreatmentTrends: Diabetic Retinopathy/Diabetic Macular Edema (U.S.) is an annual syndicated report series that offers a snapshot of DR and DME market dynamics and competitive landscape through comprehensive primary research with retinal specialists and general ophthalmologists. The report covers the current use of intravitreal injec-tions, in particular anti-VEGF agents, for the treatment of DME, as well as attitudes and perceptions toward these products, advantages and disadvantages, ideal patient types, barriers to growth, promotional activ-ity, and anticipated use. In addition, respondents are queried about their awareness of and interest in products in development.

Questions Answered in This Report:

  • What are the clinical features observed among DR and DME pa-tients?

  • How are DR and DME patients currently treated, specifically with in-travitreal anti-VEGF agents?

  • What product attributes are most important to retinal specialists/general ophthalmologists when selecting a DME therapy? How do the different intravitreal agents perform against these attributes?

  • What are the current Lucentis 0.3 mg promotional and messaging efforts for the treatment of DME?

  • How do respondents anticipate treatment approaches changing over the next six months? What factors are driving these trends?

  • What is physicians’ current awareness of products in late stage devel-opment for the treatment of DME? Which products do they perceive as offering the most value and what factors drive value for the treat-ment of DME?
