Eye­Point Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals’ wet age-re­lat­ed mac­u­lar de­gen­er­a­tion (AMD) ther­a­py has demon­strat­ed non-in­fe­ri­or­i­ty to Re­gen­eron’s Eylea, even with a less fre­quent dos­ing reg­i­men in a mid-stage study, prompt­ing its share price to rock­et by more than 200% on Mon­day morn­ing.

The biotech’s share price $EYPT now sits at around $20, up from $6.61 at pre­vi­ous close.

The tri­al en­rolled a to­tal of 160 sub­jects who were pre­vi­ous­ly dosed with at least two stan­dard of care an­ti-VEGF in­jec­tions in six months pri­or to screen­ing.
