Recent studies and reports have found an association between Beovu and retinal vasculitis with vision loss. This comes only months after it received FDA approval.
What Is Beovu?
Brolucizumab-dbll, known by the brand name Beovu, is a vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) inhibitor. It is intended to treat wet AMD (age-related macular degeneration). Beovu is manufactured by the Swiss pharmaceutical giant Novartis. It is administered via intravitreal injection. Beovu comes in a 6mg single-use vial. The recommended dose is a monthly injection for the first three months. This is followed by an injection every 8-12 weeks. The FDA approved Beovu in October 2019.
