Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. discovers, develops, and commercializes products that fight eye disease, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and inflammation. The company has several marketed products, including Eylea, approved for wet age-related macular degeneration and other eye diseases, Praluent for LDL cholesterol-lowering, and Dupixent for atopic dermatitis, asthma, and nasal polyposis.

The company is also developing monoclonal antibodies with Sanofi in immunology and cancer. REGN is also developing bispecific antibodies and antibody cocktails with other collaborators and independently. However, its key growth driver is Eylea, which continues to generate strong revenues from continued label expansions.

Eylea is approved in the United States, EU, Japan, and other countries to treat neovascular age-related macular degeneration, diabetic macular edema, and macular edema. Demographic trends are driving growth in the U.S., including an aging population and an increase in the prevalence of diabetes.

REGN is also working on expanding the drug’s label into additional indications. This should further boost sales. For instance, the FDA approved a 12-week dosing interval of Eylea injection in patients with wet AMD. The drug was also approved for the treatment of diabetic retinopathy. More label expansion into additional indications should give the drug access to more patients, leading to more potential for profits.

The company is also benefiting from the approval of Dupixent injection for the treatment of adults with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis and asthma. The uptake has been strong for both atopic dermatitis and asthma. Dupixent has also been approved in Europe. Like Eylea, continued label expansion should boost sales even further.
