Teva obtains UK approval for Ongavia®, biosimilar ranibizumab

May 17, 2022

Teva announced that the UK’s MHRA has granted marketing approval for Ongavia® (biosimilar ranibizumab), making the UK the first country in Europe to approve the product for the treatment of (wet) AMD.  Ongavia® will be Teva’s first biosimilar commercialised in Europe, and the UK’s first Lucentis® biosimilar.  The product is the result of a strategic agreement between Teva and Bioeq AG.  Ongavia® is approved for the treatment of: neovascular (wet) age-related macular degeneration; visual impairment due to diabetic macular oedema (DME); proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR); visual impairment due to macular oedema secondary to retinal vein occlusion (branch RVO or central RVO); and visual impairment due to choroidal neovascularisation (CNV).
