FDA accepts Xbrane’s sBLA for biosimilar ranibizumab

Jun 21, 2023

Xbrane Biopharma announced the FDA has accepted a supplemental Biologics License Application (sBLA) for its biosimilar to Genentech’s Lucentis® (ranibizumab) to treat serious eye diseases such as wet age-related macular degeneration, macular edema following retinal vein occlusion and myopic choroidal neovascularization.  The Biosimilar User Fee Amendment goal date is 21 April 2024.

Xbrane entered into a co-development agreement with STADA Arzneimittel AG in 2018, and subsequently, in May 2020, the two companies signed an exclusive licensing agreement with Bausch + Lomb to bring the biosimilar candidate to market in the United States and Canada.

On 25 April 2023, STADA and Xbrane together announced the supply of Ximluci® (ranibizumab) on the NHS in England.
