Graphs showing the mean change in visual acuity over time with Beovu vs aflibercept in the HAWK and HARRIER trials

The primary efficacy endpoint for the studies was the mean change from baseline in BCVA to Week 48 as measured by the ETDRS Letter Score with the primary objective to demonstrate non-inferiority of Beovu vs aflibercept.1 Beovu (q12w/q8w) demonstrated non-inferiority in VA to aflibercept 2 mg (fixed q8w).1

BCVA, best corrected visual acuity; ETDRS, Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study; q8w, once every 8 weeks; q12w, once every 12 weeks; VA, visual acuity.
