* LUCENTIS. † Biosimilarity was concluded if the difference in mean change in BCVA at Week 8 was confined within the equivalence margin of ±3.5 letters. ‡ Efficacy analyses were performed on the Full Analysis Set, which included every patient who received at least one dose of either study drug. The primary endpoint was analysed using a Mixed Model for Repeated Measures (MMRM). To prove that the two products were biosimilar, the confidence limits had to be within the equivalence margin of 3.5 letters at Week 8, either 90% CI for US or 95% CI for the rest of the world. BCVA, best corrected visual acuity; CI, confidence interval.
