Brolucizumab: What’s new and newer about it?
Brolucizumab is the newest anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) drug approved for use. The aim of this review is to review the HAWK/HARRIER clinical trials, examine post-marketing experience with the drug, and evaluate the packaging/procedural differences with brolucizumab. Brolucizumab is a more potent and longer lasting anti-VEGF agent, and is an important agent that may be used in the treatment of neovascular age-related macular degeneration. Retinal vasculitis is a rare but very serious complication of brolucizumab that the patient and physician must be aware of.
