Eylea lifts Regeneron Q2 earnings

Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Thursday reported better-than-expected second quarter earnings of $5.45 per share on a revenue of $1.6 billion. Revenue for the quarter rose 9% year-over-year driven by strong US sales growth of Eylea and Dupixent drugs. On a GAAP basis, net income jumped 44% to $4.82 per share.

In the US, Eylea sales grew 8% to $992 million, while Dupixent saw its sale grow more than six times to $181 million.

“We are particularly pleased by US launch progress with Dupixent for adults with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis, driven by a positive experience in the marketplace by patients and physicians in this serious disease,” said CEO Leonard Schleifer in a statement.

In the second half of the year, the company anticipates two significant US regulatory approvals –cemiplimab for cell cancer and Dupixent for uncontrolled asthma.
