"2018 was marked by the diversification of our product revenue streams as well as exciting advances across our commercial and development portfolio," said Leonard S. Schleifer, M.D., Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Regeneron. "In 2019, we plan to strengthen EYLEA\'s U.S. market leadership position with a potential approval in diabetic retinopathy. With the fourth quarter U.S. approval of Dupixent in asthma, and the potential 2019 approvals in adolescent atopic dermatitis and chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyposis in the U.S. and asthma in the EU, Dupixent continues to deliver on its potential as a pipeline in a product. Libtayo, our first approved immuno-oncology therapy, has begun its launch in advanced cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma and we continue to investigate multiple other potential indications, both as monotherapy and in combination. This year we plan to initiate two potentially pivotal lymphoma studies with our most advanced bispecific antibody, CD20xCD3, and to advance two innovative co-stimulatory bispecific antibodies into human clinical studies."
