Bausch + Lomb Announces Scientific Data on XIPERE® (Triamcinolone Acetonide Injectable Suspension) to be Presented During the American Society of Retina Specialists Annual Scientific Meeting

Five Presentations Will Highlight Findings from the XIPERE® Pivotal Phase 3 Program

VAUGHAN, ON, July 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Bausch + Lomb Corporation (NYSE/TSX: BLCO) (“Bausch + Lomb”), a leading global eye health company dedicated to helping people see better to live better, today announced that five presentations highlighting data from the XIPERE® (triamcinolone acetonide injectable suspension) pivotal Phase 3 program will be presented at the American Society of Retina Specialists (ASRS) 40th annual scientific meeting, which will take place in New York from July 13-16, 2022. The presentations will include a new post-hoc analysis of the pivotal Phase 3 trial (PEACHTREE) evaluating outcomes following treatment with XIPERE® in patients with macular edema associated with chronic uveitis.

“At this year’s ASRS annual meeting, we look forward to sharing these data with retina specialists on XIPERE®, which we launched commercially in March,” said Christina Ackermann, president, Ophthalmic Pharmaceuticals, Bausch + Lomb. “We have received great interest in XIPERE® from the eye care professional community since then, and we appreciate the opportunity that the ASRS meeting affords us to continue to provide valuable clinical insights on the product, as well as on its novel use of the suprachoroidal space to help treat patients with macular edema associated with uveitis.”

Following is a complete list of titles and lead authors for each of the presentations:

  • Ghoraba et al. Suprachoroidal triamcinolone acetonide injectable suspension for macular edema associated with uveitis: Outcomes by anatomic subtypes in PEACHTREE.
  • Henry et al. Efficacy of suprachoroidal triamcinolone acetonide injectable suspension in the treatment of macular edema in patients with chronic uveitis.
  • Pan et al. Suprachoroidal use of triamcinolone acetonide: Post hoc analysis of PEACHTREE to evaluate elevations in intraocular pressure.
  • Uchiyama et al. Suprachoroidal triamcinolone acetonide injectable suspension for uveitic macular edema: Outcomes in PEACHTREE by baseline disease characteristics.
  • Yeh et al. Suprachoroidal triamcinolone acetonide injectable suspension for macular edema associated with uveitis: Integrated analysis of two clinical trials.

XIPERE® is a triamcinolone acetonide injectable suspension for suprachoroidal use for the treatment of macular edema associated with uveitis, a form of eye inflammation. XIPERE® is the first and only treatment to be approved in the United States for delivery via the suprachoroidal space and the first and only uveitic macular edema treatment to demonstrate clinical efficacy with a BCVA (Best Corrected Visual Acuity) primary endpoint. XIPERE® is administered via the suprachoroidal space using the SCS Microinjector®. The SCS Microinjector® offers unprecedented access to the back of the eye where sight-threatening disease often occurs and provides targeted delivery to potentially improve efficacy and compartmentalization of medication.


XIPERE® (triamcinolone acetonide injectable suspension) for suprachoroidal use is a corticosteroid indicated for the treatment of macular edema associated with uveitis.


Patients should be monitored following injection for elevated intraocular pressure. See Dosage and Administration instructions in full Prescribing Information.

  • XIPERE® is contraindicated in patients with active or suspected ocular or periocular infections including most viral diseases of the cornea and conjunctiva, including active epithelial herpes simplex keratitis (dendritic keratitis), vaccinia, varicella, mycobacterial infections, and fungal diseases.

  • XIPERE® is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to triamcinolone acetonide or any other components of this product.

  • Use of corticosteroids may produce cataracts, increased intraocular pressure, and glaucoma. Use of corticosteroids may enhance the establishment of secondary ocular infections due to bacteria, fungi, or viruses, and should be used cautiously in patients with a history of ocular herpes simplex.

  • Hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis suppression, Cushing’s syndrome, and hyperglycemia can occur following administration of a corticosteroid. Monitor patients for these conditions with chronic use.

  • In controlled studies, the most common ocular adverse reactions were increased ocular pressure, non-acute (14%), eye pain, non-acute (12%), cataract (7%), increased intraocular pressure, acute (6%), vitreous detachment (5%), injection site pain (4%), conjunctival hemorrhage (4%), visual acuity reduced (4%), dry eye (3%), eye pain, acute (3%), photophobia (3%), and vitreous floaters (3%), and in 2% of patients: uveitis, conjunctival hyperaemia, punctate keratitis, conjunctival oedema, meibomianitis, anterior capsule contraction, chalazion, eye irritation, eye pruritus, eyelid ptosis, photopsia, and vision blurred.


    The most common non-ocular adverse event was headache (5%).

  • Corticosteroids should be used during pregnancy or nursing only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus or nursing infant.
