Syfovre Injection Linked to Vision Loss & Severe Eye Inflammation | 2023

Syfovre was developed by Apellis Pharmaceuticals to treat geographic atrophy, an advanced form of late stage dry age-related macular degeneration.

While the injections were approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in February 2023, a safety committee advising the American Society of Retinal Specialists (ASRS) sounded the alarm regarding dangerous side effects of Syfovre in July 2023.

The group found six cases of patients experiencing occlusive retinal vasculitis just a few days after their first injection of Syfovre. Occlusive retinal vasculitis is a type of inflammation that hinders blood flow to the retina and may result in severe vision loss.

The cause of these side effects is currently unclear, as Apellis Pharmaceuticals has not identified any issues linked to a specific batch of Syfovre.

However, members of the ASRS have speculated that transferring the drug into syringes for commercial use may lead to contamination or infection.

Syfovre Side Effects & Risks

Syfovre injections are typically given once every 25 to 60 days. However, patients may experience occlusive retinal vasculitis within 1 to 2 weeks of their first Syfovre injection.

Syfovre medication and occlusive retinal vasculitis side effects may include:

  • Blind spots (scotoma)
  • Blurred vision
  • Floaters or flashes
  • Inflammation
  • Pain
  • Partial or total loss of sight

Unfortunately, vision loss caused by Syfovre may be permanent. 

Pursuing compensation from a Syfovre legal claim can help victims with medical bills, emotional distress, and other costs associated with their injuries.
