REUTERS: Allergan Plc and Molecular Partners AG said on Thursday their treatment for age-related macular degeneration met the main goal in two late-stage studies.

The drug, abicipar, demonstrated that both the 8-week and 12-week treatment regimens met the goal of non-inferiority to Roche Holding AG's Lucentis.

The two companies, however, noted that incidence of intraocular inflammations in patients taking abicipar was higher compared to those taking Lucentis.
