Gonzalez, MD, said at the American Society of Retina Specialists meeting, where he gave an interim analysis of the ORION study. “Because the etiology of CRVO macular edema finds its basis in both inflammatory and vascular changes, we found it of interest to see if a multimodal approach may help in the treatment of this condition.”
