In this study patients will receive a posterior juxtascleral administration of anecortave acetate for depot suspension 15 mg every three months versus 15 mg every six months versus 30 mg every six months during the 24-month study. The patient will receive periodic ocular evaluations during the study.

To demonstrate that anecortave acetate is superior to placebo in maintenance of visual acuity at the 12- and 24-month visits.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether anecortave acetate can slow or stop the progression of age-related macular degeneration in patients who do not qualify for other studies an...
The purpose of this study is to provide compassionate use of anecortave acetate sterile suspension of 15 mg for a series of five patients as a means to control classic neovascularization f...
The purpose of the study was to determine the concentration of anecortave acetate (15 or 30 mg versus placebo) that is safe and effective for the inhibition of the growth of blood vessels ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of combining juxtasclerally administered anecortave acetate 15 mg with triamcinolone acetate 4 mg administered intravitreally following ...
To determine the significance of the correlation between optical coherence tomographic (OCT) findings and focal macular electroretinograms (fmERG) at 12 months after beginning intravitreal injections ...
To demonstrate the advantage of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) for the diagnosis and management of proliferative macular telangiectasia type 2 (MacTel2) masquerading as neovascular ag...
To investigate the relationship between perfusion of the choriocapillaris (CC) and macular function in eyes with intermediate age-related macular degeneration.
What patients should eat to reduce their risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is still unclear. We investigated the effect of a diet recommended by Health Councils on AMD.
Cuticular drusen (CD) have been associated with manifestations of age-related macular degeneration such as atrophy and neovascularization in the macula. In this study, eyes with CD were followed and i...
A form of MACULAR DEGENERATION also known as dry macular degeneration marked by occurrence of a well-defined progressive lesion or atrophy in the central part of the RETINA called the MACULA LUTEA. It is distinguishable from WET MACULAR DEGENERATION in that the latter involves neovascular exudates.
A retrogressive pathological change in the retina, focal or generalized, caused by genetic defects, inflammation, trauma, vascular disease, or aging. Degeneration affecting predominantly the macula lutea of the retina is MACULAR DEGENERATION. (Newell, Ophthalmology: Principles and Concepts, 7th ed, p304)
Specialized ophthalmic technique used in the surgical repair and or treatment of disorders that include retinal tears or detachment; MACULAR HOLES; hereditary retinal disease; AIDS-related retinal infections; ocular tumors; MACULAR DEGENERATION; DIABETIC RETINOPATHY; and UVEITIS.
A form of RETINAL DEGENERATION in which abnormal CHOROIDAL NEOVASCULARIZATION occurs under the RETINA and MACULA LUTEA, causing bleeding and leaking of fluid. This leads to bulging and or lifting of the macula and the distortion or destruction of central vision.
Degenerative changes in the RETINA usually of older adults which results in a loss of vision in the center of the visual field (the MACULA LUTEA) because of damage to the retina. It occurs in dry and wet forms.
