This will be a randomized, double-masked, controlled, dose-ranging, multi-center comparative trial, in parallel groups. Patients will be stratified by clinical center, by percentage of classic CNV vessels: [predominantly classic (>50%) vs. minimally classic (1-49%) vs. purely occult (0%)], and according to whether, or not, they have received prior PDT with Visudyne (no more than once). All patients will be re-randomized after 54 weeks of treatment to either, continue or discontinue therapy for further 48 weeks.

An Open-Label Investigator Sponsored Trial to Investigate the Safety, Tolerability and Development of Subfoveal Fibrosis By Intravitreal Administration of Altering Regimens of Fovista and Anti-VEGF Therapy in Subjects With Neovascular Age-Related Macular
The objectives of this study are to establish the safety and tolerability of intravitreous administration of altering regimens of Fovista™ (Anti-PDGF-B pegylated aptamer) administered in...
To evaluate the safety of intravitreal (IVT) Fovista® administered in combination with anti-VEGF therapy.
The only treatment available for age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the injection of an anti-VEGF into the vitreous glass. 37% of patients will be poor responders to this treatment....
This study will define the limits of subretinal hemorrhage parameters that are consistent with a good visual outcome with aggressive anti-VEGF treatment in patients with neovascular age-re...
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness after 50 years in industrialized countries, compromising daily activities and reducing quality of life. And whose t...
The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of anti-VEGF monotherapy with verteporfin photodynamic therapy (PDT) and anti-VEGF combination treatment in neovascular AMD.
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a key player in the pathogenesis of neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) and is also involved in the final common pathway of antidepressant ...
Intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) injections are an effective treatment for neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nARMD). Bevacizumab appears to be a cost-effective o...
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) can cause irreversible vision loss leading to blindness. We aim to evaluate the efficacy and safety of intravitreal injections of 0.5 mg conbercept, a new anti-V...
Visual acuity (VA) outcomes differ considerably among patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) treated with anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) drugs. Identificatio...
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 recombinant humanized monoclonal antibody fragment that binds VEGF-A to prevent its binding to VEGFR-1 and VEGFR-2 receptors. This activity reduces vessel permeability and angiogenesis in the treatment of neovascular age-related MACULAR DEGENERATION.
An anti-VEGF recombinant monoclonal antibody consisting of humanized murine antibody. It inhibits VEGF receptors and prevents the proliferation of blood vessels.
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.
