Long-term Results After Intravitreal Bevacizumab Treatment Of Neovascular Age-related Macular Degeneration

2014-08-27 03:17:26 | BioPortfolio

Summary

200 eyes with each subtype of neovascular age-related macular degeneration will be included in this study and 3 years after the initial intravitreal bevacizumab, best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) will be measured using Snellen charts at 6m. Central retinal thickness (CRT) will be measured using Stratus OCT and Cirrus SD-OCT (Zeiss). Data of treatment-naive eyes (group 1) were compared to the data of eyes that had undergone prior treatment with photodynamic therapy with verteporfin and intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide (group 2).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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 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)

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.
