Macular degeneration
Jun 27, 2010
Combination therapies generated greater visual acuity gains with fewer reinjections compared with monotherapy in a phase 2 study of patients with exudative age-related macular degeneration. In the phase 2 RADICAL (Reduced fluence Visudyne anti-VEGF-dexamethasone in combination for AMD lesions) study, mean gain in visual acuity from baseline in 3...

Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy
Jun 17, 2010
Combined verteporfin photodynamic therapy (PDT) and Lucentis (ranibizumab) shows promising results for the treatment of polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV). Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) is a condition characterized by multiple, recurrent, serosanguinous pigment epithelial detachment (PED), and neurosensory retinal detachment due...

Lucentis (ranibizumab) plus laser photocoagulation results in significantly better visual acuity than laser alone for patients with diabetic macular edema (DME), according to a new research study. Macular edema is the most common cause of reduced visual acuity in diabetic retinopathy, which in turn is the leading cause of blindness in North...

Intravitreal injection
May 13, 2010
The inject-and-extend schedule for anti-VEGF therapy with Lucentis (ranibizumab) in age-related macular degeneration (AMD) shows better efficacy and compatibility with patients' lifestyles and needs than the as-needed regimen, according to a study carried out at two clinics in France. The inject-and-extend administration schedule, first...

Intravitreal injection
May 9, 2010
Tunneled scleral injection technique causes greater short-term intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation following intravitreal Lucentis (ranibizumab). Elevation of IOP is a risk factor for glaucoma. IOP reflects a balance between the rate that fluid flows into the eye and the rate that it exits the eye. If inflow increases or outflow decreases,...

Lucentis
May 7, 2010
Intravitreal injection of Lucentis (ranibizumab) does not produce a therapeutic effect in the fellow eye of patients with bilateral exudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD), according to a new study. In patients with exudative AMD, intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapy can lead to stabilization and even...

punctate inner choroidopathy
Apr 20, 2010
Lucentis is effective in the treatment of punctate inner choroidopathy, according to a recently published case report. Punctate inner choroidopathy is a rare, idiopathic posterior uveitis that usually develops in young, myopic females. Choroidal neovascularization (CNV) and subretinal fibrosis are common complications in patients with punctate...

Patients with wet AMD that fails to respond to anti-VEGF therapy are at risk of depression, according to a new study. Anti–vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) treatment has dramatically reduced the risk of severe vision loss in patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD). On average, about 30% of subjects in clinical trials...

Age-related macular degeneration
Apr 16, 2010
The ability of anti-VEGF therapy to stop fluid accumulation in the macula after neovascularization secondary to age-related macular degeneration (AMD) has been proven in clinical studies, but no clear answers are yet available on the appropriate endpoint of therapy. Despite success in treating leakage from new blood vessels, anti-VEGF therapy...

myopic macular degeneration
Mar 30, 2010
Visual outcomes after treatment with intravitreal Avastin (bevacizumab) or Lucentis (ranibizumab) injection is superior to visual outcome following photodynamic therapy (PDT) in patients with myopic choroidal neovascularization (CNV), according to a new study. Extreme myopia may result in degenerative changes of the retina. These degenerative...
