Nov 26, 2009
Intravitreal Avastin (bevacizumab) is effective in the treatment of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) resulting from presumed ocular histoplasmosis syndrome, according to a new study. Histoplasmosis is a disease caused when airborne spores of the fungus Histoplasma capsulatum are inhaled in the lungs. Histoplasmosis is sometimes so mild that...

Nov 26, 2009
The vision of patients with persistent or reactivated choroidal neovascularization (CNV) that had been previously treated with photodynamic therapy (PDT) improve less than treatment-naive patients. Baseline assessments including best-corrected visual acuity, fluorescein angiography (FFA), and optical coherent tomography (OCT) were performed....

Intraocular pressure
Nov 20, 2009
Although temporary increases in intraocular pressure (IOP) are a known adverse effect of anti-VEGF medications for age-related macular degeneration (AMD), some patients develop persistent IOP — even without predisposing risk factors, according to research presented at the American Academy of Ophthalmology Annual Meeting. Whether this adverse...

Retinal angiomatous proliferation
Nov 19, 2009
Anti-VEGF monotherapy with Lucentis or Avastin represents a useful treatment option for patients with retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP) associated with age-related macular degeneration (AMD), according to a new study. Retinal angiomatous proliferation is a distinct form of wet AMD associated with neovascularization that originates from...

Intravitreal injection
Nov 18, 2009
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) ligands and their receptors are essential for development and for a wide variety of physiologic functions through adulthood, including visual function. Given the ubiquitous physiologic role of VEGF, evaluation of potential safety risks associated with nonspecific inhibition of VEGF-A and other VEGF-related...

Branch retinal vein occlusion
Nov 16, 2009
A retrospective case series of intravitreal Avastin (bevacizumab) combined with intravitreal triamcinolone (steroid) in patients with retinal vein occlusion (RVO) finds that after 6 months of follow-up the combination therapy was not superior to Avastin alone. Retinal vein occlusion is a common cause of sudden vision loss in adults. With CRVO...

Avastin
Oct 26, 2009
How different compounding pharmacies prepare doses of Avastin may lead to differences in high molecular weight adducts that may plug outflow pathways or cause an immunologic response that leads to IOP spikes, a speaker said at American Academy of Ophthalmology. "By no means am I saying that Avastin is doing something to the trabecular meshwork...

Macular degeneration
Oct 26, 2009
Investigators have shown, at 6 months in a small group of patients, that there is no difference in efficacy between Avastin (bevacizumab) and Lucentis (ranibizumab) for the treatment of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The study is the first to report early outcomes of a prospective, double-masked, randomized, controlled trial comparing...
