Intraocular Pressure in Eyes Receiving Monthly Ranibizumab in 2 Pivotal Age-Related Macular Degeneration Clinical Trials – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To characterize preinjection intraocular pressure (IOP) in eyes receiving monthly ranibizumab versus sham or verteporfin photodynamic therapy (PDT) for age-related macular degeneration (AMD).Design: Post hoc analysis of IOP data from 2 phase 3 clinical trials, the Minimally Classic/Occult Trial of the Anti-VEGF Antibody Ranibizumab in the Treatment of Neovascular AMD (MARINA) and the Anti-VEGF Antibody for the Treatment of Predominantly Classic Choroidal Neovascularization in AMD (ANCHOR) trial.Participants: All safety-evaluable patients who received 1 or more injections of sham or PDT or of ranibizumab and had 1 or more postbaseline IOP measurements recorded for the study eye.Methods: Preinjection IOP measurements (Read more...)
