Stabilizing the volume of exudative fluid, including subretinal fluid, may help maximize anti-VEGF treatment outcomes for patients with nAMD.
DAVIO Trial Results: Vorolanib Injection Reduces Treatment Burden for Patients with nAMD
Standard treatment for nAMD involves repeated anti-VEGF injections. A recent study has found that an investigational therapy, administered through a bioerodible insert in the vitreous cavity, reduced treatment burden by 74% in one year.
Effect of New Therapy Lasts Longer for Patients with Neovascular Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Faricimab, a new drug for nAMD, offers patients similar benefits at 16-week intervals as aflibercept at eight-week intervals, a study shows.
Even Brief Delays in Intravitreal Injection Can Cause Vision Loss
Patients with diabetic eye disease or vein occlusion lost more vision than patients with age-related macular degeneration when they missed an intravitreal injection during the COVID-19 shutdown.

Consequences of Lapse in Anti-VEGF Therapy During the COVID-19 Pandemic
A lapse in anti-VEGF therapy can cause an irreversible decrease in visual acuity in neovascular age-related macular degeneration.
Brolucizumab Delivers Superior Elimination of Retinal Fluid and Possibly Reduced Dosing Frequency than Aflibercept in Two Studies
HAWK and HARRIER results show that brolucizumab delivers a superior retinal drying effect compared with aflibercept for patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration.
