Groundbreaking Clinical Trials for AMD

Bay Area Retina Associates is pleased to participate in some of the most cutting-edge clinical trials for common vision-threatening retinal diseases, including neovascular ("wet") age-related macular degeneration. Wet AMD is currently treated with ocular injections of Avastin, Lucentis, and Eylea, which are different drugs that inhibit the same disease target, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). These drugs have revolutionized the care of patients with wet AMD by stabilizing the disease and preventing severe central vision loss that occurs with untreated wet AMD. Our next goal in wet AMD is to help more patients gain vision, keep that vision over time, and require less frequent therapy. This same strategy is being applied to other retinal vascular diseases, including diabetic macular edema (DME) and retinal vein occlusion (RVO). You can learn more about Bay Area Retina Associates clinical trial programs here.
