Age-Related Macular Degeneration Happenings at the Foundation
At the Retina Foundation, our Lab Directors often partner with various pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to conduct clinical trials and research. In our Clinical Center of Innovation for Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), led by Dr. Karl Csaky, Chief Executive and Medical Officer of the Foundation, we currently have 15 studies for AMD and geographic atrophy (GA), along with two studies focusing on Stargardt’s disease. The goal of these studies is to focus on treatment of AMD, GA, and Stargardt’s disease, as well as gain a better understanding of these AMD-related conditions.
The AMD studies that the Foundation is currently enrolling for include:
Non-Exudative Age-Related Macular Degeneration Imaged with Swept Source Optical Coherence Tomography, sponsored by Boston Image Reading Center; Clinicaltrials.gov Identifier NCT#: 03688243
A Phase II, Multicenter, Randomized, Single-Masked, Sham-Controlled Study to Assess Safety, Tolerability and Efficacy of Intravitreal Injections in Patients with Geographic Atrophy Secondary to Age-Related Macular Degeneration, sponsored by Genetech, Inc.; Clinicaltrials.gov Identifier NCT#: 03972709
A Study of Disease Progression in Genetically Defined Subjects with Geographic Atrophy Secondary to Age-Related Macular Degeneration, sponsored by Gyroscope Therapeutics; Clinicaltrials.gov Identifier NCT#: 03894020
Age-Related Macular Degeneration Ryan Initiative Study, sponsored by the National Eye Institute (NEI); Clinicaltrials.gov Identifier NCT#: 03092492
A Phase 2, Randomized Placebo-Controlled, Double-Masked Study to Assess Safety and Efficacy of Multiple Doses of an Antisense Inhibitor of Complement Factor B, in Patients with Geographic Atrophy Secondary to Age-Related Macular Degeneration, sponsored by Ionis Pharmaceuticals, Inc.; Clinicaltrials.gov Identifier NCT#: 03815825
