A new ranibizumab injection offers hope for patients with wet age-related macular degeneration, according to a presentation at Hawaiian Eye 2022. It was great to catch up with Dr Carl Regillo (Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA, USA), who talked to us about the ranibizumab injection and its advantages over anti-vascular endothelial growth factor injections.
The abstract entitled Update on Emerging Wet AMD Therapies was presented at Hawaiian Eye 2022, 15–21 January 2022.
- Could you tell us a little about the ranibizumab injection and its advantages over anti-vascular endothelial growth factor injections? (00:15)

Jordana Fein, ARVO 2023: Current therapeutic options for neovascular age-related macular degeneration
Neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) is an advanced form of macular degeneration that historically has accounted for the majority of vision loss related to AMD. Current treatment consists of injecting inhibitors of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) into the vitreous cavity to interfere with proliferation of choroidal neovascularization and to reduce vascular permeability. It was […]
