This is a randomized, double-blind, two-group parallel, positive-controlled clinical Phase I trial comparing the safety, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and efficacy of CMAB818 and Lucentis in patients with wet age-related macular degeneration.


This is a phase I, randomized, double-blind, two-group parallel, positive-controlled clinical trial at four sites. Subjects will be sequentially enrolled according to the protocol in one of two cohorts and receive a single 0.5mg of CMAB818 or Lucentis through intravitreal injection.

The primary objective is to assess the initial clinical safety of intravitreal injection of CMAB818 or Lucentis in patients with wet age-related macular degeneration (wet-AMD).

The secondary objective are to assess immnogenicity, pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamics and the initial clinical efficacy of intravitreal injection of CMAB818 or Lucentis in patients with wet age-related macular degeneration (wet-AMD).

Aphakia (excluding intraocular lenses) or rupture of the posterior lens capsule in the target eye [except for yttrium aluminum garnet (YAG) laser posterior capsulotomy after intraocular lens implantation]
History of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment or macular hole retinal detachment (stage 3 or 4), with retinal detachment, retinal pigment epithelial tear, or retinal traction in the macular area and epiretinal disease in the macular area in the target eye
Current use or may need to use systemic drugs that can cause crystal toxicity, such as psoralen, risedronate sodium, tamoxifen, etc
