Manta Study: Avastin Versus Lucentis in Age Related Macular Degeneration


Brief description of study

Angiogenesis plays a key role in the development of choroidal neovascularizations (CNV) in age-related macular degeneration. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is the most important factor involved in this angiogenetic processes in the eye. This forms the basis for new therapeutic interventions in exudative AMD. Currently two drugs have been approved by the FDA and one drug is used off-label. All these drugs are administered intravitreally. The present study aims to directly compare the effects ranibizumab and bevacizumab in a randomized controlled study in patients with neovascular AMD.
