Study Description

The purpose of this phase IV study is to identify innovative early imaging parameters as predictors of the long-term clinical response to brolucizumab in terms of fluid resolution in patients with wet Age-related Macular Degeneration (wAMD) with the purpose to evaluate their potential in supporting the treatment regimen choice (q12w or q8w).

Eligibility Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

Signed written informed consent must be obtained prior to participation in the study
Active choroidal neo-vascularization (CNV) secondary to AMD that affects the central subfield, including retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP) with a CNV component, confirmed by presence of active leakage from CNV seen by fluorescein angiography (or other imaging modalities) and sequelae of CNV, e.g. pigment epithelial detachment (PED), subretinal or sub-retinal pigment epithelium (sub-RPE) hemorrhage, blocked fluorescence, macular edema in the study eye at Screening;
Presence of intraretinal fluid (IRF) or subretinal fluid (SRF) affecting the central subfield (study eye), as seen by SD-OCT in the study eye at Screening;
Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) score greater than or equal to 23 letters measured at 4-meters starting distance using Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (EDTRS) visual acuity charts at both Screening and Baseline visits in the study eye.

Exclusion Criteria:

Any active intraocular or periocular infection or active intraocular inflammation (e.g. infectious conjunctivitis, keratitis, scleritis, endophthalmitis, infectious blepharitis) in study eye at Screening or Baseline;
Not interpretable OCTA and SD-OCT images according to Investigator's clinical judgment at Screening in the study eye;
Concomitant conditions or ocular disorders in the study eye, at Screening or Baseline which, in the opinion of the Investigator, could prevent response to study treatment or may confound interpretation of study results, compromise visual acuity or require planned medical or surgical intervention during the course of the study;
Uncontrolled glaucoma in the study eye defined as intraocular pressure (IOP) > 25 mmHg on medication or according to Investigator's judgment at Screening or Baseline;
Previous treatment with any anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)) drugs or investigational drugs (other than vitamin supplements) in the study eye at any time prior to Screening;
Systemic anti-VEGF therapy at any time;
Stroke or myocardial infarction in the 6-month period prior to Baseline.
