Estimated Enrollment: 540
Study Start Date: July 2001
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2002
Detailed Description:

This will be a randomized, double-masked, controlled, dose-ranging, multi-center comparative trial, in parallel groups. Patients will be stratified by clinical center, by percentage of classic CNV vessels: [predominantly classic (>50%) vs. minimally classic (1-49%) vs. purely occult (0%)], and according to whether, or not, they have received prior PDT with Visudyne (no more than once). All patients will be re-randomized after 54 weeks of treatment to either, continue or discontinue therapy for further 48 weeks.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   50 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Patients of either gender, aged 50 years or above, diagnosed with subfoveal CNV secondary to AMD and with best corrected visual acuity of 20/40 to 20/320 in the absence of subfoveal atrophy or scarring in the study eye, and better or equal to 20/800 in the fellow eye, may be enrolled. Clinically significant concomitant diseases will be excluded.
