Brief Summary:
This is a randomised, double-masked, parallel group, multicentre study to evaluate the efficacy, safety, PK, and immunogenicity of SB15 compared to Eylea® in subjects with neovascular AMD.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Neovascular Age-related Macular Degeneration Drug: SB15 (Proposed aflibercept biosimilar) Drug: Eylea (Aflibercept) Phase 3

Detailed Description:
Subjects will be randomised in a 1:1 ratio to receive either SB15 or Eylea® (administered via intravitreal [IVT] injection 2 mg [0.05 mL] every 4 weeks for the first 3 months (i.e., at Weeks 0, 4, and 8), followed by 2 mg [0.05 mL] once every 8 weeks). At Week 32, subjects in Eylea® treatment group will be randomised again in a 1:1 ratio to either continue on Eylea® treatment or be transitioned to SB15 treatment. In the 8-week treatment cycle, IPs (SB15 or Eylea®) will be administered up to Week 48, and the last assessment will be done at Week 56, corresponding to the end of follow-up for all subjects.

Drug: SB15 (Proposed aflibercept biosimilar)
Subjects randomized into SB15 group will receive SB15 2 mg (0.05 mL) via intravitreal injection every 4 weeks for the first 3 months, followed by 2 mg (0.05 mL) once every 8 weeks until Week 48. Starting at Week 32, subjects transited from Eylea to SB15 will receive SB15 2 mg (0.05 mL) via intravitreal injection every 8 weeks.

Active Comparator: Eylea (Aflibercept)

Subjects randomized into Eylea group will receive Eylea 2 mg (0.05 mL) via intravitreal injection every 4 weeks for the first 3 months, followed by 2 mg (0.05 mL) once every 8 weeks until Week 48.

At Week 32, subjects in Eylea group will re-randomized into SB15 or Eylea group. After re-randomization, subjects transited to SB15 group will receive SB15 2 mg (0.05 mL) once every 8 weeks until Week 48 and subjects remaining in Eylea group will continue to receive Eylea 2 mg (0.05 mL) once every 8 weeks until Week 48.

Drug: SB15 (Proposed aflibercept biosimilar)
Subjects randomized into SB15 group will receive SB15 2 mg (0.05 mL) via intravitreal injection every 4 weeks for the first 3 months, followed by 2 mg (0.05 mL) once every 8 weeks until Week 48. Starting at Week 32, subjects transited from Eylea to SB15 will receive SB15 2 mg (0.05 mL) via intravitreal injection every 8 weeks.

Drug: Eylea (Aflibercept)
Subjects randomized into Eylea group will receive Eylea 2 mg (0.05 mL) via intravitreal injection every 4 weeks for the first 3 months, followed by 2 mg (0.05 mL) once every 8 weeks until Week 48.




Primary Outcome Measures :
