Current Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: December 16, 2011)
Percentage of Participants Who Maintained Vision at Week 52 - Last Observation Carried Forward (LOCF) [ Time Frame: At week 52 ]
Maintenance of vision was defined as a loss of < 15 letters in the ETDRS (Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study) letter score (defined study baseline range of ETDRS Best Corrected Visual Acuity letter score of 73 to 25 (= Acuity of 20/40 to 20/320) in the study eye; a higher score represents better functioning. Nominator = (Number of participants who maintained vision * 100); Denominator = Number of participants analyzed.
Original Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: March 17, 2008)
The proportion of subjects who maintain vision at Week 52, where a subject is classified as maintaining vision if the subject has lost fewer than 15 letters on the ETDRS chart compared to baseline (ie, prevention of moderate vision loss) [ Time Frame: Week 52 ]

Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: December 16, 2011)
  • Mean Change From Baseline in Best Corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA) as Measured by ETDRS Letter Score at Week 52 - LOCF [ Time Frame: Baseline and at week 52 ]
    Defined study baseline range of ETDRS Best Corrected Visual Acuity letter score of 73 to 25 (= Acuity of 20/40 to 20/320) in the study eye; a higher score represents better functioning.
  • Percentage of Participants Who Gained at Least 15 Letters of Vision in the ETDRS Letter Score in the Study Eye at Week 52 - LOCF [ Time Frame: At week 52 ]
    Defined study baseline range of ETDRS Best Corrected Visual Acuity letter score of 73 to 25 (= Acuity of 20/40 to 20/320) in the study eye; a higher score represents better functioning. Nominator = (Number of participants who maintained vision * 100); Denominator = Number of participants analyzed.
  • Mean Change From Baseline in National Eye Institute 25-item Visual Function Questionnaire (NEI VFQ-25) Total Score at Week 52 - LOCF [ Time Frame: Baseline and at week 52 ]
    The possible range of the NEI VFQ-25 total score is between 0 (worst possible) and 100 (best possible).
  • Mean Change From Baseline in Choroidal Neovascularization (CNV) Area at Week 52 - LOCF [ Time Frame: Baseline and at week 52 ]
    CNV area values measured in square millimeters; lower values represent better outcomes.
