The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of pegaptanib (Macugen®) for neovascular (exudative) age-related macular degeneration (AMD) when the first dose is administered to the submacular space instead of vitreous body in cases when previous state-of-the-art treatment for the AMD was deemed ineffective.
Age-related Macular Degeneration
Drug: Pegaptanib (Macugen®)
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||Subretinal Macugen® for Neovascular Age-Related Macular Degeneration (SUMANA)
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Proportion of patients who had lost fewer than 15 letters of visual acuity at 54 weeks [ Time Frame: 54 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Mean change from baseline in total size of lesion and total size of CNV at 12, 24 and 54 weeks [ Time Frame: week 24 and 54 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Changes in best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) from baseline at 54 weeks [ Time Frame: 54 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Mean change from baseline in at week 12 and 24 [ Time Frame: week 12 and 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Proportion of patients who gain ≥ 5, 10, 15 letters of BCVA from baseline at week 24 and 54 [ Time Frame: week 24 and 54 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Proportion of patients who lose less than 15 letters of BCVA from baseline at week 24 and 54 [ Time Frame: week 24 and 54 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Change in area of leakage at 12, 24 and 54 weeks [ Time Frame: weeks 12, 24 and 54 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Mean change in retinal thickness by OCT at center of fovea at 12, 24 and 54 weeks [ Time Frame: weeks 12, 24 and 54 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

|Genders Eligible for Study:
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
- Adults aged 50 years and older with neovascular AMD proven by FA
- Patients who at baseline
- Have a BCVA letter score in the study eye between 20/40 to 20/320 using an ETDRS chart measured at 4 meters or Snellen equivalent
