  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   55 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Adult patients ≥55 years of age inclusive
  • Evidence of AMD confirmed by the presence of at least 1 druse ≥125 μm diameter
  • Well-demarcated GA due to AMD of total area 1.9-17 mm2 measured in the study eye
  • Best-corrected visual acuity score of ≥ 35 letters (approximately 20/200 Snellen VA equivalent or better) in the study eye

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Additional eye disease in the study eye that could compromise assessment of best-corrected visual acuity or imaging of the posterior pole
  • History of CNV secondary to AMD in the study eye
  • Any previous treatment for AMD in the study eye, approved or investigational, with the exception of dietary supplements
  • Risk of cerebrovascular disease, cerebral hemorrhage or stroke
  • History of systemic autoimmune disease
  • Use of platelet anti-aggregants or anti-coagulants (aspirin up to 325 mg/day is allowable, or in subjects allergic or intolerable to aspirin, clopidogrel up to 75 mg/day is allowable)
  • Use of chronic corticosteroids
  • Uncontrolled hypertension in spite of antihypertensive medications
  • Renal or hepatic insufficiency or clinically significant anemia
