Safety and Efficacy Study of Small Interfering Ribonucleic Acid (RNA) Molecule (Cand5) to Treat Wet Age-Related Macular Degeneration
A Phase II, Randomized, Double-Masked, Controlled, Dose Comparison Study of Cand5 for Intravitreal Injection for the Treatment of Subfoveal Choroidal Neovascularization Associated With Wet Age-Related Macular Degeneration

The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and preliminary efficacy of three doses of Cand5. Cand5, a small interfering RNA molecule that selectively silences the mRNA encoding for VEGF.
