Open-label Extension Study of Intravitreal Aflibercept Injection (IAI; EYLEA®; BAY86-5321) in Neovascular ("Wet") Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
|Neovascular Age-related Macular Degeneration||Drug: Intravitreal Aflibercept Injection 2mg||Phase 3|
|Study Design:||Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||An Open-label, Long-term, Safety and Tolerability Extension Study of Intravitreal VEGF Trap-Eye in Neovascular Age-Related Macular Degeneration|
- Safety and Tolerability of Intravitreal Aflibercept Injection in Participants With Neovascular AMD [ Time Frame: Baseline (day 1) through end of treatment (Week 180) ]
The primary endpoint in the study is the safety and tolerability of Intravitreal Aflibercept Injection in patients with neovascular AMD (Age-related Macular Degeneration) from day 1 through the end of treatment visit (week 180) based on the number of participants who experienced any treatment-emergent adverse event (TEAE).
Treatment-emergent adverse events were categorized according to Ocular TEAEs in the study eye, Ocular TEAEs in the fellow eye, and Non-Ocular TEAEs
- Change in BCVA Letter Score (mLOCF) [ Time Frame: Baseline through Week 116 ]
The secondary endpoint in the study is the change in BCVA letter score from baseline through Week 116.
(mLOCF: The last non-missing observation prior to the missing visit was carried forward to impute the missing data; no imputation after last visit; no baseline value carried forward).

Experimental: Open-label Intravitreal Aflibercept Injection
Open-label Intravitreal Aflibercept Injection (IAI; EYLEA®; BAY86-5321) 2mg (40 mg/mL) was administered no more frequently than every 4 weeks, but no less frequently than every 12 weeks until amendment 4. Starting with amendment 4, Intravitreal Aflibercept Injection was administered no less frequently than every 8 weeks. Within these limits, the investigator would determine the interval of Intravitreal Aflibercept Injection administration on an as-needed basis according to the protocol-suggested re-treatment criteria, however the injections must have occurred at least every 12 weeks prior to amendment 4, and at least every 8 weeks starting from amendment 4 as noted above.
Drug: Intravitreal Aflibercept Injection 2mg
Other Name: IAI; EYLEA®; BAY86-5321; VEGF Trap-Eye
The dose evaluated in this study, Intravitreal Aflibercept Injection (IAI; EYLEA®; BAY86-5321) 2mg, will be the higher of the 2 dose strengths evaluated in parent study VGFT-OD-0605 (NCT00509795) and is the dose level administered in study VGFT-OD-0702 (NCT00527423), a long-term open-label extension study. For these reasons, this dose has been selected for this extension study.
Participants will be seen in the clinic for quarterly visits starting with day 1 to assess safety. Study drug will be administered on an as-needed basis at the discretion of the investigator with a minimum allowed interval of every 4 weeks and a maximum allowed interval of every 12 weeks. This study will assess the frequency that re-treatment is needed and the effect of continued Intravitreal Aflibercept Injection (IAI; EYLEA®; BAY86-5321) treatment on BCVA.
