Brief Summary:
This is a Phase III, multicenter, randomized, double-masked, active comparator-controlled, parallel-group study evaluating the efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics of faricimab administered by intravitreal (IVT) injection at 4-week intervals until Week 24, followed by a double-masked period of study without active control to evaluate faricimab administered according to a personalized treatment interval (PTI) dosing regimen in patients with macular edema due to central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) or hemiretinal vein occlusion (HRVO).

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Arm A: Faricimab Q4W (Part 1), Faricimab PTI (Part 2)
In Part 1 (Day 1 through Week 24), participants randomly assigned to Arm A will receive faricimab 6 milligrams (mg) by IVT injection once every 4 weeks (Q4W) from Day 1 through Week 20 (a total of 6 injections). In Part 2 (from Week 24 to Week 72), participants will receive faricimab 6 mg by IVT injection according to a personalized treatment interval (PTI) dosing regimen. To preserve masking for Part 2, a sham procedure will be administered during study visits at which no faricimab treatment is administered (according to the PTI dosing regimen).
Drug: Faricimab
Faricimab will be administered by intravitreal (IVT) injection as specified in each treatment arm.
Other Names:
  • RG7716
  • RO6867461

Procedure: Sham Procedure
The sham is a procedure that mimics an IVT injection, but involves the blunt end of an empty syringe (without a needle) being pressed against the anesthetized eye. It will be administered to participants in both treatments arms at applicable visits to maintain masking.

Active Comparator: Arm B: Aflibercept Q4W (Part 1), Faricimab PTI (Part 2)
In Part 1 (Day 1 through Week 24), participants randomly assigned to Arm B will receive aflibercept 2 milligrams (mg) by IVT injection once every 4 weeks (Q4W) from Day 1 through Week 20 (a total of 6 injections). In Part 2 (from Week 24 to Week 72), participants will receive faricimab 6 mg by IVT injection according to a personalized treatment interval (PTI) dosing regimen. To preserve masking for Part 2, a sham procedure will be administered during study visits at which no faricimab treatment is administered (according to the PTI dosing regimen).
Drug: Faricimab
Faricimab will be administered by intravitreal (IVT) injection as specified in each treatment arm.
Other Names:
  • RG7716
  • RO6867461

Drug: Aflibercept
Aflibercept 2 mg will be administered by IVT injection once every 4 weeks (Q4W) from Day 1 through Week 20 (a total of 6 injections).
Other Name: Eylea

Procedure: Sham Procedure
The sham is a procedure that mimics an IVT injection, but involves the blunt end of an empty syringe (without a needle) being pressed against the anesthetized eye. It will be administered to participants in both treatments arms at applicable visits to maintain masking.
