Brief Summary:
This is a multicenter long-term extension study designed to evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of faricimab 6 milligrams (mg) administered by intravitreal injection at a personalized treatment interval to participants with neovascular age-related macular degeneration who enrolled in and completed one of the Phase III studies: GR40306 (NCT03823287) or GR40844 (NCT03823300), also referred to as the parent studies. Eligible patients who consent to participate in this study will be enrolled upon completion of the end-of-study visit in the parent study.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Neovascular Age-related Macular Degeneration Drug: Faricimab Other: Sham Procedure Phase 3

Layout table for study information
Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 1280 participants
Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Masking Description: The first 12 weeks of this study will be a masked period (to transition from the multi-arm parent studies) during which participants may receive either faricimab or sham injection. Participants and physicians will be masked only to the faricimab treatment interval. After the Week 12 treatment procedure, this study will follow an open-label design. The BCVA examiner will remain masked for the duration of this long-term extension study.
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Multicenter, Open-Label Extension Study to Evaluate the Long-Term Safety and Tolerability of Faricimab in Patients With Neovascular Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AVONELLE-X)
Actual Study Start Date : April 19, 2021
Estimated Primary Completion Date : August 9, 2024
Estimated Study Completion Date : August 9, 2024

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Faricimab Drug: Faricimab
Faricimab 6 mg will be administered by intravitreal (IVT) injection into the study eye according to the personalized treatment interval (PTI) dosing regimen for the duration of the study.
Other Names:
  • RO6867461
  • RG7716

Other: Sham Procedure
The sham is a procedure that mimics an IVT injection and involves the blunt end of an empty syringe (without a needle) being pressed against the anesthetized eye. The sham procedure will be administered to participants as appropriate during the first 12 weeks of this study in order to maintain the masking of the initial faricimab PTI.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence and Severity of Ocular Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
  2. Incidence and Severity of Systemic (Non-Ocular) Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
  3. Number of Participants with Presence of Anti-Drug Antibodies (ADAs) at Baseline and Incidence of ADAs During the Study [ Time Frame: From Baseline up to 2 years ]

Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Previous enrollment in and completion of Study GR40306 (NCT03823287) or Study GR40844 (NCT03823300), without study or study drug discontinuation
  • For women of childbearing potential: agreement to remain abstinent or use contraception, and agreement to refrain from donating eggs. Women must remain abstinent or use contraceptive methods with a failure rate of < 1% per year during the treatment period and for 3 months after the final dose of faricimab. Women must refrain from donating eggs during the same period.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Pregnant or breastfeeding, or intending to become pregnant during the study or within 28 days after the final dose of faricimab
  • Presence of other ocular diseases that give reasonable suspicion of a disease or condition that contraindicates the use of faricimab, that might affect interpretation of the results of the study or that renders the patient at high risk for treatment complications
  • Presence of other diseases, metabolic dysfunction, or clinical laboratory finding giving reasonable suspicion of a disease or condition that contraindicates the use of faricimab and that might affect interpretation of the results of the study or that renders the patient at high risk of treatment complications
  • History of a severe allergic reaction or anaphylactic reaction to a biologic agent or known hypersensitivity to any component of the faricimab injections, study-related procedure preparations, dilating drops, or any of the anesthetic and antimicrobial preparations used by a patient during the study
  • Requirement for continuous use of any medications or treatments indicated as prohibited therapy
