Brief Summary:

Purpose and rationale: To demonstrate similar efficacy, safety and immunogenicity of SOK583A1 and Eylea EU as per Eylea approved treatment regimen in patients with nAMD.

The primary clinical question of interest is: Does SOK583A1 have similar efficacy as Eylea EU in terms of mean change in BCVA score in participants with nAMD who are anti-VEGF naive, without important protocol deviations and adherent to the treatment and completed the treatment to Week 8?

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: SOK583A1 (40 mg/mL)
Intravitreal (IVT) administration of 2 mg of SOK583A1 in the study eye, every 4 weeks (q4w) at Baseline, Week 4 and Week 8, and thereafter every 8 weeks (q8w) at week 16, 24, 32, 40 and 48.
Biological: SOK583A1 (40 mg/mL)
IVT administration of 2 mg of SOK583A1 in the study eye, every 4 weeks (q4w) at Baseline, Week 4 and Week 8, and thereafter every 8 weeks (q8w) at week 16, 24, 32, 40 and 48.

Active Comparator: Eylea EU (40 mg/mL)

IVT administration of 2 mg of SOK583A1 in the study eye, every 4 weeks (q4w) at Baseline, Week 4 and Week 8, and thereafter every 8 weeks (q8w) at week 16, 24, 32, 40 and 48.

EU: European

Biological: Eylea EU (40 mg/mL)
IVT administration of 2 mg of Eylea in the study eye, every 4 weeks (q4w) at Baseline, Week 4 and Week 8, and thereafter every 8 weeks (q8w) at week 16, 24, 32, 40 and 48.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Best-Corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA) will be assessed using the ETDRS testing charts at an initial distance of 4 meters. The change from Baseline in BCVA in letters is defined as difference between BCVA score between Week 8 and Baseline. [ Time Frame: Change from baseline in mean BCVA score at Week 8 ]

    The primary aim of the study is to demonstrate equivalence of change in BCVA score from Baseline at Week 8 between participants with nAMD treated with SOK583A1 and participants treated with Eylea EU. The primary analysis will be performed on the Per-Protocol Set (PPS), which is the most appropriate analysis set to use when testing for equivalence.

  27. History of a medical condition (including, but not limited to chronic disease immunosuppression, metabolic dysfunction, prior exposure to other drugs that may pose risk of infection or allergic reactions) that, in the judgment of the Investigator, would preclude scheduled study visits, completion of the study, or a safe administration of investigational product, or that might affect participant safety or interpretation of the study results.
  28. Pregnant or nursing (lactating) women and women of child-bearing potential, defined as all women physiologically capable of becoming pregnant, unless they are using highly effective methods of contraception while taking study treatment and for 3 months after stopping the medication. Highly effective contraception methods include:

    • Female sterilization (have had surgical bilateral oophorectomy with or without hysterectomy), total hysterectomy or tubal ligation at least six weeks before taking investigational drug. In case of oophorectomy alone, only when the reproductive status of the woman has been confirmed by follow up hormone level assessment.
    • Male sterilization (at least 6 months prior to screening). For female participants on the study, the vasectomized male partner should be the sole partner for that participant.
    • Use of oral (estrogen and progesterone), injected or implanted hormonal methods of contraception or other forms of hormonal contraception that have comparable efficacy (failure rate <1%), for example hormone vaginal ring or transdermal hormone contraception or placement of an intrauterine device (IUD) or intrauterine system (IUS).
