Trial record 2 of 7 for:    EVEREST II

Visual Outcome in Patients With Symptomatic Macular PCV Treated With Either Ranibizumab as Monotherapy or Combined With Verteporfin Photodynamic Therapy. (EVEREST II)

This study has been completed.
Sponsor:
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Novartis ( Novartis Pharmaceuticals )
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01846273
First received: April 29, 2013
Last updated: May 2, 2017
Last verified: May 2017
  Purpose
This study will compare the effect of ranibizumab administered as monotherapy versus ranibizumab administered in combination with verteporfin PDT on visual acuity in patients with symptomatic macular PCV. The results of this study will provide long-term safety and efficacy data used to generate further guidance on the management of patients with PCV.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from Baseline in in Visual Acuity (Letters) of the Study Eye to Month 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Month 12 ]
  • Complete polyp regression assessed by ICGA at Month 12 [ Time Frame: Month 12 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from Baseline in Visual Acuity (Letters) of the Study Eye over time [ Time Frame: Baseline to Month 24 ]
  • Gain of equal or more than 5, 10, or 15 letters in Visual Acuity of the Study Eye up to Month 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Month 24 ]
  • Loss of less than 5, 10, 15, and 30 letters in Visual Acuity in the Study Eye from baseline to Month 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Month 24 ]
  • Maintenance of Visual Acuity of the Study Eye at Month 12 and 24 compared to the time point of first treatment interruption [ Time Frame: Month 3 to Month 12 and 24 ]
  • Change in Visual Acuity (Letters) of the Study Eye at Month 12 and 24 compared to the timepoint of first treatment interruption [ Time Frame: Month 3 to Month 12 and 24 ]
  • Occurrence of complete polyp regression in the Study Eye as assessed by ICGA at Months 6 and 24 [ Time Frame: Month 6 and 24 ]
  • Presence of leakage in the Study Eye based on fluorescein angiography at Months 6, 12 and 24 [ Time Frame: Months 6,12, and ]
  • Change from Baseline in Central Subfield Retinal Thickness (CSRT) of the Study Eye over time [ Time Frame: Baseline to Month 24 ]
  • Total number of treatments with ranibizumab in the Study Eye and total number of treatments with verteporfin PDT from baseline to Month 12 and 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Month 12 and 24 ]
  • Total number of treatments in the Study Eye with ranibizumab from Month 3 to Month 12 and 24 [ Time Frame: Month 3 to Month 12 and 24 ]
  • National Eye Institute Visual Functioning Questionnaire (NEI-VFQ-25) scores at baseline, Months 3, 12, and 24, and change from baseline over time [ Time Frame: Baseline to Month 24 ]
  • Frequency and severity of ocular and non-ocular adverse events over time [ Time Frame: Screening to Month 24 ]

Primary Completion Date: March 2, 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Ranibizumab plus verteporfin PDT
After treatment initiation with combination therapy of ranibizumab and verteporfin PDT, re-treatment need with either ranibizumab alone or combined with verteporfin PDT will be determined at monthly visits based on defined retreatment criteria
Drug: Ranibizumab
Intravitreal injections or 0.5 mg ranibizumab
Drug: Verteporfin PDT
Infusion of 30 ml verteporfin in 5% dextrose solution followed by 83 sec of laser light (50J/cm2; 600mW/cm2; 689 nm)
Active Comparator: Ranibizumab monotherapy
After treatment initiation with combination therapy of ranibizumab and sham PDT, re-treatment need with either ranibizumab alone or combined with sham PDT will be determined at monthly visits based on defined retreatment criteria.
Drug: Ranibizumab

Drug: Sham PDT
Infusion of 30 ml 5% dextrose solution followed by 83 sec of laser light (50J/cm2; 600mW/cm2; 689 nm)
