The objectives of this study are to evaluate the safety and efficacy of E10030 intravitreous injection when administered in combination with Lucentis® against a control of Lucentis® alone in subjects with subfoveal choroidal neovascularization secondary to age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

Condition Intervention Phase
Age-Related Macular Degeneration Drug: E10030 plus Lucentis Drug: Lucentis Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 2, Randomized, Double-Masked, Controlled Trial to Establish the Safety and Efficacy of Intravitreous Injections of E10030 (Anti-PDGF Pegylated Aptamer) Given in Combination With Lucentis in Subjects With Neovascular Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Change in Visual Acuity From Baseline at the Week 24 Visit [ Time Frame: 24 Weeks ]
    The primary efficacy endpoint is the mean change in visual acuity from baseline at the Week 24 visit

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The Proportion of Subjects Gaining 15 or More ETDRS Letters From Baseline at the Week 24 Visit [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
    The proportion of subjects gaining 15 or more ETDRS letters from baseline at the Week 24 visit

  • Proportion of Patients With at Least 1 Adverse Event [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]

Enrollment: 449
Study Start Date: March 2010
Study Completion Date: June 2012
Primary Completion Date: June 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Lucentis Drug: Lucentis
10 mg/mL intravitreal injection monthly
Experimental: E10030 low dose plus Lucentis Drug: E10030 plus Lucentis
once a month intravitreal injection
Experimental: E10030 high dose plus Lucentis Drug: E10030 plus Lucentis
once a month intravitreal injection

Detailed Description:

Subjects will be randomized in a 1:1:1 ratio to the following dose groups:

  • E10030 0.3 mg/eye + Lucentis® 0. 5 mg/eye
  • E10030 1.5 mg/eye + Lucentis® 0. 5 mg/eye
  • E10030 sham + Lucentis® 0. 5 mg/eye

Subjects will be treated with active E10030 or sham E10030 in combination with Lucentis® at Day 0, Week 4, Week 8, Week 12, Week 16 and Week 20.

Primary Efficacy Endpoint:

The primary efficacy endpoint is mean change in visual acuity from baseline at the Week 24 visit

Safety Endpoints:

Safety endpoints include adverse events, vital signs, ophthalmic variables [visual acuity, intraocular pressure (IOP), ophthalmic examination, color fundus photography, fluorescein angiograms (FA), optical coherence tomography (OCT)], and laboratory variables.

Approximately 444 subjects will be randomized into one of the three treatment cohorts (approximately 148 patients per dose group).
