TREND: A phase IIIb, randomized, a 12-month, Visual Acuity assessor-masked, interventional study assessing the efficacy and safety of the Treat and Extend vs monthly regimens of 0.5 mg ranibizumab in patients with newly diagnosed nAMD 19/03/2014
TREND Study: a 12-month, phase IIIb, randomized, Visual Acuity assessor-masked, multi-center, interventional study assessing the efficacy and safety of the Treat and Extend vs monthly regimens of 0.5 mg ranibizumab intravitreal (IVT) injections in patients with newly diagnosed nAMD. Patients will be randomized 1:1 into one of two treatment arms, Treat and Extend or monthly regimens.
The Study aims to demonstrate that the efficacy and safety of ranibizumab (0.5mm) in a Treat-and-Extend protocol is no less than the monthly injection protocol for the treatment of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) of a wet or exudative type.
Up to now, the medicine Lucentis has been presented in a vial and has required filling. In this trial, for the first time in Spain, Lucentis is provided in a pre-filled syringe.
