- Photon Study of a High-Dose Aflibercept in Participants With Diabetic Eye DiseaseThe primary objective of the study is to determine if treatment with high-dose aflibercept (HD) at intervals of 12 or 16 weeks provides non-inferior best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) compared to aflibercept dosed every 8 weeks.The secondary objectives of the study are as follows:To determine the effect of HD vs. aflibercept on anatomic and other visual measures of responseTo evaluate the safety, immunogenicity, and pharmacokinetics (PK) of afliberceptSponsors: Regeneron Pharmaceuticals & BayerRead about the study on clinicaltrials.gov, here.
- Kingfisher Study Efficacy and Safety of Brolucizumab vs Aflibercept in Patients With Visual Impairment Due to Diabetic Macular Edema (DME) The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of brolucizumab vs. aflibercept in the treatment of patients with visual impairment due to DME. In this 12-month, randomized, double-masked, multicenter, active controlled study, consenting patients will be randomized in a 2:1 ratio (brolucizumab: aflibercept) and attend 15 planned visits.

- Protocol AC Study
- ILUVIEN® (Paladin) StudyA Phase 4 Safety Study of IOP Signals in Patients Treated With ILUVIEN® (Fluocinolone Acetonide Intravitreal Implant) 0.19 mg ILUVIEN is a microimplant designed to release a continuous, low-dose treatment to the retina for up to 36 months to help maintain consistent vision longer.
