Relieving the Treatment Burden: Insights Into the Future of Anti-angiogenic
Therapies for Neovascular AMD

ACTIVITY OVERVIEW:
This symposium will review current challenges associated with frequent anti-vascular
endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapy, including the impact on patients, caregivers,
and treating physicians. We will discuss the impact of undertreatment on visual acuity.
Finally, we will explore new anti-VEGF and other anti-angiogenic compounds that are in
development, including their pharmacologic properties, mode of action, latest safety and
efficacy data, and promise of greater durability.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
After attending this activity, participants will demonstrate the ability to:
• Compare the safety and efficacy of the different anti-VEGF treatment regimens both in
clinical trial and real-world settings
• Explain the multiple facets of treatment burden for neovascular age-related macular
degeneration (AMD)
• Consider the medical needs and treatment burden for specific patients to individualize
therapeutic strategies
• Review the pharmacologic properties and modes of action of anti-angiogenic
compounds in late clinical development
• Review safety and efficacy data from clinical trials for anti-angiogenic therapies in
development with special emphasis on phase 3 clinical programs
