Change in edema from baseline to month 6 measured by central subfield thickness on Heidelberg optical coherence topography
time frame: 6 months

Secondary Outcomes

visual acuity (best corrected visual acuity)
time frame: 6 months

Eligibility Criteria

All participants at least 18 years old.

Inclusion Criteria: - best corrected visual acuity of 5-65, inclusive, in study eye - presence of choroid neovascularization secondary to AMD - persistent edema despite at least 3 previous intravitreal anti-VEGF injections in the past 5 months Exclusion Criteria: - greater than 100 micron decrease in central subfield thickness on OCT since last standard of care visit - history of major ophthalmic surgery in the study eye in the past 3 months - history of significant ocular disease or condition other than exudative AMD that may confound results

Additional Information

Official title Sirolimus Versus AntiVEGF for Wet AMD
Principal investigator Raj K Maturi, MD
Description Thirty subjects will be randomized to receive intravitreal Sirolimus or standard of care treatment in a 1:1 ratio. Over the course of the six month trial plus a 6 month optional extention, subjects will be evaluated monthly. Treatment with Sirolimus will be given at baseline, month 2 and month 4 with sham injections given at months 1, 3 and 5. For subjects in the extension Sirolimus will also be given at months 6, 8 and 10 with sham at month 7, 9, and 11. Subjects in the standard of care group will receive anti-VEGF injections or sham monthly. Retreatment criteria will be based upon continued subretinal edema, intraretinal edema or active chorioretinal neovascularization (CNV)
