Medical News / Directly from AAO 2021: Reduced Retinal Fluid Linked to Better nAMD Visual Improvements

Improved best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) gains from anti-VEGF therapy are associated with instances of lesser post-loading retinal fluid in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD), according to new findings. In new post hoc analysis data from the HAWK and HARRIER trials, presented at the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) 2021 Meeting in New Orleans, a team of investigators observed that greater BCVA gains from anti-VEGF treatment were more frequent among patients with a greater rate of fluid-free visits through week 96 of the original phase 3 trials.
