About Geographic Atrophy

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the major cause of moderate and severe loss of central vision within aging adults, affecting both eyes in the majority associated with patients. The macula will be a small area within the central portion of the retina responsible regarding central vision. As AMD progresses, the loss of retinal cells and the underlying blood vessels in the macula results within marked thinning and/or atrophy of retinal tissue. Geographic atrophy, the particular advanced stage of ADVANCED MICRO DEVICES, leads to further irreversible reduction of eyesight in these patients. There are currently no Circumstance. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or European Medicines Agency (EMA) approved treatment options available intended for patients with geographic atrophy.

Regarding Avacincaptad Pegol

Avacincaptad pegol (also known as ACP or Zimura ® ) is an investigational drug that has not been evaluated for security or effectiveness in any country. ACP is a novel complement HANDSET protein inhibitor. Overactivity associated with the complement system as well as the C5 protein are suspected to play a critical role in the development and growth of scarring and vision loss associated with geographic atrophy (GA) secondary to age-related macular degeneration (AMD). By targeting C5, ACP has the potential in order to decrease activity of the complement system that causes the deterioration of retinal cells plus potentially slow the progression of GA.

About the GATHER2 Scientific Trial

In GATHER2, 448 participants were enrolled in the international, randomized, double-masked, sham-controlled, multicenter clinical test to measure the efficacy and safety of monthly 2 mg intravitreal administration associated with ACP inside patients along with GA. For the first a year, patients were randomized to receive either ACP 2 mg or sham monthly. At 12 months, participants in the ACP arm had been re-randomized to either receive ACP two mg once monthly or even every other month until month 23 of the research. The final evaluation will take place from month twenty-four.
