Phase 1b study of a new anti-VEFG antibody has reported BCVA gains across wet AMD, diabetic macular edema and retinal vein occlusion

A brief clinical update reporting on a new anti-VEGF antibody conjugate polymer (identified as KSI-301) has highlighted visual acuity gains with three indications – wet AMD, diabetic edema and retinal vein occlusion.  The experimental treatment has a novel higher molecular weight antibody moiety -950kDA- considerably larger than other anti-VEGF antibodies (ranibizumab [48kDa] and aflibercept [115kDa]).  […]
