Two-Year CATT Study of Results for Avastin vs. Lucentis in Treating Wet AMD
May 2, 2012
The NEI and the CATT Study Group have just released the two-year results of the CATT Study, comparing Avastin and Lucentis for the treatment of wet AMD. Basically, after two years, there is no significant difference either between the two drugs or the dosing methods studied – once monthly or as needed.
There were slightly more adverse events in those patients using Avastin than Lucentis, but the study’s authors concluded that the differences were not specifically associated with the use of Avastin, but more likely due to the age of the subjects in the study – a median age of 80 years.
