How Fovista Works to Increase Vision in the Treatment of Wet AMD: The Science Behind the Combined Therapy

July 5, 2012

Dr. Weitzner has written about the combined therapy of Fovista and Lucentis in this post.

And I have previously written how impressed I was when I read Dr. Pravin Dugel’s writeup about how the combination therapy of an anti-VEGF and an anti-PDGF can dramatically increase vision in the treatment of wet AMD – see my AMD Update 19. Now, thanks to the good folks at Ophthotec, I have written and illustrated how the science behind this combined therapy works.

To understand how Fovista combined with Lucentis or Eylea works to increase vision in the treatment of wet AMD , follow this link.
