Study Summary

Neovascular or wet age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) is a degenerative ocular disease associated with the infiltration of abnormal blood vessels in the retina from the underlying choroid layer and is a leading cause of blindness in patients over 65 years of age. The abnormal angiogenic process in nAMD is stimulated and modulated by vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). Treatment of nAMD requires frequent intravitreal (IVT) injections of VEGF inhibitors (anti-VEGF) administered every 4-12 weeks. ADVM-022 (AAV.7m8-aflibercept) is a gene therapy product, being developed for the treatment of nAMD and offers the potential for sustained intraocular expression of aflibercept following a single IVT injection. ADVM-022 is designed to reduce the current treatment burden which often results in undertreatment and vision loss in patients with nAMD receiving anti-VEGF therapy in clinical practice.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
