Study Summary

This trial is testing a gene therapy product, ADVM-022, for the treatment of neovascular or wet age-related macular degeneration (nAMD). The product 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.

Eligible Conditions

Frequently Asked Questions

These questions and answers are submitted by anonymous patients, and have not been verified by our internal team.

What are the main goals that researchers are hoping to achieve with this clinical trial?

"The primary objective of this study, as measured over a 50-week period, is to evaluate the mean change in best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) from baseline. In addition to the primary outcome, this trial will also be assessing secondary outcomes including mean change in BCVA from baseline (as measured by ETDRS), percentage of participants who are supplemental aflibercept injection-free (defined as no supplemental anti-VEGF treatments required post therapy), and percentage of participants without CST fluctuations > 50 μm (defined as no significant changes in central subfield thickness)."

Answered by AI

Can new volunteers still sign up for this experiment?

"Yes, according to the clinicaltrials.gov website, this study is looking for patients right now. The listing says that the trial was first posted on 8/23/2022 and edited on 9/8/2022. They are recruiting for 72 participants from 5 different locations."

Answered by AI

When might we see ADVM-022 on the market?

"ADVM-022 falls into the Phase 2 category, which means that while there is evidence of safety, none exists yet for efficacy. Consequently, we have given it a score of 2."

Answered by AI

What is the total sample size for this research project?

Why did patients apply to this trial?

Trying for better vision in left eye. The injecdtons worked for a few years but now the eye with wet AMD has become dry and I am searching for something to to help.
PatientReceived no prior treatments
I have AMD and want to: 1) keep it from progressing if I can, and 2) help us all to find ways to treat and even lessen the risk of AMD. I am at high risk of going blind from AMD. My mother and all 3 of her sisters had AMD, but my sisters and cousins to not.
