VEGF and axial length (RVU)

The authors of this paper set out to examine whether the concentrations of VEGF in the vitreous were associated with refractive error and axial length in eyes without retinal disease, except of macular holes or epiretinal membranes. A vitreous sample...

Atrophy and anti-VEGF

The aim of this study was to investigate treatment factors, along with ocular and systemic factors for their association with macular atrophy (MA) incidence in eyes with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) treated with anti-VEGF aflibercept or ranibizumab according to...

ROP anti-VEGF treatment review

The purpose of this review was to consider data relating to risks and benefits of the use of anti-VEGF treatment for retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) over the past five years of 2015-2020. Ocular benefits include treatment of aggressive posterior ROP,...

Systemic pharmacology of intravitreal anti-VEGF

This study aimed to evaluate and compare serum drug concentrations and plasma free-VEGF concentrations in patients with AMD, DME, or RVO receiving intravitreal injections of aflibercept, bevacizumab or ranibizumab. This prospective study enrolled patients from several offices of a single...

Combined anti-VEGF and PDT for wet AMD

The authors report on a retrospective case series of combined anti-VEGF and photodynamic therapy (PDT) in the treatment of wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) refractory to anti-VEGF monotherapy alone. The criteria for treatment failure of anti-VEGF monotherapy were persistent subretinal...

Effect of anti-VEGF treatment on PED morphology

This retrospective study of 30 eyes assessed the effect of anti-VEGF on morphology of pigment epithelial detachments (PED) secondary to age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Thirty eyes of 28 patients with PED were compared to 30 eyes of 30 patients with...

The effects of anti-VEGF therapy for NvAMD on retinal vasculature

This retrospective consecutive case series examined 54 eyes of 54 treatment-naïve neovascular age-related macular degeneration (N-AMD) patients. Thirty-three eyes received intravitreal aflibercept injections, and 21 eyes received intravitreal ranibizumab injections with unaffected fellow eyes (54 eyes) as controls. All image...

Endophthalmitis after intravitreal anti-VEGF injection

The authors report the results of a retrospective multicentre study conducted at 17 retina referral centres to investigate the microbial spectrum of endophthalmitis after anti-VEGF injections. A total of 83 cases of culture-positive endophthalmitis (58.4%) were included. The most frequent...

OCT biomarkers in asymmetric anti-VEGF response in bilateral diabetic macular oedema

This study aimed to identify optical coherence tomography (OCT) biomarkers for predicting response to anti-VEGF treatment in diabetic macular oedema (DMO). Bilateral DMO patients with asymmetric response to a loading dose of anti-VEGF (ranibizumab / aflibercept) treatment were retrospectively studied....

Can intravitreal anti-VEGF injections affect corneal nerves?

This was a retrospective case-control study looking at the effect of anti-VEGF injections on corneal nerves (CN). Fifty-seven patients with a history of at least three anti-VEGF injections in one or both eyes and available confocal microscopic imaging were included...

Licence to save: a UK survey of anti-VEGF use for the eye

This comment article highlights the controversy that exists in the choice for anti-VEGF drugs used for treatment of macular oedema and wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Two existing licensed drugs for macular oedema are ranibizumab (Lucentis) and aflibercept (Eylea). A...

21st Century retinal laser treatment in the anti-VEGF era

In today’s world, macular laser treatment has a vital role in the treatment of diabetic macular oedema (DMO). DMO is one of the most common causes of visual impairment. Despite expensive intravitreal treatment courses of anti-VEGF, many will agree that...
