Eight leading retinal centers across the United States are expected to participate in the OPTIC phase 1 trial for ADVM-022.The multi-center, open-label, phase 1, dose-escalation trial is designed to assess the safety and tolerability of a single intravitreal administration
of ADVM-022 in patients with wet AMD who are responsive to anti-vascular endothelial growth factor treatment.
Similar results were shown in previous studies with intravitreal administration
