She was treated with intravitreous

Two phase 3 clinical trials demonstrated that a single intravitreous
injection of ovine hyaluronidase was not associated with any serious safety issues and hyaluronidase had some therapeutic utility in the management of vitreous hemorrhage.
This need has led to the development of drug products such as Macugen and Lucentis, which are administered by direct intravitreous
delivery to the target tissues--the retina and choroid.

injections of pegaptanib, an agent that blocks the activity of vascular endothelial growth factor, arrests the loss of visual acuity in patients with age-related macular degeneration due to choroidal neovascularization, according to Evangelos S.
Glymbia, Alexander Kennedy and Gary Abrams of Wayne State University, Kresge Eye Institute in Detroit and Raymond Iezzi of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, used pSivida's Durasert technology to study the neuroprotective properties of low-dose sustained-release intravitreous

In particular, this session will discuss the evidence for intravitreous
aflibercept which has the potential to offer new treatment options for patients with RVO.
