Inclusion criteria

  • Overall Study Inclusion Criteria-For All Subjects:

    1. Willing and able to give informed consent, comply with all study procedures, and be likely to complete the study.

    2. Demonstrated response to prior anti-VEGF treatment since diagnosis as defined by one or more of the following:

      1. Reduction of subretinal fluid or intraretinal fluid of greater than equal to 30% from initial diagnosis as measured by SD-OCT.
      2. Elimination of prior sub-foveal fluid from initial diagnosis as measured by SD-OCT.
      3. Increase in BCVA of greater than or equal to 2 lines from initial diagnosis using Snellen scale.

      These inclusion criteria will be assessed by the Investigator for Stage 1.

    3. Female subjects may be enrolled if they are:

      1. Not pregnant, lactating, or breastfeeding
      2. Documented in medical records or patient self-reported to be surgically sterile or postmenopausal.
      3. Female subjects of childbearing potential must practice true abstinence for at least 28 days prior to investigational product (IP) administration until 30 days after the last IP administration and have a negative serum and urine pregnancy test at Screening and Baseline Day 1, respectively, or
      4. Using 2 forms of highly effective contraception, including 1 physical barrier (condom or diaphragm) plus another method, such as adequate hormonal method (eg, contraceptive implants, injectables, or oral contraceptives) or nonhormonal methods (eg, intrauterine device or spermicidals) from Screening or at least 2 weeks prior to IP administration (whichever is earlier) until 30 days after the last IP administration and having a negative serum and urine pregnancy test at Screening and Baseline Day 1, respectively.
    4. Male subjects with female partners of childbearing potential may be enrolled if they are:

      1. Documented to be surgically sterile (vasectomy) in medical records or patient self-reported, or
      2. Agree to practice true abstinence during the study and for 30 days after the last IP administration, or
      3. Agree to use 2 adequate forms of highly effective contraception during the study, 1 of which should be a physical barrier for 30 days after the last IP administration.
      4. Must agree not to donate sperm during study and for 30 days following administration of the last dose of IP.
  • Subjects With Wet AMD (For Both Stage 1 and Stage 2):

    1. Male or nonpregnant female adults aged ≥50 years at time of signing the informed consent form (ICF).
    2. BCVA letter score between 75 and 23 letters (ETDRS chart) (20/32 to 20/320 Snellen equivalents) inclusive in the study eye at baseline and BCVA letter score of at least 35 letters ETDRS chart (20/200 Snellen equivalent) in the non-study eye.
    3. For Stage 2, presence of a choroidal neovascular (CNV) lesion secondary to AMD as confirmed by the Central reader.
    4. Previously treated with at least 3 prior IVT injections and no more than 36 months of treatment with an anti-VEGF agent (aflibercept, bevacizumab, ranibizumab, or any other approved anti-VEGF agent) with last treatment between 4 and 12 weeks prior to Screening. Administration of IVT anti-VEGF agents prior to enrollment must not be more than 12 weeks apart.
    5. Decrease in vision in the study eye determined by Investigator to be primarily the result of exudation from wet AMD.
    6. Ocular media clarity, pupillary dilation, and individual cooperation sufficient for adequate fundus imaging in the opinion of the Investigator.
    7. Recurrence of subretinal fluid or increase in CST. This inclusion criteria will be confirmed by the Central Reader in Stage 2.
    8. For subjects with bilateral disease, only one eye per subject is eligible to participate in the study. In cases where both eyes are eligible, the eye with the worse BCVA at the Screening Visit will be selected as the study eye. If both eyes have the same BCVA, the decision of which eye to select as the study eye will be made by the Investigator.
  • Subjects With DME ( For Stage 1 Only):

    1. Male or nonpregnant female adults aged ≥18 years at time of signing the ICF.

    2. BCVA letter score between 75 and 23 letters (ETDRS chart) (20/32 to 20/320 Snellen equivalents) inclusive in the study eye at baseline.

    3. Diagnosis of diabetes mellitus (Type 1 or Type 2). Any of the following will be considered to be sufficient evidence that diabetes is present:

      1. Current regular use of oral anti-hyperglycemic agents for the treatment of diabetes.
      2. Current regular use of insulin or other injectable drugs (eg, dulaglutide and liraglutide) for the treatment of diabetes.
      3. Documented diabetes by American Diabetic Association (ADA) and/or World Health Organization (WHO) criteria.
    4. Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) ≤12% (historic values up to 3 months before Screening Visit will be permissible, otherwise study site may collect sample for analysis at Screening).

    5. DME defined as macular thickening by SD-OCT involving the center of the macula. A CST of ≥325 μm with Spectralis® (Heidelberg Engineering, Heidelberg, Germany) at Screening. This will be assessed by the Central Reader.

    6. Recurrence of subretinal fluid or increase in CST. This inclusion criteria to be confirmed by the Central Reader in Stage 2.

    7. The cause of the decreased vision in the study eye has been attributed primarily to DME by the Investigator.

    8. History of previous treatment in the study eye with at least 3 prior injections and no more than 36 months of treatment with an anti-VEGF agent (aflibercept, bevacizumab, ranibizumab, or any other approved anti-VEGF agent) with last treatment between 4 and 12 weeks prior to Screening. Administration of IVT anti-VEGF agents prior to enrollment must not be more than 12 weeks apart.

    9. Ocular media clarity, pupillary dilation, and individual cooperation sufficient for adequate fundus imaging in the opinion of the Investigator.

    10. For subjects with bilateral disease, only one eye per subject is eligible to participate in the study. In cases where both eyes are eligible, the eye with the worse BCVA at the Screening Visit will be selected as the study eye. If both eyes have the same BCVA, the decision of which eye to select as the study eye will be made by the Investigator.

    11. An underlying condition (including, but not limited to metabolic, hematologic, renal, hepatic, pulmonary, neurologic, endocrine, cardiac, infectious, or gastrointestinal) or history of other disease, physical examination finding or clinical laboratory finding giving reasonable suspicion of a disease or condition that contraindicates the use of study drug, might affect interpretation of the results of the study or which, in the opinion of the Investigator, renders the patient at unacceptable risk of treatment complications by participating in the trial

    12. Any major illness or surgical procedure within 1 month before Screening

    13. History of other diseases, physical examination finding, historical or current clinical lab finding giving reasonable suspicion of condition that contraindicates the use of the IP or that might affect the interpretation of the results of the study or renders the patient at high risk for treatment complications, in the opinion of the Investigator.
