About

Evaluate the effect of IONIS-FB-LRx on the rate of change of the area of geographic atrophy (GA) secondary to age-related macular degeneration (AMD) measured by fundus autofluorescence (FAF).

Full description

The study will assess the rate of change of the area of GA secondary to AMD by measuring FAF in up to 330 participants with GA due to AMD being treated with IONIS-FB-LRx. The study is a Phase 2, double-masked, randomized, stratified, placebo-controlled study conducted at multiple centers. It is an adaptive design in which three dose levels will be evaluated in a subset of participants (Stage 1) and, following an interim analysis, the number of participants in two of the dose cohorts will be expanded (Stage 2).

332 participants in 2 patient groups

IONIS-FB-LRx
Experimental group
Description:
Stage 1 participants will receive IONIS-FB-LRx randomized to 1 of 3 dose levels, administered subcutaneously every 4 weeks, completing the treatment period at Week 45. Stage 2 will expand 2 of the dosing cohorts in a new randomized group of participants based on the Stage 1 interim analysis. Participants will be randomized to 1 of 2 of the expanded cohorts, administered subcutaneously every 4 weeks, completing the treatment period at Week 45.
Treatment:
Drug: IONIS-FB-LRx
Placebo
Experimental group
Description:
Stage 1 participants will receive a placebo matching solution, administered subcutaneously every 4 weeks, completing the treatment period at Week 45. Stage 2 participants will receive a placebo matching solution, administered subcutaneously every 4 weeks, completing the treatment period at Week 45.
Treatment:
Drug: Placebo
