This study will evaluate the efficacy, safety, durability, and pharmacokinetics of KSI-301 administered at 12, 16 and 20 weeks intervals as specified in the protocol, compared with aflibercept once every 8 weeks (Q8W), in participants with treatment-naïve neovascular (wet) age-related macular degeneration (nAMD).

Official Title

A Phase 2b/3, Prospective, Randomized, Double-masked, Active Comparator-controlled, Multi-center Study to Investigate the Efficacy and Safety of Repeated Intravitreal Administration of KSI-301 in Subjects With Neovascular (Wet) Age-related Macular Degeneration.


This study is divided into a 3-week screening period, a 92-week treatment period, and a final 4-week follow-up period. At baseline patients will be randomized 1:1 into two treatment arms: KSI-301 5 mg and aflibercept 2 mg. At Week 52 patients on the aflibercept treatment arm will be re-randomized 1:1 into KSI-301 5 mg and aflibercept 2 mg.
