FDA Grants NeoVista's Request to Expand CABERNET Trial to 30 Sites in the U.S.
Date:4/17/2008

Agency Approves Expansion of Company's Phase 3 Study for Wet AMD after

90-day Review of Safety Data

FREMONT, Calif., April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- NeoVista, Inc. announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted the company's request to expand the number of sites participating in its pivotal Phase 3 trial from 10 to 30 in the United States. The approved expansion of CABERNET (CNV Secondary to AMD Treated with BEta RadiatioN Epiretinal Therapy) trial, which seeks to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the company's novel epiretinal brachytherapy for the wet form of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), was dependent on the FDA's review of 90-day safety data, typical of new-to-market medical devices.

"With this expansion to 30 sites, we will not only be able to recruit more patients at a higher rate, taking us one step closer to commercialization in the United States, but it will also allow additional retina specialists to see the benefits of our novel therapy first-hand while treating their patients," said John N. Hendrick, President and CEO of NeoVista. "It's an exciting time at NeoVista with our recent CE Mark approval in the EU and the FDA approval of our trial expansion. We are getting closer and closer to seeing our investigational therapy become an approved treatment option for millions of patients worldwide afflicted with wet AMD."

CABERNET is a multicenter, randomized, controlled study that will enroll 450 subjects at clinical centers worldwide. The study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of NeoVista's epiretinal brachytherapy, delivered utilizing a limited vitrectomy, concomitant with two intravitreal injections of the FDA-approved antiangiogenic therapy Lucentis(R) (ranibizumab) versus Lucentis alone. For those enrolled in the trial arm utilizing brachytherapy, Lucentis is injected once at the time of the surgery and once again 30 days later. The co-primary endpoints in the CAB
