NeoVista, Inc. Presents New Data on Its Novel Wet AMD Therapy at AAO
Date:11/12/2007

this study demonstrated its differences from previous attempts by the medical community to use radiation for the treatment of wet AMD. Additional on-going studies may well confirm the viability of this new therapeutic option for the elderly with wet AMD."

Unlike previous forms of radiation therapy for Wet AMD, NeoVista's approach delivers the peak dose of radiation directly to the lesion without damaging the underlying choroidal vasculature. Utilizing strontium-90, the focused radiation is delivered to a target area 3 mm in depth and up to 5.4 mm in diameter. Importantly for patients, the systemic exposure to radiation is minimal, as the effective dose to the entire body from NeoVista's epiretinal device is comparable to 15 minutes of exposure to the sun.

"The ultimate promise of this therapy revolves around that fact that NeoVista's targeted radiation delivery system allows patients to continue living their lives, with significantly less injections, while also having the potential to save both patients and the healthcare system billions of dollars," said John N. Hendrick, President and CEO of NeoVista. "We look forward to unveiling the true impact of our therapy on patients and physicians now that our larger CABERNET trial is underway."

The CABERNET (CNV Secondary to AMD Treated with BEta RadiatioN Epiretinal Therapy) trial is a multi-center, randomized, controlled study which will enroll 450 subjects at 30 sites worldwide (20 in the United States). The study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of NeoVista's beta radiation epiretinal therapy delivered concomitantly with the FDA approved antiangiogenic therapy, Lucentis(R), versus Lucentis(R) alone.
