Study Description

This study is a prospective, observational, non-interventional, multicenter, open-label, single arm study in nAMD patients being treated for nAMD with brolucizumab according to the SmPC.

An observational study design, without a strict, mandated visit schedule or mandated treatment regimen was chosen as the most appropriate to collect available data in a real life setting. For that reason, this NIS does not impose a therapy protocol, diagnostic/therapeutic procedure or a visit schedule. The diagnostic or monitoring procedures are only those ordinarily applied to the therapeutic strategy and to routine clinical care and will take place as per investigator's discretion. This includes e.g. visit frequency, injection frequency and types of assessments performed - only data from routine medical practice will be collected as part of the study.

Diagnosis of nAMD
Male and Female patients with ≥40 years of age at index
Decision to treatment with brolucizumab at baseline visit
Signed written informed consent
Patients for whom a therapy with brolucizumab is medically indicated
Intraretinal and/or subretinal fluid affecting the central subfield of the study eye at Screening

Exclusion Criteria:

Patients that have any contraindication and are not eligible for treatment with brolucizumab as according to the SmPC
Patients treated for RVO, DME, mCNV, or have diagnoses of diabetes-related macular degeneration within 6 months prior to the index date
Receipt of any anti-VEGF treatment other than brolucizumab in the study eye at index date
Central subfield of the study eye affected by fibrosis or geographic atrophy or total area of fibrosis >50% of the total lesion in the study eye at Screening
Any active intraocular or periocular infection or active intraocular inflammation in either eye at index date
Patients who have been on anti-VEGF treatment for longer than 3 years (before index date)
Any medical or psychological condition in the treating physician's opinion which may prevent the patient from the 24 months study participation
Patients participating in parallel in an interventional clinical trial
