Authors' objectives: To assess the available evidence on the efficacy, safety and coverage policy related aspects on the use of aflibercept in patients with age-related macular degeneration and central retinal artery thrombosis.
Authors' recommendations: The evidence found for wet AMD was of very high methodological quality. All the aflibercept doses and schemes evaluated were as effective as ranibizumab (standard treatment) for the treatment of wet AMD patients. No evidence was found supporting aflibercept in patients with central retinal vein occlusion.
