The anti-VEGF medicines include ranibizumab, pegaptanib, aflibercept and bevacizumab. The photodynamic therapy uses verteporfin injection is used to destroy abnormal growth of blood vessels which halts the growth of AMD. The multivitamin therapy is suggested by National Eye Institute, of the U.S. National Institutes of Health for age-related macular degeneration. I-Caps (Alcon, Inc.) and PreserVision (Bausch &Lomb, Inc.) are the two available marketed preparations for AMD made using the AREDS formula.Geographically, the global macular degeneration therapeutics market is segmented into four major regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia- Pacific and Rest of the World.According to American Academy of Ophthalmology, more than 11 million people in America are affected by AMD and are now benefiting from advanced treatment options such as anti-VEGF agents and photodynamic therapy (PDT). However, these therapies comes at higher costs which is expected to help expand the North America AMD therapeutics market. For instance, a single intravitreal injection of anti-VEGF agent such as ranibizumab costs around USD 2000. In addition, as the baby boomers generation in the country has turned 65 years, a sharp rise in age-related macular degeneration is expected which shall further propel the market. The Asia-Pacific region accounts for more than one third of the macular generation cases globally and the prevalence is estimated to increase more rapidly than in Europe and Americas and therefore the market for AMD therapeutics Asia-Pacific will be significantly greater at the end of the forecast period.
