WELCOME TO FASBAT

Observing fibrosis, macular atrophy and sub retinal highly reflective material - before and after intervention with anti-VEGF treatment - An Extension to the EDNA Study

What is FASBAT?

FASBAT is an observational extension to the EDNA study.

The EDNA study is recruiting patients newly diagnosed with “wet” (or neovascular) age-related macular degeneration. The study will collect information on how good various tests are in detecting the first signs of development of wet AMD.

Wet AMD is a condition which occurs in the macula (the centre part of the retina of the eye) which can cause irreversible sight loss if not treated quickly, therefore detecting it early so that treatment can be started as soon as possible is important to help prevent loss of sight.

The aim of the FASBAT study is to follow participants who have been recently diagnosed with wet AMD.

Patients with wet AMD in one eye have an increased likelihood of developing the condition in their second eye. The EDNA and FASBAT studies will observe the same patient population, monitoring disease progression and collecting important data. The patient exit point of the EDNA study is when wet AMD is detected in the second eye and we anticipate that this will affect approximately a quarter of the patients involved. Participants will then be monitored for a further two years as part of the FASBAT extension study.

As you have been diagnosed with wet AMD we would like to analyse information collected at your routine eye clinic visits, to look at changes in both of your eyes during your visits for your assessment and treatment. If you develop wet AMD in your second eye during the study we want to compare the changes that have occurred in both of your eyes over time. This will help us to look at any effects of your treatment on your vision and quality of life.
