Additional Details

Pegaptanib is indicated for the treatment of endovascular/wet age-related macular degeneration and diabetic macular edema.
As a polynucleotide aptamer Pegaptanib binds specifically to VEGF 165, which is the protein that elicits angiogenesis (and increases permeability.
Mode of Action:
Pegaptanib is a modified oligonucleotide that binds to the major pathological VEGF isoform, extracellular VEGF165, with a high affinity.
In animal studies Pegaptanib slowly absorbs into the body via an intravenous injection into the eye. Clinical data shows that Pegaptanib is metabolized by both the endo- and exonucleases.
Pegaptanib has not been studied for toxicity in pregnant women or the pediatric population. The majority of adverse effects related to Pegaptanib are and minor. A small number of patients report non-ocular events, such as headache when the procedure occurs, but this is uncommon. Pegaptanib should not be used if the patient has a periocular or ocular infection.
