New regimen for the treatment of macular degeneration proves to be effective and reduces pressure on the health system

A study carried out at Hospital Clínic has proven the clinical effectiveness of a new protocolised treatment regimen for age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The new protocol, with fixed-regimen intraocular injections, has proven to be effective and, in addition, it is more practical both for the clinical management of patients and the management of public health resources.
