Workshop summary
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and inherited retinal diseases, such as geographic atrophy and retinitis pigmentosa, are leading causes of vision loss in the U.S. This workshop included the newest clinical data on inherited retinal diseases and future clinical trial designs that are aimed at developing therapies to stem vision loss.

This one-day public workshop reviewed clinical trial design considerations for AMD and inherited retinal diseases in order to develop strategies for:

  • improved trial design and endpoints based on current evidence
  • approaches to classifying and stratifying the patient population
  • clinically meaningful surrogate or interim endpoints
  • potentially impactful gaps for research funding
