In wet ARMD, high concentrations of VEGF contribute to choroidal neovascularization development and substantial vision loss in patients. Wet ARMD is treated with intravitreal anti-VEGF injections which has revolutionized ARMD patient care. A new recent study has shown that some patient cases treated with anti-VEGF have in turn revealed a loss of vision but have also been linked to damage to kidney cells.
