    I learned late yesterday that the National Eye Institute and the
    National Institute of Health will fund a comparative study of Avastin
    vs Lucentis for treating age-related macular degeneration. I have
    posted the complete story on my web site at:
    http://irvaronsjournal.blogspot.com. Check out Update 7.

    So do we test / compare it using the same sample size as Lucentis? Or
    rather, how much smaller is this size?

    Don,

    I don't know the details of the study yet -- other than it will be a
    multicenter study, and that recruitment of patients will begin in
    January.
