Objetivos: Presentar una revisión de los nuevos y posibles objetivos de tratamiento farmacológicos para la degeneración macular relacionada a la edad neovascular y el estado de los fármacos en estudios clínicos.

Diseño del estudio: Revisión de tema.

Métodos: Se realizó una búsqueda de la literatura electrónica disponible en EMBASE, PUBMED y Google Scholar acerca del tema, y se complementa con la información encontrada en y la plataforma de registros internacionales de ensayos clínicos de la O.M.S. Se procedió a sistematizar la información y se presenta en forma estructurada.

Conclusiones: Las nuevas opciones terapéuticas para la degeneración macular relacionada a la edad neovascular proporcionan múltiples objetivos farmacológicos, los cuales se alcanzan realizando modifi caciones a moléculas ya elaboradas o con nuevos fármacos los cuales pueden actuar tanto como terapia adjunta a los actuales medicamentos antiangiogénicos (anti VEGF) mejorando su efi cacia o como nuevas opciones sustitutivas. Meritorio destacar la vía de la tirosina-quinasa, la cual había sido abordada con los existentes anti VEGF, ahora se presentan nuevas opciones terapéuticas que actúan corriente abajo. Diversos fármacos se encuentran en estudios de efi cacia parcial, merecen especial mención Fovista® y conbercept de los cuales ya se encuentran en desarrollo estudios fase III.
