Summary
Brief summary
This study evaluates the tolerability and safety of 3 months treatment with PTK787 tablets
given daily. It also explores the efficacy of the compound in patients with wet age-related
macular edema.

In Cohort 1 verteporfin/PDT is the active control. The protocol was amended to reflect the
current standard of care for AMD. As a result, ranibizumab is the active control for Cohort
2.
