It is generally acknowledged that the ocular safety profile of intravitreal anti-VEGF drugs is acceptable, while the burden of systemic safety of these intravitreal agents is still being debated.

Abstract

It is generally acknowledged that the ocular safety profile of intravitreal anti-VEGF drugs is acceptable, while the burden of systemic safety of these intravitreal agents is still being debated. The evaluation of the systemic safety of these drugs using real-world data (RWD), such as spontaneous reporting systems (SRS), electronic medical records (EMRs) and claims databases has several advantages, including the capture of outcomes among real-world populations over long observational periods. Nevertheless, there is a relatively small body of research exploring the post-marketing safety of these drugs.
