The purpose of this study is to evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of intravitreal (ITV) injections of RG6147 administered every 4 weeks (Q4W) or every 8 weeks (Q8W) in participants with geographic atrophy (GA) secondary to age-related macular degeneration (AMD) who completed the parent study (NCT03972709/GR40973).

Open to people ages 60 years and up

  • Completed the parent study (NCT03972709/GR40973) through the Week 76 visit without early treatment discontinuation
  • Sufficiently clear ocular media, adequate pupillary dilation, and fixation to permit acceptable fundus imaging.

Ocular Inclusion Criteria: Study Eye - If the study eye best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) letter score is ≥69 letters (Snellen equivalent of 20/40 or better), the non-study eye must have a BCVA letter score of ≥44 letters (Snellen equivalent of 20/125 or better) on visit Day 1 of the open label extension (OLE)/Week 76 of parent study.

Ocular Inclusion Criteria: Non-Study Eye

  • The non-study eye must have a BCVA letter score of ≥44 letters (Snellen equivalent of 20/125 or better) if the study eye BCVA letter score is ≥69 letters (Snellen equivalent of 20/40 or better) on visit Day 1 OLE/Week 76 of parent study.
