Avastin v Lucentis

Does anyone know when in 2012 the new second year results from the CATT test will be available?  

Also, does anyone know if the most common protocol for myopic macular degeneration is avastin or lucentis and whether treatment is as needed or monthly?

Thanks.

I cannot give you the results of that study. It should be available on the internet if published. The debate of avastin vs lucentis has raged for years and years, maily due to the costs. Avastin in much much less expensive than lucentis. For most conditions they are equivilents.
