Ranibizumab
Ranibizumab is made from a human antibody fragment. It works by keeping new blood vessels from forming under the retina (a sensory membrane that lines the inside of the eye). In people with certain types of eye disorders, new blood vessels grow under the retina where they leak blood and fluid. Ranibizumab ophthalmic (for the eyes) is used to treat the "wet form" of age-related macular degeneration. Ranibizumab is also used to treat swelling in the retina caused by diabetes or by a blockage in the blood vessels. Ranibizumab may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
