|We used siRNA directed against vegfr1 mRNA to investigate the role of VEGFR1 in ocular neovascularization. After evaluating many siRNAs, Sirna-027 was identified. In a CNV model, intravitreous or periocular injections of Sirna-027 resulted in significant reductions in the area of NV. In mice with ischemic retinopathy, intravitreous injection of Sirna-027 reduced retinal NV by 32%.
