Macular Telangiectasia (MacTel) Understanding

Macular Telangiectasia (MacTel): Overview

Macular Telangiectasia (MacTel) (MacTel) is a disease affecting the macula, causing loss of central vision. MacTel develops when there are problems with the tiny blood vessels around the fovea. There are two types of MacTel, Type 1 MacTel and Type 2 MacTel. In MacTel type 1, the blood vessels become dilated and leads to tiny aneurysms, causing swelling and damaging macular cells. The disease almost always occurs in one eye, which differentiates it from Type 2. Type 2 MacTel is the most common form. In MacTel type 2 the capillaries around the fovea widen (become dilated) and leak. This causes fluid build-up and swelling, impairing reflection of light and causing progressive vision loss. As damage continues, new blood vessels may form, which can break and leak. This can lead to the development of scar tissue, further impairing central vision. MacTel type 2 affects both eyes and occurs most often in middle-aged adult.


In the early stages, people with MacTel will have no symptoms. As the disease progresses, blurring, distorted vision, and loss of central vision are common. Loss of central vision progresses over a period of 10 – 20 years. MacTel does not affect side vision and does not usually cause total blindness.


A diagnosis of Macular Telangiectasia (MacTel) is made based upon a thorough assessment of vision, and a variety of specialized tests. A small, fine crystals in the center of your macula is a sign of MacTel. Other findings are discoloration of the macula, abnormal blood vessels in the center of the macula, lipid (fat) deposits, and pigment clumps. Testing with an Amsler grid is done to detect any wavy or dark areas in central vision. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) and fluorescein angiography (FA) are done to check the conditions of retina.


Treatment options for Macular Telangiectasia (MacTel) are limited. The variable course of progression of the disease makes it difficult to assess the efficacy of treatments. Treatment for MacTel in the absence of retinal neovascularization is supportive, as there is currently no proven therapy has been shown to prevent progression. Macular grid laser photocoagulation, photodynamic therapy, and intravitreal injections of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) antagonists have been tried. Currently there are new therapies under development for the treatment of Macular Telangiectasia (MacTel).

Macular Telangiectasia (MacTel) Emerging Drugs Chapters

This segment of the Macular Telangiectasia (MacTel) report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase III, II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

Macular Telangiectasia (MacTel) Emerging Drugs

NT-501: Neurotech Pharmaceuticals

NT-501 (Renexus) is an encapsulated cell therapy for treatment of Macular Telangiectasia (MacTel). NT-501 is currently in Phase 3, randomized, multi-center study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the Renexus implants in participants with Macular Telangiectasia (MacTel) type 2. NT-501 is a novel cell-based drug-delivery system in which human-derived cells encapsulated in a semipermeable hollow fiber membrane device release ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF). NT 501 was granted orphan drug status for retinal (macular) telangiectasia type 2 by the FDA in July 2012. In February 2019 FDA granted Fast Track designation to NT-501 or Renexus, for the treatment of Macular Telangiectasia (MacTel) type 2 (MacTel).


THR-317 is a Placenta growth factor (PlGF) inhibitor. THR-317 is being evaluated in a Phase 2 study for the treatment of Idiopathic Macular Telangiectasia (MacTel) Type 1 (MacTel 1).
