In general, when equivalence or non-inferiority is investigated for two agents aimed at the same clinical indication, demonstrating the proof of no difference or noninferiority is a better level of evidence than demonstrating no proof of difference. Our purpose was to re-analyze the data on systemic safety published in these two meta-analyses by application of a non-inferiority design. According to our results, we extended this finding by demonstrating that bevacizumab is non-inferior in safety compared with ranibizumab.
