Intravitreal Conbercept After Vitrectomy

2018-02-13 18:09:10 | BioPortfolio


To evaluate the safety and efficacy of intravitreal conbercept after vitrectomy for the management of early-stage proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR).

Hypothesis: intravitreal conbercept therapy may promote functional and anatomic recovery from PDR. intravitreal conbercept therapy may be a useful and safe method for improving visual outcomes of surgery for early-stage PDR.


The drug conbercept (an anti-vascular endothelial growth factors) was recently made available for management of early prolific diabetic retinopathy, but its safety and efficacy still require study. Therefore, the aim is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of intravitreal conbercept after vitrectomy for the management of early proliferative diabetic retinopathy.The patients were randomly assigned (25 eyes each group) to either treatment group and control after they provided informed consent. The treatment group received intravitreal conbercept (10 mg/mL, 0.5 mg) immediately after surgery, while the control group did not.

At the time of study enrollment, physical examinations, best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), intraocular pressure and central retinal thickness will be measured and fundoscopy be performed.

The patients are going to be followed up for at least 6 months via BCVA measurement, fundoscopy, OCT, physical examinations and postoperative complications

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Aneurysm of the MICROVASCULATURE. Charcot–Bouchard aneurysms are aneurysms of the brain vasculature which is a common cause of CEREBRAL HEMORRHAGE. Retinal microaneurysm is an early diagnostic sign of DIABETIC RETINOPATHY.

Disease of the RETINA as a complication of DIABETES MELLITUS. It is characterized by the progressive microvascular complications, such as ANEURYSM, interretinal EDEMA, and intraocular PATHOLOGIC NEOVASCULARIZATION.

Vision considered to be inferior to normal vision as represented by accepted standards of acuity, field of vision, or motility. Low vision generally refers to visual disorders that are caused by diseases that cannot be corrected by refraction (e.g., MACULAR DEGENERATION; RETINITIS PIGMENTOSA; DIABETIC RETINOPATHY, etc.).
