The purpose of the study is to determine whether pegaptanib sodium (Macugen) is safe and effective in slowing the leakage of fluid within the retina and thereby stabilizing or improving vi...
The purpose of this trial is to compare the ability of three different doses of pegaptanib sodium to safely and effectively minimize fluid leakage within the eye, thereby stabilizing or ...
The purpose of this study is to determine if Macugen™ reduces foveal thickness and improves vision in patients with wet AMD.
To evaluate the efficacy, based on the best-corrected visual acuity (using the ETDRS chart), of a 0.3 mg/eye pegaptanib sodium intravitreous injection given every 6 weeks for 54 weeks in p...
This research is being done to look at the effects of an experimental drug called pegaptanib (also called Macugen) for the treatment of swelling in the retina (the light sensitive tissue i...
The goal of this study was to examine the response of macular edema (ME) secondary to retinal vein occlusion (RVO) to predict macular edema course and re-injection intervals.
Causes of macular edema are multifactorial, but inflammation, vascular factors and mechanical traction are of major importance. Therapeutic options of macular edema depend on the underlying cause. Int...
The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between subclinical diabetic macular edema (SCME) and the development of central-involved macular edema (CIME) in patients with diabetes mellitus ...
Macular edema during infancy, a subclinical feature identified in premature infants by handheld spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), has been associated with poorer visual acuity and...
The purpose of this study is to compare cancellation and no-show rates in patients with diabetic macular edema (DME) and exudative macular degeneration (wet AMD).
Fluid accumulation in the outer layer of the MACULA LUTEA that results from intraocular or systemic insults. It may develop in a diffuse pattern where the macula appears thickened or it may acquire the characteristic petaloid appearance referred to as cystoid macular edema. Although macular edema may be associated with various underlying conditions, it is most commonly seen following intraocular surgery, venous occlusive disease, DIABETIC RETINOPATHY, and posterior segment inflammatory disease. (From Survey of Ophthalmology 2004; 49(5) 470-90)
A form of MACULAR DEGENERATION also known as dry macular degeneration marked by occurrence of a well-defined progressive lesion or atrophy in the central part of the RETINA called the MACULA LUTEA. It is distinguishable from WET MACULAR DEGENERATION in that the latter involves neovascular exudates.
Sodium or sodium compounds used in foods or as a food. The most frequently used compounds are sodium chloride or sodium glutamate.
Specialized ophthalmic technique used in the surgical repair and or treatment of disorders that include retinal tears or detachment; MACULAR HOLES; hereditary retinal disease; AIDS-related retinal infections; ocular tumors; MACULAR DEGENERATION; DIABETIC RETINOPATHY; and UVEITIS.
A voltage-gated sodium channel subtype that mediates the sodium ion PERMEABILITY of CARDIOMYOCYTES. Defects in the SCN5A gene, which codes for the alpha subunit of this sodium channel, are associated with a variety of CARDIAC DISEASES that result from loss of sodium channel function.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person's blood sugar level to become too high. The two main types of diabetes are: type 1 diabetes type 2 diabetes In the UK, diabetes affects approximately 2.9 million people. There are a...
