A Long-Term Monitoring Study of the IMT-002 Patients

2014-07-23 21:13:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This is a 5-year study of patients implanted with the Implantable Miniature Telescope (IMT by Dr. Isaac Lipshitz) under Protocol IMT-002. All patients implanted with the telescope prosthesis who enrolled in the IMT-002 trial were asked to participate in this study to monitor long-term safety. Patients will undergo examinations at six-month intervals up to a total of 5 years following implantation.

Description

Every 6 months, manifest refraction, visual acuity, intraocular pressure, slit lamp examination, endothelial cell density, device failures, complications and adverse events will be assessed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Genetically developed small pigs for use in biomedical research. There are several strains - Yucatan miniature, Sinclair miniature, and Minnesota miniature.

A retrogressive pathological change in the retina, focal or generalized, caused by genetic defects, inflammation, trauma, vascular disease, or aging. Degeneration affecting predominantly the macula lutea of the retina is MACULAR DEGENERATION. (Newell, Ophthalmology: Principles and Concepts, 7th ed, p304)

Postsynaptic potentials generated from a release of neurotransmitters from a presynaptic nerve terminal in the absence of an ACTION POTENTIAL. They may be m.e.p.p.s (miniature EXCITATORY POSTSYNAPTIC POTENTIALS) or m.i.p.p.s (miniature INHIBITORY POSTSYNAPTIC POTENTIALS).

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.
