The long-term goal is to show that retinal transplantation can help to prevent blindness and to restore eyesight in patients with dry age related macular degeneration.
A prospective natural history study with systematic assessments and uniform follow-up to provide a high-quality dataset for assisting in the design of future clinical treatment trials involving patients with CEP290-related retinal degeneration caused by the common intron 26 mutation.
This project intends to transplant the clinical level human embryonic stem cells derived retinal pigment epitheliums into subretinal space to treat age-related macular degeneration(AMD). Through the statistical analysis EDTRS, BCVA, OCT, ERG, Fluorescein angiography, Ophthalmic AB ultrasound changes between before and after the treatment to assess the efficacy and safety of RPE transplants to treat AMD disease.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether metformin, an FDA-approved drug for the treatment of type II diabetes, is a safe and effective treatment to decrease the progression of geographic atrophy in non-diabetic patients with Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD).
This project intends to transplant the clinical grade human embryonic stem cells derived retinal pigment epitheliums into subretinal space of patients to treat dry age-related macular degeneration(dry-AMD).And we will assess the safety and efficacy of RPE transplants to treat dry AMD.
Phase I/II Study of the Safety and Preliminary Efficacy of Human Fetal Retinal Pigment Epithelial(fRPE) Cells Subretinal Transplantation in Age-Related Macular Degeneration(AMD) Patients
The purpose of this study was to determine the safety and therapeutic effect of sub-retinal transplantation of human embryo stem cell derived retinal pigment epitheliums (hESC-RPE) in patients with macular degeneration diseases, and explore new treatment modalities for macular degeneration diseases (Age-related macular degeneration and Stargardt's macular dystrophy).
Age-related macular degeneration, a leading cause of blindness, is caused by an abnormal growth of the vessels beneath the retina. Ranibizumab (Lucentis) is a new drug that inhibits the growth of new vessels and has recently been approved by FDA for treating this condition. This study is carried out to evaluate the changes in retinal function after an injection of ranibizumab.
Purpose: To assess retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) and retinal structural changes in eyes with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) treated with anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) during long-term follow-up and to evaluate morphological markers potentially influencing prognosis. Methods: 18 patients (18 eyes) with neovascular AMD were recruited subsequent to completion the Avastin Versus Lucentis in Age Related Macular Degeneration...
Hypothesis: external electrical stimulation of the retina with low level electrical currents improves visual acuity in subjects with age-related dry macular degeneration.
The overall goal of this project is to characterize the natural history of disease progression in patients with USH2A related retinal degeneration associated with congenital hearing loss (Usher syndrome type 2a) or non-syndromic retinitis pigmentosa (RP39).
This study is an open-label investigation of the safety and preliminary efficacy of the subretinal transplantation of human retinal pigment epithelial cells on Macular Degeneration.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate clinical outcomes of Photobiomodulation treatment on patients with dry Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD). Photobiomodulation is the use of non thermal, non laser light of specific wavelengths and energy directly on the eye to improve retinal function and delay AMD progression. This is a prospective 2 center phase 2 clinical pilot study with no placebo group.
This is a 24 week open label study to assess the efficacy of bi-weekly ranibizumab for patients with retinal fluid due to exudative macular degeneration refractory to monthly therapy.
Prospective, non-comparative, mono-center pilot study. Patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD), responding insufficiently to the maximal standard care with monthly intravitreal anti-VEGF injections are given adjuvant oral mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists for 4 months and observed for any changes in vision or retinal structure during the 4 months of adjuvant treatment, plus 2 additional months without adjuvant treatment.
The primary objective of this study is to determine the safety & efficacy of ranibizumab for the treatment of retinal angiomatous proliferation secondary to age related macular degeneration.
To evaluate the effectiveness of subthreshold laser treatment on retinal sensitivity in patients with reticular pseudodrusen and incipient Geographic Atrophy (GA) secondary to Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD). Secondary objective is to investigate changes in best-corrected visual acuity, atrophy progression and safety.
Inherited retinal degeneration (IRD) is a major cause of blindness and partial loss of vision cases in the UK and starts at an early age. The purpose of this observational study is to use the results of two questionnaires and a computerised test testing contrast sensitivity, to assess the impact of IRD on quality of life. This study will involve collecting data from patients with IRD, but also collecting data from normal controls.
Purpose: To examine the genotypes associated with the peripheral retinal phenotypic features in patients with age-related macular degeneration documented with wide-field imaging. Design: Clinic-based case series study in Croatia. Participants: 160 patients >50 years of age known to have early or advanced AMD and 150 subjects >50 years of age without known AMD (controls) Methods: Both groups of patients were examined with ophthalmoscopy and OCT to confirm their classification. ...
Age related macular degeneration (ARMD) is a major and irreversible cause of blindness among the elderly. The sub-retinal space, located between the retinal pigmentary epithelium (RPE) and the external segments of the retinal photoreceptors, plays a crucial role in this pathology. A recent epidemiologic study in the US, unpublished yet, has shown that patients treated with the L-DOPA, developed only later an ARMD when compared to the untreated patients. The L-Dopa is an ...
The main objective of the study is evaluation of the safety and tolerability of OpRegen - human embryonic stem cell-derived retinal pigment epithelial (RPE)cells. The study will also include initial exploration of the ability of transplanted OpRegen cells to engraft, survive, and moderate disease progression.
The Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-contact, non invasive method to examine the retina by providing cross-sectional scans through the retina. Measurements of the retinal thickness based on automatically set border lines created by threshold algorithm provide information concerning the amount of intraretinal fluid and activity of the lesion. In this study the reproducibility of retinal thickness measurements in patients suffering from age-related macular degeneration...
200 eyes with each subtype of neovascular age-related macular degeneration will be included in this study and 3 years after the initial intravitreal bevacizumab, best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) will be measured using Snellen charts at 6m. Central retinal thickness (CRT) will be measured using Stratus OCT and Cirrus SD-OCT (Zeiss). Data of treatment-naive eyes (group 1) were compared to the data of eyes that had undergone prior treatment with photodynamic therapy with vertep...
