CLINICAL TRIAL UPDATE

DRY AMD
Study: Sirolimus to Treat Geographic Atrophy Associated With Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Sponsor: National Eye Institute
Purpose: To examine the safety and effectiveness of sirolimus in preserving vision in patients with geographic atrophy (GA) associated with age-related macular degeneration (AMD)
Design: Treatment, Randomized, Open Label, Placebo Control, Single Group Assignment, Safety/Efficacy Study
Number of Patients: 15
Inclusion Criteria: Participant must have at least 1/2 disc area (approximately 1 mm2) of GA compatible with AMD present in each eye. GA is defined as one or more well-defined, usually more or less circular patches of partial or complete de-pigmentation of the RPE, typically with exposure of underlying choroidal blood vessels. Even if much of the RPE appears to be preserved and large choroidal vessels are not visible, a round patch of RPE partial de-pigmentation may still be classified as early GA. The GA in each eye must be able to be photographed in its entirety; participant must have at least one large drusen (greater than 125 micro meter) in each eye; participant must have a steady fixation in both eyes in the foveal or parafoveal area and media clear enough for good quality photographs. This will permit randomization; participant must have VA between 20/20 and 20/400 in each eye
Exclusion Critieria: Participant has evidence of ocular disease other than AMD in either eye that may confound the outcome of the study (eg, diabetic retinopathy with 10 or more hemorrhages or microaneurysms, uveitis, pseudovitelliform macular degeneration, moderate/severe myopia, etc.); Participant has any of the following a) a history of macular laser, b) a history of photodynamic therapy (PDT), c) received an intravitreal injection of any agent (not an anti-VEGF agent) within 4 months prior to study enrollment) or received topical treatment of any agent for advanced AMD within 1 month prior to enrollment. Participants currently taking or who have previously taken AREDS vitamin supplementation are not excluded; participant has had a vitrectomy; participant is expected to need ocular surgery during the course of the trial; participant has undergone lens removal in the last 3 months or YAG laser capsulotomy within the last month; participant is on chemotherapy; participant is on immunosuppressive medication; participant is on ocular or systemic medications known to be toxic to the lens, retina or optic nerve; participant with a history of malignancy that would compromise the 2-year study survival; participant with a history of ocular herpes simplex virus (HSV)

Study: Fluocinolone Acetonide Implant for Retinal Vein Occlusion (RVO)
Sponsor: Duke University; Bausch & Lomb
Status: Currently enrolling
Purpose: To determine whether a fluocinolone acetonide sustained drug delivery implant is effective in the treatment of retinal vein occlusion that has caused persistent macular edema and decreased visual acuity
Design: Treatment, Nonrandomized, Open-label, Uncontrolled, Single-group Assignment, Safety/Efficacy Study
Number of Patients: 30
Inclusion Criteria: A history of retinal vein occlusion that had caused macular edema, based on clinical evaluation and demonstrated on fundus photography, fluorescein angiography, and OCT; macular edema at least 1 disc area in size that involved the fovea; males and nonpregnant females at least 18 years of age; IOP controlled at <21 mm Hg with no more than 1 topical ocular antihypertensive agent; initially, patients with vein occlusion were not required to have previous therapy. However, the protocol was subsequently modified to require an intravitreal injection of triamcinolone acetonide >12 weeks prior to study entry, with an initial decrease in macular edema and improvement in VA and subsequent decline in VA accompanied by increased macular edema. This modification was added to avoid enrolling patients who might have had a long-lasting response to a single intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide injection
Exclusion Criteria: Patients are excluded if they have an allergy to fluocinolone acetonide or any component of the delivery system, a peripheral retinal detachment in the area of implantation, or media opacity precluding evaluation of study eye status; patients with disciform scars of the fovea or atrophic changes of the macula that in the investigator's opinion would preclude benefit from treatment are excluded from the study; female patients who were pregnant or lactating or not taking precautions to avoid pregnancy
