Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Responders for Visual Acuity Using Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) [ Time Frame: Baseline, 54 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Best-corrected visual acuity assessed using retroilluminated modified Ferris-Bailey ETDRS charts. When possible to measure visual acuity @ 2.0 m (≥20 letters), visual acuity score for that eye recorded as number of letters correct plus 15; otherwise, score was number of letters read correctly @ 1.0 m plus number, if any, read @ 2.0 m. If no letter was read correctly either at 2.0 or 1.0 m, then visual acuity score was recorded as 0. Responders defined as subjects having lost from baseline less than 15 letters of the best-corrected visual acuity; includes subjects with visual acuity gain.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Visual Acuity [ Time Frame: Baseline, 6 weeks, 12 weeks, 54 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Best-corrected visual acuity assessed using retroilluminated modified Ferris-Bailey ETDRS charts. When possible to measure visual acuity @ 2.0 m (≥20 letters), visual acuity score for that eye recorded as number of letters correct plus 15; otherwise, score was number of letters read correctly @ 1.0 m plus number, if any, read @ 2.0 m. If no letter was read correctly either at 2.0 or 1.0 m, then visual acuity score was recorded as 0. Change: mean score at observation minus mean score at baseline.

  • Number of Subjects Gaining Vision [ Time Frame: 54 weeks or at early termination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Subjects gaining vision: gain from baseline of more than 15 letters of visual acuity. Best-corrected visual acuity assessed using retroilluminated modified Ferris-Bailey ETDRS charts. When possible to measure visual acuity @ 2.0 m (≥20 letters), visual acuity score for that eye recorded as number of letters correct plus 15; otherwise, score was number of letters read correctly @ 1.0 m plus number, if any, read @ 2.0 m. If no letter was read correctly either at 2.0 or 1.0 m, then visual acuity score was recorded as 0.

  • Number of Subjects Maintaining Vision [ Time Frame: 54 weeks or at early termination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Subjects maintaining vision: gain from baseline of more than 0 letters of visual acuity. Best-corrected visual acuity assessed using retroilluminated modified Ferris-Bailey ETDRS charts. When possible to measure visual acuity @ 2.0 m (≥20 letters), visual acuity score for that eye recorded as number of letters correct plus 15; otherwise, score was number of letters read correctly @ 1.0 m plus number, if any, read @ 2.0 m. If no letter was read correctly either at 2.0 or 1.0 m, then visual acuity score was recorded as 0.

  • Number of Subjects With Severe Visual Loss [ Time Frame: 54 weeks or at early termination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Subjects with severe visual loss: loss from baseline of >= 30 letters of visual acuity. Best-corrected visual acuity assessed using retroilluminated modified Ferris-Bailey ETDRS charts. When possible to measure visual acuity @ 2.0 m (≥20 letters), visual acuity score for that eye recorded as number of letters correct plus 15; otherwise, score was number of letters read correctly @ 1.0 m plus number, if any, read @ 2.0 m. If no letter was read correctly either at 2.0 or 1.0 m, then visual acuity score was recorded as 0.

  • Number of Subjects With a Distance Visual Acuity of > 20/200 at Baseline and Progressing to (<= 20/200) [ Time Frame: 54 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Subjects with improving scores are those with > 20/200 at Baseline and progressing to =< 20/200 at Week 54.

    Subjects with no change are those with > 20/200 at Baseline and remaining at > 20/200 at Week 54.


  • Change in Vision-related Functioning and Quality of Life Using the National Eye Institute Visual Functioning Questionnaire-25 (NEI-VFQ 25). [ Time Frame: Baseline, 54 weeks or at early termination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Patient reported vision-related functioning and quality of life as measured using the 25 item NEI-VFQ 25. Change = Mean score at 54 weeks - mean score at baseline. A positive change represents an increase in function/health from Baseline. Items grouped as the following - Composite: mean score items 1-25; General Health: item 1; General Vision: item 2; Ocular Pain:4,19; Near Vision:5,6,7; Distance Vision:8,9,14; Social Functioning:11,13; Mental Health Activities:3,21,22,25; Role Difficulties:17,18; Dependency:20,23,24; Driving:15c,16, 16a; Color Vision: 12; Peripheral Vision: 10.
