Further study details as provided by University of Aarhus:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The diameter of retinal arterioles [ Time Frame: 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The diameter of retinal arterioles will be assessed using the Dynamic Vessel Analyzer


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The severity of diabetic retinopathy [ Time Frame: 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Severity of diabetic retinopathy will be measured by optical coherence tomography (OCT) scanning and fundus photography


Estimated Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: November 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: November 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Latanoprost
Topical treatment with latanoprost
Drug: Latanoprost

Other Name: No other names
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Placebo arm
Drug: Latanoprost
Topical application
Other Name: No other names

Detailed Description:

The primary objective is to study if a sustained contraction of pathologically dilated retinal arterioles can be obtained. Retinal arteriolar diameter and the diameter response to increased blood pressure is studied using the Dynamic Vessel Analyzer (Imedos, Germany.

The secondary objective is to study whether the intervention can halt the development of diabetic retinopathy, which is assessed by optical coherence tomography (OCT) scanning and fundus photography.
