  Purpose

This study is to see whether treating diabetic retinal swelling with ranibizumab injections into the eye monthly is better than treating diabetic retinal swelling with ranibizumab injections into the eye less frequently.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean change in Early Treatment for Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) eye chart vision. [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The ETDRS eye chart will be used to check the vision at each visit throuh month 12. The improvement or worsening in vision as measured on the eye chart over that time will be recorded.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean number of injections. [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The average number of intravitreal ranibizumab injections in each arm of the study will be recorded.

  • Mean change in spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) central foveal thickness (CFT). [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Evaluate the average change in the swelling from diabetic macular edema measured with the optical coherence tomography machine.

  • Percentage of patients with best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) Snellen-equivalent of 20/40 or better. [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The percentage of patients with 20/40 vision as assessed by the number of letters read correctly on the ETDRS eye chart at a starting test distance of 20 feet.

  • Percentage of patients anatomically "dry." [ Time Frame: 3, 6, and 12 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Spectral domain OCT will be used to check the patients' central foveal thickness at each visit and the percentage with "dry" maculas at months 3,6, and 12 based on spectral domain OCT measurements per the study protocol will be recorded.

  • Number of participants with adverse events as a measure of safety and tolerability. [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    To evaluate the safety and tolerability of ranibizumab for diabetic macular edema by recording local and systemic adverse events.


Estimated Enrollment: 20
Study Start Date: November 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Monthly Ranibizumab
Patients randomized to the Monthly Ranibizumab arm of the study will be administered intravitreal injections each month for their diabetic macular edema for the duration of the study.
Drug: Ranibizumab
Pars plana injection of ranibizumab 0.5mg into the vitreous cavity.
Other Name: Lucentis
Experimental: Treat and Extend Ranibizumab
Patients randomized to this arm of the study will receive intravitreal injections of ranibizumab until their maculae are anatomically "dry," at which point the evaluation and injection interval will be extended.
Drug: Ranibizumab
Pars plana injection of ranibizumab 0.5mg into the vitreous cavity.
Other Name: Lucentis

Detailed Description:

This is a prospective randomized study comparing two groups of patients with diabetic macular edema. One group will receive injections of ranibizumab monthly and the other group will have the option to receive injections of ranibizumab less frequently. That is eligible to receive the injections less frequently will have fewer injections given if the patients in that group are doing well.
