Primary Outcome Measures:
  • CSME needing treatment either photocoagulation or ITV. [ Time Frame: Months 0, 6, 12 and 24. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Best corrected visual acuity. [ Time Frame: Months 0, 6, 12 and 24. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Vision loss of at least 2 lines documented in ETDRS charts [ Time Frame: Months 0, 6, 12 and 24. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Central retinal thickness [ Time Frame: Months 0, 6, 12 and 24. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Microaneurysm(MA) activity (number of MA, MA formation and MA disappearance rates and MA turnover) [ Time Frame: Months 0, 6, 12 and 24. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
