A Phase 2 Clinical Study to Investigate Effects of Darapladib in Subjects With Diabetic Macular Edema
A Phase 2, Multi-national, Multi-centre, Double Masked, Randomised, Placebo Controlled, Parallel-group Study to Investigate the Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics, Pharmacodynamics and Efficacy of Darapladib Administered for 3 Months to Adult Subjects With Diabetic Macular Edema With Centre Involvement

The purpose of this study is to characterize the systemic and ocular safety and tolerability, pharmacokinetics, exploratory efficacy and pharmacodynamics of 3 months of repeat administration of oral darapladib in diabetic macular edema patients with centre involvement.

This is a multi-national, multi-centre, randomised, double-masked, placebo-controlled, parallel-group study of repeat oral administration of 160 mg darapladib for 3 months in adult subjects with DME with centre involvement.

Eligible subjects will be randomised in a 2:1 ratio of active treatment to placebo, with the placebo group to allow a comparison of safety between treatment arms and to minimize the open label effect that can be observed with the visual acuity endpoint.

The primary aim of the study is to determine the effect of repeat doses of darapladib on the mean change from baseline of both best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and spectral domain OCT (SD-OCT) centre subfield. The study eye will be examined for changes over the life of the study. As this investigational treatment is systemic, the fellow eye may be examined in tandem to provide additional data.
