Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline of BCVA in ETDRS letter score [ Time Frame: Week 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in retinal thickness from baseline [ Time Frame: Week 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in quality of life questionnaire subscale 1 from Baseline [ Time Frame: Week 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in quality of life questionnaire subscale 2 from Baseline [ Time Frame: Week 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Proportion of subjects who gain threshold 1 change from baseline in visual acuity [ Time Frame: Week 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Proportion of subjects who gain threshold 2 change from baseline in visual acuity [ Time Frame: Week 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Proportion of subjects who gain a threshold change from baseline in the diabetic retinopathy severity score [ Time Frame: Week 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Adults ≥ 18 years with type 1 or 2 diabetes mellitus
  • Subjects with DME secondary to diabetes mellitus involving the center of the macula in the study eye
  • Decrease in vision determined to be primarily the result of DME in the study eye
  • BCVA ETDRS letter score of 73 to 24 (20/40 to 20/320) in the study eye

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Laser photocoagulation (panretinal or macular) in the study eye within 90 days of Day 1
  • More than 2 previous macular laser treatments in the study eye
  • Previous use of intraocular or periocular corticosteroids in the study eye within 120 days of Day 1
  • Previous treatment with antiangiogenic drugs in either eye (pegaptanib sodium, bevacizumab, ranibizumab etc.) within 90 days of Day 1
  • Active proliferative diabetic retinopathie (PDR) in the study eye, with the exception of inactive, regressed PDR
  • Uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, as defined by HbA1c > 12%
  • Only 1 functional eye even if that eye is otherwise eligible for the study
