A Randomized Study Comparing Ranibizumab to Sham in Patients With Macular Edema Secondary to CRVO
A Randomized Study Comparing the Safty Anf Efficacy of Ranibizumab (Lucentis®) to Sham in Patients With Macular Edema Secondary to Central Retinal Vein Occlusion (CRVO
A prospective multicenter study comparing patients with CRVO amd secondary macular edema treated with ranibizumab versus sham. Safety and efficacy will be evaluated. Patients will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to one of the two arms. 32 patients, 6 months follow up. There will be monthly visits with injection the first three months and subsequently new injection if present edema.

  3. Use of other investigational drugs
  4. Prior treatment in the study eye with verteporfin, external-beam radiation therapy, subfoveal laser photocoagulation, vitrectomy, or transpupillary thermotherapy.
  5. History of submacular surgery in the study eye, glaucoma filtration, corneal transplantation surgery
  6. Previous or current intravitreal or sub-Tenon drug delivery in the study eye
  7. Laserphotocoagulation (juxtafoveal or extrafoveal) in the study eye within one month preceding Baseline
  8. Extracapsular extraction of cataract with phacoemulcification within three months preceding Baseline, or a history of post-complications within the last 12 months preceding Baseline in the study eye (uveitis, cyclitis etc)
  9. History of uncontrolled glaucoma in the study eye (defined as intraocular pressure ≥ 25 mmHg despite treatment with anti-glaucoma medication)
  10. Previous violation of the posterior capsule in the study eye unless it occurred as a result of YAG laser posterior capsulotomy in assosiation with prior, posterior chamber lens implantation
  11. Afakia with absence of the posterior capsule in the study eye
  12. Active intraocular inflammation in the study eye
  13. Any active infection involving the ocular adnexa including infectious conjunctivitis, keratitis, scleritis, endophthalmitis, as well as ideopathic or autoimmune-associated uveitis in either eye
  14. Vitreous hemorrhage or history og rhegmatogenous retinal detachment or macular hole in the study eye
  15. Any current intraocular condition in the study eye (cataract or diabetic retinopathia) that in the opinion of the investigator, could either require medical or surgical intervention during the study period for the next 6 months
  16. Ocular condition that requires chronic concomitant therapy with systemic or topical ocular corticosteroids.
  17. Current treatment for active systemic infection.
  18. Current use or likely need for systemic medications known to be toxic to the lens, retina or optic nerve.
  19. History of other diseases, metabolic dysfunction, physical examination finding, or clinical laboratory finding giving reasonable suspicion of a disease or condition that contraindicates the use of an investigational drug or might affect interpretation of the results of the study or render the subject at high risk for treatment complications
