ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01726790
Verified November 2012 by Kasem Yospaiboon, Khon Kaen University. Recruitment status was: Recruiting
To evaluate corneal endothelium cell change after intravitreal Bevacizumab injection
Condition or disease
Corneal Endothelial Cell Loss
Intravitreal Bevacizumab has been used by retinal specialist in treatment many retinal diseases. Although it not approved by FDA for treatment. In many In vitro studies, its showed saftey in the eyes especially for corneal endothelium cells, that important cells to keep cornea clear. This study use Confoscan-Corneal confocal microsope to evaluate corneal endothelium before and after intravitreal Bevacizumab injection in routine retinal disease at 6 month follow up.
