PURPOSE To examine the impact of intravitreal ranibizumab on patient-reported visual function using the 25-item National Eye Institute Visual Function Questionnaire (NEI VFQ-25) through 6 months in patients with macular edema (ME) secondary to branch or central retinal vein occlusion (RVO). DESIGN Two multicenter, double-masked trials, which enrolled(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare patient-reported visual function in those with neovascular age-related macular degeneration treated with ranibizumab or verteporfin photodynamic therapy (PDT). DESIGN Multicenter, double-masked, phase 3 trial (ANCHOR). Participants were randomized in a 1:1:1 ratio to receive 0.3 or 0.5 mg of intravitreal ranibizumab plus sham(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the effects of ranibizumab on patient-reported visual function using the National Eye Institute Visual Function Questionnaire 25 (NEI VFQ-25) in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD). DESIGN In MARINA, a randomized, double-masked clinical trial, 716 patients with AMD with recent disease progression and(More)
IMPORTANCE Diabetic macular edema (DME) is a leading cause of vision loss in persons with diabetes mellitus. Although there are national estimates for the prevalence of diabetic retinopathy and its risk factors among persons with diabetes, to our knowledge, no comparable estimates are available for DME specifically. OBJECTIVES To estimate the prevalence(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the effects of intravitreal ranibizumab (Lucentis; Genentech, Inc., South San Francisco, CA) treatment on patient-reported vision-related function, as assessed by 25-item National Eye Institute Visual Function Questionnaire (NEI VFQ-25) scores, in patients with visual impairment secondary to center-involved diabetic macular edema (DME).(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the effects of ranibizumab on the National Eye Institute Visual Function Questionnaire-25 (NEI VFQ-25) scores in neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) according to whether the study eye was the better- or worse-seeing eye at baseline. DESIGN Within 2 randomized, double-masked clinical trials (MARINA and ANCHOR), the NEI(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with severe and difficult-to-treat asthma represent a small percentage of asthma patients, yet they account for much of the morbidity, mortality, and cost of disease. The goal of The Epidemiology and Natural History of Asthma: Outcomes and Treatment Regimens (TENOR) study is to better understand the natural history of asthma in these(More)
BACKGROUND Limited data are available on levels of IgE in large cohorts of patients with severe or difficult-to-treat asthma. OBJECTIVE To examine IgE levels and disease in patients from The Epidemiology and Natural History of Asthma: Outcomes and Treatment Regimens (TENOR) study. METHODS From January 2001 to October 2001, 4,923 patients were screened(More)
PURPOSE To examine the responsiveness of the National Eye Institute Visual Function Questionnaire-25 (NEI VFQ-25) by using data from the MARINA and ANCHOR trials in neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and to establish the change in the NEI VFQ-25 associated with a 15-letter change in best corrected visual acuity (BCVA). METHODS In MARINA,(More)
We report three cases of biopsy-documented renal glomerular disease occurring in patients with cutaneous T-cell lymphomas. One patient had immunoglobulin A (IgA) nephropathy and another had membranous nephropathy. The remaining patient had an immune complex glomerulonephritis without immunofluorescent evidence of IgA, but with mesangial deposits and a(More)
