OBJECTIVE Two similarly designed, phase-3 studies (VEGF Trap-Eye: Investigation of Efficacy and Safety in Wet AMD [VIEW 1, VIEW 2]) of neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) compared monthly and every-2-month dosing of intravitreal aflibercept injection (VEGF Trap-Eye; Regeneron, Tarrytown, NY, and Bayer HealthCare, Berlin, Germany) with monthly(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of intravitreal ranibizumab in diabetic macular edema (DME) patients. DESIGN Two parallel, methodologically identical, phase III, multicenter, double-masked, sham injection-controlled, randomized studies. PARTICIPANTS Adults with vision loss from DME (best-corrected visual acuity [BCVA], 20/40-20/320 Snellen(More)
PURPOSE To report 36-month outcomes of RIDE (NCT00473382) and RISE (NCT00473330), trials of ranibizumab in diabetic macular edema (DME). DESIGN Phase III, randomized, multicenter, double-masked, 3-year trials, sham injection-controlled for 2 years. PARTICIPANTS Adults with DME (n=759), baseline best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) 20/40 to 20/320 Snellen(More)
CONTEXT Kidney disease in type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) is more heterogeneous than in type 1 DM. Reduced glomerular filtration rate (GFR) among individuals with type 2 DM may not always be due to classic diabetic glomerulosclerosis, which is associated with albuminuria and retinopathy. OBJECTIVE To determine the prevalence of chronic renal insufficiency(More)
Interleukin-17A (IL-17A) is elaborated by the T helper 17 (T(H)17) subset of T(H) cells and exhibits potent proinflammatory properties in animal models of autoimmunity, including collagen-induced arthritis, experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis, and experimental autoimmune uveitis. To determine whether IL-17A mediates human inflammatory diseases, we(More)
Optical coherence tomography studies in multiple sclerosis have primarily focused on evaluation of the retinal nerve fibre layer. The aetiology of retinal changes in multiple sclerosis is thought to be secondary to optic nerve demyelination. The objective of this study was to use optical coherence tomography to determine if a subset of patients with(More)
PURPOSE To determine efficacy and safety of intravitreal aflibercept in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) during a second year of variable dosing after a first-year fixed-dosing period. DESIGN Two randomized, double-masked, active-controlled, phase 3 trials. PARTICIPANTS Two thousand four hundred fifty-seven patients with(More)
PURPOSE A head-to-head comparison was performed between vascular endothelial growth factor blockade and laser for treatment of diabetic macular edema (DME). DESIGN Two similarly designed, double-masked, randomized, phase 3 trials, VISTA(DME) and VIVID(DME). PARTICIPANTS We included 872 patients (eyes) with type 1 or 2 diabetes mellitus who presented(More)
BACKGROUND Microcystic macular oedema (MMO) of the retinal inner nuclear layer (INL) has been identified in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) by use of optical coherence tomography (OCT). We aimed to determine whether MMO of the INL, and increased thickness of the INL are associated with disease activity or disability progression. METHODS This(More)
PURPOSE To estimate the incidence and describe the characteristics of immune recovery uveitis in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and cytomegalovirus retinitis treated with highly active antiretroviral therapy. METHODS The records of all patients with AIDS and cytomegalovirus retinitis from 1995 to 1998 seen at the AIDS(More)
