Primary Outcome Measures:
  • BCVA
  • Fluorescein Angiography
  • Optical Coherence Tomography

Estimated Enrollment: 45
Study Start Date: September 2005
Estimated Study Completion Date: May 2006
Detailed Description:

A non-randomized prospective clinical interventional study which includes 45 non previously treated patients with DME. The patients received a single intravitreal injection of 2.5 mg bevacizumab. Follow-up included clinical examination (best corrected visual acuity (BCVA, intraocular pressure (IOP), cataract grading, DME characteristics and systemic check-up) pre-injection, at first visit, at weeks 1 and 2 and months 1 and 3. OCT and fluorescein angiography was evaluated at months 1 and 3.
