HORNBILL: A Study to Test Different Doses of BI 764524 in Patients Who Have Had Laser Treatment for a Type of Diabetic Eye Disease Called Diabetic Retinopathy With Diabetic Macular Ischemia

This is a study in people with a type of diabetic eye disease called diabetic retinopathy with diabetic macular ischemia. People who have had laser treatment for their diabetic retinopathy can participate in the study. The laser treatment is called panretinal photocoagulation. The purpose of the study is to find out how well different doses of a medicine called BI 764524 are tolerated. BI 764524 is injected into the eye. The study has 2 parts. In the first part, participants get different doses of BI 764524 only once. Participants are in the first part for about 5 months and visit the study site about 8 times. In the second part, participants are put into different groups by chance. Some participants get BI 764524 injections every 4 weeks. Other participants get sham injections every 4 weeks. A sham injection means that it is not a real injection and contains no medicine. Participants cannot tell whether they get the real injection or a sham injection. For the second part, participants are in the study for about 7 months. During this time, they visit the study site about 7 times. In this study, BI 764524 is given to humans for the first time. The doctors compare how well people tolerate the BI 764524 injections and the sham injections. The doctors also regularly check the general health of the participants.

A Study That Uses Data From Routine Eye Examinations of Patients Participating in Studies FIDELIO-DKD and FIGARO-DKD to Explore Whether Finerenone Can Delay the Progression of a Diabetes Complication That Affects the Eyes (Diabetic Retinopathy ,DR)

Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a diabetes complication caused by damage to the small blood vessels inside the retina at the back of the eye. Diabetic retinopathy may cause mild vision problems or eventually blindness. Diabetes is a condition that makes your blood sugar levels higher than they should be. In the early stages of diabetic retinopathy - called non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR)- increased blood sugar levels lead to damage to the tiny blood vessels of the retina. This damage results in small outpouchings of the vessel lumens leading to rupture. At the same time the blood vessels can leak and making the retina swell and can cause so called macula edema. In these early stages of DR current treatment to reduce the risk of this eye complication is focused on controlling blood sugar levels and blood pressure. Participants in this study have NPDR, Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) and Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), a condition in which the kidneys become damaged and do not work as they should. These participants are already taking part in one of the phase 3 studies (FIDELIO-DKD and FIGARO-DKD). They study the effect of Finerenone on delaying kidney disease progression and reducing the risk of events that may cause damage to the heart and blood vessels To learn more about the effect of Finerenone on diabetic retinopathy, data from routine eye examinations performed during the two phase 3 studies will be collected and analyzed. All male and female participants included in this study are at least 18 years.

National Eye Institute Biorepository for Retinal Diseases

Background: - To understand diseases of the retina and the eye, information is needed about people with and without such diseases. Researchers want to study these people and follow them over time. They also want to study body tissues and blood to understand the nature of eye disease. Studying genes, cells, and tissues may help them understand why some people get eye problems and others do not, or why some people respond to treatment while others do not. Researchers want to collect physical samples and personal data to develop a National Eye Institute database. Objectives: - To collect health information and blood and tissue samples from people with and without eye diseases, to be used in research studies. Eligibility: Individuals of any age with different types of eye disease. Healthy volunteers with no history of eye disease. Design: Participants may be recruited from National Eye Institute studies or may be referred from other sources. Participants will be screened with a physical exam and medical history. They will also have a full eye exam. Questions will be asked about family medical history, especially about eye disease. Blood samples will be collected. Other samples, such as saliva, tears, hair, stool, and urine, may be collected as needed. Adult participants may also provide a skin sample. Tissue or fluid from eye collected as part of eye care or treatment may also be added to the database. No treatment will be provided as part of this study.

Effect of Ranibizumab Versus Bevacizumab on the Macular Perfusion in Diabetic Macular Edema

The Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) group founded guidelines for treating patients with clinically significant diabetic macular edema (DME) with focal/grid macular laser photocoagulation. Since then, macular laser, and steroids, were the main therapies for the treatment of DME until anti-vascular endothelial growth factors (anti-VEGF) drugs were developed after a growing body of scientific evidence implicated VEGF in the pathophysiologic process of DME. Anti-VEGF drugs have been implicated in the treatment of DME. VEGF has been shown to play an important role in the occurrence of increased vascular permeability in DME. VEGF levels are significantly higher in patients with DME and extensive leakage than in patients with minimal leakage. Many studies such as Diabetic Retinopathy Clinical Research [DRCR] Network studies, RESTORE Study, RISE and RIDE Research Group, and The BOLT Study have supported the use of anti-VEGF agents in the treatment of DME with better visual outcomes using anti-VEGF injections alone or in combination with other treatments. Several ocular complications of intravitreal anti-VEGF injections have been reported including endophthalmitis, cataract, and retinal detachment. The different effects on macular perfusion between different anti-VEGFs have yet to be fully concluded with mixed conclusions that it increases or decreases or has no effect on perfusion of the macula in response to Anti-VEGF treatment. In many of these studies, however, patients with more ischemic retinas were not included. Retinal ischemia is a vital factor determining the diabetic retinopathy progression and prognosis. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) detects blood flow by analyzing signal decorrelation between two sequential OCT cross-sectional scans at the same location. As it detects the movements of red blood corpuscles within the vessels, compared to the stationary retinal surroundings, which will result in signal disparity and imaging The split-spectrum amplitude-decorrelation angiography (SSADA) algorithm improves the signal to noise ratio. OCTA is considered a reliable tool in the detection and quantification of macular ischemia in diabetics. In this study, the investigators aim to compare the effect of repeated intravitreal injections of ranibizumab and bevacizumab on the perfusion of different capillary layers in the macula of diabetic patients using OCTA.
