Development of Novel Clinical Endpoints in Intermediate AMD

The purpose of the MACUSTAR clinical study is to develop novel clinical endpoints for clinical trials with a regulatory and patient access intention in patients with intermediate age-related macular degeneration (iAMD). Additional objectives are to characterize the visual impairment in iAMD and its progression, as well as identify risk factors ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of Complement Factors and Genetic Polymorphisms of AMD Between Patients With Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) With and Without Retinal "Pseudo-drusen-like" Deposits: Case-control Study (PL-AMD)

The rationale of this research is to determine if patients with lupus and presenting retinal "pseudo-drusen-like" deposits have genetic and complement-related similarities with AMD patients. Based on the results obtained, this study could lead to future research that could better target the treatment of patients with lupus or patients with ...

Phase N/A

AMD Ryan Initiative Study (ARIS)

Objective Late age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness among elderly in the United States. At present, the current classification systems do not take into consideration advances in imaging technology, visual function biomarkers, as well as genotyping and phenotyping. Clinical sites in the United States and around ...

Time to Treatment Utilizing a Tele-Retinal Referral System for Wet Age Related Macular Degeneration and Diabetic Macular Edema: A Pilot Study

Within the province of Ontario, there are a limited number of retinal specialists for a large and geographically diverse population of 13.5 million people in 2012. Because the majority of these specialists are located in larger urban centers, many rural patients have difficulty travelling the significant distance from their communities ...

Phase N/A

Natural History of Geographic Atrophy Associated With Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Objective: Age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the leading cause of blindness in people over age 65 in the United States, is a heterogeneous clinical entity in which retinal degeneration occurs predominantly in the macula in the context of aging and leads to impairment of central visual acuity (VA). AMD occurs in ...

Phase N/A

Natural History of Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 7 (SCA7)

Objective Spinocerebellar Ataxia, type 7 (SCA7) is an autosomal dominant neurodegenerative disease characterized by progressive ataxia, retinal degeneration, and marked genetic anticipation. The objectives of this study are to 1) establish a cohort of participants with molecularly-confirmed SCA7 in anticipation of future clinical trials, 2) create a repository of plasma, ...

Phase N/A

Smartphone Flicker Fusion Test for Patients With Optic Disorders.

The smartphone app developed is a flicker fusion that presents the subject with a series of stimuli consisting of a flickering pattern of bars above or below a static rectangle. For each stimulus presentation, the user has to tap the region that is flickering. The duration of the app is ...

Phase N/A

Study of Dark Adaptation in Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Objective: This study is designed to investigate the use of dark adaptation as a functional endpoint for progression of eyes with no to intermediate age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Study Population: Two hundred forty (240) participants will be initially accrued; however, up to 280 participants who meet the eligibility criteria may ...

Phase N/A

The Effects of Regular Eye-training With a Mobile Device on Adult Patients With AMD

In the presented study a training-therapy in patients with dry AMD war evaluated. The main focus was on remote visibility and thus better handling of daily activities. Therapy with high-contrast administration is used for amblyopia in childhood. Furthermore, simulation therapy is used in hemianopsia in the adult age, in which ...

Phase N/A

Prevalence of Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD) in Parkinson's Patients and Assesment of the Role of L-DOPA

Age related macular degeneration (ARMD) is a major and irreversible cause of blindness among the elderly. The sub-retinal space, located between the retinal pigmentary epithelium (RPE) and the external segments of the retinal photoreceptors, plays a crucial role in this pathology. A recent epidemiologic study in the US, has shown ...
