The Role of Complement Factor H Polymorphism in the Regulation of Choroidal Vascular Tone in Young Healthy Subjects

Age related macular degeneration (AMD) is a multifactorial disease with a strong genetic component. Given that it is known that impaired regulation of choroidal vascular tone is present in patients with AMD, the current study seeks to investigate whether genetic polymorphisms in risk alleles for AMD are associated with altered ...

Phase N/A

Multicenter Prospective Cohort of Informal Caregivers in Burgundy and Franche-Comt

Medical progress and modification of lifestyles have prolonged life expectancy, despite the development of chronic diseases. The support and care are often provided by a network of informal caregivers composed of family, friends, and neighbors. They became essential to help maintening the elderly persons to live at home. It has ...

Phase N/A

The EUROSCA Natural History Study

The key goal of EUROSCA-NHS is to determine and compare the rate of disease progression in SCA1, SCA2, SCA3 and SCA6. To this end, a newly developed and validated ataxia scale (Scale for the Assessment and Rating of Ataxia, SARA) will be used. EUROSCA-NHS has a number of secondary aims ...

Phase N/A

Topical Proparacaine Eye Drops to Improve the Experience of Patients Undergoing Intravitreal Injections

The specific aims of this study are to compare patient experience with and without a proparacaine drop after povidone iodine. To ensure the extra drop does not interfere with antisepsis, conjunctival cultures will be obtained from patients undergoing intravitreal injection before and after the application of the extra eye drop. ...

Phase N/A

The Role of Inflammation in AMD and Related Disorders

This prospective, non-therapeutic study will compare the relative utility of multiple ocular imaging modalities in the detection of the cellular immune response in patients with AMD and related disorders.

Phase N/A

Prophylactic Ranibizumab for Exudative Age-related Macular Degeneration

This is a multicenter, prospectively randomized, masked and controlled, interventional investigator sponsored phase I/II study of subjects with high-risk nonexudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD) treated with intravitreal ranibizumab quarterly for prophylaxis of conversion to exudative age-related macular degeneration. The objective of this study is to investigate the safety and efficacy ...

Phase

An Open-label Trial of Intravenous Immune Globulin (IVIG)in Treating Spinocerebellar Ataxias

The purpose of this study is to learn how Intravenous Immune Globulin (IVIG) will affect Spinocerebellar Ataxia (SCA) symptoms and how it will affect motor and nervous system function in participants Subtypes of SCA to be examined will include SCA types 1, 2, 3, 6, 10 and 11.

Continuation of Previous Study to Gather More Data on Effect of Macugen on the Corneal Endothelium

Due to the lack of information generated in the pivotal phase III trials assessing potential effects of intravitreal injections of Macugen (pegaptanib sodium injection) on the corneal endothelium, the FDA requested clinical information from a 1-year (minimum) clinical study to support that there are no adverse effects on the corneal ...

Phase

Retinal Imaging by Adaptive Optics in Healthy Eyes and During Retinal and General Diseases

Most cases of severe visual loss in developed countries are due to retinal diseases affecting a specialized class of neurons, the photoreceptors. Currently available systems for retinal imaging in humans do not allow neuronal imaging at the cellular level, which is crucial to understand, diagnose and monitor retinal diseases. In ...

Phase N/A

Phase 2 Tolerability and Effects of ALK-001 on Stargardt Disease

This is a multicenter, randomized, double-masked, parallel group, placebo-controlled study evaluating the effects of ALK-001 administered daily by mouth in subjects with Stargardt disease (ABCA4-related). Stargardt disease is a rare genetic disorder that leads to damage to the retina and results in legal blindness. The onset of symptoms usually occurs ...
