Lowering Events in Non-proliferative Retinopathy in Scotland


Brief description of study

LENS is a streamlined multicentre randomized placebo-controlled parallel-group trial investigating the effect of fenofibrate treatment on the progression of diabetic retinopathy/maculopathy

Detailed Study Description

LENS is a phase 4 randomised placebo-controlled clinical trial of fenofibrate in participants with diabetes and observable retinopathy or maculopathy. The trial aims to recruit approximately 1,060 participants and to treat them for a median duration of at least 4 years. The main aim of LENS is to investigate the effect of fenofibrate therapy on progression to clinically significant diabetic retinopathy/maculopathy. The trial will be conducted using a pragmatic streamlined trial design with the only planned face-to-face visits being an initial screening visit, followed by a randomisation visit eight weeks later. Contact with participants thereafter will be by means of regular telephone or computer questionnaire, and outcome and safety data will also be sought by means of linkage to NHS Scotland registries. Prior to randomization, eligible participants will enter an active run-in phase of 6 to 10 weeks.
