Details and patient eligibility


This study objectives is to evaluate the efficacy of YD312 to improve visual acuity in patients with diabetic macular edema (DME) compared to placebo and determine optimal dose of phase 2b study.

Full description

These study results present the possibility that imatinib can be used as a new DME inhibiting agent by involving VEGF-independent ocular angiogenesis, not action points of existing agents, in effectively inhibiting excessive vascular angiogenesis observed in oxygen-induced retinopathy.

Subject who had systemic treatment of corticosteroid or anti-VEGF within 3 months before randomization. 3. Subject who administered vaccinium myrtillus extract or dobesilate calcium within 2 weeks before randomization 4. Subject who is suspected to require administration/treatment of drug/procedure that may affect the efficacy evaluation before the participation of clinical trial or during clinical trial (refer to '10.4 Combination Therapy and Contraindication'). 5. Subject who has the following illness or abnormal laboratory test values: 1. Subject who has a hypersensitivity to any excipients of the investigational product or similar class of drug and ingredient 2. Subject who has uncontrolled hypertension (SBP \> 160 mmHg or DBP \>100 mmHg) 3. Subject who has uncontrolled diabetes (HbA1c \> 10.0%) 4.

Platelet \< 125 × 109/L 7. Total bilirubin \> 1.5 × ULN 8. AST or ALT \> 2 × ULN 9. Clcr\* \< 40 mL/min \* Clcr (Cockcroft-Gault formula) = \[(140 - age) x weight(kg) (x 0.85 for females)\] / \[72 x serum creatinine (Scr) (mg/dL)\] 10. Severe heart failure (NYHA class III/IV) 11. Malignant tumor within 5 years before randomization 12. Subject who is known to be HIV positive, is active hepatitis B patient or carrier, or is hepatitis C patient 13. Ocular inflammatory diseases such as uveitis, conjunctivitis, and blepharitis in either eye. However, the participation of subject in this study is considered at the discretion of investigator. 14. Unstable angina, myocardial infarction, transient ischemic attack, cerebral infarction, coronary artery bypass surgery, or transluminal coronary angioplasty within 6 months before screening 6. Pregnant woman, lactating woman, or female or male subject of childbearing potential \*hormonal contraceptives, intrauterne contraceptive device, sterilization of spouse (e.g., vasectomy, tubal ligation), double-barrier method (e.g., combinational use of spermicides and condoms, diaphragm, contraceptive sponge, of FemCap) 7. Subject who took administraion/procedure of other investigational products or medical devices within longer period between 30 days before screening or over 5time half-life. 8. Subject, at the discretion of the investigator, who is unsuitable to participate in the study.
