  • A six-month, phase 3, multicenter, masked, randomized, sham-controlled trial (with six-month open-label extension) to assess the safety and efficacy of 700 ug Dexamethasone Posterior Segment Drug Delivery System (DEX PS DDS Applicator System) in the treatment of patients with macular edema following central retinal vein occlusion or branch retinal vein occlusion. ( 7/2006 - 12/2007 )

  • A 3-year, phase 3, multicenter, masked, randomized, sham-controlled trial to assess to safety and efficacy of 700ug and 350ug dexamethasone posterior segment drug delivery system (DEX PS DDS Applicator System) in the treatment of patients with diabetic macular edema ( 7/2006 - 7/2007 )
  • A phase III, multicenter, randomized, double-masked, sham injection-controlled study of the efficacy and safety of ranibizumab in subfoveal choroidal neovascularization (CNV) with or without classic CNV secondary to age-related macular degeneration. ( 1/2007 - Present )
  Funded Research Project (CI)
  • The standard care versus corticosteroid for retinal vein occlusion (SCORE) study: Two randomized trials to compare the efficacy and safety of intravitreal injection(s) of triamcinolone acetonide with standard care to treat macular edema: One for central retinal vein occlusion and one for branch retinal vein occlusion. ( 7/2006 - 12/2007 )
  • The Age-Related Eye Disease Study II (AREDS II): A Multi-center, Randomized Trial of Lutein, Zeaxanthin, and Long-Chain Omega-3 Fatty Acids (Docosahexaenoic acid [DHA] and Eicosapentaenoic acid [EPA]) in Age-Related Macular Degeneration. ( 1/2006 - 12/2007 )
