Purpose: To evaluate the anatomical and functional efficacy of a single injection of dexamethasone intravitreal implant 0.7mg (Ozurdex, Allergan) for diabetic macular edema (DME).. Methods: We administered a single dose of dexamethasone intravitreal implant in 18 eyes of 18 consecutive patients with type 2 diabetes and cystoid macular edema. Of these 18 eyes, 10 eyes (Group 1) had DME refractory to previous intravitreal anti-VEGF treatment (plus focal laser in 3 eyes), and 8 eyes received dexamethasone implant as a first line therapy (Group 2). Follow up was scheduled 1 week after injection and than monthly for four months. We measured variations in foveal thickness (FT) and macular volume (MV) at SD-OCT, changes in ETDRS visual acuity, intraocular pressure and lens opacity (LOCS chart III) in phakic eyes. Patients were further divided in two sub-groups based on glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) ± 8.5%.. Results: Changes in FT and MV between preop and follow up visits were statistically similar in ...

Purpose : Elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) is a well-known possible adverse event associated with steroid treatments, such as dexamethasone intravitreal implant (DEX-I). We performed a prospective study to evaluate the safety of DEX-I (0.7 mg, Ozurdex®, Allergan) in the treatment for persistant diabetic macular edema (DME). Methods : We included a total of 32 eyes of 24 patients with persistant DME. Inclusion criteria: patients ≥18 years, with diagnosis of type 2 diabetes, DME resistant to previous treatments, BCVA (ETDRS) in the study eye between 34 and 79 letters, CRT (SD-OCT) ≥300 mm. Data were pooled for analysis in order to obtain median values and standard deviations. Exclusion criteria: uncontrolled diabetes (HbA1c ,10%), blood pressure ,160/100 mmHg, treatment with intravitreal anti-VEGF within 3 months of study entry, treatment with intravitreal triamcinolone within 6 months of study entry, current use or anticipated use of systemic steroids during the study, uncontrolled ...
Evidence-based recommendations on dexamethasone intravitreal implant (Ozurdex) for treating macular oedema secondary to retinal vein occlusion
A 62 year old man with cystoid macular edema secondary to a branch retinal vein occlusion received an uneventful dexamethasone intravitreal implant 3 months earlier. The macular edema of the patient had reduced following the implant. However, because there was a recurrence of edema within 3 months, reinjection of a dexamethasone intravitreal implant was planned. The injection procedure of the second implant was performed in the same manner and approximately at the same site (4 mm inferotemporal to limbus) as the first implant. While performing the procedure with the aid of a microscope, the surgeon noticed a small, thinner implant floating posterior to the new one in the vitreous cavity (Figure 3). This seemed to be a result of dislodgement of the partially biodegraded matrix of the first implant, which had become relatively fixed in the peripheral vitreous base near the injection site; the pressure from the new implant was posited as the cause of its dislodgement. The concern of the operating ...
Morphological and functional changes in recalcitrant diabetic macular oedema after intravitreal dexamethasone implant. Dan Calugaru, Mihai Calugaru Department of Ophthalmology, Univ of Medicine Cluj-Napoca/Romania Re: Morphological and functional changes in recalcitrant diabetic macular oedema after intravitreal dexamethasone implant. Iacono et al. Br J Ophthalmol 2016;http:/dx.doi.org/10.1136/bjophthalmol-2016-308726. Dear Editor We would like to address several challenges that have arisen from the study by Iacono et al (1), which can be specifically summarized below. 1. The study was uncontrolled and was carried out on a small study population. There was a selection bias attributable to the heterogeneous prior treatments administered to the patients, namely, panretinal photocoagulation (PRP), grid photocoagulation, focal laser photocoagulation, and anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) injections. Nothing was stated regarding the existence of a washout period between previous PRP, ...
Macular oedema is an accumulation of fluid within the central part of the retina (the macula). This can lead to loss of the normal architecture and function of the macula causing distortion and deterioration of central vision. Macular oedema results from a breakdown in the blood-retinal barrier, with fluid accumulating both interstitially and within the retinal glial cells (Müller cells). It can occur in patients with diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusions or ocular inflammation (uveitis). Macular oedema is diagnosed clinically and monitored with optical coherence tomography (Box 1, Figure 1 and Figure 2).. ...

Results There was no statistically significant difference of mean change of the logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution BCVA between IVB and IVD groups at monthly visits, up to 12 months (all p,0.05); however, there was a trend towards greater BCVA gain in the IVB group than in the IVD group at 6 months (p=0.053). Additionally, 52.6% in the IVB group and 50% in the IVD group gained two or more lines of Snellen visual acuity at 12 months (p=0.85). The mean CFT decreased by 160 µm for the IVB group and by 140.7 µm for the IVD group at 12 months. Both the IVB group and the IVD group achieved statistically similar improvement of CFT at monthly visits, up to 5 months (all p,0.05); however, the CFT began to deteriorate after 5 months in the IVD group, and at 6 months, improvement in the IVB group was significantly greater than that in the IVD group (p=0.007). After a second IVD injection at 6 months, the IVD group showed significant improvement of CFT, and there was no significant difference of ...

A novel biodegradable polymeric implant material (Polyepsiloncaprolacton-Butylacrylat, PCL-BA) was used for the reconstruction of a complete defect of the gastric wall in Sprague-Dawley-Rats (n = 42). ). In the control group the defect of the gastric wall was closed by primary wound closure (n = 21). In the baseline group (n = 21) the animals were kept under same conditions without any surgical procedure. This group was used for reference values. In another implantation group the gastric wall defect was closed by using Poly-L-Lactid (PLL). These experiments had to interrupt after 15 animals (n = 15) because of serious complications like perforation of the gastric wall, fistula and peritonitis. The implantation time was 7 days, 4 weeks and 6 months in all animals. In the PCL-BA and in the control group as well as in the baseline group no complications were detected. After explantation different parameters of the immune respone (C5b, C3b, CD2, CD14, CD68 and IgG) have been detected by ...

After consultation w/ FDA, design was modified to eliminate the Lupron arm and continued the study as an open-label non-randomized study.. Primary endpoint was testosterone suppression, as assessed by the percent of patients whose testosterone indicated chemical castration levels (,=50 ng/dL) through 52 weeks of treatment with an implant. ...
A group of 97 spring-calving beef cows were initially oestrus synchronised with controlled internal drug release (CIDR) intravaginal progesterone implants inserted for nine days and a prostaglandin injection on day 7. Approximately half the cows were given 10 μg buserelin when the implants were inserted, and they all received a single fixed-time artificial insemination (Al) 56 hours after the withdrawal of the implants. The overall pregnancy rate to the first synchronised Al was 55 per cent, the buserelin-treated cows having a pregnancy rate of 63 per cent compared with 47 per cent in the untreated cows (P,0.05). Sixteen days after the first synchronised Al all the cows were re-implanted with used CIDR implants which were removed five days later, and the cows received a second synchronised Al on days 23 to 24. Cows which received the second Al were implanted with new CIDR devices 16 days later and these were removed after five days and the non-pregnant cows received a third synchronised Al. The ...

This study was conducted to assess the impact of implanting intact beef males with protein anabolic agents at varying intervals throughout life. Ninety-six intact males were assigned to three implant treatments: 1) not implanted, 2) implanted at 9 wk of age, weaning and at 56-d intervals thereafter with a 36-mg zeranol implant or 3) estradiol implant at 9 wk of age and 68 d post-weaning. During the 118-d, post-weaning growing period, eight animals per treatment (one replication) were castrated. After a 114-d finishing period, cattle were slaughtered (average age of 13 to 14 mo). Feedlot performance, carcass and palatability data were obtained. Average daily gains and feed efficiency did not differ (P|.05) between zeranol and estradiol-implanted intact males. Regardless of implant treatment, steers had lighter carcass weights (P|.05) and higher (P|.01) quality grades than intact males. Implanting either intact males or steers with zeranol or estradiol resulted in higher (P|.05) numerical yield grades.
Macular Disease Foundation Australia welcomes the news that Ozurdex® (dexamethasone implant) will be listed on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) from 1 November 2016. The PBS listing allows Ozurdex to be used in people with diabetic macular oedema who have already had cataract surgery or are scheduled to have cataract surgery, and:
Of 138 patients who received an implant, one discontinued prior to Day 28 when the implant was expelled on Day 15. Three others did not have an efficacy measurement for the Day 28 visit. Otherwise serum testosterone was suppressed to below the castrate level (≤ 50 ng/dL) in all 134 evaluable patients (100%) on Day 28. All three patients with missing values at Day 28 were castrate by the time of their next visit (Day 56).. Once serum testosterone concentrations at or below castrate level (≤ 50 ng/dL) were achieved, a total of 4 patients (3%) demonstrated breakthrough during the study. In one patient, a serum testosterone of 63 ng/dL was reported at Week 44. In another patient, a serum testosterone of 3340 ng/dL was reported at Week 40. This aberrant value was possibly related to lab error. In two patients, serum testosterone rose above castrate level and the implant could neither be palpated nor visualized with ultrasound. In the first patient, serum testosterone was 669 ng/dL at Week 8 and ...

Connective tissue progenitors (CTP) can act as a pluripotent source of reparative cells during injury and therefore have great potential in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. However, the response of CTP to most growth factors and cytokines is unknown. Many envisioned applications of CTP, such as treating large defects in bone, involve in vivo implantation of CTP attached to a scaffold, a process that creates an acute inflammatory environment that may be hostile to CTP survival. This project entails the design of a two-component polymeric implant system to aid in the healing process of bony defects by influencing cell behaviors at the implant site through the covalent modification of the implant surface with selected ligands. We investigate cellular responses of CTP on a biomaterial surface covalently modified with epidermal growth factor (EGF) and find that surface-tethered EGF (tEGF) promotes both cell spreading and survival more strongly than saturating concentrations of soluble ...
Histrelin has a molecular formula of C66H86N18O12, a.a. sequence of Pyr-His-Trp-Ser-Tyr-D-His(Bzl)-Leu-Arg-Pro-NHEt and having a Mw of 1323.32 Dalton.
Scientists from the Oak Crest Institute of Science, in Pasadena, CA, report that they have developed a matchstick size implant, similar to a contraceptive implant, that successfully delivers a controlled, sustained release of ARV drugs for up to 40 days in dogs with no adverse side effects. "To our knowledge this is the first implant to be used for this purpose," says Dr. Marc Baum, president and founder of Oak Crest. Daily administration of oral or topical ARV drugs to HIV negative individuals in vulnerable populations is a promising strategy for HIV prevention. However, adherence to the dosing regimen has emerged as a critical factor in determining effective outcomes in clinical trials. "This novel device will revolutionize how we treat or prevent HIV/AIDS as it delivers powerful HIV-stopping drugs and eliminates one of the key obstacles in HIV/AIDS prevention -- adherence to proper dosing regimens," he adds. ...
