Study to Evaluate Grid Laser Treatment vs. Avastin Injections to Treat Diabetic Macular Edema

January 28, 2013

There is no agreement concerning the best treatment for diabetic macular edema (DME). Two common options are grid laser treatment and Avastin injections.

An upcoming study in Israel currently recruiting participants will evaluate the treatment of DME using grid laser vs. intravitreal Avastin injections, as well as a combination of both therapies. The primary outcome to be measured is retinal thickness following treatments.
