  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to measure systemic levels of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and other proteins (e.g. IGF-1) in the systemic circulation of infants with retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) following ocular treatment with either intravitreal injections of anti-VEGF agents or retinal laser photocoagulation. The primary aim is to determine if serum VEGF levels change after treatment.


Condition
Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP)

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case Control

Further study details as provided by University Hospital Freiburg:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Systemic VEGF levels following treatment [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    comparing VEGF levels in serum of ROP infants treated with intravitreal anti-VEGF agents vs. retinal laser photocoagulation over 16 weeks post treatment


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Systemic levels of other growth factors (e.g. IGF-1) [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    comparing systemic levels of other (non-VEGF) factors in serum of ROP infants treated with intravitreal anti-VEGF agents vs. retinal laser photocoagulation
