Oliver Niels Klefter, Glostrup University Hospital, Copenhagen
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01721811
First received: October 31, 2012

  Purpose

The aim of the study is to investigate how the retina adapts to different metabolic challenges, e.g. chronic systemic hypoxia, hyperglycemia, special training conditions or diets as well as transient changes in the content of oxygen and glucose in the blood.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Retinal vessel diameters during hyperoxia [ Time Frame: Before hyperoxia, after 15 minutes of hyperoxia, 30 minutes after ending hyperoxia ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Measurement of retinal vessel diameters before, during and after hyperoxic stimulation.

  • Retinal perfusion velocities during hyperoxia [ Time Frame: Before hyperoxia, after 15 minutes of hyperoxia, 30 minutes after ending hyperoxia ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Measurement of retinal perfusion velocities before, during and after hyperoxic stimulation.

  • Retinal oximetry during hyperoxia [ Time Frame: Before hyperoxia, after 15 minutes of hyperoxia, 30 minutes after ending hyperoxia ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Measurement of retinal oximetry status before, during and after hyperoxic stimulation.

  • Retinal vessel diameters during hyperglycemia [ Time Frame: Before glucose ingestion, every 30 minutes for 3 hours following oral glucose load ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Measurement of retinal vessel diameters before, during and after hyperglycemic stimulation.

  • Retinal perfusion during hyperglycemia [ Time Frame: Before glucose ingestion, every 30 minutes for 3 hours following oral glucose load ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Measurement of retinal perfusion velocities before, during and after hyperglycemic stimulation.
