A Trial in Adults With Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus Evaluating the Effects of Fenofibrate Versus Placebo on Macular Thickness and Volume
The Fenofibrate And Microvascular Event Eye (FAME 1 EYE) Trial: A Randomised Trial in Adults With Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus Evaluating the Effects of Daily Oral Fenofibrate Compared With Placebo on Macular Thickness and Volume

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the potential benefits of Fenofibrate in 300 adults with Type 1 diabetes mellitus who are at high risk of eye damage.

Diabetes is the commonest cause of adult onset blindness. Vision loss, which is irreversible, is a most feared complication of diabetes. A blood fat lowering drug called fenofibrate, available in Australia, has been shown to reduce eye damage in people with Type 2 diabetes by 35-40%, and to prevent eye damage in Type 1 diabetic animal models. This study will evaluate the potential benefits of oral Fenofibrate 145mg once daily for 12 months in 300 adults with Type 1 diabetes mellitus who are at high risk of eye damage.
