Clinical Trials Related to Homatropine

Effect of Systemic Oxygen on Corneal Epithelial Wound Healing in Diabetic Patients Undergoing Pars Plana Vitrectomy [Completed]
1. To compare the corneal epithelial defect healing time between diabetic patients receiving and not receiving supplementary oxygen after vitrectomy. 2. To determine whether factors such as age, duration of diabetes, duration of surgery and level of glycemic control have any influence on corneal epithelial wound healing time in diabetic patients receiving and not receiving supplementary oxygen post-vitrectomy.

The Role of Umbilical Cord Serum Therapy on Improvement of Corneal Epithelial Defect Following Diabetic Vitrectomy [Active, not recruiting]
80 diabetic patients underwent vitrectomy and had no history of Eye herpes infection, Refractive surgery, Autoimmune disease, Immune deficiency will be randomized into two groups (double blind)to evaluate the role of umbilical cord serum therapy on improvement of corneal epithelial defect following diabetic vitrectomy. Both groups will take the conventional medication including Chloramphenicol, Betamethasone, Cycloplegic eye drops besides the case group will take umbilical cord serum eye drop in the eye operated. After surgery the corneal epithelial defect will be measured by slit lamp.

Intraoperative Dexamethasone Implant Improves Outcome of Cataract Surgery With Diabetic Macular Edema [Completed]
This study is undertaken to determine the effect of intravitreal long acting dexamethasone implant, (Ozurdex«) in improving outcome of cataract surgery in patients with diabetic macular edema. Diabetic Macular Edema and cataract constitute important causes of visual impairment in patients with diabetes. Cataract surgery in patients with diabetic retinopathy is associated with progression of retinopathy. Several modalities such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents, carbonic anhydrase inhibitors, corticosteroids, hyperbaric oxygen, laser photocoagulation and vitrectomy with internal limiting membrane peeling have been tried for managing inflammatory cystoid macular edema. Intravitreal Triamcinolone Acetonide (TA), a water insoluble steroid, has been shown to reduce the retinal thickness and improve the visual acuity. However, recurrence of macular edema in patients who receive intravitreal TA is a major concern as the patients need multiple repeat injections. In search for the ideal corticosteroid preparation, a Dexamethasone Posterior Segment Drug

Delivery System (Dexamethasone DDS - Ozurdex®, Allergan Inc, Irvine, California) was

recently developed. Promising results have been shown in certain patients with persistent diabetic macular edema receiving this intravitreal drug delivery system with improvement in visual acuity The present study introduces a novel concept of using intraoperative Ozurdex ® implant in patients with diabetes mellitus while undergoing cataract surgery to minimize the worsening of diabetic maculopathy.

Non-Inferiority Comparison of Migrane« Versus Parcel « For Treatment of Tensional Cephaleia [Suspended]
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the non-inferiority clinical efficacy of two different associations of drugs in the treatment of patients diagnosed with tensional-type headache in accordance with International Headache Society guidelines.
