In April 2017, Lucentis received FDA approval for use in all patients with diabetic retinopathy. Previously, Lucentis could be used in patients with diabetic retinopathy, only they also had diabetic macular edema. The Rise and Ride Clinical Trials demonstrated that not only does Lucentis help to improve macular edema, it also can reverse the progression of retinopathy in up to 38% of patients. Now all patients with diabetic retinopathy can receive this beneficial treatment when appropriate. Brown DM, et al; RISE and RIDE Research Group. Ophthalmology. 2013;120:2013-2022.
