    Unfortunately Avastin a very similar VEGF inhibitor that has been studied for the same condition and is a fraction of the cost when compounded. And it has been used in studies and off label for this condition for some time. Remeber Newer isnt always better.

      But sometimes newer is better. My friend’s husband has age-related wet macular edema, not diabetes macular edema, and first was tried on Avastin. This did nothing, but he has had seven injections of Lucentis and they have worked very well for him. More choices are better because what works for one doesn’t always work for someone else. I have had four laser treatments on my eyes, and let me tell you, I’m glad to live in the days when those were available as opposed to when the only choice was blindness.

    Hey, I just wanted to say thanks for the amazing article! It seems like we really might not be that far off from developing a treatment for diabetes. I have been fascinated by the recent developments in diabetes clinical research. Apparently, there are even some medical researchers who have been studying fruit flies. What they are discovering could change the way that we are attempting to treat diabetes!
