The visual acuity remained stable in 15 percent of eyes and deteriorated in 14 percent of eyes.

"The six-month results presented at the AAO by Professor Marshall confirm our belief that there is a way to successfully treat diabetic macular edema safely and effectively without a significant visual trade-off," said Simon Luscombe, Ellex CEO. "Our next step is to expand clinical studies to investigate the therapeutic role of Ellex 2RT in other diseases that impact the retinal pigment epithelium, including early Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), drusen and central serous retinopathy."

Ellex confirmed that it has commenced trials in Australia to further validate the effectiveness of Ellex 2RT. This includes double blind randomized control studies for treating Diabetic Macula Edema and Diabetic Retinopathy in conjunction with the South Australian Institute of Ophthalmology and the Royal Adelaide Hospital.

Further trials are also planned for London.
