We are experiencing 4 week turn-around time in review of submissions and resubmissions. We recommend commencing this process concurrently with your ethics submission and allowing at least 8 weeks for registration to be completed from date of first submission. We currently do not have the capacity to expedite reviews.

Note also there are delays to review of updates. We appreciate your patience.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

Key inclusion criteria
- At least 18 to 75 years of age inclusive, at the time of signing the informed consent.

- Diagnosis of diabetes mellitus (type 1 or type 2).

- Confirmation of DME with center involvement in at least one eye, including those with
focal or diffuse DME as determined by Investigator-determined fluorescein angiography.

- Retinal thickening (diabetic macular edema) involving the center of the fovea in the
study eye as defined by Investigator-determined SD-OCT central subfield thickness
greater than (>)340 microns for Heidelberg Spectralis or >320 for Zeiss Cirrus; if
both eyes are eligible, the eye with the greater OCT center subfield score is selected
as the study eye if all other criteria are met. SD-OCT assessments for individual
patients must be taken with the same machine throughout the duration of the study.

- Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS)-Best Corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA)
letter score of 80 letter or worse (Snellen equivalent: equivalent to 20/25) or worse
in the study eye. The non-study fellow eye should equivalent or better at Baseline,

- Safe to withhold treatment of the study eye with laser photocoagulation, intravitreal
steroid injection, or intravitreal vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) inhibitor
for the duration of the study.

- Body weight greater than equal to (>=) 50 kilograms (kg) and Body mass index (BMI)
within the range 18 to 40kg per square meter (inclusive) at screening.

- Male participants will be eligible to participate if they agree to the following first
dose of study treatment until the follow-up visit: Refrain from donating sperm, plus
either be abstinent from heterosexual or homosexual intercourse as their preferred and
usual lifestyle (abstinent on a long term and persistent basis) and agree to remain
abstinent or Must agree to use contraception/barrier as detailed below: 1. Agree to
use a male condom and female partner to use an additional highly effective
contraceptive method with a failure rate of less than (<)1 percent (%) per year, 2.
Should also be advised of the benefit for a female partner to use a highly effective
method of contraception as a condom may break or leak when having sexual intercourse
with a woman of childbearing potential who is not currently pregnant.

- A female participant is eligible to participate if she is not of childbearing

- Contraceptive use by men or women should be consistent with local regulations
regarding the methods of contraception for those participating in clinical studies.

- Participant is willing and able to return for all study visits and to comply with all
protocol requirements and procedures.

- Participants capable of giving signed informed consent which includes compliance with
the requirements and restrictions listed in the consent form.

Key exclusion criteria
- Additional eye disease in the study eye that in the opinion of the Investigator could
compromise assessment of SD-OCT, BCVA or imaging of the posterior pole by Fundus
Photography (FP), fluorescein angiography, or is likely to require intervention during
the study ( for example [e.g.], cataract, glaucoma with documented visual field loss,
ischemic optic neuropathy, retinitis pigmentosa).

- History of choroidal neovascularization in the study eye, or current choroidal
neovascularization in the fellow eye requiring treatment.

- Active Proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) in the study eye or untreated active
PDR in the fellow eye.

- Ischemic maculopathy on fluorescein angiography defined as a total area of capillary
loss greater that 2-disc areas (>5millimeter square [mm^2]) within the ETDRA macular
grid or a foveal avascular zone greatest linear diameter of >1000 microns.

- Intraocular surgery or laser photocoagulation in the study eye within 90 day of dosing
which might compromise assessment of SD-OCT, BCVA or imaging of the posterior pole by
FP, fluorescein angiography. Allowed in fellow eye.

- Use of intravitreal ranibizumab,or bevacizumab within 42 days (6 weeks), or
aflibercept within 56 days (8 weeks) of dosing in the study eye. Allowed in fellow

- Use of intraocular steroids in the study eye within 180 days of dosing. Allowed in
fellow eye.

- Use of or expected need for intravitreal or intraocular treatment in the study eye
during course of the study. Allowed in fellow eye.

- Use of any systemically administered anti-angiogenic agent (e.g., bevacizumab,
sunitinib, cetuximab, sorafenib, pazopanib), approved or investigational, within 6
months of dosing.

- Evidence of vitreomacular traction as determined by the Investigator.

- Uncontrolled intraocular pressure >22 millimeters of mercury in the study eye despite
treatment with glaucoma medication.

- Within 6 months prior to the Screening Visit, use of medications known to be toxic to
the retina, lens or optic nerve (e.g., desferoximine, chloroquine/hydrochloroquine,
chlorpromazine, phenothiazines, tamoxifen, interferons and ethambutol) or are
implicated in the development of macular edema (e.g. thiazolidinesdiones, fingolimod).

any evidence of suicidal ideation on any questionnaires e.g., Type 4 or 5 on the
Columbia Suicidality Severity Rating Scale (CSSRS) in the last 6 months (assessed at

- History or current evidence of any serious or clinically significant cardiac,
gastrointestinal, renal, endocrine, neurologic, hematologic, infectious or other
condition that is uncontrolled on permitted therapies or that would, in the opinion of
the Investigator or the Medical Monitor, make the participant unsuitable for inclusion
in this study.

- Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) >1.5 times upper limit of normal (ULN).

- Bilirubin >1.5 times ULN (isolated bilirubin >1.5 times ULN is acceptable if bilirubin
is fractionated and direct bilirubin <35%).

- Evidence of abnormal clinical laboratory finding prior to enrollment that, in the
opinion of the Investigator, makes the participant unsuitable for the study.

- Corrected (QTc) interval >450 milliseconds (msec) or QTc >480 msec in participants
with bundle branch block.

- Use of prescription or non-prescription drugs, including vitamins, herbal and dietary
supplements within 7 days (or 14 days if the drug is a potential enzyme inducer) or 5
half-lives (whichever is longer) prior to the first dose of study drug, unless in the
opinion of the Investigator and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Medical Monitor the medication
will not interfere with the study procedures or compromise participant safety.

- Use of a listed precluded medication, including strong inhibitors or inducers of
cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A or p-glycoprotein, within the restricted timeframe relative
to the first dose of the study treatment.

of 500 milliliter within 3 months from screening.

- Exposure to more than 4 new chemical entities within 12 months prior to the first
dosing day.

- Current enrollment, or past participation within the last 60 days, of any clinical
study involving an investigational study intervention, or any other type of medical
research, before signing of consent for this study.

months prior to first dose of study intervention.

- Cardiac troponin at screening > ULN for the assay.

- Sensitivity to any of the study interventions, or components thereof, or drug or other
allergy that, in the opinion of the Investigator or Medical Monitor, contraindicates
participation in the study.

- Regular substance abuse including drug and/or alcohol consumption within 6 months
prior to the study. Alcohol consumption is defined as: An average weekly intake of >
14 units. One unit is equivalent to 8 gram of alcohol: a half-pint (equivalent to 240
