Superficial and deep retinal foveal avascular zone OCTA findings of non-infectious anterior and posterior uveitis.

To compare the superficial (FAZ-S) and deep foveal avascular zones (FAZ-D) of non-infectious anterior and posterior uveitis to healthy controls, using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA).

Post-marketing surveillance study of the safety of dexamethasone intravitreal implant in patients with retinal vein occlusion or noninfectious posterior segment uveitis.

To evaluate the long-term safety of dexamethasone intravitreal implant (DEX) in patients treated for macular edema associated with retinal vein occlusion (RVO) or noninfectious posterior segment uveit...

Reclassifying Idiopathic Uveitis: Lessons from a Tertiary Uveitis Center.

Idiopathic uveitis is frequently the most common diagnosis in series from uveitis clinics. We sought to determine the percentage of patients initially diagnosed as idiopathic, non-infectious uveitis r...

Electroretinogram abnormalities in nonanterior childhood uveitis.

A major point of concern in uveitis is the development of irreversible retinal changes after inflammation. In this study, we assess how nonanterior childhood uveitis affects retinal function using ful...

COMBINED VITRECTOMY WITH INTRAVITREAL DEXAMETHASONE IMPLANT FOR REFRACTORY MACULAR EDEMA SECONDARY TO DIABETIC RETINOPATHY, RETINAL VEIN OCCLUSION, AND NONINFECTIOUS POSTERIOR UVEITIS.

To compare the efficacy of intraoperative intravitreal dexamethasone implant for macular edema secondary to diabetic retinopathy (DME), retinal vein occlusion (RVO), and noninfectious posterior uveiti...

Ozurdex® in Patients With Non-infectious Uveitis Affecting the Posterior Segment of the Eye

This observational study will evaluate the safety, efficacy, characteristics of patients, characteristics of physicians and quality of life in patients who are prescribed OZURDEX® as trea...

HUMIRA® Long-term Treatment in Patients With Non-infectious Intermediate-, Posterior-, or Pan-uveitis

This study evaluates the long- term safety and effectiveness of adalimumab in participants with non-infectious intermediate-, posterior-, or pan-uveitis in daily practice in Japan.

A Study of the Long-term Safety and Efficacy of Adalimumab in Subjects With Intermediate-, Posterior-, or Pan-uveitis

There is an unmet medical need in non-infectious intermediate-, posterior- and pan uveitis. These types of uveitis are at a higher risk for vision loss compared to anterior uveitis. Patien...

A Study of LX211 in Active Sight Threatening, Non-Infectious Intermediate-, Anterior and Intermediate-, Posterior-, or Pan-Uveitis

The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of LX211 as therapy in subjects with active non-infectious uveitis

A Study of LX211 in Clinically Quiescent Non-Infectious Intermediate, Anterior and Intermediate, Posterior or Pan-Uveitis

The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of LX211 as therapy in subjects with clinically quiescent non-infectious uveitis

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Inflammation of the choroid as well as the retina and vitreous body. Some form of visual disturbance is usually present. The most important characteristics of posterior uveitis are vitreous opacities, choroiditis, and chorioretinitis.

Specialized ophthalmic technique used in the surgical repair and or treatment of disorders that include retinal tears or detachment; MACULAR HOLES; hereditary retinal disease; AIDS-related retinal infections; ocular tumors; MACULAR DEGENERATION; DIABETIC RETINOPATHY; and UVEITIS.

Inflammation of the retinal vasculature with various causes including infectious disease; LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS, SYSTEMIC; MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS; BEHCET SYNDROME; and CHORIORETINITIS.

A group of disorders involving predominantly the posterior portion of the ocular fundus, due to degeneration in the sensory layer of the RETINA; RETINAL PIGMENT EPITHELIUM; BRUCH MEMBRANE; CHOROID; or a combination of these tissues.

A membrane on the vitreal surface of the retina resulting from the proliferation of one or more of three retinal elements: (1) fibrous astrocytes; (2) fibrocytes; and (3) retinal pigment epithelial cells. Localized epiretinal membranes may occur at the posterior pole of the eye without clinical signs or may cause marked loss of vision as a result of covering, distorting, or detaching the fovea centralis. Epiretinal membranes may cause vascular leakage and secondary retinal edema. In younger individuals some membranes appear to be developmental in origin and occur in otherwise normal eyes. The majority occur in association with retinal holes, ocular concussions, retinal inflammation, or after ocular surgery. (Newell, Ophthalmology: Principles and Concepts, 7th ed, p291)
