Immunologic Markers for the Differential Diagnosis Between Uveitis-TBC and Uveitis-SARC (TBC-SARC)

Today there are no tests that allow to make a precise differential diagnosis between uveitis from presumed tuberculous origin and uveitis by sarcoidosis. Therefore, with this study, we aim...

This study will assess the safety and efficacy of AIN457 as adjunctive therapy for the treatment of intermediate uveitis, posterior uveitis, or panuveitis requiring systemic immunosuppress...

Efficacy and Safety of Filgotinib in Adults With Active Non-Infectious Uveitis

The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of filgotinib versus placebo for the treatment of the signs and symptoms of non-infectious uveitis in participants failing t...

Safety and Efficacy of AIN457 in Patients With Quiescent Non-infectious Uveitis

This study will assess the safety and efficacy of AIN457 as adjunctive therapy for the treatment of intermediate uveitis, posterior uveitis, or panuveitis requiring systemic immunosuppress...

The Safety and Efficacy of Basiliximab as Maintenance Therapy in Subjects With Stable, Noninfectious Uveitis

The objective of this trial is to assess if treatment with basiliximab allows subjects to taper off other immunosuppressive drug regimens without causing an increase in their uveitis.

Human Immunodeficiency Virus Infection Increases the Risk of Incident Uveitis Among People Living With HIV/AIDS.

Case reports indicated that HIV itself may be a direct cause of uveitis. However, the association of HIV with incident uveitis has not been extensively studied. This nationwide cohort study determined...

Drug-induced uveitis.

Nearly one-half of all uveitis cases seen at tertiary referral centers have no identifiable cause. Many systemic, paraocular, intraocular, topical medications, and even vaccines can induce intraocular...

What is new in paediatric uveitis?

The aim of this study was to summarize the demographics and causes of paediatric uveitis and to discuss the latest treatment options for noninfectious paediatric uveitis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Human histocompatibility (HLA) surface antigen encoded by the B locus on chromosome 6. It is strongly associated with acute anterior uveitis (UVEITIS, ANTERIOR); ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS; and REACTIVE ARTHRITIS.

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.

Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.

An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.

Inflammation of the pars plana, ciliary body, and adjacent structures.
