Proportion of Clinical Improvement & Type 1 IFN Score Changes in Idiopathic Uveitis Patients With IGRA Positive

2019-09-18 03:27:41 | BioPortfolio


The aim of this study is to determine the proportion of clinical improvement, the score changing of type 1 interferon selected gene expression, and analysis of transcriptomics profiling in patients with idiopathic uveitis positive IGRA before and after receiving Anti-Tuberculosis Therapy (ATT).

Hopefully, by conducting this research, we are able to provide the valid data that demonstrate the advantages/disadvantages usage of Anti-Tuberculosis Therapy in patients with idiopathic uveitis IGRA positive that correlate with type I IFN. This research is a part of our efforts in discovering bio-marker candidates of idiopathic uveitis IGRA positive clinical patients who will benefit from the ATT administration.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

ETHINYL ESTRADIOL and NORGESTREL given in fixed proportions. It has proved to be an effective contraceptive (CONTRACEPTIVES, ORAL, COMBINED).

Fixed drug combinations administered orally for contraceptive purposes.

Tuberculosis of the mouth, tongue, and salivary glands.

The use of multiple drugs administered to the same patient, most commonly seen in elderly patients. It includes also the administration of excessive medication. Since in the United States most drugs are dispensed as single-agent formulations, polypharmacy, though using many drugs administered to the same patient, must be differentiated from DRUG COMBINATIONS, single preparations containing two or more drugs as a fixed dose, and from DRUG THERAPY, COMBINATION, two or more drugs administered separately for a combined effect. (From Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

Examination of the mouth and teeth toward the identification and diagnosis of intraoral disease or manifestation of non-oral conditions.
