The objective of this study is to compare and evaluate the efficacy of subcutaneous (40mg) adalimumab biweekly injections to intravitreal adalimumab (1.5 mg/ 0.03 mL) administration, given...
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of Adalimumab in uveitis.
Direct intravitreal administration of medication is the preferred method of treatment for uveitis and retinal vascular disorders. The eye is a self contained organ relatively isolated from...

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.
A humanized monoclonal antibody that binds specifically to TNF-ALPHA and blocks its interaction with endogenous TNF RECEPTORS to modulate INFLAMMATION. It is used in the treatment of RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS; CROHN'S DISEASE and ULCERATIVE COLITIS.
Inflammation of the pars plana, ciliary body, and adjacent structures.
