TNF alpha Inhibitors have been very effective in treating rheumatologic diseases as well as uveitis. Adalimumab is the first member of a new class of TNF antibody compounds developed to co...
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...
A study comparing the safety and efficacy Adalimumab vs. Placebo in subjects with inactive uveitis.
TNF alpha inhibitors have revolutionized the care of vision-threatening uveitis. This study evaluated the efficacy of adalimumab (ADA) for the treatment of refractory noninfectious uveitis.
To assess the efficacy and safety of adalimumab on uveitis in patients with early onset, chronic, juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA)-associated or idiopathic anterior uveitis and an inadequate respon...
Uveitis encompasses a wide variety of sight-threatening diseases characterized by intraocular inflammation. It is often classified as infectious and non-infectious uveitis. Unlike infectious 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.
Uveitis is a visually-debilitating disorder that affects up to 30% of children with the most common forms of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). The disease mechanisms predisposing only a subgroup of...
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.
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.
Abnormally low intraocular pressure often related to chronic inflammation (uveitis).
