Iontophoresis Delivery of Dexamethasone Phosphate for Non-infectious, Non-necrotizing Anterior Scleritis, Phase 1 Dose-varying Study

2014-08-27 03:16:15 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This is an initial clinical trial evaluating whether different doses of iontophoresis for delivery of dexamethasone phosphate can be tolerated by eyes of patients with non-infections, non-necrotizing scleritis. A secondary goal is to get preliminary information about whether the treatment is likely to be an effective treatment for scleritis. If the results are favorable, further trials evaluating the treatment may be pursued.
