Pilot Study for the Evaluation of Intravitreal Infliximab in the Treatment of Uveitic Macular Edema

2014-08-27 03:20:02 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine if intravitreal infliximab is a safe and effective treatment for macular edema secondary to uveitis.

Description

Participants with uveitic macular edema will be treated with one injection of intravitreal infliximab (2.0mg/0.05ml) and followed for three months. Outcomes that be assessed include best-corrected visual acuity, macular thickness as measured by optical coherence tomography, and electroretinogram responses.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Fluid accumulation in the outer layer of the MACULA LUTEA that results from intraocular or systemic insults. It may develop in a diffuse pattern where the macula appears thickened or it may acquire the characteristic petaloid appearance referred to as cystoid macular edema. Although macular edema may be associated with various underlying conditions, it is most commonly seen following intraocular surgery, venous occlusive disease, DIABETIC RETINOPATHY, and posterior segment inflammatory disease. (From Survey of Ophthalmology 2004; 49(5) 470-90)

A form of MACULAR DEGENERATION also known as dry macular degeneration marked by occurrence of a well-defined progressive lesion or atrophy in the central part of the RETINA called the MACULA LUTEA. It is distinguishable from WET MACULAR DEGENERATION in that the latter involves neovascular exudates.
