Research: Clinical Trials

Allergan Posurdex Steroid Implant Studies

This study tests the Posurdex steroid implant, which is given by injection in the office (minor procedure as opposed to surgery, as necessary for the Retisert implant) in patients with uveitis at the back of the eye. This is an international trial and we have started enrolling patients. All patients eligible for this study will receive the steroid implant, study-related eye exams and travel arrangements at no cost.

Characterize Keratic Precipitates (KPs) in Sarcoidosis-Associated Uveitis Using  Confocal Microscopy

This studies the use of Confocal Microscopy to determine if KPs are homogenous throughout the cornea in patients with Sarcoidosis- Associated Uveitis. The study will help determine if KPs are different in acute and chronic disease states, which may have a diagnostic significance in identifying the etiology of Uveitis.
