Multimodal imaging approach useful in treatment of uveitis April 15, 2017By Steve LenierTo evaluate patients with uveitis, a tailored multimodal imaging approach can be very helpful both in the clinic and in clinical trials. With selective imaging, you can integrate and correlate the data from different images for a more conclusive diagnosis. FLACS offers enhanced surgical precision, patient safety, reliabilityConservation of phaco energy and minimal manipulation of the eye ensure precise outcomes with FLACS. Reducing or eliminating pressure on the eye is crucial for increasing patient comfort. Researchers find arthritis therapy ‘effective’ for noninfectious uveitisTocilizumab, a recombinant humanized, antihuman monoclonal antibody, can be effective in improving visual acuity and reducing vitreous haze in patients with noninfectious uveitis, according to a recent study. Adalimumab promising in treating JIA-associated uveitis, study findsJIA-associated uveitis is a challenging inflammatory condition in the pediatric population. Adalimumab was found to be effective and safe in reducing ocular imflammation within 2 months and well tolerated over 12 months in JIA-associated uveitis.
