Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The variation from baseline in anterior chamber cell score on Day 14 (difference from baseline
  • score) was compared between the test and control groups.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The variations from baseline in anterior chamber cell score on Days 3 and 7 were compared
  • between the test and control groups.
  • The numbers of patients with an anterior chamber cell score of 0 on Days 7 and 14 were
  • compared between the test and control groups.
  • The variations from baseline in anterior chamber flare score on Days 3, 7 and 14 were
  • The variations from baseline in total sign and symptom scores on Days 3, 7 and 14 were

Estimated Enrollment: 24
Study Start Date: April 2003
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2003
Detailed Description:

The objective is to assess efficacy endpoints in comparison with 0.1% BM ophthalmic solution, prior to investigation of the efficacy and safety of 0.05% DFBA ophthalmic emulsion in the treatment of postoperative intraocular inflammation.
