  Purpose

This is a multi-center, randomized, double-masked, controlled study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of fluocinolone acetonide (FA) intravitreal implants for the management of subjects with non-infectious uveitis affecting the posterior segment of the eye. An additional objective is to compare the safety and efficacy of two doses of fluocinolone acetonide.

Noninfectious Posterior Uveitis
Drug: fluocinolone acetonide intravitreal implant
Drug: Fluocinolone acetonide 2.1mg
Phase 2
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Masked, Controlled Study to Evaluate the Safety & Efficacy of Intravitreal Fluocinolone Acetonide (0.59 or 2.1 mg) Implant in Subjects With Non-Infectious Uveitis Affecting the Posterior Segment of the Eye

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Recurrence of uveitis before and after implantation. [ Time Frame: 34 weeks pre-implantation; 34 weeks, 1 year, 2 years and 3 years post-implantation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Post-implantation rate of uveitis recurrence, within patient comparison of implanted vs fellow eyes. [ Time Frame: 34 weeks, 1 year, 2 years and 3 years post-implantation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Post-implantation time to recurrence of uveitis within patient comparison of implanted vs fellow eyes. [ Time Frame: 34 weeks, 1 year, 2 years and 3 years post-implantation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The need for adjunctive uveitis treatment for the study eye, within patient comparison (pre- versus post-implantation) [ Time Frame: 34 weeks, 1 year, 2 years and 3 years post-implantation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Reduction in the area of cystoid macular edema (CME) within patient comparison of responding eyes (implant vs fellow eyes) [ Time Frame: 34 weeks, 1 year, 2 years and 3 years post-implantation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Results of QOL surveys pre- versus post-implantation [ Time Frame: 34 weeks, 1 year, 2 years and 3 years post-implantation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Visual acuity, within patient comparison of responding eyes (implant vs fellow eyes) [ Time Frame: 34 weeks, 1 year, 2 years and 3 years post-implantation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to recurrence, between treatment group comparison [ Time Frame: 34 weeks, 1 year, 2 years and 3 years post-implantation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Post implantation uveitis rate, between treatment group comparison [ Time Frame: 34 weeks, 1 year, 2 years and 3 years post-implantation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
