Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to explore the efficacy of Norflo Oro in the treatment of relapsing autoimmune uveitis (RAU), measured as a long term reduction of the frequency and the severity of relapses, in patients with HLA-B27 associated uveitis, under conditions of routine medical practice. The reduction of the mean number of relapses per patient between the year before study treatment and the study period will also be assessed.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Uveitis Drug: Norflo Oro Drug: Placebo for Norflo Oro Early Phase 1

Detailed Description:
The secondary objective of this study will be: (i) evaluation of the improvement of side effects due to HLA-B27 associated uveitis such as intraocular pressure (IOP), cystoid macular edema, keratophaty and synechia (ii) evaluation of the improvement in uveitis-related symptoms: BCVA and symptoms measured by VAS, like ocular pain, photophobia, floaters and blurred vision; (iii) evaluation of cell damage and inflammation reduction in patients with HLA-B27 associated uveitis; (iv) evaluation of the patients' attitude towards the study treatment and also the evaluation of the safety profile of the study product.

Box of 30 packets of Norflo Oro. The study subject will take the entire content of one packet with meal twice per day. The study subject will be evaluated in a total of three visits.
Drug: Norflo Oro
Norflo Oro is highly bioavailable curcumin complexed into phytosomes
Other Name: Meriva

Placebo Comparator: Placebo for Norflo Oro
Box of 30 packets of Placebo. The study subject will take the entire content of one packet with meal twice per day. The study subject will be evaluated in a total of three visits.
Drug: Placebo for Norflo Oro

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The reduction of the mean number of relapses per patient between the year before treatment and the study period. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    The primary statistical hypothesis to be assessed in this study is whether there is a difference in cell damage and inflammation reduction between the treatment group and placebo group. The cell damage and inflammation reduction will be measured by Laser Flare Meter.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The improvement of side effects due to HLA-B27-associated uveitis [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    The improvement of side effects due to HLA-B27-associated uveitis, such as intraocular pressure between NORFLO® ORO treatment group and control group.
