Fluocinolone acetonide implant shows promise for treatment of noninfectious uveitis

Dr. Danny A. Mammo presented data at Hawaiian Eye 2024 on the 0.18 mg fluocinolone acetonide implant for treating noninfectious uveitis in the posterior segment. The study showed that 80% of patients had one or more uveitis recurrences within a year prior to implantation, but this dropped to 10% at 24 months after implantation. The 24-month data for the CALM study indicates that the fluocinolone acetonide implant is effective for treating noninfectious uveitis in the posterior segment. Dr. Mammo reports consulting for Alimera Sciences. This study was presented at the Hawaiian Eye 2024 conference.
