Study Design

  • The method used to assign participants to an arm of a clinical trial, for example Randomized (assigned by chance) versus Non-randomized.
    ?

    Allocation

    Randomized

  • A target outcome that the study’s protocol aims to evaluate - things like: the occurrence of a disease, a symptom, sign, or lab abnormality, among others.
    ?

    Endpoint Classification

    Safety/Efficacy Study

  • The general design that shows how the medical interventions will be assigned to the participants, e.g., whether all patients will receive the same drug, or if different groups receive two or more different treatments in a particular order.
    ?

    Intervention Model

    Parallel Assignment

  • The general design that describes the strategy for identifying and following up with participants during observational studies.
    ?

    Masking

    Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)

  • This is the single main reason for carrying out the clinical trial. Reasons can include: treatment, prevention, diagnostic advances, supportive care, screening, or health services research, among others.
    ?

    Purpose

    Treatment

    • Subject is diagnosed with non-infectious intermediate-, posterior-, or pan-uveitis.
    • Subject that for >/= 28 days prior to the Baseline visit has inactive disease and is taking >/= 10 mg of oral prednisone to maintain this inactive state and fulfillment of all 3 of the following criteria based on the Investigator's clinical judgment at the Screening and Baseline visits for both eyes:
      • Subject without active, inflammatory chorioretinal and/or inflammatory retinal vascular lesions.
      • Subject with Anterior Chamber Cell grade </= 0.5+ according to Standardization of Uveitis Nomenclature (SUN) criteria.
      • Subject with Vitreous Haze grade </= 0.5+ according to National Eye Institute (NEI)/SUN criteria.
    • Subject is on oral prednisone 10 to 35 mg/day (or oral corticosteroid equivalent) at Baseline and the dose has not been increased in the past 28 days or decreased in the past 14 days.
    • Subject must have a documented history of experiencing at least one disease flare within 18 months of the Screening visit. This flare has to occur during or up to a maximum of 28 days after tapering off the oral corticosteroid therapy.
    • Subjects who do not have previous, active or latent TB. Only one TB test is required to allow the subject in the study. Subjects with either negative PPD (< 5mm of induration) or negative QuantiFERON®-TB Gold test (or IGRA equivalent) are eligible. Subjects with a repeat indeterminate QuantiFERON®-TB Gold test (or IGRA equivalent) result are not eligible. Note, that only one TB screening test is allowed and required. A repeat QuantiFERON®-TB Gold test (or IGRA equivalent) is not permitted if the PPD skin test is positive. The TB screening tests are diagnostic tests. In the event of a negative TB screening test, the results are to be interpreted in the context of the patient's epidemiology, history, exam findings, etc. and it is the responsibility of the investigator to determine if a patient has previous, active or latent tuberculosis or not. Under no circumstances can a patient with a positive PPD result or positive QuantiFERON®-TB Gold test (or IGRA equivalent) enter the study.
    • Subject with isolated anterior uveitis.
    • Subject with confirmed or suspected infectious uveitis, including but not limited to infectious uveitis due to TB, cytomegalovirus (CMV), Lyme disease, toxoplasmosis, Human T-Lymphotropic Virus Type 1 (HTLV-1) infection, Whipple's disease, herpes zoster virus(HZV) and herpes simplex virus(HSV).
    • Subject with serpiginous choroidopathy.
    • Subject with corneal or lens opacity that precludes visualization of the fundus or that likely requires cataract surgery during the duration of the trial.
    • Subject with intraocular pressure of >/= 25 mmHg and on >/= 2 glaucoma medications or evidence of glaucomatous optic nerve injury.
    • Subject with best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) less than 20 letters (ETDRS [Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study]) in at least one eye at the Baseline visit.
    • Subject with intermediate uveitis or panuveitis that has signs of intermediate uveitis (e.g. presence or history of snowbanking or snowballs) and symptoms and/or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) findings suggestive of a demyelinating disease such as multiple sclerosis. All subjects with intermediate uveitis or panuveitis that have signs of intermediate uveitis (e.g. presence or history of snowbanking or snowballs) must have a brain MRI within 90 days prior to the Baseline visit.
    • Subject has previous exposure to anti-TNF therapy or any biologic therapy (except intravitreal anti- Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapy) with a potential therapeutic impact on non-infectious uveitis.
    • Subject on concomitant immunosuppressive therapy other than methotrexate, cyclosporine, mycophenolate mofetil or an equivalent drug to mycophenolate mofetil (e.g., mycophenolic acid), azathioprine or tacrolimus within 28 days of Baseline or has discontinued an immunosuppressive therapy including methotrexate, cyclosporine, mycophenolate mofetil or an equivalent drug to mycophenolate mofetil (e.g., mycophenolic acid), azathioprine or tacrolimus within 28 days of Baseline.
    • If entering the study on one concomitant immunosuppressive therapy, dose has not been stable for at least 28 days prior to the Baseline visit or is not within the following allowable doses at the Baseline visit:
      • Methotrexate (MTX) </= 25 mg per week
      • Cyclosporine </= 4 mg/kg per day
      • Mycophenolate mofetil
        </= 2 grams per day or an equivalent drug to mycophenolate mofetil (e.g. mycophenolic acid) at an equivalent dose approved by the Medical Monitor
      • Azathioprine </= 175 mg per day
      • Tacrolimus (oral formulation) </= 8 mg per day
    • Subject has Retisert® (glucocorticosteroids implant) within 3 years prior to the Baseline visit or has had complications related to the device. Subject has had Retisert® (glucocorticosteroid implant) removed within 90 days prior to the Baseline visit or has had complications related to removal of the device.
    • Subject has received intraocular or periocular corticosteroids within 90 days prior to the Baseline visit.
    • Subject with proliferative or severe non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy or clinically significant macular edema due to diabetic retinopathy.
    • Subject with neovascular/wet age-related macular degeneration.
    • Subject with abnormality of vitreo-retinal interface (i.e., vitreomacular traction, epiretinal membranes, etc.) with the potential for macular structural damage independent of the inflammatory process.
    • Subject with cystoid macular edema unless the retinal changes are persistent, residual and stable as defined by the Standardization of Uveitis Nomenclature (SUN) criteria (persistent is > 3 months duration).
    • Subject has received Ozurdex® (dexamethasone implant) within 6 months prior to the Baseline visit.
    • Subject has received intravitreal methotrexate within 90 days prior to the Baseline visit.
    • Subject has received intravitreal anti-VEGF therapy:
      • within 45 days of the Baseline visit for Lucentis® (ranibizumab) or Avastin® (bevacizumab);
      • or within 60 days of the Baseline visit for anti-VEGF Trap (Aflibercept).
    • Subject on systemic carbonic anhydrase inhibitor within 1 week prior to Screening visit.
    • Subject with a history of scleritis.
    • Subject on cyclophosphamide within 30 days prior to the Baseline visit.
