Uveitis can be identified as a range of inflammatory conditions causing pain in the middle layer of the eye, uvea. However, it is not limited to uvea, but also affects retina, lens, optic nerve, and vitreous humor. Due to this disorder, eyes appear red and swollen. The disease can either reduce the vision or result in complete loss of vision. A number of ophthalmology-related disorders or inflammation in other parts of the body can cause uveitis. The disease is characterized by blurred vision, floating spots in the eye, redness, pain, and photophobia. Uveitis can be classified into four types depending on the part of uvea affected: anterior uveitis, intermediate uveitis, posterior uveitis, and pan-uveitis. Anterior uveitis, intermediate uveitis, and posterior uveitis lead to swelling of uvea near the front, middle, and toward the back of the eye, respectively; whereas pan-uveitis causes inflammation in all layers of the uvea.

The disease can be diagnosed by performing several tests, including split lamp test, visual acuity test, fundoscopic exam, and ocular pressure test. Furthermore, the current line of treatment includes administration of steroidal anti-inflammatory medication, immunosuppressants, mydriatic eye drops, and antibiotics. Moreover, Humira (AbbVie Inc.), Kenalog-40 (Bristol-Myers Squibb Company), Ozudrex (Allergan Inc.), and Durezol (Novartis International AG) are amongst the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) approved drugs for the treatment of uveitis.

Positive clinical trial results and strategic development activities of companies are also facilitating drug development in uveitis therapeutics pipeline. Additionally, the issuance of patents helps in achieving different milestones in the form of grants and designations from regulatory bodies and institutes, including the USFDA, the European Medicines Agency (EMA), and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), among others.

Pipeline Analysis

As of March 2019, the uveitis therapeutics pipeline comprised 15+ therapeutic candidates in different stages of development.

Epidemiology Analysis

The report also provides epidemiology forecast of uveitis for seven major markets, such as the U.S., Japan, and EU5 countries (the U.K., Germany, France, Italy, and Spain). It covers prevalent population and treated patient population for the period 2016–2028. According to a study published in the Indian Journal of Inflammation Research in 2017, the global prevalence of uveitis is 14–17 per 100,000 population.
