NEWS HIGHLIGHTS

Published Studies Related to Pred-Mild (Prednisolone Ophthalmic)

A multicenter randomized controlled fellow eye trial of pulse-dosed difluprednate 0.05% versus prednisolone acetate 1% in cataract surgery. [2011.10]
PURPOSE: To compare the effects of 2 corticosteroids on corneal thickness and visual acuity after cataract surgery. DESIGN: Multicenter, randomized, contralateral-eye, double-masked trial... CONCLUSIONS: In this high-dose pulsed-therapy regimen, difluprednate reduced inflammation more effectively than prednisolone acetate, resulting in more rapid return of vision. Difluprednate was superior at protecting the cornea and reducing macular thickening after cataract surgery. Copyright (c) 2011 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

Randomized trial of intravitreal clindamycin and dexamethasone versus pyrimethamine, sulfadiazine, and prednisolone in treatment of ocular toxoplasmosis. [2011.01]
PURPOSE: To compare the efficacy of intravitreal injection of clindamycin and dexamethasone with classic treatment for ocular toxoplasmosis... CONCLUSIONS: Intravitreal injection of clindamycin and dexamethasone may be an acceptable alternative to the classic treatment in ocular toxoplasmosis. It may offer the patient more convenience, a safer systemic side effect profile, greater availability, and fewer follow-up visits and hematologic evaluations.

Methylprednisolone applied directly to the round window reduces dizziness after cochlear implantation: a randomized clinical trial. [2011]
This prospective, double-blind controlled, randomized clinical trial of 43 adults showed that topical methylprednisolone applied to the round window during cochlear implantation was effective in protecting inner ear function. Postoperative vestibular disturbance was significantly lower in the steroid group (5%) than the control group (29%)...

Durezol (Difluprednate Ophthalmic Emulsion 0.05%) compared with Pred Forte 1% ophthalmic suspension in the treatment of endogenous anterior uveitis. [2010.10]
PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of difluprednate ophthalmic solution 0.05% (Durezol; Alcon Laboratories, Fort Worth, TX) compared with prednisolone acetate ophthalmic suspension 1% (Pred Forte; Allergan, Inc., Irvine, CA) for endogenous anterior uveitis... CONCLUSIONS: Difluprednate administered QID is at least as effective as prednisolone administered 8x/day in resolving the inflammation and pain associated with endogenous anterior uveitis. Difluprednate provides effective treatment for anterior uveitis and requires less frequent dosing than prednisolone acetate. Clinical trial registration: Trial NCT00501579 was registered at the National Institutes of Health Registry in July 2007 ( http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00501579?term=sirion&rank=4 ).

Comparison of orbital floor triamcinolone acetonide and oral prednisolone for cataract surgery management in patients with non-infectious uveitis. [2010.05]
PURPOSE: To compare orbital floor triamcinolone acetonide and oral prednisolone in cataract surgery in patients with chronic non-infectious uveitis with regard to visual outcome, postoperative inflammation and macular edema... CONCLUSIONS: A single intraoperative orbital floor injection of triamcinolone acetonide is as effective on postoperative inflammation, macular edema, and visual outcome as a 4-week course of postoperative oral prednisolone in cataract surgery with IOL implantation in uveitis patients.

Clinical Trials Related to Pred-Mild (Prednisolone Ophthalmic)

A Comparison of Three Different Formulations of Prednisolone Acetate 1% [Completed]

Prednisolone Priming Study in Patients With Chronic Hepatitis B [Recruiting]
Study purpose: To investigate whether ALT rebound following corticosteroid priming enhances response to telbivudine therapy. Efficacy assessments: The primary endpoint will be the 1-year HBe-Ag seroconversion rate with or without prednisolone priming. Data analysis: A summary table will be presented as frequency tables for categorical variables as number, and percentage, whereas descriptive tables for continuous variables as number, mean SD and median (minimum, maximum). All statistical assessments will be two-sided and evaluated at significance level of 0. 05. Continuous variables will be analyzed using t-test, or ANOVA, and categorical variables will be analyzed using chi-square or Fisher's exact test. A non-parametric method, Wilcoxon rank-sum or sign-rank tests will be conducted for continuous, and categorical variables if data is far from normal distribution.

Biomarkers of Prednisolone Treatment (P05888) [Completed]
Primary objective:

- To identify a biomarker or biomarker-set for the adverse metabolic effects of various

doses of prednisolone treatment. Secondary objectives:

- To describe the PK of prednisolone and PD of a series of biomarkers.

- To identify biomarkers that reflect side effects of prednisolone.

- To elucidate part of the mechanisms by which prednisolone induces metabolic changes.

Preoperative Methylprednisolone in Endovascular Aortic Repair [Completed]

The Efficacy of Three Months-prednisolone Therapy for Chronic Eosinophilic Pneumonia [Completed]
A comparison of 3 months-prednisolone administration with 6 months-prednisolone therapy in the treatment of chronic eosinophilic pneumonia. Three months-prednisolone administration may be as effective as 6 months-therapy.
