The objectives of this study is to assess the characteristics and frequency of adenovirus conjunctivitis in a population of male and female patients from one year of age who present signs and symptoms of acute conjunctivitis.

Viral Conjunctivitis

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
Official Title: Epidemiological, Prospective, Multicentric, Open Study To Assess The Characteristics And Frequency Of Adenoviral Conjunctivitis As Diagnosed With The Point Of Care AdenoPlus® Test In Patients Suffering From Acute Conjunctivitis

Further study details as provided by NicOx:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Frequency of patients with adenovirus conjunctivitis [ Time Frame: During the visit to the ophthalmologist before and just after the AdenoPlus® test done on the same day (one visit) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The percentage of patients with adenovirus conjunctivitis documented by a positive AdenoPlus® test over the tested population of male and female patients who present signs and symptoms of acute conjunctivitis.

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Seasonality and geographic repartition observed. [ Time Frame: During the visit to the ophthalmologist before and just after the AdenoPlus® test done on the same day (one visit) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The number of patients with adenovirus conjunctivitis who visited the ophthalmologist in spring, summer, autumn and winter and their geographic area (e.g. by hospital, by area).

  • Clinical profiles of the patients [ Time Frame: During the visit to the ophthalmologist before and just after the AdenoPlus® test done on the same day (one visit) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The percentage of each eye signs and symptoms, the mean duration of the disease for both the patients with positive and negative AdenoPlus® tests, the number or follow-up visit done and the correlation between the initial diagnosis (before AdenoPlus® test results) and the final diagnosis (post AdenoPlus® test results).

  • Resource utilization during the treatment and evaluation of the costs [ Time Frame: On day 1: at least once during the single visit to the ophthalmologist and if any also during the follow-up visit(s) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Estimation of resource utilized during course of treatment (use of drugs, number of visits done by the patient…), and associated costs (which would be calculated by applying unit costs to resource use).

  • Patient/parent absenteeism linked to this disease. [ Time Frame: On day 1: at least once during the single visit to the ophthalmologist and if any also during the follow-up visit(s) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Number of days out of work and/or out of school linked to this disease.

  • Safety assessment [ Time Frame: On day 1: at least once during the single visit to the ophthalmologist and if any also during the follow-up visit(s) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Number of adverse incidents (AIs) and events that are of significant (SEs) reported to Nicox

Estimated Enrollment: 500

Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: November 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

Epidemiological, prospective, open, multicentric trial in patients suffering from acute conjunctivitis who will undergo a rapid diagnostic test for adenoviral conjunctivitis at the time of their visit to the ophthalmologist office, at the emergency room or during hospitalization. This epidemiological study will include approximately 500 patients in France. The planned duration of the study is one year from the first patient visit to the last patient visit.


Ages Eligible for Study:   1 Year and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male or Female patients of at least one year of age presenting acute (for less than 7 days) conjunctivitis signs and symptoms.
  • Patient or / and legal representative (if patient below 18 years of age) must be able to provide oral consent for the collection and treatment of the questionnaire data.
  • No history of hypersensitivity to corn starch, talcum powder or Dacron (sampling fleece components).

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Current use or having received (within the last 7 days) local antiviral therapies such as povidone iodine or ganciclovir, or topical steroids or immunomodulators such as cyclosporine which may interfere with the test result.
