Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The Effect of Continuous Treatment With Subcutaneous AIN457 Compared to Placebo in Reducing the Rate of Recurrent Ocular Exacerbations in Behçet's Patients With Intermediate Uveitis, Posterior Uveitis or Panuveitis in Group 1. [ Time Frame: 62 weeks ]
    The primary objective of the study was to determine the effect of continuous treatment with subcutaneous AIN457 compared to placebo in reducing the rate of recurrent ocular exacerbations in Behçet's patients with intermediate uveitis, posterior uveitis or panuveitis in patients who completed the core study and continued treatment in the extension study (Group 1).Due to early termination of the study AIN457C2303E1, the analysis of extension period was changed. No efficacy analyses were completed, the safety analyses are available in the summary of AEs which occurred during the extension and safety follow-up periods and are shown in the safety section .
