|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Uveitis, Anterior Adalimumab||Drug: Adalimumab Drug: Methotrexate||Phase 4|
This is a prospective, single-center, interventional, randomized, non-blinded, controlled clinical trial that will be performed at the Ophthalmology Department, Peking Union Medical College Hospital.
Children with active noninfectious anterior uveitis demonstrating peripheral vascular leakage on UWFFA and meet the selection criteria will be randomly assigned to treatment group or control group.
Both groups will be treated with a predesigned plan for the active inflammation. At one month or when patients' ocular inflammation gets controlled to 0.5+ cell in the anterior chamber, whichever comes later, patients in the treatment group will be given adalimumab subcutaneously at 40mg every 2 weeks, patients in the control group will be given methotrexate10mg orally once a week.
Follow-up visits will be scheduled every two weeks at the run-in period and the first month after randomization, and every month from the second to the sixth month.
The primary endpoint is treatment failure defined as any inflammatory fare with anterior chamber cell count grading increased from 0 to 1.
Secondary endpoints are best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), inflammation parameters (keratic precipitates, vitreous haze grades), extent of vascular leakage, frequency of topical steroid eyedrops, systemic immunosuppressive drug load, and adverse events.

- Uveitis flare [ Time Frame: At 6 months' follow-up visit ]
Uveitis flare is defined as anterior chamber cell count grading increased from 0 to 1.
The grading method is in accordance with SUN criteria. Anterior chamber cell count was scored according to Standardization of Uveitis Nomenclature (SUN) criteria
- Extent of peripheral vascular leakage [ Time Frame: At 6 months' follow-up visit ]Vascular leakage was quantified based on the method developed by the Angiography Scoring for Uveitis Working Group (ASUWOG), in which vascular leakage in the posterior pole and in each peripheral quadrant was scored 1 if limited and scored 2 if diffuse. Total maximum score will 8 since leakage in the posterior pole will be excluded in this study.
- Keratic precipitates [ Time Frame: At 6 months' follow-up visit ]Keratic precipitates was recorded in a dichotomous method.
- Vitreous haze [ Time Frame: At 6 months' follow-up visit ]Vitreous haze will graded as the same method of anterior chamber cell, the slit lamp will be pushed forward to the vitreous to observe vitreous haze.
- Best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) [ Time Frame: At 6 months' follow-up visit ]BCVA was transformed into logMar form
- Adverse events [ Time Frame: through study completion, an average of 6 months ]Adverse events included the infectious events and laboratory parameter abnormalities.
- frequency of topical steroid eyedrops if any inflammatory flare happens. [ Time Frame: At 6 months' follow-up visit ]Different GCs eye drops are transformed into equivalent 1% prednisolone for analysis.
- Systemic immunomodulatory therapy (sIMT, including GCs and immunosuppressive drugs)load at the 6-month follow-up visit if any inflammatory flare ever happens. [ Time Frame: At 6 months' follow-up visit ]sIMT load is transformed into a quantizable score based on prior studies in uveitis.
