Study efficacy of everolimus on course of uveitis:

  • obtain quiescence of inflammation after start of treatment
  • duration to obtain quiescence of inflammation
  • number of patients with quiescence of inflammation

occurence of new complications from uveitis

  • course of visual acuity (LogMAR): percentage of patients with visual loss of 10 or more numbers on ETDRS as compared to baseline
  • change of recurrence rate as compared to time before everolimus treatment
  • occurence of recurrence after obtaining remission with everolimus treatment
  • duration to occurence of recurrence o number of patients with recurrence
