Abstract
Purpose: To report the anti-inflammatory effect and best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) response after oral glucosamine (Glucosamine Sulfate 750®, General Nutrition Companies, Inc.) and aspirin (Aspirin protect®, Bayer) therapy in patients with uveitis. Methods: Twenty-seven patients (43 eyes) with uveitis, not easily managed with conventional therapy, were treated with oral glucosamine 750 mg and aspirin 100 mg daily, and underwent BCVA testing and slit-lamp examination of anterior chamber inflammation. Changes in the dose of previously-used oral steroids and immunosuppressants were recorded at baseline, every 2 weeks for the first 2 months, and once every month thereafter. Results: The mean follow-up period was 15.0±3.69 weeks and inflammation started to improve within 4.6 weeks. The change in visual acuity was not statistically significant, but grade of inflammation decreased by as much as 1.02±1.28, significantly (p<0.01) after treatment. In 12 patients (19 eyes, 44.2%) the dosage of systemic steroids and immunosuppressants could be Reduced. 7 patients (10 eyes, 23.3%) experienced aggravation of uveitis and the dosage of glucosamine and aspirin was increased. Conclusions: Concurrent oral administration of glucosamine and aspirin could not completely inhibit the recurrence of inflammation nor control it, but consistent use of these drugs may help to reduce inflammation without serious side effects. A longer prospective control study with larger sample size is required to further evaluation of the efficacy of the medication
