Sandcat GR44278 (Uveitic Macular Edema) - Clinical Trial
What is the Purpose of this Study?
We are doing this study to find out the effects, good or bad, of an investigational drug called RO7200220 (the study drug) for participants with uveitic macular edema. This condition is caused by uveitis, and it is when fluid builds up in the retinal layers and causes swelling that can impair vision.

What is Involved?
If you choose to join the study, you will:
- Get a random assignment (fair, equal chance) to 1 of 3 groups
-- Group A and B will both receive an injection of the study drug in the eye, but the doses will be different for these 2 groups
-- Group C will receive a sham procedure that feels like a real drug injection, but it does not involve a needle being inserted into the eye and nothing is injected into the eye
You will not know your group assignment until the study is over. After you receive your injection or sham procedure, you will visit our clinic up to 15 times over the course of about a year. During these visits, you will have blood draws, eye exams, vision tests, and answer some questionnaires.
