Purpose: To study the efficacy and safety of suprachoroidal CLS-TA (proprietary suspension of triamcinolone acetonide) in uveitic macular edema (UME) with and without concurrent systemic corticosteroid or steroid-sparing therapy (ST). Methods: Post hoc analysis of the PEACHTREE phase 3 randomized trial. Results: Among UME patients receiving no ST, at week 24, mean BCVA change was +15.6 letters in 68 CLS-TA patients versus +4.9 letters in 49 sham-control patients (p < .001), while mean CST change was −169.8 µm versus −10.3 µm, respectively (p < .001). Among patients receiving ST, at week 24, mean BCVA change was +9.4 letters in 28 CLS-TA patients versus −3.2 letters in 15 sham-control patients (p = .019), while mean CST change was −108.3 µm versus −43.5 µm, respectively (p = .190). No SAEs related to treatment were reported. Conclusions: A clinically meaningful benefit of CLS-TA was noted in UME patients, regardless of concurrent ST usage.
