spondylitis and anterior uveitis M. Alexander Otto writing for Rheumatology
News reported on a study from Gothenburg University involving 1,365 patients with ankylosing spondylitis.
Compared with both Enbrel and Remicade, Humira led to many fewer office visits for anterior
uveitis. Flares also decreased by about 40%. Enbrel appeared to make uveitis worse.
Comment: One of my sons who has ankylosing spondylitis had an episode of anterior uveits
this past summer. Very frightening. It is imperative to have the patient see an ophthalmologist
as soon as possible.

One thought on “Health | Humira uveitis

  • Thank you for the video. I recently had anterior uveitis and after some blood test found out I have AS. I was prescribed Humira and I'm a little cautious taking it because of all the possible side effects. In the study you mentioned, was there a common side effect to people that had uveitis and AS? I couldn't seem to find the article.
