Vernal Keratoconjunctivitis Understanding

Vernal Keratoconjunctivitis: Overview

Vernal Keratoconjunctivitis (VKC) is a relatively rare, chronic form of ocular allergy that can potentially cause severe visual complications. Affecting mainly children and young adults, it is an IgE- and T cell-mediated disease, leading to a chronic inflammation in which eosinophil, lymphocyte and structural cell activation are involved. Treatment of VKC requires a multiple approach that includes conservative measures and pharmacologic treatment. Signs and symptoms usually begin before 10 years of age and may include hard, cobblestone-like bumps (papillae) on the upper eyelid; sensitivity to light; redness; sticky mucus discharge; and involuntary blinking or spasms of the eyelid. Management focuses on preventing flare ups and relieving the symptoms of the condition. It is often recommended that affected individuals try to avoid the agent that causes the allergy (if possible); wear dark sunglasses in the daytime; avoid dust; and stay inside on hot afternoons. Topical eye drops are generally preferred as the first source of treatment. Cold compresses, artificial tears, ointments and/or topical antihistamines may help. Non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) may relieve symptoms in moderate cases; topical steroids are typically only used for more severe cases because long-term use can cause glaucoma.

Vernal Keratoconjunctivitis Emerging Drugs

iCo-008: iCo Therapeutics

Bertilimumab is a fully human monoclonal antibody with specificity for human eotaxin-1 and inhibits its function. Favourable results from pre-clinical assessments resulted in three clinical studies of bertilimumab conducted in EU (a total of 126 patients - healthy individuals, patients with a history of seasonal allergic rhinitis and individuals with a history of seasonal allergic conjunctivitis) provided evidence of good safety and tolerability of bertilimumab when administered by the intravenous (IV) or intranasal route as well as topical application to the eye. A Phase II clinical trial for patients with vernal keratoconjunctivitis and/or atopic keratoconjunctivitis (involving cornea and conjunctiva) is in preparation.
