Non-infectious, autoimmune anterior uveitis is a significant cause of ocular disease in both dogs, horses, and humans with the potential for significant vision loss. The mainstay of treatment is topical and/or systemic corticosteroids, however, animals, similar to humans, are not uncommonly resistant to therapy. Additionally, prolonged corticosteroid treatment may cause systemic and ocular toxicity. We describe here a case of steroid-resistant uveitis successfully treated with GLS-1027, an immunomodulatory compound that inhibits Th17 maturation and release of multiple inflammatory cytokines involved in the pathogenesis of uveitis. GLS-1027 may provide an alternative as a steroid-sparing therapeutic option.
