Slide 4

Macular Edema Due to Noninfectious Uveitis Uveitis and Macular Edema Macular edema (ME) is the leading cause of vision impairment and vision loss in uveitis ME is common 40% to 60% of intermediate, posterior and panuveitis 20% anterior Therapeutic options for ME Local periocular and intravitreal corticosteroids Systemic corticosteroids and steroid-sparing medications

Slide 5

Suprachoroidal Injection for Posterior Segment Disease Novel technique for suprachoroidal injection 30G needle approx. 1000 microns in length Proprietary microinjector syringe Laboratory data: Suprachoroidal vs. intravitreal injection Higher bioavailability in the choroid, RPE, and retina Lower exposure to the anterior segment Potential for improved efficacy and safety

p<0.001 for comparison PEACHTREE Met Its Primary Efficacy Endpoint: Visual Acuity Gain ≥15 ETDRS Letters from Baseline Intention-to-treat population; LOCF imputation. The p-value is based on a CMH Cochran-Mantel-Haenszel test for general association between treatment and response with stratification by country.
