Tennessee Retina is an active participant in many national research trials. The efforts of our physicians and patients have led to the approval of many treatments now considered to be the standard of care, and our continuing involvement in clinical research offers access to new and potentially superior treatments to patients with sight-threatening conditions. Participating in a clinical trial could bring new hope for patients afflicted with different retinal diseases. Future generations may benefit from the volunteers' choice to further medical research. 

As with all patients, our clinical trial patients are very important to us, and we provide them with exceptional care and attention. Please contact your current eyecare provider to see if you may qualify for one of our studies or contact one of our Clinical Trial staff members with any questions at (615) 983-6000.

Uveitis 

ADVISE  (Enrolling)

NCT03828019  Clinical Trials.gov

Non-infectious intermediate, posterior, and panuveitides are chronic, potentially-blinding diseases. Vision-threatening cases require long-term therapy with oral corticosteroids and immunosuppression. Based upon preliminary data, adalimumab, a fully-human, anti-TNF-α monoclonal antibody, now US FDA-approved for uveitis treatment, may be a superior corticosteroid-sparing agent than conventional immunosuppressive drugs. The ADVISE Trial is multicenter randomized, parallel-treatment, comparative effectiveness trial comparing adalimumab to conventional (small molecule) immunosuppression for corticosteroid spring in the treatment of non-infectious, intermediate, posterior, and panuveitides.

 

Notal

(Internal Study)

The Notal study is evaluating the patient's ability to use the Notal OCT Analyzer (NOA) themselves without the assistance of a technician. The NOA scans the macula to pick up any changes in Subretinal Fluid the patient may have had in between visits. The hope is this study will show that patients would be able to perform the scans on the NOA on themselves in their home in the future.
