More info

Optimmune is a white petrolatum based ointment for ophthalmic use, containing 0.2% w/w cyclosporin Ph. Eur.

Uses

Cyclosporin is an immunosuppressant with lacrimomimetic and anti-inflammatory properties.In the dog, Optimmune is indicated for the treatment of chronic recurrent conjunctivitis resulting from auto-immune disease of the eye. Optimmune is indicated for the therapeutic treatment of keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS, `dry eye') and chronic superficial keratitis (`pannus'). Optimmune may be used to augment topical corticosteroids or as a substitute for corticosteroids when these are contraindicated by corneal ulceration.
 
Dosage and administration

For topical administration to the conjunctival sac. Apply a small amount of ointment (approximately 1/4 inch or 1/2 cm) into the affected eye(s) every 12 hours.
Any excessive discharge in the eye should be removed prior to application of the ointment by gently cleansing or flushing the eye with a suitable non-irritating solution.
 
Duration of treatment
Clinical experience suggests that 90% of dogs affected with KCS will require life-long therapy. However, if therapy is maintained the prognosis is good providing that regular clinical assessment is carried out. Current experience suggests that, in the treatment of `pannus', the frequency of application of Optimmune may be suspended or reduced during certain periods of the year when levels of ultraviolet light, which exacerbates this condition, are reduced.
