Table 7 Individual variables with positive correlation to treatment outcome or the development of post-injection complications

From: Intravitreal injection of low-dose gentamicin for the treatment of recurrent or persistent uveitis in horses: Preliminary results.

Variable Treatment Outcome Post-Injection Complications
Breed Appaloosas: more recurrent inflammation than other breeds NC
Coat color Leopard patterned: more recurrent inflammation than other coat colours NC
Flare pre-IVGI NC NO flare: increased risk of retinal degeneration
Leptospira status of the eye Multiple positive C-values (≥4) for multiple individual serovars: increased incidence of persistent inflammation NC
Aqeuous humor titer in total Multiple positive individual aqueous humor titers for Leptospira (≥1:400): increased incidence of persistent inflammation NC
Single serum titer One positive serum titer for Leptospira (≥1:400): increased incidence of persistent inflammation NC
  1. Abbreviations: NC no correlation
