Uveitis is typically treated with glucocorticoid steroids , either as topical eye drops (prednisolone acetate) or as oral therapy. [26] Prior to the administration of corticosteroids, corneal ulcers must be ruled out. This is typically done using a fluoresence dye test. [27] In addition to corticosteroids, topical cycloplegics , such as atropine or homatropine , may be used. Successful treatment of active uveitis increases T-regulatory cells in the eye, which likely contributes to disease regression. [28] In some cases an injection of posterior subtenon triamcinolone acetate may also be given to reduce the swelling of the eye. [29]

Whitington and Kelly (2008) stated that neonatal hemochromatosis (NH) is the result of severe fetal liver injury that seems to result from maternal-fetal alloimmunity.  Women who have had an infant affected with NH are at high-risk in subsequent pregnancies for having another affected infant.  This study was designed to examine if therapy directed at limiting the severity of gestational alloimmunity can reduce the occurrence of severe NH in infants of women at risk.  A secondary objective was to use a prospectively collected data set to examine questions of vital interest about NH.  Women with a history of pregnancy ending in documented NH were treated with IVIG at 1 g/kg of body weight weekly from the 18th week until the end of gestation.  Extensive data were prospectively collected regarding the gestational histories of the subjects.  The outcomes of treated pregnancies were compared with those of previous affected pregnancies, which were used as historical controls.  A total of 48 women were enrolled to be treated during 53 pregnancies.  The gestational histories of these women demonstrated the high-risk of occurrence of NH: 92 % of pregnancies at risk resulted in intrauterine fetal demise, neonatal death, or liver failure necessitating transplant.  In contrast, with gestational therapy, the 53 at-risk gestations resulted in 3 failures and 52 infants who survived intact with medical therapy alone.  When compared on a per-woman or per-infant basis, the outcome of gestation at risk for NH was improved by gestational therapy.  The authors concluded that NH seems to be the result of a gestational alloimmune disease, and occurrence of severe NH in at-risk pregnancies can be significantly reduced by treatment with high-dose IVIG during gestation.

Intravenously administered glucocorticoids , such as prednisone , are the standard of care in acute GvHD [7] and chronic GVHD. [24] The use of these glucocorticoids is designed to suppress the T-cell-mediated immune onslaught on the host tissues; however, in high doses, this immune-suppression raises the risk of infections and cancer relapse. Therefore, it is desirable to taper off the post-transplant high-level steroid doses to lower levels, at which point the appearance of mild GVHD may be welcome, especially in HLA mis-matched patients, as it is typically associated with a graft-versus-tumor effect. [ citation needed ] . Cyclosporine and tacrolimus are inhibitors of calcineurin. Both substances are structurally different but have the same mechanism of action. Cyclosporin binds to the cytosolic protein Peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase A (known as cyclophilin), while tacrolimus binds to the cytosolic protein Peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase FKBP12. These complexes inhibit calcineurin, block dephosphorylation of the transcription factor NFAT of activated T-cells and its translocation into the nucleus. [25] Standard prophylaxis involves the use of cyclosporine for six months with methotrexate. Cyclosporin levels should be maintained above 200 ng/ml. [26] Other substances that have been studied for GvHD prophylaxis include, for example: sirolimus, pentostatin and alemtuzamab. [26]
