AIM: To study complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) use in patients who suffer from inflammatory eye disease. METHODS: Current and previous use of CAM was determined by face-to-face interviews of consecutive patients attending a university-based tertiary-referral inflammatory eye disease clinic during a 3-month period. Additional sociodemographic and clinical information was obtained by review of clinical records. RESULTS: Of the 89 eligible patients who were interviewed, 37 (42%) reported using CAM for the specific purpose of improving their eye condition.

Qingkailing injection is a well-known composite formula of traditional Chinese medicine and is commonly used in clinical practice, which could offer immunomodulatory effect from our clinical experience on uveitis treatment by Qingkailing. We did the experiment in order to investigate the curative effect and mechanism of Qingkailing injection to rat experimental autoimmune uveitis (EAU). EAU was induced in Lewis rats by immunization IRBP1177-1191 in complete Freund's adjuvant in multi-point.
