The present invention relates to compositions and methods for treating ophthalmic disorders of humans or animals. The present compositions and methods are highly suitable for intraocular administration into the interior of an eye and provide therapeutic effects to the eye as they are effective in stabilizing, enhancing and/or improving a patients vision. More specifically, the present invention relates to compositions and methods for treating ophthalmic diseases or disorders with exudative, hemorrhagic and/or inflammatory conditions. Even more specifically, the present invention relates to compositions and methods for treating retinal diseases or disorders, and more specifically ophthalmic diseases or disorders related to impaired retinal vessel permeability and/or integrity.

Methods are described for preventing or reducing ischemia and/or systemic inflammatory response in a patient such as perioperative blood loss and/or systemic inflammatory response in a patient subjected to cardiothoracic surgery, e.g. coronary artery bypass grafting and other surgical procedures, especially when such procedures involve extra-corporeal circulation, such as cardiopulmonary bypass.


Disclosed herein are compositions comprising one or more antibodies that specifically bind active plasma kallikrein (e.g., human plasma kallikrein) and methods of using such compositions for the treatment of retinal diseases, such as diabetic macular edema.


The present disclosure provides methods of evaluating a subject, e.g., a subject at risk for or suffering from a pKal-mediated or bradykinin-mediated disorder, based on values (e.g., percentages) of intact and/or cleaved kininogen in a sample of the subject. Provided methods permit analysis of patients with plasma kallikrein-mediated angioedema (KMA), or other diseases mediated by pKal useful in the evaluation and treatment. Such methods can involve the use of a detection agent that preferentially binds cleaved kininogen or intact kininogen.
