Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The number and percentage of patients with treatment emergent adverse events.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Delay in retinal degeneration [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Changes from baseline function relative to the contralateral eye utilising retinal analytical techniques.


Estimated Enrollment: 28
Study Start Date: June 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: May 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: November 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Subretinal injection StarGen
Dose escalation of subretinally injected StarGen
Genetic: StarGen
3 dose cohorts, gene therapy

Detailed Description:

There are two parts to the study. A dose-escalation phase looking at three doses of StarGen, eight patients will be recruited at the first dose level, and four each at the next two dose levels. This will be followed by a dose confirmation phase where the highest dose that is safe and well tolerated will be examined in up to twelve patients.
