  Purpose

The purpose of this study is:

  • To evaluate whether 7-day treatment with oral QLT091001 can improve visual function in RP subjects with an autosomal dominant mutation in RPE65.
  • To evaluate duration of visual function improvement (if observed) in RP subjects with an autosomal dominant mutation in RPE65 after 7-day treatment with oral QLT091001.
  • To evaluate the safety of oral QLT091001 administered once daily for 7 days in RP subjects with an autosomal dominant mutation in RPE65.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects will have RP caused by an autosomal dominant mutation in RPE65, as diagnosed by an ocular geneticist or ophthalmologist.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects with any clinically important abnormal physical finding at Screening.
  • Subjects who have taken any prescription or investigational oral retinoid medication (e.g., Accutane/Roaccutane® or Soriatane/Neotigason®) within 6 months of Day 0 and subjects who did not tolerate their previous oral retinoid medication will be excluded regardless of the time of last exposure.
  • Subjects with a history of diabetes or chronic hyperlipidemia, hepatitis, pancreatitis, or cirrhosis.
  • Subjects who have taken any supplements containing ≥10,000 IU vitamin A within 60 days of Screening.
