Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Mucopolysaccharidosis Type 3 A Sanfilippo Syndrome Biological: scAAV9.U1a.hSGSH Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Self-complementary adeno-associated virus serotype 9 carrying the human SGSH gene under the control of a U1a promoter (scAAV9.U1a.hSGSH) will be delivered one time through a venous catheter inserted into a peripheral limb vein. The vector will be delivered undiluted over 15 to 45 minutes, under sedation as needed. Dosing volume will be approximately 0.5 to 3 mL/kg, depending on final vector product concentration and subject cohort. A tapering course of prophylactic enteral prednisone or prednisolone will be administered

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   6 Months and older   (Child, Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Age 6 months to 2 years or children older than 2 years with a minimum cognitive Developmental Quotient (DQ) of 60 or above (calculated by Bayley Scales of Infant and Toddler Development - Third Edition)
  • Confirmed diagnosis of MPS IIIA by the following methods:
  • No detectable or significantly reduced* SGSH enzyme activity by leukocyte assay
  • Genomic DNA analysis demonstrating homozygous or compound heterozygous mutations in the SGSH gene

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Inability to participate in the clinical evaluation as determined by PI
  • Identification of two nonsense or null variants on genetic testing of the SGSH gene
  • At least one S298P mutation in the SGSH gene
  • Has evidence of an attenuated phenotype of MPS IIIA
  • Presence of a concomitant medical condition that precludes lumbar puncture or use of anesthetics
  • Active viral infection based on clinical observations
  • Concomitant illness or requirement for chronic drug treatment that in the opinion of the PI creates unnecessary risks for gene transfer or precludes the child from participating in the protocol assessments and follow up
  • Subjects with total anti-AAV9 antibody titers ≥ 1:100 as determined by ELISA binding immunoassay
  • Subjects with a positive response for the ELISPOT for T-cell responses to AAV9
  • Serology consistent with exposure to HIV, or serology consistent with active hepatitis B or C infection
  • Bleeding disorder or any other medical condition or circumstance in which a lumbar puncture (for collection of CSF) is contraindicated according to local institutional policy
  • Visual or hearing impairment sufficient to preclude cooperation with neurodevelopmental testing
  • Uncontrolled seizure disorder
  • Any item (braces, etc.) which would exclude the patient from being able to undergo MRI according to local institutional policy
  • Any other situation that precludes the subject from undergoing any other procedure required in this study
  • Subjects with cardiomyopathy or significant congenital heart abnormalities
  • The presence of significant non-MPS IlIA related CNS impairment or behavioral disturbances that would confound the scientific rigor or interpretation of results of the study
  • Abnormal laboratory values Grade 2 or higher as defined in CTCAE v4.0 for GGT, total bilirubin, creatinine, hemoglobin, WBC count, platelet count, PT and aPTT
  • Female participant who is pregnant or demonstrates a positive urine or bhCG result at screening assessment (if applicable)
  • Any vaccination with viral attenuated vaccines less than 30 days prior to the scheduled date of treatment (and use of prednisolone)
  • Previous treatment by Haematopoietic Stem Cell transplantation
  • Previous participation in a gene/cell therapy or ERT clinical trial

    • Due to the nature of enzyme activity testing, normal ranges and reported units vary from lab to lab. Many laboratories utilize control samples rather than normal ranges, to account for the influence of small day-to-day fluctuations in the laboratory environment.
    • For the purposes of invitation to a screening visit, we will accept "significantly reduced" results as those interpreted as such by any clinical laboratory approved to perform this diagnostic test.

For uniformity of data for analysis, and confirmation of accurate diagnosis before gene transfer, subjects who consent to complete the screening visit will have their blood drawn for confirmatory enzyme activity level to be performed by Greenwood Genetics Center Biochemical Laboratory. Subjects must have an enzyme activity level considered to be in the affected range by Greenwood Genetic Center Biochemical Laboratory to proceed within the study.
