Brief Summary:

This study is a multicentre, prospective, non-interventional post-authorisation safety study (PASS) of the clinical outcomes for patients with LHON treated with Raxone®.

No medication will be provided as part of this study. Raxone® will be obtained through commercial channels.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Leber's Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (LHON) Drug: Idebenone

Layout table for study information
Study Type : Observational
Actual Enrollment : 229 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: A Non-interventional Study of Clinical Experience in Patients Prescribed Raxone® for the Treatment of Leber's Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (LHON)
Study Start Date : September 2016
Actual Primary Completion Date : April 16, 2021
Actual Study Completion Date : April 16, 2021

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Patients who are treated with Raxone® Drug: Idebenone
Raxone 900mg/day as per Raxone SmPC and medical judgement of treating physician.
Other Name: Raxone®

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Long-term safety profile of Raxone® in the treatment of patients with LHON when used under conditions of routine clinical care. [ Time Frame: up to 5 years ]
    Safety will be assessed by the collection and analysis of adverse events of special interest (AESIs), frequency and nature of AEs and serious adverse events (SAEs), adverse drug reactions (ADRs) and serious adverse drug reactions (SADRs)

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Long-term effectiveness of Raxone® in the treatment of patients with LHON when used under conditions of routine clinical care [ Time Frame: up to 5 years ]
    According to the Summary of Product Characteristics (SmPC) a patient's vision should be continually monitored therefore effectiveness will be assessed by measuring on-therapy changes in patients' visual acuity (VA), visual fields (VF), colour contrast sensitivity and Retinal Nerve Fibre Layer thickness (RNFL) where available.
