  Purpose
Excessive vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) plays a key part in promoting neovascularization and edema in neovascular (wet) age-related macular degeneration (nAMD). VEGF inhibitors (anti-VEGF), including ranibizumab (LUCENTIS®, Genentech) and aflibercept (EYLEA®, Regeneron), have been shown to be safe and effective for treating nAMD and have demonstrated improvement in vision. However, anti-VEGF therapy is administered frequently via intravitreal injection and can be a significant burden to the patients. RGX-314 is a recombinant adeno-associated virus (AAV) gene therapy vector carrying a coding sequence for a soluble anti-VEGF protein. The long-term, stable delivery of this therapeutic protein following a 1 time gene therapy treatment for nAMD could potentially reduce the treatment burden of currently available therapies while maintaining vision with a favorable benefit:risk profile.

Detailed Description:
This Phase I, open-label, multiple-cohort, dose-escalation study is designed to evaluate the safety and tolerability of RGX-314 gene therapy in subjects with previously treated nAMD. Three doses will be studied in approximately 18 subjects. Subjects who meet the inclusion/exclusion criteria and have an anatomic response to an initial anti VEGF injection will receive a single dose of RGX-314 administered by subretinal delivery. RGX-314 uses an AAV8 vector that contains a gene that encodes for a monoclonal antibody fragment which binds to and neutralizes VEGF activity. Safety will be the primary focus for the initial 24 weeks after RGX-314 administration (primary study period). Following completion of the primary study period, subjects will continue to be assessed until 104 weeks following treatment with RGX-314.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Patients ≥ 50 years with a diagnosis of subfoveal CNV secondary to AMD in the study eye receiving prior intravitreal anti-VEGF therapy.
  2. BCVA between ≤20/100 and ≥20/400 (≤53 and ≥19 Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study [ETDRS] letters) for the first patient in each cohort followed by BCVA between ≤20/63 and ≥20/400 (≤63 and ≥19 ETDRS letters) for the rest of the cohort.
  3. History of need for and response to anti-VEGF.therapy.
  4. Response to anti-VEGF at trial entry (assessed by SD-OCT at week 1)
  5. Must be pseudophakic (status post cataract surgery) in the study eye.
  6. AST/ALT < 2.5 × ULN; TB < 1.5 × ULN; PT < 1.5 × ULN; Hb > 10 g/dL (males) and > 9 g/dL (females); Platelets > 100 × 10^3/µL; eGFR > 30 mL/min/1.73 m^2
  7. Must be willing and able to provide written, signed informed consent.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. CNV or macular edema in the study eye secondary to any causes other than AMD.
  2. Any condition preventing visual acuity improvement in the study eye, eg, fibrosis, atrophy, or retinal epithelial tear in the center of the fovea.
  3. Active or history of retinal detachment in the study eye.
  4. Advanced glaucoma in the study eye.
  5. History of intravitreal therapy in the study eye, such as intravitreal steroid injection or investigational product, other than anti-VEGF therapy, in the 6 months prior to screening.
  6. Presence of an implant in the study eye at screening (excluding intraocular lens).
  7. Myocardial infarction, cerebrovascular accident, or transient ischemic attacks within the past 6 months.
  8. Uncontrolled hypertension (systolic blood pressure [BP] >180 mmHg, diastolic BP >100 mmHg) despite maximal medical treatment.
