Study Description
Brief Summary:
A clinical trial of AAV2 vector for patients with X-linked retinitis pigmentosa (XLRP)

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
X-Linked Retinitis Pigmentosa Genetic: AAV-RPGR Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This is an open-label phase I/II dose-escalation trial to determine the safety and efficacy of subretinal administration of AAV2 vector in participants with XLRP caused by mutations in RPGR.

Study Design

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 36 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Intervention Model Description: Biological
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Open Label, Multi-centre, Phase I/II Dose Escalation Trial of a Recombinant Adeno-associated Virus Vector (AAV2/5-hRKp.RPGR) for Gene Therapy of Adults and Children With X-linked Retinitis Pigmentosa Owing to Defects in Retinitis Pigmentosa GTPase Regulator (RPGR)
Actual Study Start Date : July 14, 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date : November 2020
Estimated Study Completion Date : November 2020


Arms and Interventions

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Low dose AAV-RPGR
Single, subretinal administration of low dose AAV-RPGR
Genetic: AAV-RPGR
Open label, non-randomised, dose-escalation intervention
Experimental: Intermediate dose AAV-RPGR
Single, subretinal administration of intermediate dose AAV-RPGR
Genetic: AAV-RPGR
Open label, non-randomised, dose-escalation intervention
Experimental: High dose AAV-RPGR
Single, subretinal administration of high dose AAV-RPGR
Genetic: AAV-RPGR
Open label, non-randomised, dose-escalation intervention


Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of Adverse Events related to the sub retinal administration of AAV2-RPGR [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    Safety is defined as the absence of ATIMP-related safety events


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Improvement in visual function [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    Improvements in visual function as assessed by ocular examination

  2. Improvement in retinal function [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    Improvements in retinal function as assessed by retinal assessement

  3. Improvement in Quality of Life [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    •Quality of life will be measured by QoL questionnaire
