Brief Summary:
The study is designed to identify the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) for intravitreal (IVT) administration of GEM103 in subjects with geographic atrophy (GA) secondary to dry AMD. Safety and tolerability of a single dose of GEM103 will be assessed based on the occurrence of dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs). Each subject will be followed for safety, pharmacokinetic (PK), clinical, and biomarker evaluations. Three escalating dose cohorts are planned.

Detailed Description:

This is a Phase 1, multicenter, open-label, single-dose, dose-escalation study in subjects with GA secondary to dry AMD to investigate the safety, tolerability, pharmacodynamics (PD), and immunogenicity of IVT injections of GEM103 to a single eye.

The study is designed to identify the MTD for IVT administration of GEM103. Safety and tolerability of a single dose of GEM103 will be assessed based on the occurrence of DLTs. Three escalating dose cohorts are planned.

Subjects will undergo clinical and ophthalmic assessments for inclusion eligibility into the study. Enrolled subjects will receive GEM103 and be followed for safety, PK, clinical, and biomarker evaluations.

    • Ongoing treatment with antiangiogenic therapies in the fellow eye or completed treatment in the study eye
  3. Any prior or ongoing medical condition (e.g. ocular other than dry AMD, systemic, psychiatric) or clinically significant screening laboratory value that may present a safety risk, interfere with study compliance, interfere with consistent study follow-up, or confound data interpretation throughout the longitudinal follow-up period
  4. Female subjects must not be pregnant or lactating
  5. Current use of medications known to be toxic to the lens, retina, or optic nerve
