Brief Title  ICMJE FOCUS: First in Human Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of GT005 Administered in Subjects With Dry AMD
Official Title  ICMJE FOCUS: An Open Label First in Human Phase I/II Multicentre Study to Evaluate the Safety, Dose Response and Efficacy of GT005 Administered as a Single Subretinal Injection in Subjects With Macular Atrophy Due to AMD
Brief Summary This is an open label first in human Phase I/II multicentre study of GT005 in subjects with Macular Atrophy due to AMD
Detailed Description This study will evaluate the safety, the dose response and efficacy (anatomical and functional visual outcomes) of three doses of GT005 administered as a single subretinal injection in genetically defined subjects with Macular Atrophy due to Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD). Following consent, subjects will undergo a number of ophthalmic and clinical assessments to determine eligibility for inclusion in the study. Once eligibility is confirmed, subjects will be enrolled, receive treatment, and will be followed for 48 weeks, with the option to be followed for a further 4 years in long-term follow up after completing week 48.
