Brief Summary:
The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the preliminary safety and immunogenicity (ability of an antigen to provoke immune response in the human body) of CNTO 2476, administered subretinally, in participants with advanced retinitis pigmentosa (RP; disease of the eye that leads to loss of vision and blindness) with either light perception only (LP) or hand motion (HM).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Retinitis Pigmentosa Drug: CNTO 2476 Phase 1

Detailed Description:
The study will be an open-label (all people know the identity of the intervention), first in human safety study. Nine adult men and women with advanced RP with LP only (first 5 participants) or not better than HM bilaterally (subsequent 4 participants) in both eyes will be enrolled. Participant 5 may have combination visual acuity of LP in the treated eye and no better than HM in the fellow eye. Treatment will proceed on a cohort basis ie, Cohort I: Participant 1; Cohort II: Participant 2; Cohort III: Participant 3 and 4; Cohort IV: Participant 5, 6, and 7; and Cohort V: Participant 8 and 9. The initial participants for each cohort must have completed at least 4 weeks of post-treatment follow-up before participants in the next cohort may be treated. There are 2 safety assessment phases in this study: the main phase approximately 12 months from the time the participant is eligible to enter the study and the long-term safety follow-up phase of 4 additional years. The total length of the participation in the study could last up to 5 years (including both the main and safety follow-up phases).

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 7 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase I Open Label Non-comparative Study Evaluating the Safety of a Single, Unilateral, Subretinal Administration of CNTO 2476 in Advanced Retinitis Pigmentosa
Study Start Date : April 2007
Actual Primary Completion Date : August 2013
Actual Study Completion Date : August 2013

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: CNTO 2476
Participants 1 to 4: advanced retinitis pigmentosa (RP) with light perception only (LP); Participant 5: combination visual acuity of LP in the treated eye and no better than hand motion (HM) in the fellow eye; and Participants 6 to 9: advanced RP with hand motion (HM) will receive different dose levels of CNTO 2476.
Drug: CNTO 2476
Participant 1 will receive 5.6x100000; Participants 2, 3, 5, 6, and 7 will receive 6.0x10000; Participant 4 will receive 3.0x100000; and Participants 8 and 9 will receive 1.2x100000 of CNTO 2476 as a single dose of viable cells in phosphate buffered saline (PBS) in a total volume of 100 μL injected subretinally.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of adverse events as a measure of safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years from the time participant is eligible to enter study ]
  2. Level of anti-CNTO 2476 antibody in blood for immunogenicity testing [ Time Frame: Baseline, Days 7 and 15, Weeks 3 and 4, Months 2, 3, 6, 12, 24, 36, 48, and 60 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from baseline in retinal structure and visual function [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years from the time participant is eligible to enter study ]
    This will be assessed by optical coherence tomography (OCT), fluorescein angiography (FA), fundus photography, and visual field sensitivity (FFST).
