Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 14 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Sequential Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Trial of AAVAnc80-hOTOF Gene Therapy in Individuals With Sensorineural Hearing Loss Due to Otoferlin Gene Mutations
Actual Study Start Date : September 15, 2023
Estimated Primary Completion Date : October 2028
Estimated Study Completion Date : October 2028


Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Cohort 1a and Cohort 1b

Cohort 1a: Two participants aged 7 to 17 years old (inclusive) to receive intracochlear administration of AAVAnc80-hOTOF (dose level 1) in the study ear using a sterile, one-time use investigational medical device

Cohort 1b: Up to six eligible participants will be enrolled to receive intracochlear administration of AAVAnc80-hOTOF (dose level 1) in the study ear using a sterile, one-time use investigational medical device; the first three participants will be at least two years of age at the time of AAVAnc80-hOTOF administration and the next three participants may be of any age

Combination Product: AAVAnc80-hOTOF via Akouos Delivery Device
AAVAnc80-hOTOF is a sterile suspension intended to be administered via a one-time unilateral intracochlear administration using the Akouos Delivery Device.

Experimental: Cohort 2
Cohort 2: Up to six eligible participants will be enrolled to receive intracochlear administration of AAVAnc80-hOTOF (dose level 2) in the study ear using a sterile, one-time use investigational medical device; the first three participants will be at least two years of age at the time of AAVAnc80-hOTOF administration and the next three participants may be of any age
Combination Product: AAVAnc80-hOTOF via Akouos Delivery Device
AAVAnc80-hOTOF is a sterile suspension intended to be administered via a one-time unilateral intracochlear administration using the Akouos Delivery Device.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Frequency of Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: through trial completion, approximately 1 year ]
    AEs with relationship to the investigational medicinal product and/or to the administration procedure (including the delivery device)


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR) Threshold [ Time Frame: through trial completion, approximately 1 year ]
    Changes from baseline in ABR intensity threshold (decibels normal hearing level [dB nHL])

  2. Performance of the Akouos Delivery Device [ Time Frame: through trial completion, approximately 1 year ]
    Performance based on the frequency of device deficiencies observed during delivery of AAVAnc80-hOTOF to the intracochlear space
