Current Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: September 6, 2023)
  • Safety (Participants With Ocular and Non-ocular AEs (Adverse Events) and SAEs (Serious Adverse Events)) [ Time Frame: 12 months (Screening to 12 months post OCU410ST administration) ]
    The primary endpoint is safety, determined by the number of ocular and non-ocular Study Drug-related adverse events (SDAE), treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) and serious adverse events (SAEs).
  • Ophthalmic Safety: Change From Baseline in BCVA (Best Corrected Visual Acuity) [ Time Frame: 12 months (Screening to 12 months post OCU410ST administration) ]
    Visual function of the study eye was assessed using the Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) Best Corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA) letter score. A higher score represents better vision.
  • Ophthalmic Safety: Ophthalmoscope Measurements [ Time Frame: 12 months (Screening to 12 months post OCU410ST administration) ]
    We will use Slit-lamp Biomicroscopy to visualize the anatomy of ocular structures before and after sub-retinal injections and follow-up visits.
  • Ophthalmic Safety: Change in the Intraocular Pressure (mmHg) [ Time Frame: 12 months (Screening to 12 months post OCU410ST administration) ]
    Measured by applanation or rebound tonometry with confirmation with Goldmann tonometer if IOP is outside normal range (8-21mmHg).
  • Change Using Qualitative and quantitative assessments of autofluorescence pattern (FAF) [ Time Frame: 12 months (Screening to 12 months post OCU410ST administration) ]
    Changes in the intensity of FAF will be evaluated from the baseline measurements, to assess the loss of retinal layers.
  • Ophthalmic Safety: Changes in Full Field ERG [ Time Frame: 12 months (Screening to 12 months post OCU410ST administration) ]
    The International Society for Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision (ISCEV) guidelines will be followed for conducting ff-ERG (Full-field Electroretinography)

 (submitted: July 13, 2023)
  • Safety (Participants With Ocular and Non-ocular AEs (Adverse Events) and SAEs (Serious Adverse Events)) [ Time Frame: 12 months (Screening to 12 months post OCU410ST administration) ]
    The primary endpoint is safety, determined by the number of ocular and non-ocular Study Drug-related adverse events (SDAE), treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) and serious adverse events (SAEs). SDAEs are considered the primary adverse event of interest and defined as AEs and SAEs that are direct subjects to the Study Drug only. AEs will be defined as Ocular or Non-ocular for presentation. TEAE are defined as an event that was not present prior to administration of the dose of study drug and present after the dose, or if it represents the exacerbation of an event that was present prior to the dose. TEAEs are determined by the investigator, and given a gradient on how they are related to the specific treatment, such as surgery, cortical steroid etc. SAEs are defined as counts, frequencies and percentages of SAEs including Resulted in Death, Life-threatening, Hospitalization, Disabling/incapacitating, Congenital anomaly or birth defect and Medically significant AEs
  • Ophthalmic Safety: Change From Baseline in BCVA (Best Corrected Visual Acuity) [ Time Frame: 12 months (Screening to 12 months post OCU410ST administration) ]
    Visual function of the study eye was assessed using the Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) Best Corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA) letter score. A higher score represents better vision.
  • Ophthalmic Safety: Ophthalmoscope Measurements [ Time Frame: 12 months (Screening to 12 months post OCU410ST administration) ]
    We will use Slit-lamp biomicroscopy and Indirect ophthalmoscopy to visualize the anatomy of ocular structures before and after sub-retinal injections and follow-up visits. These measurements will allow documentation of abnormalities in the retina as well as the optic nerve, vessels and macula lutea post-study drug administration If visual acuity is so poor that the participant is unable to count fingers or perceive hand motion, light perception will be tested with the indirect ophthalmoscope as the light source.
  • Ophthalmic Safety: Change in the Intraocular Pressure (mmHg) [ Time Frame: 12 months (Screening to 12 months post OCU410ST administration) ]
    Measured by applanation or rebound tonometry with confirmation with Goldmann tonometer if IOP is outside normal range (8-21mmHg).
  • Change Using Qualitative and quantitative assessments of autofluorescence pattern (FAF) [ Time Frame: 12 months (Screening to 12 months post OCU410ST administration) ]
    The intensity of FAF will be evaluated using 55° posterior pole scanning.
  • Ophthalmic Safety: Changes in Full Field ERG [ Time Frame: 12 months (Screening to 12 months post OCU410ST administration) ]
    The International Society for Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision (ISCEV) guidelines will be followed for conducting ff-ERG (Full-field Electroretinography), plus an S-Cone protocol with blue flash on amber background.

Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Study to Assess the Safety and Efficacy of OCU410ST for Stargardt Disease
Official Title  ICMJE A Phase 1/2 Study to Assess the Safety and Efficacy of OCU410ST for STARGARDT DISEASE
Brief Summary

This is a Phase 1/2 Study to Assess the Safety and Efficacy of OCU410ST for Stargardt Disease.

This is a multicenter study, which will be conducted in two phases and will enroll up to a total of 42 subjects.

Detailed Description

Name of Investigational Product: OCU410ST Name of Active Ingredient: Adeno-associated viral vector 5 human RORA (AAV5-hRORA)

Title of Study: A Phase 1/2 Study to Assess the Safety and Efficacy of OCU410ST for Stargardt Disease.

Study Center(s): Approximately five clinical study centers in the US.

Background: Stargardt disease is an eye disease that causes vision loss in children and young adults. It is an inherited disease caused by faulty genes that cause buildup of fat deposits in the eye. Currently, there is no approved treatment available for Stargardt disease.

OCU410ST Product Information:

OCU410ST is an Adeno-Associated Virus serotype 5 containing human RORA for the treatment of Stargardt disease. Dysregulation in lipid metabolism, oxidative stress, and anti-inflammatory mechanisms are critical for pathogenesis and progression of Stargardt disease. The role of hRORA in regulating these gene pathways strongly suggests OCU410ST could restore homeostasis in the eye and thereby serve as a therapeutic candidate for Stargardt disease.

This study will be conducted in two phases. enrolling up to 42.

Phase 1 is a multicenter, open-label, dose-ranging/dose escalation study with a 3+3 design enrolling up to 18 subjects

Phase 2 is a randomized, dose-expansion cohort in which 24 subjects will be randomized in a 1:1:1 ratio in to either one of two treatment groups (adults and pediatric subjects) or to an untreated (adults and pediatric subjects) control group.

Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Phase 1

Intervention Model Description:

The study will be conducted in two phases.

Phase 1 is a multicenter, open-label, dose-ranging/dose escalation study. A 3+3 study design will be used for the sequential dose-escalation cohorts in which subjects will receive a single subretinal injection of OCU410ST.
