The purpose of the study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of an adeno-associated virus vector expressing RPE65 in patients with Leber congenital amaurosis caused by mutations in the ...
This study will deliver AAV2-hRPE65v2 vector to twelve subjects, age three or older; subjects will receive the vector via subretinal injection during surgery. The purpose of this research ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether 7-day treatment with oral QLT091001 is safe, tolerable and can improve visual function in subjects with Leber Congenital Amaurosis (LCA) du...
Primary Objective: To evaluate the safety and tolerability of ascending doses of SAR439483 administered as a unilateral subretinal injection in patients with Leber Congenital Amaurosis (L...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of QR-110 administered via intravitreal injection in subjects with LCA due to the CEP290 p.Cys998X mutation.
Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA) and early-onset retinal dystrophy (EORD), are primary causes of inherited childhood blindness. Both are autosomal recessive diseases, with mutations in more than 25 ge...
The human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC) line, derived from dermal fibroblasts from Leber congenital amaurosis patient with homozygous mutation c.265 T > C, p.Cys89Arg in aryl hydrocarbon...
Ocular gene therapy with recombinant adeno-associated virus (AAV) has shown vector-mediated gene augmentation to be safe and efficacious in the retina in one set of diseases (retinitis pigmentosa and ...
Leber congenital amaurosis type 10 is a severe retinal dystrophy caused by mutations in the CEP290 gene. We developed EDIT-101, a candidate genome-editing therapeutic, to remove the aberrant splice do...
Low vision in children can be accompanied by pallor of the optic disc with little or no characteristic morphologic changes of the retina. A variety of diseases can be the underlying cause, including h...
A rare degenerative inherited eye disease that appears at birth or in the first few months of life that results in a loss of vision. Not to be confused with LEBER HEREDITARY OPTIC NEUROPATHY, the disease is thought to be caused by abnormal development of PHOTORECEPTOR CELLS in the RETINA, or by the extremely premature degeneration of retinal cells.
Hereditary conditions that feature progressive visual loss in association with optic atrophy. Relatively common forms include autosomal dominant optic atrophy (OPTIC ATROPHY, AUTOSOMAL DOMINANT) and Leber hereditary optic atrophy (OPTIC ATROPHY, HEREDITARY, LEBER).
Blood clot formation in any part of the CAROTID ARTERIES. This may produce CAROTID STENOSIS or occlusion of the vessel, leading to TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK; CEREBRAL INFARCTION; or AMAUROSIS FUGAX.
Transient complete or partial monocular blindness due to retinal ischemia. This may be caused by emboli from the CAROTID ARTERY (usually in association with CAROTID STENOSIS) and other locations that enter the central RETINAL ARTERY. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p245)
Congenital structural deformities of the upper and lower extremities collectively or unspecified.
