Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy Understanding

Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy: Overview

Leber hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON) is often characterized by bilateral, painless subacute loss of central vision during young adult life. In most cases, symptoms begin with one eye first, followed a few weeks later by visual failure in the other eye. Extremely rarely there may be neurologic abnormalities, such as peripheral neuropathy, postural tremor, nonspecific myopathy, and movement disorders. LHON is caused by mutations in mitochondrial DNA and it is strictly transmitted by maternal inheritance.

Individuals with LHON typically display symptoms in their young adult years. If vision is lost, then it usually occurs before 40 years of age. LHON is caused by genetic mutations in the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). Some mothers with a LHON gene mutation do not show symptoms, but family history often reveals female relatives with visual loss at an early age.

Affected individuals should receive supportive management and treatment through the usage of visual aids, occupational rehabilitation, and local social services. Small studies have shown that therapies involving ubiquinone and idebenone may provide possible benefits during the acute and chronic phases of the disorder. Affected individuals should avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, which generate reactive oxygen species (ROS) producing mitochondrial impairments.

Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy Emerging Drugs

GS 010: GenSight Biologics

LUMEVOQ (GS010; lenadogene nolparvovec) targets Leber Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (LHON) by leveraging a mitochondrial targeting sequence (MTS) proprietary technology platform, arising from research conducted at the Institut de la Vision in Paris, which, when associated with the gene of interest, allows the platform to specifically address defects inside the mitochondria using an AAV vector (Adeno-Associated Virus). The gene of interest is transferred into the cell to be expressed and produces the functional protein, which will then be shuttled to the mitochondria through specific nucleotidic sequences in order to restore the missing or deficient mitochondrial function. “LUMEVOQ” was accepted as the invented name for GS010 (lenadogene nolparvovec) by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) in October 2018. LUMEVOQ is currently in the review phase of its registration process in Europe, and in Phase III to move forward to a BLA filing in the U.S.

NFS-02: Neurophth Therapeutics

Neurophth is currently developing NFS-01 (NR082, rAAV-ND4) to treat LHON diseases caused by G11778A (ND4) site mutation and G3460A (ND1) site mutation, respectively. The mechanism of action is to leverage gene therapy strategy and use recombinant adeno-associated virus as the vector to deliver the correct genes to the patients' damaged optic ganglion cells through introvitinreous injection, thus repair the mitochondrial biological respiratory chain, and restore the vitality and visual function of optic ganglion cells.

NFS-01 (NR082, rAAV-ND4) was designated as orphan drug by the U.S. FDA in September 2020, which laid a foundation for accelerating international development of this product.
