Leber congenital amaurosis Understanding

Leber congenital amaurosis: Overview


Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA) is a rare genetic eye disorder. Affected infants are often blind at birth. Other symptoms may include crossed eyes (strabismus); rapid, involuntary eye movements (nystagmus); unusual sensitivity to light (photophobia); clouding of the lenses of the eyes (cataracts); and/or a cone shape to the front of the eye (keratoconus). LCA is usually inherited as an autosomal recessive genetic condition. Children born with LCA have light-gathering cells (rods and cones) of the retina that do not function properly. Absence or reduction of the electrical activity of the retina is always observed and is necessary for the diagnosis of LCA. A decrease in visual responsiveness at birth is the first sign of the disease. Often the child will poke, press and rub the eyes to stimulate the retina to produce light (Franceschetti's oculo-digital sign).This activity may cause the eyes to become sunken or deep set (enophthalmos). LCA is a monogenic disease and at least 27 genes are implicated. Changes (mutations) in these genes can account for about 80-90% of diagnosed cases of LCA. The genes responsible for the remaining 10-20% of diagnoses are not known. LCA is usually inherited as an autosomal recessive genetic condition.

"Leber congenital amaurosis - Pipeline Insight, 2021" report by the publisher outlays comprehensive insights of present scenario and growth prospects across the indication.

Leber congenital amaurosis Emerging Drugs Chapters


This segment of the Leber congenital amaurosis report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

Leber congenital amaurosis Emerging Drugs


Sepofarsen (QR-110): ProQR Therapeutics


Sepofarsen (QR-110) is an RNA therapy that aims to restore vision in Leber congenital amaurosis 10 (LCA10) due to the most common p.Cys998X mutation in the CEP290 gene. Sepofarsen aims to restore vision loss in people with Leber congenital amaurosis due to a specific mutation in the CEP290 gene. This p.Cys998X mutation, also known as c.2991+1655A>G, is the most common mutation causing LCA10. The p.Cys998X mutation causes a mistake in the CEP290 RNA and therefore a process called splicing is not done properly. The cell can therefore not use the RNA to produce a working CEP290 protein that is essential for vision. Currently, it is in Phase II/III stage of development to treat Leber congenital amaurosis.

EDIT-101: Editas Medicine, Inc.


The company's approach to Leber Congenital Amaurosis 10 (LCA10) is to target a disease-causing mutation in the CEP290 gene that causes degeneration in ocular photoreceptor cells - cells critical for experiencing normal vision. They have developed an experimental CRISPR medicine called EDIT-101 designed to remove the CEP290 mutation. This approach may restore normal protein expression, photoreceptor function, and ultimately, vision.
