The Safety and Tolerability of Sub-retinal Transplantation of SCNT-hES-RPE Cells in Patients With Advanced Dry AMD

General Information

Summary To evaluate the safety and tolerability of human somatic cell nuclear transfer embryonic stem cell derived retinal pigmented epithelial(SCNT-hES-RPE) cellular therapy in patients with advanced dry AMD.
Description To evaluate the safety and tolerability of the SCNT-hES-RPEs, to assess the number of SCNT-hES-RPE cells to be transplanted in future studies and to evaluate on an exploratory basis potential efficacy endpoints to be used in future studies of SCNT-hES-RPE cellular therapy.
Clinical trials phase Phase 1
Start date (estimated) 2015-05-01
End date (estimated) 2019-04-30
Clinical feature
Label atrophic macular degeneration
Description Dry AMD is most common type of macular degeneration and affects 90% of the people who have the condition. In the dry form, there is a breakdown or thinning of the layer of retinal pigment epithelial cells (RPE) in the macula. No medical or surgical treatment is available for this condition.
