  1. The purpose of this study is to is to evaluate the occurrence of late onset (i.e., greater than 5 years after treatment) safety events of special interest in participants who have received sub-retinal transplant of human embryonic stem cell derived - retinal pigment epithelial (hESC-RPE) cells in an AIRM-sponsored clinical trial. The events of special interest are adverse events (AEs) that are presumed to have a potential causal relationship to the hESC-RPE cells.

  2. The purpose of this study during the Dose Escalation stage is to assess the safety and tolerability of 3 ascending doses of ASP7317 in participants with age-related macular degeneration (AMD), of which one dose will be selected for evaluation of efficacy and safety during the Proof of Concept (PoC) stage of the study. The primary purpose of the study during the PoC stage is to assess the safety, tolerability and superiority of ASP7317 at low cells/dose and the selected dose compared to untreated control and ASP7317 low cells/dose versus the selected dose in best corrected visual acuity (BCVA). This study will also assess safety by incidence of graft failure or rejection with a 13-week regimen of immunosuppression therapy. Efficacy will also be assessed by the differences among ASP7317 at low cells/dose, ASP7317 at the selected dose and the untreated control group in other functional and structural parameters and patient reported outcomes during the PoC stage. During the Extension stage this study will assess the safety and tolerability of ASP7317 at the most efficacious dose from PoC in participants randomized to the untreated control group.

  31. Pathologic myopia is a major cause of legal blindness worldwide. In myopic macular degeneration (MMD), there is degeneration of the retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) layer, and associated photoreceptors, resulting in vision loss. There is currently no standard treatment for MMD. Transplantation of intact sheets of RPE and suspensions of isolated individual RPE cells as well as autologous translocation of RPE cells has been attempted as treatment for AMD. Human photoreceptors are comprised of two cell types-rods and cones. Both have a close relationship with the outermost retinal cells, the retinal pigmented epithelium (RPE). The RPE is located between the choroid and the photoreceptors. The RPE maintains photoreceptor function by recycling photopigments,delivering, metabolizing and storing vitamin A, phagocytosing rod photoreceptor outer segments, transporting iron and small molecules between retina and choroid, maintaining Bruch's membrane and absorbing stray light to allow better image resolution. In essence, the RPE layer is critical to the function and health of photoreceptors and the retina as a whole. Human PRE (hRPE) transplantation may be a viable option for treatment of degenerative diseases of the retina. MA09-hRPE cells are fully differentiated human RPE cells derived from embryonic stem cells. Transplanted hRPE cells prepared by Advanced Cell Technology have been studied in rodent models of macular degenerative disease. The data suggests that the subretinal injection of ACT's hRPE cell products rescues, or at least delays, loss of visual function in two animal models of retinal degenerative diseases. The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of MA09-hRPE cellular therapy in patients with Myopic Macular Degeneration (MMD). Another objective is to evaluate potential efficacy endpoints to be used in future studies of RPE cellular therapy.
