Retinitis Pigmentosa Pipeline Insight
DelveInsight’s, “Retinitis pigmentosa (RP)-Pipeline Insight, 2020,” report provides comprehensive insights about 25+ companies and 30+ pipeline drugs in Retinitis pigmentosa pipeline landscape. It covers the pipeline drug profiles, including clinical and nonclinical stage products. It also covers the therapeutics assessment by product type, stage, route of administration, and molecule type. It further highlights the inactive pipeline products in this space.
Retinitis pigmentosa Understanding
Retinitis pigmentosa: Overview
Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) comprises a large group of inherited vision disorders that cause progressive degeneration of the retina, the light sensitive membrane that coats the inside of the eyes. Peripheral (or side) vision gradually decreases and eventually is lost in most cases. Central vision is usually preserved until late in these conditions.
RP usually begins as night or dim light visual impairment (that is, difficulty in seeing in dimly lit environments or at dusk, or adapting to, or recovering function in, dim light after being in bright light for any length of time). Symptoms are more often noticed between the age 10 and 40, but earlier and later onset forms of RP exist. Characteristically, symptoms develop gradually over time. The sudden onset of these same symptoms should point to a different cause, such as an autoimmune process. Older people with sudden onset of these symptoms are especially at risk for experiencing them as the result of having cancer (so called paraneoplastic retinopathy, which often co-occurs with an optic nerve involvement as well).
RP is diagnosed by electroretinography (ERG) showing progressive loss in photoreceptor function, visual field testing, and retinal imaging [mainly by optical coherence tomography (OCT) and fundus auto-fluorescence (FAF) that show detailed microanatomical features that cannot be resolved by naked eye]. Molecular genetic testing for mutations in many of the genes associated with RP is available to confirm the diagnosis.
There is no single treatment for retinitis pigmentosa because there are over 100 genes that cause it. There is treatment for retinitis pigmentosa due to the RPE65 genetic defect. Long-term supplementation with these regimens of vitamin A palmitate appears to be safe, although older patients should be aware that there is some evidence (although not univocal) that vitamin A supplements may promote further bone density loss, worsen osteoporosis and, therefore, increase the risk of hip fractures.
Retinitis pigmentosa Emerging Drugs Chapters
This segment of the Retinitis pigmentosa 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.
Retinitis pigmentosa Emerging Drugs
- AAV8-RPGR: Nightstar Therapeutics/Biogen
Nightstar Therapeutics (now Biogen Inc.) initiated the development of an AAV-based Adeno-Associated Viral Vector Encoding Retinitis Pigmentosa GTPase Regulator gene therapy (AAV8-RPGR) in phase II/III for X-linked Retinitis Pigmentosa (XLRP). After the acquisition by Biogen, AAV8-RPGR is now known as BIIB112.
- Risuteganib: Allegro Ophthalmics
Risuteganib (ALG 1001) is a first-in-class oligopeptide therapy, being developed by Allegro Ophthalmics for the treatment of Retinitis Pigmentosa. Risuteganib regulates mitochondrial dysfunction and downregulates oxidative stress response to restore retinal homeostasis.
- NPI 001: Nacuity Pharmaceuticals
NPI-001, a GMP-grade of N-acetylcysteine amide (NACA), is an experimental antioxidant drug for the treatment of RP. The drug is in phase II stage of development.
