About Nanoscope Therapeutics Inc.
Nanoscope Therapeutics is developing optogenetic therapies to give sight to millions of patients suffering from retinal degenerative diseases. Nanoscope’s lead product, MCO-010, is an investigational AAV gene therapy designed to restore functional vision to patients with severe vision loss due to retinal degeneration. In a Phase 1/2a open label trial of MCO-010 in patients with advanced RP (n=11), MCO-010 demonstrated a favorable safety profile and several patients experienced restoration of vision to a level sufficient to resume activities of daily living. A multicenter, randomized, double-masked, sham-controlled Phase 2b clinical trial of MCO-010 for treatment of RP (NCT04945772) is fully enrolled (N=27) and in follow-up. Primary data are expected in H1-2023. The company will begin Phase-2 clinical trials for Stargardt macular degeneration in Q2-2022. MCO therapy received orphan drug designations from the FDA for RP and Stargardt.
