Safety and effect on rod function of ACU-4429, a novel small-molecule visual cycle modulator.
Overall, these interim data show that subjects receiving ACU-4429 had a dose-dependent response and that rod visual cycle was modulated, as measured by ERG, for doses up to 10mg.
ACU-4429 utilizes Acucela's proprietary visual cycle modulation (VCM) technology, and is designed to prevent or inhibit the generation of toxic by-products of the visual cycle that can lead to degenerative eye conditions like dry AMD.
The paper, titled "Safety and effect on rod function of ACU-4429, a novel small-molecule visual cycle modulator" is available in the online publication of Retina at http://journals.
In preclinical and clinical studies, Acucela's novel proprietary visual cycle modulators have demonstrated ability to slow the visual cycle in multiple eye diseases, including AMD, retinopathy of prematurity, Stargardt disease and diabetic retinopathy.
These findings are key for illustrating the effect visual cycle modulation can have on the eye and blinding eye diseases," stated Dr.
