Retinitis Pigmentosa clinical trials at UC Health
7 in progress, 2 open to eligible people

  • Retinal Imaging in Patients With Inherited Retinal Degenerations

    open to eligible people ages 13 years and up

    The purpose of this study is to determine whether the structure and function of the human retina can be studied with high resolution in patients with inherited retinal degenerations using the Adaptive Optics Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscope (AOSLO).

  • RST-001 Phase I/II Trial for Advanced Retinitis Pigmentosa

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Currently enrolling a total of 12 patients for Phase 2a of the study: 6 patients must have VA of no-better-than hand motion in the study eye, and 6 patients must have VA in the study eye to range from no-worse-than count fingers to 20/200 vision.

  • Clinical Trial of Autologous Intravitreal Bone-marrow CD34+ Stem Cells for Retinopathy

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    This pilot study is to determine whether it would be safe and feasible to inject CD34+ stem cells from bone marrow into the eye as treatment for patients who are irreversibly blind from various retinal conditions.

  • Rate of Progression in EYS Related Retinal Degeneration

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The overall goal of this project funded by the Foundation Fighting Blindness is to characterize the natural history of disease progression in patients with EYS mutations in order to accelerate the development of outcome measures for clinical trials.

  • Rate of Progression in USH2A-related Retinal Degeneration

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The overall goal of this project funded by the Foundation Fighting Blindness is to characterize the natural history of disease progression in patients with USH2A related retinal degeneration associated with congenital hearing loss (Usher syndrome type 2a) or non-syndromic retinitis pigmentosa (RP39).

  • Repository for Inherited Eye Diseases

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    This study will collect blood and DNA samples from patients with inherited eye diseases to be used in research to identify genetic factors responsible for these conditions. In recent years, nearly 500 genes that contribute to inherited eye diseases have been identified. Disease-causing mutations are associated with many eye diseases, including glaucoma, cataracts, strabismus, corneal dystrophies and a number of forms of retinal degenerations. As a result, gene-based therapies are being pursued to treat eye genetic diseases that were once considered untreatable. The National Ophthalmic Genotyping Network (eyeGENE ) is creating a national tissue repository to further advance genetic research on inherited eye disease, while at the same time providing clinically-useful information back to patients and physicians who request it.. Physicians in collaborating institutions will recruit patients to participate in the study. Patients will provide a blood sample and undergo a standard eye examination. The blood sample and clinical information will then be sent to the NEI for testing, processing and storing in the tissue repository. Patients are given the option to receive results back and/or to be re-contacted in the event of future clinical studies. Information supplied to the testing laboratories includes a unique identification number, the patient gender, and the patient date of birth. The stored samples will be made available to researchers along with information about the patient's disease, but without patient identifiers.

  • Retinal Imaging of Subjects Implanted With Ciliary Neurotrophic Factor (CNTF)-Releasing Encapsulated Cell Implant for Early-stage Retinitis Pigmentosa

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This clinical trial is a single-site, 30 patient study for participants who have early stage retinitis pigmentosa, or Usher syndrome (type 2 or 3). Funding Source - FDA OOPD and Foundation Fighting Blindness.
