Paris, France, June 16, 2022, 7:30 am CEST – GenSight Biologics (Euronext: SIGHT, ISIN: FR0013183985, PEA-PME eligible), a biopharma Company focused on developing and commercializing innovative gene therapies for retinal neurodegenerative diseases and central nervous system disorders, today announced that it will participate to the EUNOS 2022 meeting, which is taking place on June 20-23 in Birmingham, United Kingdom. The conference is the most important conference in Europe for neuro-ophthalmologists and provides GenSight the opportunity to discuss its clinical data and recent developments with the neuro-ophthalmology community. The Company is a sponsor of EUNOS and will have a booth on site.
Patrick Yu-Wai-Man, MD, PhD, Professor of Ophthalmology and Honorary Consultant Neuro-ophthalmologist at the University of Cambridge, Moorfields Eye Hospital, and the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology, United Kingdom, will present on two topics relevant to Leber Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (LHON). He will first present data from GenSight’s Phase III REFLECT trial and discuss the efficacy of the Company’s bilateral treatment approach. He will also discuss the future of LHON treatment.
“The long-term follow-up data of patients in the REFLECT trial illustrate the sustained effect of the treatment and the clear impact on visual acuity for patients affected with LHON”, he said. “The data will be of particular interest to physicians seeking an effective treatment for this blinding mitochondrial disorder.”
