Purpose

This study will determine the effect of QPI-1007 on visual function in subjects with recent-onset NAION and assess the safety and tolerability of intravitreal injections of QPI-1007 in this population. This study will also evaluate the structural changes in the retina following administration of QPI-1007.

Inclusion Criteria

  • Positive diagnosis of first episode of NAION in the study eye with symptom onset within 14 days prior to planned study drug administration/sham procedure
  • Best corrected visual acuity score in the study eye is better than or equal to 15 letter score, measured using the ETDRS visual acuity protocol at Day 1 prior to study drug administration/sham procedure.

Detailed Description

This is a double masked, randomized, sham-controlled efficacy and safety study that will enroll approximately 800 subjects with recent-onset NAION. Subjects will be randomized into one of 3 groups in a 1:1:1 ratio, and assigned to receive QPI-1007 and/or a sham procedure. Subjects will have a two in three (66%) chance of receiving active treatment (no sham procedure) and a one in three (33%) chance of receiving sham procedure (no active treatment). Total study time involvement is approximately 12 months.
