    AGTC Reports Process Development Advances for Manufacturing its XLRP Gene Therapy Candidate in Two Abstracts at ASGCT

    -Improved process and validated expression assay support clinical phase product release for the Vista Phase 2/3 XLRP clinical trial- GAINESVILLE, Fla. and CAMBRIDGE, Mass., May 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Applied Genetic Technologies Corporation (Nasdaq: AGTC), a biotechnology company conducting human clinical trials of adeno-associated virus (AAV)-based gene therapies for the treatment of rare diseases, today announced the presentation of new data from two studies related to improvements in the manufacturing process for rAAV2tYF-GRK1-RPGRco, the Company’s gene therapy candidate for the treatment of X-linked retinitis pigmentosa (XLRP). The data are being presented today in two abstracts at the American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy (ASGCT) 24th Annual Meeting, which is being held virtually May 11-14, 2021. One abstract describes improvements to the Company’s process for manufacturing its XLRP candidate (Abstract 806) and the other describes the development and validation of a novel expression assay that meets International Council for Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Pharmaceuticals for Human Use (ICH) guidelines and is being applied to support clinical phase product release for AGTC’s XLRP clinical Phase 2/3 study, Vista (Abstract 884). “In parallel with the progress we have made in the clinical development of our XLRP candidate, we have continued to invest in and improve our XLRP manufacturing capabilities. The advances reported today will support manufacturing for the Phase 2/3 Vista trial as we work toward finalizing a commercial manufacturing process that could meet potential market demand,” said Sue Washer, President and CEO of AGTC. “We expect to report additional clinical and manufacturing advances for our XLRP candidate, which has best-in-class potential, in the months ahead as we continue to drive this program toward commercialization." Subretinal Rd9 Mouse Study to Compare RPGR Expression Pre- and Post-Manufacturing Process Improvements (Abstract 806)AGTC has made several improvements to the manufacturing process for its XLRP candidate. These include substituting an anion exchange column for the original cation exchange column, which enables significant improvement in the full/empty capsid ratio, as well as improvements designed to optimize the clarification and affinity steps. This abstract describes a study designed to compare transgene expression between vectors produced with the original and improved processes. Study results show that these changes resulted in an improved full/empty capsid ratio from 30% to greater than 80%, reduced process residuals (Host cell DNA and Protein), and an improved ratio of infectious particles (< 4.0 total particles/infectious particle). Immunohistochemistry staining of RPGR expression was scored as equivalent in retinal area (most showed >50% photoreceptor positivity) and intensity of staining (2.2-2.8 on a 5-point scale) following subretinal injection of XLRP vectors produced under each process into the eyes of Rd9 mutant mice, an animal model for XLRP due to mutations in the RPGR gene. RPGR expression by western blotting was also similar following administration of vector from each process. These findings support that AGTC’s novel, more efficient production method yields similar, high-quality XLRP gene therapy vectors for use in future clinical trials. Expression Assay Development for rAAV Vector Encoding Retinitis Pigmentosa GTPase Regulator (RPGRco) (Abstract 884)Potency tests, which are critical for measuring rAAV product attributes such as quality, identity, purity, strength, and stability, are multifaceted and require continuous efforts throughout preclinical and clinical phases. This abstract reports the development and validation of a sensitive and specific in vitro cell-based assay to measure hRPGRco (codon optimized human retinitis pigmentosa GTPase regulator) mRNA expression from AGTC’s XLRP vector, rAAV2tYF-GRK1-RPGRco. Measurement of hRPGRco mRNA expression after transduction with the Company’s AAV-RPGR vector was achieved in three phases: cell transduction, cell harvesting/RNA isolation, and detection via gene-specific real-time qualitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR). Study data demonstrate successful optimization of this gene expression assay, resulting in qualification for use as a functional potency assay according to ICH guidelines. This qualification evaluated the assay’s sensitivity, specificity, accuracy, precision, RT-qPCR linearity, and total assay linearity. AGTC is using this assay to support release of XLRP vector material for the Phase 2/3 Vista trial. Both abstracts are being presented as digital posters today at 8:00 AM EDT.

Actual results could differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements, due to a number of important factors. Risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially include, among others: gene therapy is still novel with only a few approved treatments so far; AGTC cannot predict when or if it will obtain regulatory approval to commercialize a product candidate or receive reasonable reimbursement; uncertainty inherent in clinical trials and the regulatory review process; risks and uncertainties associated with drug development and commercialization; the direct and indirect impacts of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic on our business, results of operations, and financial condition; factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements are set forth under the heading "Risk Factors" in our most recent annual or quarterly report and in other reports we have filed with the SEC.

    Applied Genetic's XLRP Gene Therapy Shows Improved, Durable Response In Retinal Sensitivity

    Applied Genetic Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: AGTC) has announced additional data from the ongoing X-linked retinitis pigmentosa (XLRP) gene therapy Phase 1/2 trial, including 12-month data from Groups 5 & 6 and 24-month data from two of three Group 4 patients. Groups 5 and 6 had a 50% response rate among patients who met the inclusion criteria for the Skyline and Vista trials. Consistent with previously reported 6-month data from Groups 2, 4, 5, and 6, assessment of Best Corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA) in these groups at 12 months continues to provide supportive evidence of improved visual acuity. The difference between treated and untreated eyes is statistically significant. Data from a subset of Group 4 patients available for analysis at 24 months also provides preliminary evidence of continued durable responses and demonstrates a favorable safety profile. Two patients are still responders at Month 24. According to the company, this is the first XLRP gene therapy clinical trial to demonstrate continued durability of response at this time point. Data from all 28 patients across six dose groups continue to demonstrate a favorable safety profile with no dose-limiting inflammatory responses observed. This safety profile, which has shown no clinically significant inflammation not manageable with steroids, continues to be observed out to 24 months. The company expects to present 12-month trial results from the ongoing Phase 1/2 clinical trial at the American Academy of Ophthalmology Annual Meeting in November 2021. AGTC will host a conference call and webcast today at 8:00 am ET Price Action: AGTC shares are up 5.96% at $4.09 during the premarket session on the last check Thursday.
