Wednesday, May 8, 2024

TARRYTOWN, N.Y., May 08, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: REGN) today announced that the investigational gene therapy DB-OTO improved hearing to normal levels in one child (dosed at 11 months of age) within 24 weeks, and initial hearing improvements were observed in a second child (dosed at 4 years of age) at a 6-week assessment. Both children were born with profound genetic deafness due to variants of the otoferlin gene, and the child dosed at 11 months of age is one of the youngest in the world to receive a gene therapy for genetic deafness. The results are from the ongoing Phase 1/2 CHORD trial, which is currently enrolling infants and children and were detailed during an oral presentation at the American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ASGCT) annual conference.

Key Points: 
  • The surgical procedure leverages the same approach used for cochlear implants, which is amenable for use in young infants.
  • Hearing improvements were assessed by pure tone audiometry (PTA) and auditory brainstem response (ABR).
  • At baseline, both participants had no behavioral (PTA) or electrophysiological (ABR) responses at maximum sound levels (≥100 dB).
  • The potential use of DB-OTO for otoferlin-related hearing loss is currently under clinical investigation, and its safety and efficacy have not been evaluated by any regulatory authority.
