Alkeus Pharmaceuticals Presents Positive Interim Data Showing Gildeuretinol Halted Stargardt Disease Progression

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Alkeus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. today announced positive interim data showing gildeuretinol halted Stargardt disease progression for up to six years. In its ongoing TEASE-3 clinical trial in early-stage Stargardt disease, the first three teenage patients enrolled in TEASE-3 and treated with oral gildeuretinol acetate remained asymptomatic and free of disease progression for their treatment duration ranging between two (one patient) and six years (two patients). In the absence of treatment, the patients were projected to begin experiencing vision loss within two years, following the same disease trajectory as that of their respective older siblings with identical genetic mutations who had not been treated with gildeuretinol.
