XLRP is a rare orphan disease that occurs due to a congenital genetic defect.
The company said XLRP is an inherited condition that causes progressive vision loss, beginning with night blindness in young boys followed by progressive constriction of the field of vision.
According to the company, the preclinical data indicate that treatment with a gene therapy product slowed the loss of visual function in canines with XLRP caused by mutations in the RPGR gene.
