Gene Therapy Clinical Study in Adult PKU
A Phase 1/2 Open-Label, Randomized, Concurrently-Controlled, Dose Escalation Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of HMI-102 in Adult PKU Subjects With PAH Deficiency

  • Study Participants

This is a Phase 1/2, open-label, randomized, concurrently-controlled, dose escalation study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of HMI-102 in adult PKU subjects with PAH deficiency. Participants will receive a single administration of HMI-102 and will be followed for safety and efficacy for 1 year.
Part 1 of this study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of HMI-102 gene therapy in adult subjects with PKU due to PAH deficiency. Subjects will receive a single dose of HMI-102 administered intravenously. Up to 3 dose levels of HMI-102 may be investigated in this study. At a given dose level, a minimum of 2 subjects will be enrolled and dosed. Dosing of the first two subjects will be staggered. Following evaluation of data from the first 2 subjects in a cohort, a decision can be made to either escalate to the next dose level or expand the cohort at the selected dose level. Additional doses may be added by HMI to investigate intermediate or higher doses.

In Part 2 dose expansion, evaluation of up to 2 dose levels is planned. Subjects will be randomized to receive HMI-102 or a concurrent delayed treatment control arm. Subjects in the delayed treatment control will be eligible to receive HMI-102 after 28 weeks.

Genetic HMI-102

HMI-102 is an AAVHSC15 vector containing a functional copy of the human PAH gene

Genetic HMI-102

Control subjects will generally have the same assessments as treated subjects. Control subjects will undergo pre-baseline procedures to confirm that they are eligible to receive treatment with HMI-102. Once eligible control subjects are dosed with HMI-102, they will initiate the same post-dose procedures as subjects who received HMI-102.
