  Purpose

The purpose of this study is:

  • to evaluate the safety of oral QLT091001
  • to evaluate whether 7-day treatment with oral QLT091001 can improve visual function in subjects with LCA or RP due to RPE65 or LRAT mutations
  • to evaluate duration of visual function improvement (if observed)
