Brief Summary:
This study evaluates the safety and potential activity of a single dose of live human retinal progenitor cells (jCell) administered to adults with retinitis pigmentosa. Four different dose levels of cells will be assessed in each of two groups of patients.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) Biological: human retinal progenitor cells Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

The primary purpose of this study is to test the safety and tolerability of the administration of a single dose of jCell to adults with retinitis pigmentosa.

The goal of jCell therapy is to preserve vision by intervening in the disease at a time when host photoreceptors can be protected and potentially reactivated.

Human allogeneic retinal progenitor cells will be injected into adults with advanced RP to see if the procedure is safe, if the cells survive, and whether they have any impact on the visual status of the patients.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Treated subjects
human retinal progenitor cells
Biological: human retinal progenitor cells
single intravitreal injection of 0.5 - 3.0 million human retinal progenitor cells (hRPC)
Other Name: jCell




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Subjects With Adverse Events as a Measure of Safety and Tolerability [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    proportion of subjects with treatment emergent adverse events (TEAE), related TEAE and severe TEAE


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in Mean Best Corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA) [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    change in mean best corrected visual acuity in test eye versus untreated eye; BCVA is measured using an eye chart and is reported as the number of letters read correctly (ranging from 0 to 100 letters) in the study eye. The lower the number of letters read correctly on the eye chart, the worse the vision (or visual acuity). A positive change from baseline indicates an improvement and a negative change from baseline indicates a worsening. Change between baseline and month 12 is reported.
