Focused on bringing the life-changing power of genetic medicine – to reverse or prevent blindness
ATSENA THERAPEUTICS is a clinical-stage gene therapy company focused on bringing the life-changing power of genetic medicine to reverse or prevent blindness.
The company has an ongoing Phase I/II clinical trial evaluating a potential therapy for one of the most common causes of blindness in children. Its pipeline of clinical and preclinical assets is powered by adeno-associated virus (AAV) technology tailored to overcome the hurdles presented by inherited retinal disease, and its approach is guided by the specific needs of each patient condition.
Founded by ocular gene therapy pioneers Dr. Shannon Boye and Sanford Boye of the University of Florida, Atsena is based in North Carolina’s Research Triangle, an environment rich in gene therapy expertise.
