Investment summary

ReNeuron develops human retinal progenitor cell therapy (hRPC) for retinitis pigmentosa (RP). Phase IIa data at a 1m dose shows a stable one-year average gain in visual acuity. A nine-patient continuation Phase IIa study is underway at a 2m cell dose. Following a short safety halt in June after an eye infection, ReNeuron may announce some three-month data by late Q421. The company had £22.2m cash at 31 March 2021. A 100-patient pivotal study is being planned to start in H222 possibly linked to a partnering deal. Catherine Isted will join the board as CFO from 11 October.

Industry outlook

hRPC cell therapy could potentially treat any RP patient, giving a big potential commercial advantage; gene therapies treat specific mutations. The exosome platform has third-party commercial collaborators. ReNeuron’s exosomes bind to target receptors in the brain to deliver siRNA and has a new peptide targeting technology. The clinical cell platform for diabetes looks promising.
