The First Step is a CONFIRMED GENETIC DIAGNOSIS
Confirming mutations in both copies of the RPE65 gene is the first step to determine if a patient may be appropriate for treatment with LUXTURNA. Your healthcare professional will also determine if you have enough remaining cells in your retina.
If you do not have a healthcare professional, please use the Specialist Locator to find a retinal specialist in your area of the United States who can discuss genetic testing for RPE65 mutations and may help determine if LUXTURNA may be right for you.
Spark® Therapeutics is committed to providing access to an accurate genetic diagnosis and is offering a free* RPE65 genetic test, which can be ordered by your healthcare professional. Please read below to find out more about eligibility for this test. Steps for each patient will differ depending on where you are in your treatment journey.
If you have not yet been genetically tested for mutations in both copies of the RPE65 gene, our simple screener may help determine if you should ask your healthcare professional about a free* RPE65 genetic test available from Spark Therapeutics.
