The Macular Telangiectasia Project (MacTel) is an international clinical trials group to support innovative trials for macular telangiectasia. MacTel is composed of over 20 Clinical Trials Sites worldwide. Retinal telangiectasis refers to a group of uncommon, idiopathic, retinal vascular abnormalities affecting the retinal capillaries in which irregular capillary dilation and incompetence occur in the macula with or without vascular changes in the retinal periphery. The condition is characterized by slow vision loss beginning at adulthood that becomes progressively debilitating, but rarely leads to total blindness. The pathogenesis of macular telangiectasia is unknown. At present, there are no known treatments to prevent, ameliorate, or slow the progression of the disease.
Emmes serves as the Coordinating Center for the Natural History Study, the Extension of the Phase I and Phase II trials, and the Phase III international multi-center clinical trial to assess the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of Ciliary Neurotrophic Factor (CTNF), a class of molecules that has been demonstrated to slow the loss of photoreceptor cells during retinal degeneration. These studies involve implanting a capsule into the vitreous of the eye that secretes the CNTF, thus making the molecules available to the photoreceptor cells of the retina.
