Nanoscope Therapeutics is a late-stage clinical company developing an optogenetic platform to restore sight in patients suffering from inherited retinal disease and dry-AMD using ambient light-sensitive molecules and light-assisted gene therapy.

Nanoscope's lead asset, MCO-010, is currently in a pivotal trial in RP (retinitis pigmentosa) with data expected in Q1 2023. Additionally, a Ph2 trial evaluating MCO-010 in Stargardt macular degeneration is also being initiated.  MCO-020, Nanoscope's follow-on asset for geographic atrophy in late-stage AMD patients, is currently in IND enabling studies.

Nanoscope utilizes ambient light-sensitive molecules to re-sensitize the retina toward low light levels. The Company's light-assisted gene therapy is highly targeted to geographic atrophies without perturbing the intact retina circuitry.
