It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our scientific Co-Founder Thierry Léveillard.
Thierry was instrumental in the creation of SparingVision. His life’s work has inspired us and contributed to who SparingVision is today and for that we are eternally grateful.
Our thoughts are with his family and his friends and we are determined that his legacy lives on through all of us at SparingVision.
Moving beyond single gene correction therapiesto deliver new treatments.
We are a clinical-stage genomic medicines company leading a step shift in how ocular diseases are treated. We are going beyond single gene correction therapies to deliver new treatments to patients affected by Inherited Retinal Diseases (IRDs), regardless of genetic cause.
Our goal is to harness the potential of gene therapy and genome editing to bring cutting-edge innovation into ocular disease drug discovery and development.
At the heart of this is a pipeline of mutation independent treatments for Inherited Retinal Diseases (IRD) such as Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP),the leading inherited cause of blindnesswhich affects 2 million people worldwide.
A group of IRDs which are a leading cause of blindness globally. Current monogenictreatment approaches are not applicable to all patients. With our approach we believe that we can bring meaningful differences to many of them.
Mutations in more than 70 genes
are known to cause RP
Forty thousand people
are affected by RP in France
Two million people are
affected by RP in the world
Combining 20+ years of world-leading ophthalmic research with a world class team of experts from across the international drug development spectrum. SparingVision has an unparalleled understanding of retinal disease and bringing novel treatments to patients.
