GAINESVILLE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AGTC, a privately-held, clinical stage biotechnology company, announced today that the company has been awarded an additional $657,699 in funding under the Small Business Technology Transfer Program of the National Eye Institute (NEI), a division of the National Institutes of Health. This grant will supplement ongoing work under the $8.4 million grant AGTC was awarded by the NEI earlier this year and will support expansion of the company’s preclinical development work for AAV-CNGB3, a gene therapy treatment for achromatopsia. Funds will be used to conduct additional studies in an animal model of the disease using the species-specific version of the CNGB3 gene, which is expected to provide safety and efficacy results that better predict responses in human clinical trials.
