The EAP applies to patients not eligible to ongoing GS010 clinical trials.
- Presence of documented G11778A ND4 LHON-causing mutation
- Signature of informed consent and assent from the parent/guardian and the patient.
Contraindications to GS010 product or IVT procedures are to be checked prior to consent

interfere with visual or ocular assessments, including SD-OCT, during the study
- Presence of known/documented mutations, other than the G11778A ND4 LHON-causing
mutation, which are known to cause pathology of the optic nerve, retina or afferent
