Ataxia-telangiectasia (AT) is a rare, devastating neurodegenerative disease presenting with early-onset ataxia, oculocutaneous telangiectasia, immunodeficiency, radiosensitivity, and proneness to cancer. In a previous phase 2 study, we showed that 6 monthly infusions of autologous erythrocytes loaded with dexamethasone (EryDex; EryDel, Urbino, Italy) were effective in improving neurologic impairment in young patients with AT. The present article reports the results of the extension of this study for an additional 24-month period.

Abstract

Ataxia-telangiectasia (AT) is a rare, devastating neurodegenerative disease presenting with early-onset ataxia, oculocutaneous telangiectasia, immunodeficiency, radiosensitivity, and proneness to cancer. In a previous phase 2 study, we showed that 6 monthly infusions of autologous erythrocytes loaded with dexamethasone (EryDex; EryDel, Urbino, Italy) were effective in improving neurologic impairment in young patients with AT. The present article reports the results of the extension of this study for an additional 24-month period.
