Can we walk through the primary endpoint of bilateral multi-luminance mobility testing (MLMT) from the Lancet study? How well established is this endpoint and how consistent is the decline among untreated patients? 

Added By: joe_mccann

LUXTURNA showed a marked difference compared to control participants across the first two secondary endpoints: full-field light sensitivity threshold (FST) testing (p<0.001) and the mobility test change score for the first injected eye (p=0.001). A third secondary endpoint, the change in visual acuity (VA) averaged over both eyes, was not statistically significant between intervention and control participants (p=0.17).

Let's discuss the 3 endpoints and how concerning it is the drug didn't hit a statistically significant benefit on the VA endpoint.
