E.2 Objective of the trial
E.2.1Main objective of the trial
The primary objective of this study is to characterize the safety and tolerability of OAV101 intrathecal (IT) over a 52-week period in patients with SMA aged 2 to 12 years who have discontinued treatment with nusinersen (Spinraza®) or risdiplam (Evrysdi®).
E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
The secondary objective of this study is to assess the efficacy of OAV101 IT on motor function and caregiver impact over a 52-week period in patients with SMA aged 2 to 12 years who have discontinued treatment with nusinersen (Spinraza®) or risdiplam (Evrysdi®).
E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
E.3Principal inclusion criteria

● An active but untreated viral or bacterial infectious process at any time between Screening Visit 1 and administration of OAV101, or
● Any febrile illness within two weeks prior to Screening Visit 1 and up to administration of OAV101
● Requiring invasive ventilation, awake noninvasive ventilation for > 6 hours during a 24-hour period, noninvasive ventilation for >12 hours during a 24-hour period or requiring tracheostomy, at Screening and up to OAV101 administration
● Concomitant use of any of the following medication categories within 90 days prior to administration of OAV101
● Ongoing immunosuppressive therapy (e.g., corticosteroids, cyclosporine, tacrolimus, methotrexate, cyclophosphamide, intravenous immunoglobulin, rituximab), plasmapheresis, immunomodulators (e.g., adalimumab)
● History of hypersensitivity to any of the study treatments or its excipients or drugs of similar chemical classes
