bluebird bio, Inc. (NASDAQ:BLUE) announced today that data from its gene therapy programs for sickle cell disease (SCD), transfusion-dependent β-thalassemia (TDT) and its cell therapy program for relapsed and refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM) will be presented during the Virtual Edition of the 25th European Hematology Association (EHA25) Annual Congress.

New data from the company’s Phase 1/2 HGB-206 study of LentiGlobin™ gene therapy for SCD will be presented, including updated data from patients in Group C.

bluebird bio will also present data from its ongoing clinical studies of betibeglogene autotemcel (formerly LentiGlobin™ gene therapy for β-thalassemia), including the Phase 3 Northstar-2 (HGB-207) study in patients who do not have a β0/β0 genotype and the Phase 3 Northstar-3 (HGB-212) study in patients who have β0/β0, β0/β+IVS-I-110, or β+IVS-I-110/β+IVS-I-110 genotypes.

Data from studies of idecabtagene vicleucel (ide-cel; bb2121), the company’s anti-B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA) chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapy in development with Bristol Myers Squibb, will be presented, including an encore presentation of results from the pivotal Phase 2 KarMMa study.
