CRISPR Therapeutics (NASDAQ:CRSP) and Vertex Pharmaceuticals Incorporated (NASDAQ:VRTX) today announced that new data from two ongoing Phase 1/2 clinical trials of the CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing therapy CTX001 in severe hemoglobinopathies have been accepted for an oral presentation at the EHA Congress, which will take place virtually from June 11-14, 2020.
An abstract posted online today includes 12 months of follow-up data for the first patient treated in the ongoing Phase 1/2 CLIMB-111 trial in transfusion-dependent beta thalassemia (TDT) and 6 months of follow-up data for the first patient treated in the ongoing Phase 1/2 CLIMB-121 trial in severe sickle cell disease (SCD). Updated data will be presented at EHA, including longer duration follow-up data for the first two patients treated in these trials and initial data for the second patient treated in the CLIMB-111 trial.
The accepted abstract is now available on the EHA conference website: https://ehaweb.org/congress/eha25/key-information-2/.
