BEIJING & CAMBRIDGE, Mass.

EdiGene, Inc., which develops genome editing technologies into novel therapeutics for a broad range of diseases and into creative solutions to advance drug discovery, today announced presentation of preclinical data on ET-01, its leading therapeutic program for patients with β-Thalassemia Major, during the 61st American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting taking place in Orlando, FL on December 7-10th, 2019.

The presentation will highlight selected data from scaled-up manufacturing campaigns at clinical scale and IND-enabling preclinical studies of ET-01, in which autologous CD34+ cells are edited with high precision and efficiency, resulting in significantly higher fetal hemoglobin levels when differentiating into red blood cells.

“In China, patients with β-Thalassemia Major have much higher morbidity burden and shorter life expectancy compared to those in Western countries,” said Dong Wei, Ph.D., MBA, CEO of EdiGene. “We are very excited about the progress of our ET-01 program, and plan to work with Chinese regulatory authorities in the near future to advance the program to clinics.”

Details of the presentation are listed below:
