Sangamo Biosciences, Inc. Research Report
On December 10, 2013, Sangamo Biosciences, Inc. (Sangamo) announced new pre-clinical data that demonstrated therapeutic levels of gene modification in non-human primates (NHPs) from its In Vivo Protein Replacement Platform. The Company reported that data were presented at the 55th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology. "These data provide proof of concept for this broadly applicable genome editing strategy by demonstrating that our process is scalable to large animals and by validating the use of the albumin safe harbor as a site for expression of therapeutic proteins," said Philip Gregory, D. Phil., Vice President of Research and Chief Scientific Officer at Sangamo. "We have further optimized Sangamo's ZFN system and demonstrated that a single systemic treatment enables stable liver-specific production of replacement protein. Early data in primates suggest that we can achieve circulating levels of protein above the threshold for therapeutic effect, which we believe are sufficient for the correction of a range of monogenic diseases. Our data demonstrate expression of replacement enzymes for multiple different proteins, including those deficient in lysosomal storage disorders, which serves to demonstrate the potential of this approach for a broad range of other monogenic diseases."
