Bluebird Bio’s investigational gene therapy LentiGlobin safely prevents serious vaso-occlusive crises and acute chest syndrome in adolescents and adults with severe sickle cell disease (SCD), according to recent data from a Phase 1/2 clinical trial.
The findings, “Outcomes in patients treated with LentiGlobin for sickle cell disease (SCD) gene therapy: updated results from the Phase 1/2 HGB-206 group C study,” were recently presented at the virtual 25th European Hematology Association (EHA) Annual Congress.
“The promising results of this study, which show patients have an almost complete elimination of VOCs [vaso-occlusive crises] and ACS [acute chest syndrome], suggest LentiGlobin … has real potential to provide a significant impact for people living with sickle cell disease,” Julie Kanter, MD, said in a press release.
