Partnership to Ensure Supply of LentiGlobin, Potential Gene Therapy

Bluebird Bio extended a partnership with two divisions of Hitachi Chemical for the long-term development and manufacturing of LentiGlobin, its investigational gene therapy for sickle cell disease (SCD), and other potential and approved treatments.

The two subsidiaries — Hitachi Chemical Advanced Therapeutics Solutions (HCATS) and Apceth Biopharma — will be in charge of late-clinical development and manufacturing of LentiGlobin at facilities in Germany (Apceth) and the U.S. (HCATS).

“It is our honor to support bluebird bio in the manufacture of their potentially transformative gene therapies, to the benefit of patients in both the United States and Europe, as the foundation for our collaboration to address this devastating disease,” Robert Preti, PhD, chief strategy officer at Hitachi Chemical Life Science Business Headquarters, said in a press release.
