Emendo Biotherapeutics’ next generation CRISPR gene editing technologies achieve breakthrough results with allele-specific approach for ELANE -related Severe Congenital Neutropenia as presented at ASGCT Annual Meeting
Emendo Biotherapeutics presented the results of its next generation CRISPR-based gene editing approaches for several indications in an oral presentation and three posters at the 25th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy (ASGCT) held May 16-19, 2022, in Washington, D.C.
Emendo presented pre-clinical data for the treatment of ELANE-related Severe Congenital Neutropenia using an allele-specific editing approach, demonstrating the power of Emendo’s dual technology platforms that enable the development of a highly specific editing composition that demonstrates no off-targets and complete allele specificity. Significantly, the lack of off-target achieved by Emendo’s engineered and optimized OMNI nuclease also eliminated any translocations. Edited patient derived CD34+ cells differentiated normally into neutrophils both in-vitro and in-vivo, showing full engraftment and reconstitution of all blood lineages, as required for the desired therapeutic effect.
“ELANE-based Severe Congenital Neutropenia, Emendo’s lead indication, is a devastating disease affecting pediatric patients that until now has been incurable,” said David Baram, Ph.D., President & CEO of Emendo Biotherapeutics. “We are excited by the potentially curative treatment developed by our team and were pleased to present our pre-clinical results for this program and other diverse applications of our dual gene editing technology platforms at this year’s ASGCT meeting. And of course, we look forward to the discussion generated by our discoveries around Type II CRISPR nuclease classifications that promise to be ground-breaking in the field.”
Senior members of the Emendo Biotherapeutics R&D team including Chief Technology Officer Lior Izhar, Ph.D. and Executive Vice-President Research & Development Rafi Emmanuel, Ph.D. presented Emendo’s research on-site at the conference.
