News: After one dose of gene therapy, hemophilia B patients maintain near-normal levels of clotting factor
Researchers are reporting the highest and most sustained levels to date of an essential blood-clotting factor IX in patients with the inherited bleeding disorder hemophilia B. After receiving a single dose of an experimental gene therapy in a clinical trial, patients with hemophilia produced near-normal levels of clotting factor IX, allowing them to stop clotting factor infusions and to pursue normal activities of daily life without disabling bleeding episodes.

News: American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy Issues ‘White Paper’ Explaining, Supporting Treatment
People interested in knowing more about gene editing and its therapeutic applications can now download a document prepared by the American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy (ASGCT). The document, titled 'Therapeutic Gene Editing: An ASGCT White Paper.' is intended as background information for policymakers, patients, and the general public to help them better understand the concept and its related therapies. Its release is intended to assist people in understanding a report on human gene editing by the National Academy of Sciences and National Academy of Medicine. That report, expected in early 2017, will likely cover the ethical, legal, and social implications of gene editing processes and, possibly, to guide policy.
