News: Gene therapy for Crigler-Najjar syndrome - First patient treated in the European clinical trial
Following patient recruitment and preliminary observation period, the first patient was injected by Prof. Labrune at Beclere Hospital in Clamart, France. Genethon, the AFM-Telethon laboratory, is sponsoring this multicenter international phase I/II trial, injecting intravenously an AAV vector that is able to transfer the UGT1A1 gene (coding for the production of bilirubin GT) into liver cells. A total of 17 patients will be treated over the next few months.

Conference: CAR-TCR Summit Europe
The industry-focused CAR-TCR Summit Europe takes place from 25-27 February, 2019, in London and is dedicated to developing, translating and delivering next generation CAR and TCR therapies for patients in Europe. Join over 250 of Europe’s leading drug developers to learn about never-before-seen clinical updates and novel technology to improve solid tumour targeting, advance allogeneic therapy development and automate manufacturing processes in order to create a targeted, efficacious and commercially viable cancer therapy.
