News: Decades after a tragic failure, gene therapy successfully treats a rare liver disease
Twenty-two years ago, one of scientists’ first attempts at gene therapy ended in tragedy when a young man died. The story of Jesse Gelsinger, who had a rare liver disorder, became a textbook example of irresponsible medical research. For years, the case hobbled efforts to treat diseases by adding new DNA to a sick person’s cells. Now, a fresh effort to cure Gelsinger’s disease is bearing fruit, in the latest sign of the field’s resurgence.

Webinar: Develop a Collaborative Delivery Network for Cell and Gene Therapies
With more than 2,600 cell and gene therapy (CGT) clinical trials currently being undertaken worldwide, the potential product approvals between 2022 and 2027 could be as high as 300 to 400. That means the groundwork for seamless cell and gene therapy care delivery needs to be laid now.
With many stakeholders involved in the complex CGT treatment journey, pharma needs to develop a collaborative plan, prepare a skilled workforce, and be ready to scale up rapidly.
Experts from J&J, Microsoft, Center for Breakthrough Medicines, Marken and EY come together in this webinar to discuss developing CGT manufacturing models and interconnected supply networks, to deliver an excellent patient experience.
Tune in live to this webinar on Tuesday June 15, or sign up to receive the recording here.

Conference: 2nd Gene Therapy Immunogenicity
The 2nd Gene Therapy Immunogenicity Summit, August 3-5, 2021, is the industry’s definitive forum enabling you to better modulate, measure and predict immune response to your gene therapy candidate.
In the context of ever-increasing gene therapy clinical activity and uncertainty around immunogenicity challenges, the Gene Therapy Immunogenicity Summit will unite large pharma and innovative biotechs to ensure that you’re up to speed on the latest approaches to predict, measure and overcome every immunogenicity challenge you encounter.
Focused specifically on examining gene therapy immunogenicity, this event will enable you to learn how to evaluate and overcome pre-existing immunity to AAV vectors, understand how immune-modulatory approaches could enable re-dosing and learn the reality of regulatory expectations around immunological assays.
Incorporating insights from leading immunological, bioanalytical and translational experts, this is your opportunity to gain extensive technical information on the contrasts between immunogenicity encountered across organs and administration routes, how models can be enhanced to enable comparative immunology between species and what the latest clinical data tells us about how to adapt existing approaches to address immunogenicity.
