Casgevy is the first CRISPR-based drug to make its way through the approval process, all but curing Sickle Cell Disease and it’s paving the way for similar drugs targeting other diseases. Is Huntington’s disease next?
uniQure ushered in the end of the year by releasing some promising data from their huntingtin-lowering gene therapy trials
Both PTC Therapeutics and uniQure have shared updates from their respective clinical trials, testing different huntingtin-lowering approaches. We explore the data presented from both of these studies and what this means for HD family members.
Following a 3-month pause in enrollment due to concerns about side effects, uniQure shared the good news that their trial of the HD gene therapy AMT-130 will continue as planned, with new safety measures in place.
After receiving a high dose of uniQure’s gene therapy for Huntington’s disease, a few patients experienced serious side effects, but are now recovering. HDBuzz explores what this means for the experimental huntingtin-lowering drug, AMT-130.
uniQure is conducting safety trials of the first gene therapy for HD. A recent press release provided a 1 year update on the first group of 10 people who underwent surgery to receive this experimental drug. Let’s talk more about what it means.
Voyager Therapeutics is shifting towards a new technology to deliver gene therapy and away from a planned HD clinical trial. But this could lead to less invasive drugs in the long run, and many other companies are working on HD gene therapies.
A successful early trial of a drug for Familial Transthyretic Amyloidosis showed that CRISPR gene editing could be safely used in the human body. What does this mean for gene editing in HD?
The first group of 10 participants have been dosed in uniQure’s clinical trial of an HD gene therapy, and three new manuscripts describe safe, widespread huntingtin lowering in animals.
