12:17 EDTSGMOSangamo presents clinical data at CROI from SB-728-T program
Sangamo BioSciences announced the presentation of data from its SB-728-T program to develop a 'functional cure' for HIV/AIDS at the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections. The conference is being held in Boston from March 3 to 6. Data from an earlier Phase 1 clinical study in this program were also published in the March 6, 2014 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. At CROI, data were reported from a Phase 1 /2 clinical trial, SB-728-1101, designed to evaluate the effect of increasing doses of Cytoxan preconditioning as a method to increase the numbers of circulating T-cells, including cells that were zinc finger nuclease modified at the CCR5 gene. The data demonstrate that increasing doses of Cytoxan preconditioning prior to a single infusion of SB-728-T led to a dose-dependent increase in both engraftment of CCR5-modified cells and notable increases in total CD4 cells above the baseline. In addition, researchers observed the greatest decrease in viral load during a treatment interruption from antiretroviral therapy at the highest Cytoxan dose (1.0 g/m2). Two of the three subjects treated at this dose remain on TI with detectable but stable VLs of several weeks duration. In addition, Sangamo updated the status of a subject from its SB-728-902, Cohort 5 study, who has demonstrated ongoing control of VL for 31 weeks without ART, and who remains on TI.

07:11 EDTSGMOSangamo presents new data for Vivo Protein Replacement Platform
Sangamo announced the presentation of new preclinical data from its proprietary programs for the treatment of lysosomal storage disorders and Shire-partnered hemophilia program. These studies demonstrate the broad applicability of Sangamo's In Vivo Protein Replacement Platform for the potentially curative treatment of such diseases. The data presented at ASH from Sangamo's proprietary IVPRP applications demonstrated the efficient production, secretion and tissue uptake of functional iduronate-2-sulfatase and alpha-L-iduronidase, enzymes that are deficient in the LSDs, Hunter and Hurler's disease, respectively. Data were also presented from Sangamo's partnered program with Shire that demonstrated that therapeutic levels of Factor IX, the human clotting factor that is deficient in hemophilia B, could be generated in a dose-dependent manner in non-human primates. There were no significant alterations in circulating albumin levels. Studies in mice also demonstrated stable Factor IX production from Sangamo's IVPRP for over 1 year.
