Development of the drug candidates LYS-SAF302, LYS-GM101 and the X-Fragile project
The drug candidate LYS-SAF302 developed by Lysogene in MPS IIIA is currently in a Phase 2/3 clinical trial for registration in Europe and the United States. The first patient in clinical trial was recruited in December 2018, and the first patient was treated in February 2019. Lysogene expects to complete the recruitment of the 20 patients of this Phase 2/3 clinical trial in the first half of 2020.
- Lysogene initiates preclinical toxicology studies of the drug candidate LYS-GM101 in GM1 gangliosidosis. The IND request for this drug candidate, prior to the start of Phase 1/2, is scheduled before the end of 2019. The IND is expected to be obtained in the first half of 2020.
- Lysogene expanded its portfolio of programs in 2018 by entering into a partnership to develop AAV-based gene therapy for the treatment of Fragile X syndrome, the most common inherited form of intellectual disability and autism spectrum disorder. This Fragile X syndrome program builds on Lysogene’s existing expertise in CNS diseases, and capitalizes on the company’s clinical and manufacturing capabilities.
Lysogene is a gene therapy company focused on treatment of orphan diseases for the central nervous system (CNS). The company has built a unique capability to enable a safe and effective delivery of gene therapies to the CNS to treat lysosomal diseases and other genetic disorders of the CNS.
