Lysogene will also present a poster, entitled: “Design, baseline characteristics, and early findings of the MPS IIIA (mucopolysaccharidosis type IIIA) clinical observational study in 23 patients” during the poster session on February 7th from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm.
The WORLDSymposium™ is a leading annual research conference dedicated to lysosomal diseases. Since 2002, the W.O.R.L.D. (We’re Organizing Research on Lysosomal Diseases) meeting has grown to an international research conference that attracts over 1600 participants from more than 50 countries around the globe.
Lysogene is a gene therapy company focused on orphan diseases of the central nervous system (CNS), and a leader in MPSIIIA. Lysogene has generated five non-cumulative years of clinical safety data to show the efficiency of a direct delivery route to the CNS with its first gene therapy trial for MPS IIIA. The company has recently completed the enrollment for the first multi-national observational study in MPS IIIA, which will function as the non-concurrent control for the pivotal trial for MPS IIIA that is expected to start in H1 2018. A phase 1 clinical trial for GM1 Gangliosidosis is expected to start 2019. Both programs have orphan drug designation from the EMA and the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and rare pediatric designation from the FDA.
Lysogene is listed on the Euronext regulated market in Paris (ISIN code: FR0013233475). For more information: www.lysogene.com.
