LONDON, June 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Freeline, a biotechnology company focused on developing curative gene therapies for chronic systemic diseases, today announces that Professor Pratima Chowdary of the Katharine Dormandy Haemophilia and Thrombosis Centre, Royal Free Hospital UK and UCL Cancer Institute, and Chief investigator for the study, will present data in a late-breaking abstract session at the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) 2020 Congress on behalf of co-authors, which will be held virtually 12-14 July 2020. In addition, Freeline has five posters at the conference and will be presenting data on the Factor IX Padua variant and health economics from its Adeno-Associated Virus (AAV)-based haemophilia gene therapy platform.
“We are pleased to have an abstract on our novel investigational gene therapy treatment for haemophilia B accepted as a late-breaking abstract at the upcoming ISTH conference,” said Theresa Heggie, CEO. “Results we have presented previously from our lead program suggest that FLT180a has the potential to create sustained FIX activity levels in the normal range in patients with severe haemophilia B and has the potential to address a significant unmet medical need and advance the standard of care.”
