Intellia Therapeutics Announces Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results and Highlights Recent Company Progress
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Aug. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intellia Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:NTLA), a leading clinical-stage genome editing company focused on developing potentially curative therapies leveraging CRISPR-based technologies, today reported operational highlights and financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.
“We continue to make excellent progress in both the cardiomyopathy and polyneuropathy arms of the landmark Phase 1 study of NTLA-2001,” said Intellia President and Chief Executive Officer John Leonard, M.D. “In June, we presented durability data demonstrating deep reductions in a disease-causing protein were sustained over time following a single-dose treatment. Additionally, we’ve completed the dose-escalation portion of the cardiomyopathy arm and look forward to starting the dose-expansion portion soon.”
Dr. Leonard continued, “As the leading full-spectrum genome editing company, our ex vivo capabilities and platform are also advancing. We believe our proprietary, differentiated cell engineering platform can solve many of the known challenges faced by both autologous and current allogeneic approaches. As a result, we plan to focus exclusively on developing allogeneic cell therapies, including an allogeneic version of NTLA-5001. Finally, we expect several important milestones later this year, which will include interim clinical data updates from the NTLA-2001 and NTLA-2002 programs.”
