Please tell us about your clinical experience. How many patients do you currently treat with hemophilia A? What percent of them are in severe condition, and what are the best treatment options available to increase FVIII activity?Added By: slingshot_insights
Can you explain to us the mechanism of action of SB-525 liver-targeted recombinant adeno-associated virus vector carrying B-domain deleted F8 gene?Added By: slingshot_insights
According to the data, the first 2 patients treated at the 3e13 vg/kg dose level achieved normal sustained factor VIII levels with no reported bleeding events and no factor usage during the 24 weeks of follow-up. How does this compare, and what is your take on the drug’s efficacy so far?Added By: slingshot_insights
- One patient experienced hypotension(grade 3) and fever(grade 2) 6 hours after completion of SB-525 infusion.
- In the 3e13 vg/kg cohort two subjects experienced a transient grade 1 alanine aminotransferase elevation (>1.5 x baseline) managed with a tapering course of oral steroids. Neither resulted in a loss of FVIII activity levels
