This isn’t news … The news from the conference is Sangamo’s “Functional Cure” for HIV/AIDS which is getting virtually no coverage.
Tiny Sangamo BioSciences Inc.’s potential “functional cure” for HIV is getting big attention in advance of a major AIDS scientific meeting.
SB-728-T, a gene therapy designed to knock out the CCR5 receptor on CD4 cells, protects and increases CD4s in patients experiencing poor immunologic recovery while on antiretroviral (ARV) therapy, according to preliminary Phase I study data reported on Monday, February 28, at the 18th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) in Boston. The new results, reported by Jay Lalezari, MD, are among the first from a human study illustrating the therapeutic—and curative—potential of this novel approach being developed by Sangamo BioSciences.
