Newswise: Six patients with rare blood disease are doing well after gene therapy clinical trial

Six patients with rare blood disease are doing well after gene therapy clinical trial

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

UCLA researchers are part of an international team that reported the use of a stem cell gene therapy to treat nine people with the rare, inherited blood disease known as X-linked chronic granulomatous disease, or X-CGD. Six of those patients are now in remission and have stopped other treatments. Before now, people with X-CGD – which causes recurrent infections, prolonged hospitalizations for treatment, and a shortened lifespan – had to rely on bone marrow donations for a chance at remission.
