CSL Behring, Seattle Children's to develop gene therapies

By The Science Advisory Board staff writers

June 2, 2020 -- CSL Behring, a biotechnology company, and Seattle Children's Research Institute announced that the organizations have entered a strategic alliance to develop stem cell gene therapies for primary immunodeficiency diseases.

The alliance will initially focus on the development of treatments for patients with either Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome or X-linked agammaglobulinemia, rare life-threatening diseases. CSL and Seattle Children's will apply novel gene therapy technology to accelerate research towards clinical trials. Together, the organizations will investigate applying proprietary platform technology, Select+ and Cytegrity, to several preclinical gene therapy programs. Broadly, the research will be associated with commercialization of stem cell therapies, including consistent manufacturing, efficacy, and tolerability.
