Disease Focus: Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency

A Clinical Trial to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of RP-L201 in Subjects With Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency-I

Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency-I (LAD-I) is a rare pediatric disease caused by a mutation in a specific gene that affects the body’s ability to combat infections.  As a result, infants with severe LAD-I are often affected immediately after birth. During infancy, they suffer from recurrent life-threatening bacterial and fungal infections that respond poorly to antibiotics and […]


Therapeutic Candidate or Device The therapeutic candidate is an ex-vivo autologous gene therapy approach for Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency-I (LAD-I). Indication The target clinical indication is Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency-I (LAD-I), a pediatric hematological rare disease. Therapeutic Mechanism The therapeutic is based in an ex-vivo, lentiviral-based, patient-specific approach by genetically engineering the patient's own CD34 positively selected […]
