Therapeutic/Technology: Therapeutic Approach


Lentiviral Gene Therapy for Infants with X-linked Severe Combined Immunodeficiency using Autologous Bone Marrow Stem Cells and Busulfan Conditioning

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Bone marrow stem cells will be transduced with a lentiviral vector to deliver a normal copy of the gamma-chain gene to treat X-linked SCID. Indication x-linked severe combined immunodeficiency, a severe pediatric disorder in which children have multiple defects in their immune system. Therapeutic Mechanism The gene therapy will correct the […]

Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension Treated with Cardiosphere-Derived Allogeneic Stem Cells

Therapeutic Candidate or Device CAP-1002 Indication Patients with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) Therapeutic Mechanism CAP-1002's mechanism of action may result in reduced wall thickening of small blood vessels in the lung that are markedly narrowed/obstructed in PAH. The latter results in high resistance against which the right ventricle (RV) must pump in order to drive […]

Induction of Tolerance to Combined Kidney and Hematopoietic Progenitor Cell Transplants from HLA Haplotype Matched Living Donors

Therapeutic Candidate or Device blood stem cells and T cells from organ transplant donors will be studied under this proposal to prevent rejection of kidney transplants Indication to withdraw immunosuppressant drugs from kidney transplant recipients Therapeutic Mechanism Injection of the donor blood stem cells into recipients will prevent recipient immune cells from rejecting the donor […]

Efficacy and safety of cryopreserved autologous CD34+ HSC transduced with EFS lentiviral vector encoding for human ADA gene in ADA-SCID subjects

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Autologous CD34+ hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) transduced with a lentiviral vector encoding the human ADA gene (or "OTL-101") Indication Adenosine Deaminase – Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (or ADA-SCID) Therapeutic Mechanism This project will lead to a License Application for OTL-101 as a treatment for ADA-SCID. The patient’s own stem cells ("autologous") are […]

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Autologous CD34+ hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) transduced with a lentiviral vector encoding the human ADA gene (or "OTL-101") Indication Adenosine Deaminase – Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (or ADA-SCID) Therapeutic Mechanism This project will lead to a License Application for OTL-101 as a treatment for ADA-SCID. The patient’s own stem cells ("autologous") are […]

Human Neural Progenitors Secreting Glial Cell Line-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (CNS10-NPC-GDNF) for the Treatment of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

Therapeutic Candidate or Device CNS10-NPC-GDNF – a neural progenitor cell secreting GDNF Indication ALS Therapeutic Mechanism This therapy will replace damaged astrocytes. The new astrocytes will release paracrine factors. As the cells have been modified to release GDNF they will also provide this factor to dying motor neurons. Unmet Medical Need There is no treatment […]

In Utero Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation For The Treatment Of Fetuses With Alpha Thalassemia Major

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Maternal bone marrow-derived CD34+ hematopoietic stem cells. Indication Fetal alpha thalassemia major. Therapeutic Mechanism This strategy that takes advantage of existing tolerance between the mother and fetus during pregnancy, so that maternal cells can be transplanted into a fetus without conditioning or immunosuppression. Survivors of alpha thalassemia need chronic blood transfusions […]

A Human Acellular Vessel in Patients Needing Renal Replacement Therapy: A Comparison with ePTFE Grafts as Conduits for Hemodialysis (HUMANITY)

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Human Acellular Vessel (HAV) Indication Conduit for Vascular Access for Hemodialysis Therapeutic Mechanism Mechanism of action: the HAV is comprised of intact extracellular matrix constructed by human smooth muscle cells (SMC) in a biomimetic bioreactor system. The manufacturing process is designed to create a biologic matrix similar in protein composition and […]

Allogeneic Cardiosphere-Derived Cells for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Cardiomyopathy

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Allogeneic Cardiosphere-Derived Cells (CDCs, CAP-1002) Indication Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Cardiomyopathy Therapeutic Mechanism Secretion of identified bioactive elements will reduce myocardial fibrosis and improve cardiac function. Unmet Medical Need Heart failure is the leading cause of death among young men with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. No specific therapies exist to treat this element […]
