Orchard Therapeutics to present clinical data for OTL-101 & OTL-102

Biopharma major Orchard Therapeutics has reportedly made it to the front page for having announced details of oral and poster presentations for new clinical data. As per sources familiar with the knowledge of the matter, the prominent commercial-stage biopharmaceutical firm’s new clinical data for OTL-101 and OTL-102 will be presented at the TCT (Transplantation and Cellular Therapy) Meetings of the CIBMTR (Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research) and the ASBMT (American Society of Blood and Marrow Transplantation).

The presentations at both the ASBMT and the CIBMTR will be held between February 20 to February 24, 2019, at Houston, Texas.

According to an official press release by Orchard Therapeutics, Donald B.

The latter incidentally, is used for the treatment of ADA-SCID (adenosine deaminase severe combined immunodeficiency).

Reliable sources with the knowledge of the matter affirm that Dr. Kohn will also be responsible for presenting a detailed clinical proof-of-concept data for OTL-102, that is used for treating X-CGD (X-linked chronic granulomatous disease) – highlighted at the time of the Presidential Symposium, at the 2018 American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting and Exposition held in December.

As per credible reports, the oral presentation for OTL-101 and OTL-102 will focus on gene therapy for ADA-SCID and Lentiviral Gene Therapy for X-CGD (X-linked Chronic Granulomatous Disease) to be held at the George R. Brown Convention Center and Hilton Americas Houston respectively. The poster presentation for OTL-101, on the other hand, will revolve around autologous Ex Vivo Lentiviral Gene Therapy for treating ADA-SCID (Severe Combined Immune Deficiency Due to Adenosine Deaminase Deficiency), also to be held at the George R.
