  5. Ex Vivo Gene Therapy of Hemophilia A

    SBC: EXPRESSION THERAPEUTICS LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Hemophilia A is a bleeding disorder caused by mutations within the factor VIII (fVIII) gene that result in a deficiency of circulating fVIII activity. Current treatment for hemophilia relies on infusion of plasma-derived or recombinant fVIII to restore circulating fVIII activity. This form of therapy is 1) expensive, 2) hard to maintain due to the frequency and ...
