ABO-102 Gene Therapy Preserves Cognitive Development in Young Sanfilippo Children

August 12, 2019

Young children with Sanfilippo Syndrome who were treated with ABO-102 gene therapy in the high-dose cohort demonstrated preserved neurocognitive development 12-18 months post treatment. Additionally, the children continued to track within normal age-equivalent development.

Abeona Therapeutics, which is conducting the ongoing Phase 1/2 clinical trial evaluating ABO-102 gene therapy, announced the positive data in late July. 

In its statement, Abeona shared that, “Robust and sustained improvement observed in biomarkers confers additional evidence of a clear biological effect following ABO-102 administration. In addition, longer-term safety remained favorable eight months to two years after treatment.”

Abeona is enrolling eligible patients at sites in the U.S., Spain, and Australia. Read more about the trial enrollment.

Because of donors’ generous support, Cure Sanfilippo Foundation was an initial funder of Abeona’s gene therapy Type A and Type B clinical trials.
