Two hikers are going to great heights to increase awareness of blood disorders, and the urgent need for bone marrow donors in South Africa.

In a symbolic hike up the country's highest peak in the Drakensberg range, adventurer and bone marrow donor Clayton Coetzee and expert mountaineer and author Gavin Raubenheimer will be tackling Mafadi from 7 to 9 September in honour of those who have helped save the lives of countless people suffering from blood disorders.

Bone marrow donation is close to my heart as one of my dearest friends got sick with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) several years ago," says Coetzee. "Its then when I heard about the SA Bone Marrow Registry and the life-saving work that they do, and I decided to sign up as a donor."

Increase in cases

Blood cancer is one of the most common of these disorders and affects children the most, while other blood disorders include non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).

Unfortunately, according to the Search Coordinator for the SA Bone Marrow Registry (SABMR) Alicia Venter, these diseases have increased in the last decade 45% in NHL cases and 26% in leukaemia cases.

"While recommended, prevention efforts, such as lifestyle changes, tend to be less effective for hematologic malignancies than for other cancers, which makes a blood stem cell transplant a patients only hope for survival," says Venter.

In order to be a suitable bone marrow donor, your human leukocyte antigen (HLA) needs to match someone in need. HLAs are genes in a human's DNA that help regulate immunity and affect whether or not a recipient's body will reject a transplant.

Need more non-white donors

Finding a match, however, isn't as easy as swiping on a dating app and SAMBR has a serious lack of diversity in the donor database. Currently, there are only about 74 000 local donors on the South African Bone Marrow Registry.

In South Africa, there is a dire need for donors of colour," explains Venter.

"When it comes to matching HLA types, a patients ethnicity plays an important role as HLA markers are inherited. Some ethnic groups have more complex tissue types than others, therefore finding a match is most likely to come from someone of the same ethnic group."

'As easy as giving blood'

The hike is supposed to be symbolic of the uphill battle that faces those suffering from blood disorders, including finding a suitable donor to increase their chances of survival. Besides the gruelling experience, SAMBR will also be doing a cheek swab drive at the same time in Agulhas, Western Cape, and Musina, Limpopo, to help boost donor registrations.

According to Coetzee, it's easy to be registered as a donor all it takes is a cheek swab. If you do match with someone, it's "almost as easy as giving blood".

If a match is found, a donor will undergo a full medical exam to look for any exclusionary factors like obesity, HIV status, other chronic conditions and viral infections. Once cleared, the donor goes on a five-day treatment of injections to increase the number of stem cells in the bloodstream.

On the fifth day, the donor will be admitted to a hospital and connect to a cell separator machine, where the bone marrow donation would be made. The collected samples then has 72 hours to be transplanted to the receiving patient.

In South Africa, doctors will seldom collect bone marrow straight from the source.Possible side effects to receiving the injections may include headache, bone pain and flu-like symptoms.

I want people to know that blood diseases can affect anyone, regardless of ethnicity or gender. Extending beyond our boundaries or comfort zones like climbing Mafadi can be hard, but imagine the indelible difference the act of becoming a donor can have on someone elses life and their loved ones, says Coetzee.

You can follow the hikers' journey onSAMBR's Facebook page.

If you are between the ages of 18 and 45 and want to become a donor, contact the SABMR on021 447 8638 oremail:donors@sabmr.co.za.For more info and how to donate, visit their website.

Gamida Cell Announces Two-Part Virtual Miniseries Focused on Omidubicel to Take Place in September – Global Banking And Finance Review

By daniellenierenberg

Gamida Cell Ltd. (Nasdaq: GMDA), an advanced cell therapy company committed to cures for blood cancers and serious blood diseases, today announced that it will host a two-part virtual miniseries in September focused on key topics related to omidubicel, an advanced cell therapy in Phase 3 clinical development as a potentially life-saving treatment option for patients in need of a bone marrow transplant. The webcasts will take place on Friday, September 11, 2020, and Wednesday, September 23, 2020, both at 1:00 p.m. ET.

The miniseries topics are as follows:

In May, Gamida Cell reported that its Phase 3 study of omidubicel met its primary endpoint, demonstrating a highly statistically significant reduction in time to neutrophil engraftment, a key milestone in recovery from a bone marrow transplant. Gamida Cell expects to present the full data set, including secondary endpoint data, at a medical meeting in the fourth quarter of 2020. The company also expects to begin submitting the biologics license application for omidubicel to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on a rolling basis in the fourth quarter of 2020. Omidubicel is the first bone marrow transplant product to receive Breakthrough Therapy Designation from the FDA and has also received Orphan Drug Designation in the U.S. and EU.

Each webcast will be available on the Investors & Media section of the Gamida Cell website at http://www.gamida-cell.com. A replay of the webcast will be available about two hours after the event, for approximately 90 days.

About Omidubicel

Omidubicel is an advanced cell therapy under development as a potential life-saving allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell (bone marrow) transplant solution for patients with hematologic malignancies (blood cancers). In both Phase 1/2 and Phase 3 clinical studies (NCT01816230 and NCT02730299), omidubicel demonstrated rapid and durable time to engraftment and was generally well tolerated.1,2 Omidubicel is also being evaluated in a Phase 1/2 clinical study in patients with severe aplastic anemia (NCT03173937). The aplastic anemia investigational new drug application is currently filed with the FDA under the brand name CordIn, which is the same investigational development candidate as omidubicel. For more information on clinical trials of omidubicel, please visit http://www.clinicaltrials.gov.

Omidubicel is an investigational therapy, and its safety and efficacy has not been evaluated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or any other health authority.

The Fallacy of Banking Umbilical Cord Blood for Your Baby – The Wire Science

By daniellenierenberg

Featured image: A human baby, just days after its birth, with the umbilical cord stump still attached. Photo: Wikimedia Commons/Evan-Amos, Public Domain

My patient, a man in his 70s, sat a few feet away from me in a clinic room at our cancer centre. His wife was by his side, both literally and emotionally she was his touchstone, his connection to the normal life he led before his leukemia diagnosis. I noticed they tended to wear outfits that even complemented each other, as if their sartorial choices had harmonized and become intertwined along with their affection over the 40 years of their marriage. Their choice for the day: grey sweatshirts declaring their allegiance to the hapless Cleveland Browns.

He had weathered the slings and arrows of the chemotherapy we used to treat his cancer during a five-week hospital stay, and now was in a tenuous remission. We talked about the next steps in his treatment, which ranged from giving him a break, to more chemotherapy, to considering the most aggressive intervention we could offer a bone marrow transplant.

The phrase bone marrow transplant was a bit of a misnomer, though. While we could wipe out any residual leukemia in his bone marrow with high-dose chemotherapy and replace his fresh bone marrow from a healthy person, we may not be able to find a good bone marrow match. Another potential option: We could use umbilical cord blood from a newborn, which is rich in the stem cells normally found in the bone marrow, and which recent studies have shown may not need to match as closely as is necessary for a marrow donor. Hearing this, my patients wife interjected.

Our daughter is pregnant, and her due date is next month. She started, glancing at my patient as he nodded his head in agreement. She wanted us to ask if she should save the babys cord blood in case he needs it for a transplant.

I explained to them that the babys cord blood was unlikely to be a close enough match to my patient, as my patients daughter would only be a half-match for him, and her baby less than that. My patient then asked me a question I have been hearing more and more over the years: Should my daughter save the cord blood in case our grandbaby needs it, in case he or she develops cancer?

Indeed, in the US, the practice of storing umbilical cord blood is steadily on the rise. Banking cord blood in case a bone marrow transplant is needed in the future is appealing on so many levels. The umbilical cord attaching the developing fetus to its mothers placenta is rich in those juicy bone marrow stem cells that are so effective at making the blood components. Coming from an infant at the time of birth, they should be uncorrupted by cancer (emphasis on theshould, as well see in a moment). Cord blood is also easy to collect: At the time of delivery, after the cord is cut, the remaining blood in that cord is milked out into a collection bag. That bag is then kept in a freezer until the time comes, if ever, when it is needed and can be infused as a transplant.

The cost of using commercial cord blood banking companies, however, can be substantial. Upfront charges with whats called an enrollment fee can range from $1,500 to $3,500. On top of that, a yearly storage fee is assessed, with the total amount for 18-20 years of storage cresting $5,000 in some cases.

Brochures for these companies line Plexiglas display cases in obstetrics offices, with pamphlets exhorting nervous, expectant parents to protect their baby from the medical evils that lie ahead. What better source for a transplant than a childs own, pure stem cells, harvested at a time years before that child ever developed cancer? But cost aside, is the effort even worth it for the risk that a child may one day develop a cancer and need a future transplant?

Taking a couple of things into consideration

To answer this question, we need to take a couple of things into consideration. First, what is the likelihood of a child developing a cancer, and then needing a transplant to treat that cancer? Astudy conducted by the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research attempted to figure this out. They first identified the cancers for which transplantation could potentially be needed. For people aged 0-19 years (the length of time a cord blood would be kept banked) leukemia was the most common, followed by lymphoma, neuroblastoma, brain tumors, and sarcomas. Cancer in children and adolescents are rare all told, the incidence rate in the US for all of these cancers combined is about 12 per 100,000 children per year. Its horrible if its your child who develops cancer, but pediatric cancer is still an uncommon event.

The next conclusion is based on the likelihood that these cancers would not be eradicated by chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy and would require an allogeneic transplant that is, one that uses stem cells taken from a genetically matched donor and the assumption that everyone could identify a sibling or brother from another mother transplant and was healthy enough to undergo the procedure. The authors estimated that the incidence rate of transplant for children and adolescents was a little over 2 per 100,000 per year in the US during their first two decades of life. Analyzed another way, the probability a child will need a transplant by the time he or she reaches age 20 is 0.04%.

The lifetime chance of getting struck by lightning is similar, at about 1 in 3,000, or 0.033%.

Would you pay thousands of dollars for a medication right now, in the event that sometime in your life you may be struck by lightning, and that medication may help you survive the lightning strike?

Seems excessive to me.

Is cord blood really as pure as we think?

A second way of determining the value of cord blood banking in case a child develops cancer is to consider whether that cord blood is really as pure as we think. The most common childhood cancer through age 19 is leukemia, with an annual incidence rate of 4.7 per 100,000 children in the US. Could it be possible that the leukemia was present at some small level even at birth, years before the child was diagnosed with leukemia?

One approach to studying this would be to screen every newborn for leukemia. Given the incidence rate of childhood leukemia, this would mean subjecting over 21,000 babies to a blood test for every case of future leukemia identified.

Its difficult to justify that type of monumental screening effort to answer a research question about the origins of leukemia. A more reasonable approach would be to identify children who have leukemia, and try to determine whether they had it when they were born.

But how to go about obtaining a blood sample from a birth that occurred years earlier? A group of clever scientists from the UK and Germany thought the answer might be found in something called Guthrie cards. Robert Guthrie was a microbiologist working at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, New York, in the 1950s when his niece was diagnosed with phenylketonuria (PKU), an inherited deficiency in the enzyme necessary to metabolize the amino acid phenylalanine. If caught early enough, an infants diet can be modified so that the effects of the deficiency are minimised. If not, the condition can lead to developmental defects and mental disability.

Guthries niece was not so lucky.

This, and having a child of his own with cognitive delays, motivated Guthrie to devote his career to detecting preventable childhood diseases. He developed a test for PKU that could be performed when a drop of blood from a finger prick or heel stick was applied to filter paper on a card. It was successfully piloted in Newark in 1960, and by 1963, 400,000 infants had been tested in 29 states. Testing spread around the country, and across the pond.

And hospital laboratories kept those Guthrie cards for years after a child was born.

A startling discovery

The scientistsfound three children with acute lymphocytic leukemia (more common in children than AML, whereas the opposite is true in adults) who had the same chromosome mutation associated with their leukemias a translocation of chromosomes 4 and 11. After obtaining permission from the parents of these children, the scientists then searched laboratory repositories to find the Guthrie cards stored there from when the children were born.

They used a PCR-specific lab test for this translocation on the dried blood still remaining on the childrens Guthrie cards, and were able to detect the chromosome abnormality for all three children from a blood drop obtained months or years before the leukemia was diagnosed. In another, similar study, the same group of scientists was able to detect chromosome evidence of leukemia in 9 of the 12 Guthrie cards obtained from children who diagnosed with leukemia between two and five years later.

The leukemia was there all along, even prior to birth in these children, waiting years in some cases to rear its ugly head. And if the leukemia was measurable on a genetic level in their blood, it was almost certainly present in their cord blood. Banking cord blood from these children would have preserved those juicy, healthy stem cells, but also probably cells already corrupted by genetic abnormalities that would lead to leukemia again, if the cells were re-infused into a child as a transplant years later.

Getting back to the question: Is the cost and effort of banking cord blood worth it for the risk that a child may one day develop a cancer and need a future transplant?

I didnt think so when my three children were born.

But I did have their cord blood collected and I donated it to be stored for use through theBe The Match programme, in case a complete stranger needs it. So that one day, my children could be the brothers from another mother, or sister from another mister me being the mister!

And so that one day, my patients wont have to forego potentially curative treatments for their leukemias because they cant find an adequate donor.

Girls heartbreaking plea after her only bone marrow donor pulls out – NEWS.com.au

By daniellenierenberg

A young girl with an extremely rare blood disorder has been dealt a huge blow after her bone marrow donor her only match in the world pulled out at the last moment.

After developing a pinprick rash on her back, eight-year-old Evie Hodgson from Yorkshire in the UK was diagnosed with deadly aplastic anaemia in May, a blood disease in which the body doesnt produce enough blood cells.

The schoolgirl was due to undergo a bone-marrow transplant this month that would save her life but her donor called as she was preparing for the operation.

Evies parents Andy and Tina, and younger brother William, were sadly not a match, but they did find a 10/10 match, with the anonymous donor agreeing to the transplant.

But as she prepared for the transplant by having one of her ovaries removed and undergoing dental work, on August 14, just days before the planned surgery, the donor pulled out.

RELATED: Mum stranded in Ukraine after surrogate gives birth

Now her parents have set up a Facebook page to help find a new hero, calling on people to get tested and see if they are a match.

Initially it seemed that Evie had been lucky as a match for the transplant was found quickly and the procedure was planned to take place in August, a post on the Evie Needs a Hero Facebook page reads.

Only a few weeks prior to the planned transplant date Evies one and only 10/10 donor has pulled out of donating his stem cells. This news was totally unexpected and her family and friends are devastated.

In just over a week, the page has amassed almost 20,000 followers, many who are undergoing testing to see if they can help Evie.

RELATED: Heartbreaking pandemic impact on babies

Mum Tina said the family were devastated by the huge blow adding they had no idea why the donor changed their mind everything is confidential.

Evie has already been through so much, she told The Metro. She thought she had a donor and now she doesnt.

The donor pulling out is quite hard-hitting but from our point of view we just want to raise awareness of the stem cell register.

Initially doctors thought Evie may have leukaemia when she became sick during coronavirus lockdown earlier this year.

Then they were given the devastating diagnosis of aplastic anaemia.

Evie needs a stem cell transplant from a compatible donor to survive and has recently undergone an immunosuppressant course of treatment while the search for a new stem cell donor continues.

I need this transplant to save my life, Evie says in a video on the Facebook page. Please sign the register to help save my life.

‘Huge blow’ as girl’s only bone marrow donor in the world pulls out at last minute – 7NEWS.com.au

By daniellenierenberg

A distraught family in the UK has made an urgent plea after their little girl, who has a rare blood disorder, had her only bone marrow donor pull out at the last minute.

Just as she got prepared for the bone marrow transplant, Evie Hodgsons donor pulled out - devastating her family.

Her mother is now worried about the eight year olds future, as the chances of finding another donor are extremely slim.

In fact, theyre so slim that doctors are trying to find another course of treatment for Evie.

This is despite the fact that finding a stem cell transplant from a compatible donor is the best hope of curing the little girl.

Evie, from North Yorkshire, has deadly aplastic anaemia which was diagnosed after she developed a rash on her back that didnt fade.

She was found to have low blood platelet levels which doctors worried was leukaemia.

A biopsy found that Evie didnt have cancerous cells and she was diagnosed with the anaemia - her parents told she would need a bone marrow transplant.

A worldwide search was launched to find a donor after it was found that her family wasnt a match.

The search concluded after an anonymous donor was found who was a 10/10 match.

Next, they began to prepare for the transplant, which included both dental work and the removal of an ovary.

On August, the family got the devastating news that the donor had, in fact, pulled out.

We were devastated, it was a huge blow, mum Tina said.

We have no idea why the donor changed their mind. Everything is confidential.

Evie has already been through so much. She thought she had a donor and now she doesnt.

The donor pulling out is quite hard-hitting but from our point of view we just want to raise awareness of the stem cell register.

Its so easy to be a donor. Its just like giving blood, but you could save a childs life.

Some people dont even know they could be a match.

Its so easy to join the register but only about 1 per cent of the UK population is registered.

The eight-year-old is now to undergo an immunosuppressant course of treatment.

This is while the search for a donor continues.

The family has made a Facebook group to update people on her journey and to also raise awareness within the community.

The condition Evie has is life-threatening, Tina said.

She wont survive without a transplant.

Thats why we are desperately appealing for any many people as possible to register as a stem cell donor.

I need this transplant to save my life, Evie added.

The Mesoblast share price rocketed 40% higher in August: Is it too late to invest? – Motley Fool Australia

By daniellenierenberg

One of the best performers on theS&P/ASX 200 Index(ASX: XJO) in August was the Mesoblast limited(ASX: MSB) share price.

The biotechnology companys shares recorded a stunning 40.5% gain during the month.

Investors were scrambling to buy the biotechnology companys shares in August due to positive developments relating to its remestemcel-L product candidate.

Remestemcel-L, also known as RYONCIL, is being developed as a treatment for paediatric steroid-resistance acute graft versus host disease (paediatric SR-aGvHD).

SR-aGvHD is an area of extreme need, particularly in vulnerable children under 12 years old where there is no approved therapy. It occurs in approximately 50% of patients who receive an allogeneic bone marrow transplant (BMT) and has a very high mortality rate.

Remestemcel-L is an investigational therapy comprising culture-expanded mesenchymal stem cells derived from the bone marrow of an unrelated donor.

It is administered to patients in a series of intravenous infusions and is believed to have immunomodulatory properties to counteract the inflammatory processes that are implicated in SR-aGvHD. This is by down-regulating the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, increasing production of anti-inflammatory cytokines, and enabling recruitment of naturally occurring anti-inflammatory cells to involved tissues.

In August the company hadits meeting with the Oncologic Drugs Advisory Committee (ODAC) of the U.S. FDA to discuss remestemcel-L as a potential treatment for paediatric SR-aGvHD.

The good news was that after some initial doubts, the ODAC was supportive of remestemcel-L and gave it the thumbs up.

While this doesnt necessarily guarantee that the U.S. FDA will approve it on 30 September, its opinions have a big sway on product approvals for cancer drugs. In light of this, the odds are certainly in Mesoblasts favour later this month.

I think Mesoblast is an exciting company and well worth keeping a close eye on.

However, due to its current valuation, I would class it as a hold and would sooner be a buyer of CSL Limited (ASX: CSL) shares.

I think they are trading at a more attractive level after a recent pullback.

EBMT trial shows improvements in treatment of Severe Aplastic Anaemia – Science Codex

By daniellenierenberg

The European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT), Europe's collaborative peer network of professionals working in the field of stem cell transplantation and cellular therapy, announced today the results of the phase III RACE trial during EBMTs virtual 46th Annual Meeting. Preliminary data show that adding Eltrombopag to standard immunosuppressive treatment is safe and increases response rates in patients with Severe Aplastic Anaemia (SAA).

SAA is a condition in which the bone marrow does not produce enough new blood cells. It is a rare, yet potentially fatal disease which can be treated with bone marrow transplantation or, for patients who are not eligible to receive a transplantation, with immunosuppressive treatment. The most commonly used immunosuppressive regimen includes horse ATG (hATG) in combination with Cyclosporine A (CsA). However, about 35% of patients do not respond to treatment or eventually relapse.

Eltrombopag is a thrombopoietin receptor agonist that was developed to stimulate thrombopoiesis (production of platelets), but it was subsequently shown to restore trilineage haematopoiesis. A previous single-arm study showed that adding Eltrombopag to standard immunosuppressive treatment appeared to improve the response rate as compared to the use of hATG plus CsA alone. The first results of the randomised controlled RACE trial now confirm that adding Eltrombopag to standard immunosuppression leads to significantly higher response rates compared to standard immunosuppressive treatment alone.

The RACE trial is sponsored by the EBMT with the financial support of Novartis and Pfizer. Professors. Rgis Peffault de Latour (Head of the French Reference Center for Aplastic Anemia and PNH, Saint-Louis Hospital, and University of Paris) and Antonio M. Risitano (Federico II University, Naples, and Head of Hematology and the BMT Unit, Ospedale Moscati, Avellino, Italy) served as Principal Investigators of the study, and they designed the study together with Professor Carlo Dufour (Head of the Hemato Oncology and Stem Cell Transplantation Department. G.Gaslini Childrens' Research Hospital, Genova, Italy). Under the energetic and efficient coordination of Sofie Terwel, the trial was successfully conducted by the RACE study team at the EBMT Clinical Trial Office. The study was presented by Prof. Peffault de Latour at the presidential symposium of EBMT's virtual Annual Meeting and was granted the Van Bekkum Award, the most prestigious EBMT award for the best abstract submitted to the physician's programme.

The international, investigator-driven, open-label, phase III, randomised trial evaluated 197 patients with SAA. Patients were aged 15 years or older, had acquired SAA, and had not received prior immunosuppressive treatment. Patients were randomised to receive either standard immunosuppression (hATG 40 mg/kg x4d and CsA 5 mg/kg/d) or standard immunosuppression + Eltrombopag at the dose of 150 mg/d from day +14 until 6 months (or 3 months, in case of early complete response). The primary endpoint of the study is complete response (CR) at 3 months, with CR being defined as haemoglobin 100 g/L, neutrophils 1.0 g/L and platelets 100g/L, according to standard international criteria.

It was shown that three months after treatment start, patients who received the combination of hATG, CsA plus Eltrombopag had a significantly higher complete response rate compared to patients treated with hATG and CsA alone. These higher response rates were sustained at 6 months. Moreover, Eltrombopag was generally well-tolerated, with a comparable occurrence of adverse events in the two treatment arms. This trial also shows that in this rare disease, large randomised trials can successfully be run in collaboration with many expert centres in Europe.

"Eltrombopag is registered in Europe for second line treatment of aplastic anaemia, so it is only available to patients who cannot receive bone marrow transplantation and have failed immunosuppressive treatment" explains Prof. Peffault de Latour. Prof. Risitano states: "The RACE trial data shows that eltrombopag increased response rates for nave SAA patients who are not eligible for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. The RACE study team is continuing to follow up the trial participants up to two years and furthermore aims to set up a long-term follow-up study to monitor the effectiveness and safety of Eltrombopag up to ten years.". "The EBMT Clinical Trial Office is already actively working on this new project, which likely will provide the final evidence about the benefit of using triple therapy as initial treatment for Severe Aplastic Anemia." concludes Prof. Dufour.

New Report Begins a New Era of Stem Cell Science and Medicine: Stem Cell Biotechnology Company Asymmetrex Tells How It Counts Therapeutic Tissue Stem…

By daniellenierenberg

In an August 28 special issue of the peer-reviewed online journal OBM Transplantation, stem cell biotechnology company Asymmetrex has now published a report describing how its technology for determining the specific dosage of therapeutic tissue stem cells works. The new technology is poised to revolutionize stem cell science and stem cell medicine by giving the long-needed means to quantity their essential focus, tissue stem cells.

BOSTON, Sept. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ --Stem cell biotechnology company, Asymmetrex, has been counting tissue stem cells like those used for bone marrow and cord blood transplantation therapies for a few years now. Recently, the company announced the issue of patents for its first-in-kind technology both in the U.S. and the U.K. However, until last Friday, August 28, Asymmetrex had not reported in the peer-reviewed academic literature how it achieves this feat that had been pursued by many distinguished labs for more than six decades.

Now in a report published in a special issue of OBM Transplantation, a peer-review journal for transplantation medicine research, Asymmetrex completes its introduction of the new technology to the fields of stem cell science and stem cell medicine. The report is the second invited article published in a special issue focused on the "Isolation and Characterization of Adult Therapeutic Cells."

The new report describes Asymmetrex's discovery of mathematical formulas, call algorithms, that can be used to determine the number of stem cells in complex tissue cell preparations, like experimental samples or patient treatments. The stem cell counting algorithms are specific for different types of tissue stem cells. So, the algorithms defined for blood stem cells are distinct from the algorithms for liver stem cells, or lung stem cells. Once an algorithm is defined by the Asymmetrex technology, it can be used repeatedly as a simple, rapid, and inexpensive test to determine the quantity and dosage of its specific tissue stem cell type.

Asymmetrex's founder and director, James L. Sherley, M.D., Ph.D., anticipated the August publication of the new algorithms in a talk given earlier at the 6th Annual Perinatal Stem Cell Society Congress in March of this year. Then and now, he says that he believes, "Now that the tissue stem cell counting algorithms are available, everything will change" in stem cell science and medicine.

Prior to Asymmetrex's technology, there was no method for counting tissue stem cells in research, medicine, or for any other of their many uses. So, the impact of the stem cell counting algorithms in research and medicine is far-reaching. Such information is a game changer for accelerating progress in stem cell science and stem cell medicine, including improving treatments like gene therapy whose success depends on targeting tissue stem cells. There will also be tremendous gains in cell biomanufacturing, drug development, and environmental toxicology, all whose capabilities are currently limited by the lack of a facile means to quantify tissue stem cells.

To make the new counting technology readily accessible for evaluation by the greater academic, medical, and industrial stem cell communities, Asymmetrex provides free tissue stem cell counting on its company website.

About Asymmetrex

Asymmetrex, LLC is a Massachusetts life sciences company with a focus on developing technologies to advance stem cell medicine. The company's U.S. and U.K. patent portfolio contains biotechnologies that solve the two main technical problems production and quantification that have stood in the way of effective use of human adult tissue stem cells for regenerative medicine and drug development. Asymmetrex markets the first technology for determination of the dose and quality of tissue stem cell preparations (the "AlphaSTEM Test") for use in stem cell transplantation therapies and pre-clinical drug evaluations. Asymmetrex is a member company of the Advanced Regenerative Manufacturing Institute BioFabUSA and the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council.

Parents plea for stem cell help to save life of daughter with rare blood disorder – Mirror Online

By daniellenierenberg

The parents of a girl battling a deadly blood disorder are begging people to join the stem cell donor register to save her life after her only match in the world pulled out at the last minute.

Evie Hodgson, eight, who suffers from aplastic anaemia, was due to have a bone marrow transplant this month but her donor backed out at the last possible moment.

Her mum, Tina, says the chances of finding another donor are so slim that doctors are now planning a different course of treatment. But, in future, a stem call transplant is Evies best hope of being cured.

The schoolgirl, from Whitby, North Yorks, was first taken to hospital with a rash and was diagnosed with aplastic anaemia in May.

After a global donor search was launched, a 10/10 match was found and the anonymous donor agreed to the procedure. In preparation, Evie had to have dental work and one of her ovaries was removed. But on August 14 the donor pulled out.

Tina, 37, who works at RAF Flyingdales, in Pickering, North Yorks, said: We were devastated, it was a huge blow. We have no idea why the donor changed their mind. Evie has already been through so much. She thought she had a donor and now she doesnt.

The donor pulling out is quite hard-hitting, but we want to raise awareness of the stem cell register. Its so easy to be a donor. Its just like giving blood, but you could save a childs life. Its so easy to join but only 1% of the UK population is registered.

Evie said: I need this transplant to save my life. Please sign the register to help.

Tina added: The condition Evie has is life-threatening. She wont survive without a transplant. We are desperately appealing for people to sign the stem cell register.

Evie was diagnosed with the condition after she developed a pin-prick rash on her back, which didnt fade. Tests revealed she had low blood platelet levels and she was told she needed a bone marrow transplant.

Aplastic anaemia is a rare life-threatening condition where the bone marrow fails to produce enough blood cells. Around 100-150 people are diagnosed in the UK each year.

Treatment can include immunosuppressants, chemotherapy, blood transfusions, or blood and bone marrow transplants.

Neither Tina, dad Andy, 49, or brother William, five, were a match and so an international search was launched.

Tina said: Our world crumbled when Evie was diagnosed. Evie knew shed need chemotherapy. She donated her hair to The Little Princess Trust, after making friends with poorly children who have lost all their hair.

Evie will be treated with immunosuppressants while the search for a donor continues.

Blood cancer charity Anthony Nolan is looking for stem cell donors between the ages of 16-30.

Research shows that younger donors result in better outcomes for patients.

Girl’s only bone marrow donor in the world pulls out at last moment – Metro.co.uk

By daniellenierenberg

Evie Hodgson, 8, was due to undergo a bone marrow transplant this month, but her only match in the world pulled out at the last minute (Picture: North News)

A little girl battling a rare blood disorder has issued a desperate plea for donors after her only match in the world pulled out at the last minute.

Evie Hodgson, 8, was due to undergo a bone marrow transplant this month but her donor cancelled just as she was getting prepared.

Mum Tina, of Whitby, North Yorkshire, said the chances of finding another donor are so slim doctors are planning a different course of treatment.

But the best hope Evie has of being cured is to find a stem cell transplant from a compatible donor.

The schoolgirl was diagnosed with deadly aplastic anaemia in May after she developed a pin prick rash on her back which didnt fade.

Tests revealed she had low blood platelet levels, which medics initially thought might be leukaemia but a biopsy found no cancerous cells.

They were then given the devastating diagnosis and Evie was told she would need a bone marrow transplant.

Tina, 37, dad Andy, 49, and five-year-old brother William, were sadly not a match so a worldwide search was launched to find a donor.

To the familys delight, a 10/10 match was found, with the anonymous donor agreeing to go ahead.

The family began to prepare for the transplant, including dental work and the removal of one of her ovaries, but to their horror, on August 14, they were told the donor had pulled out.

Tina, who works at RAF Flying Dales, said: We were devastated, it was a huge blow. We have no idea why the donor changed their mind. Everything is confidential.

Evie has already been through so much. She thought she had a donor and now she doesnt.

The donor pulling out is quite hard hitting but from our point of view we just want to raise awareness of the stem cell register.

Its so easy to be a donor. Its just like giving blood, but you could save a childs life. Some people dont even know they could be a match.

Its so easy to join the register but only about 1% of the UK population is registered.

Evie is set to undergo an immunosuppressant course of treatment while the search for a donor continues.

Her family have set up a Facebook group to raise awareness and to update progress on Evies journey.

Tina added: The condition Evie has is life-threatening. She wont survive without a transplant.

Thats why we are desperately appealing for any many people as possible to register as a stem cell donor.

Evie said: I need this transplant to save my life. Please sign the register to help save my life.

Vor Biopharma and Metagenomi to Collaborate on Engineered Hematopoietic Stem-Cell Therapies – Business Wire

By daniellenierenberg

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Vor Biopharma, an oncology company pioneering engineered hematopoietic stem cells (eHSCs) for the treatment of cancer, and Metagenomi, a gene editing company discovering breakthrough systems for curing genetic disease, today announced that Vor will evaluate the potential use of Metagenomis gene editing technology to develop engineered hematopoietic stem cell-based therapies for the treatment of blood cancers, such as acute myeloid leukemia.

Cancer patients deserve therapies with strong effects on cancer cells and minimal effects on all other cells, said Tirtha Chakraborty, Ph.D., Vors VP and Head of Research. Our new partnership with Metagenomi will help us achieve this goal by engineering hematopoietic stem cells using precise yet flexible gene editing thereby ensuring that targeted therapies can live up to their name."

The collaboration is non-exclusive and applies to pre-clinical research only. Further terms of the agreement are not being disclosed.

This partnership unites two transformative technologies our proprietary gene editing enzymes, and Vors platform for engineering hematopoietic stem cells such that they are inherently treatment-resistant, said Brian C. Thomas, Metagenomis CEO and co-founder. We are excited to be working together to bring both of these cutting-edge approaches into the clinic.

About Vor Biopharma

Vor Biopharma aims to transform the lives of cancer patients by pioneering engineered hematopoietic stem cell (eHSC) therapies. By removing biologically redundant proteins from eHSCs, these cells become inherently invulnerable to complementary targeted therapies while tumor cells are left susceptible, thereby unleashing the potential of targeted therapies to benefit cancer patients in need.

Vors platform could be used to potentially change the treatment paradigm of both hematopoietic stem cell transplants and targeted therapies, such as antibody drug conjugates, bispecific antibodies and CAR-T cell treatments.

Vor is based in Cambridge, Mass. and has a broad intellectual property base, including in-licenses from Columbia University, where foundational work was conducted by inventor and Vor Scientific Board Chair Siddhartha Mukherjee, MD, DPhil.

About VOR33

Vors lead product candidate, VOR33, consists of engineered hematopoietic stem cells (eHSCs) that lack the protein CD33. Once these cells are transplanted into a cancer patient, we believe that CD33 will become a far more cancer-specific target, potentially avoiding toxicity to the normal blood and bone marrow associated with CD33-targeted therapies. Vor aims to improve the therapeutic window and effectiveness of CD33-targeted therapies, thereby potentially broadening the clinical benefit to patients suffering from acute myeloid leukemia.

About Metagenomi

Metagenomi is harnessing the vast information found in life on Earth to develop cures for genetic disease. Using proprietary data collected from around the world, Metagenomi has developed novel gene editing tools that enable next-generation gene and cell therapies.

Metagenomi is based out of Emeryville, California, and was founded by pioneers in the field of metagenomics, Jill Banfield and Brian C. Thomas. Metagenomi generates massive quantities of data from natural environments, producing complete genomes from organisms that are otherwise unknown. Metagenomi then unlocks the information captured in these genomes to develop game-changing in vivo and ex vivo therapeutics.

Familys plea to help save girl, 8, after her only donor match in the world pulls out at the last minute – The Sun

By daniellenierenberg

THE family of a girl battling a deadly blood disorder are pleading for help after her only donor match in the world pulled out at the last minute.

Evie Hodgson, eight, who suffers from aplastic anaemia - also known as bone marrow failure - was due to have a transplant this month but her donor backed out.

4

Her mum, Tina Hodgson, says the chances of finding another donor are so slim that doctors are now planning a different course of treatment.

The youngster from Sleights, Whitby, was rushed to hospital with a rash during the coronavirus lockdown.

She was diagnosed with aplastic anaemia in May.

Amazingly, a match was found and preparations were underway for surgery.

But just weeks before the transplant, the donor pulled out and the family's "world fell apart, again".

However, the courageous pupil at Fyling Hall School, in Robin Hoods Bay, is determined to battle the disease.

Evie's mum told how the family received the diagnosis: "In the middle of the Covid lockdown, Evie woke up one morning with a red pin rash all over her body.

"We first thought it was meningitis because it wasn't fading under a tumbler but she had no other symptoms."

The family contacted the NHS 111 service and were advised to take Evie to Whitby A&E.

"The doctor took one look at her and thought it was sepsis," Tina said.

"She had IV antibiotics there and we were rushed to James Cook University Hospital by ambulance."

4

Evie then had blood tests at the Middlesbrough hospital which revealed her platelets were low - but her red and white blood cells were fine.

She was diagnosed with a platelet condition - known as ITP - and told she would need to return to hospital once per week for tests.

But when the family returned to Teesside one week later, tests revealed all Evie's cell counts were low.

The youngster was then immediately transferred to Great North Childrens Hospital in Newcastle.

Tina, who works at RAF Fylingdales, said: "Deep down we thought this is quite serious and I think everyone though it was leukaemia."

In May, further tests revealed that Evie didn't have cancerous cells - and not many cells at all - as doctors broke the devastating news that Evie was suffering from aplastic anaemia.

4

As the family received the diagnosis, Tina said: "As parents we said thank god it isn't cancer but then the nurse said this is just as bad, it is a lot harder to treat.

"Our world fell apart at that point."

Aplastic anemia is a condition that occurs when your body stops producing enough new blood cells.

Around 100-150 people are diagnosed in the UK each year.

Treatment can include immunosuppressants, chemotherapy, blood transfusions, or blood and bone marrow transplants.

Evie's first option was a bone marrow transplant as a cure, but mum Tina, dad Andy and Evies five-year-old brother William were not a match.

The next step was to search the international database for a bone marrow transplant.

And luckily, Evie's perfect donor - the only one in the world - was found and preparations for surgery were scheduled.

Evie had one of her ovaries removed, dental work carried out and even chopped off her Rapunzel-like locks to donate to The Little Princess Trust.

Speaking through tears about her brave little girl, Tina, 37, said: "Evie was always that girl at the hairdressers that wanted her hair like Rapunzel.

"When we've been in the hospital she has saw her friends with no hair.

"One day she said to me 'will I lose my hair?'. So I said probably, yes."

Evie then made the courageous decision to chop off her hair and is now sporting a beautiful curly bob despite fighting her own battle.

The brave youngster, who is also a keen singer, has also been entertaining other patients and staff in the hospital with her talents.

The family's second devastating blow came when Evie was in hospital and doctors broke the news the donor had pulled out.

4

"It was like the diagnosis all over again. We will never know why they pulled out," Tina added.

Evie is due to start a three-month immunosuppressive therapy treatment which aims for her body to generate bone marrow.

As the treatment has only a 60 per cent success rate, Evie's family are now raising awareness about joining the stem cell donation register.

Speaking about the importance of signing up, Tina said: "I was shocked to learn that only 2 per cent of the UK population is registered on the blood stem cell register.

"It is such an easy procedure, similar to giving blood.

"It is so easy to get on the register and donate if you are a match.

Orchard Therapeutics Announces Additional Interim Results from Proof-of-Concept Study of OTL-203 for MPS-I – BioSpace

By daniellenierenberg

Data on all eight patients demonstrate sustained engraftment and supranormal IDUA enzyme expression

Translation of metabolic correction to clinical outcomes in first two patients continues to support potential of hematopoietic stem cell gene therapy in a second neurometabolic disorder

Data support planned initiation of registrational trial in 2021

BOSTON and LONDON, Sept. 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Orchard Therapeutics(Nasdaq: ORTX), a global gene therapy leader, today announced additional interim data from an ongoing proof-of-concept clinical trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of OTL-203, an investigationalex vivoautologous hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) gene therapy in development for the treatment of mucopolysaccharidosis type I (MPS-I) at theSan Raffaele Telethon Institute for Gene Therapy(SR-Tiget) inMilan, Italy. The readout from the primary endpoint at one year of follow-up is expected in 2021. Today's results are being shared virtually in an invited oral presentation at the 46th Annual Meeting of the European Society for Blood and Bone Marrow Transplantation (EBMT).

We continue to see encouraging data from the ongoing clinical trial in MPS-I, including promising preliminary clinical effects on motor development, acquisition of cognitive skilIs and growth in the first two patients that were treated now 1.5 and 2 years ago, respectively. Additionally, new preliminary analyses of radiological outcome measures suggest that treatment with OTL-203 leads to stabilization or improvement in disease-related neurological abnormalities, as measured by brain and spine MRI, which we look to confirm with longer follow-up, saidMaria Ester Bernardo, M.D., Ph.D., principal investigator at SR-Tiget. "These data, taken together with those from clinical studies of HSC gene therapy for other metabolic disorders and leukodystrophies, support the potential for this therapeutic approach to correct a wide spectrum of multisystemic manifestations of the disease, bringing clinically meaningful benefits for patients.

Interim Study Results

Eight patients with the severe Hurler subtype of MPS-I had been treated with OTL-203 in the ongoing proof-of-concept study, which completed enrollment in December 2019. As of July 2020, all patients had been followed for a minimum of six months, with the longest follow-up extending out to 24 months. Treatment with OTL-203 was generally well-tolerated with a safety profile consistent with the selected conditioning regimen. Consistent with previous analyses, treatment across all eight patients continued to demonstrate:

We continue to see positive trends in all biomarker and clinical measures as we follow patients in the OTL-203 proof of concept study for longer periods of time, saidBobby Gaspar, M.D., Ph.D., chief executive officer of Orchard. With a growing amount of data to support advancing this program, we have recently convened a panel of disease experts to develop a design for a registrational trial that we intend to take to the regulators in advance of initiating the study in 2021 and ultimately progressing towards commercialization.

About OTL-203 and MPS-I

Mucopolysaccharidosis type I (MPS-I) is a rare, inherited neurometabolic disease caused by a deficiency of the alpha-L-iduronidase (IDUA) lysosomal enzyme, which is required to break down sugar molecules called glycosaminoglycans (also known as GAGs). The accumulation of GAGs across multiple organ systems results in symptoms including neurocognitive impairment, skeletal deformity, loss of vision and hearing, and cardiovascular and pulmonary complications. MPS-I occurs at an overall estimated frequency of one in every 100,000 live births. There are three subtypes of MPS-I; approximately 60 percent of children born with MPS-I have the most severe subtype, called Hurler syndrome, and rarely live past the age of 10 when untreated.

Treatment options for MPS-I include hematopoietic stem cell transplant and chronic enzyme replacement therapy, both of which have significant limitations. Though early intervention with enzyme replacement therapy has been shown to delay or prevent some clinical features of the condition, it has only limited efficacy on neurological symptoms. OTL-203 is an investigationalex vivoautologous hematopoietic stem cell gene therapy being studied for the treatment of MPS-I. Orchard was granted an exclusive worldwide license to intellectual property rights to research, develop, manufacture and commercialize the gene therapy program for the treatment of MPS-I developed by theSan Raffaele Telethon Institute for Gene TherapyinMilan, Italy.

Bone Marrow Processing Systems Market Business Analysis, New Innovation | Share, Revenue, And Sales Till 2025 – The Scarlet

By daniellenierenberg

Bone marrowaspiration and trephine biopsy are usually performed on the back of the hipbone, or posterior iliac crest. An aspirate can also be obtained from the sternum (breastbone). For the sternal aspirate, the patient lies on their back, with a pillow under the shoulder to raise the chest. A trephine biopsy should never be performed on the sternum, due to the risk of injury to blood vessels, lungs or the heart.

First Woman May Be Cured of HIV Without a Bone Marrow Transplant – POZ

By daniellenierenberg

A California woman may be the first person to be cured of HIV without a bone marrow transplant, according to a recent report in Nature. More than 60 other so-called elite controllers, who have unusually potent immune responses to HIV, were found to have their virus sequestered in parts of their genome where it is unable to replicate.

The unusual case involves Loreen Willenberg, who acquired HIV in 1992. Her immune system has maintained control of the virus for decades without the use of antiretroviral treatment, and researchers have been unable to find any intact virus in more than 1.5 billion of her cells. Elite controllers are thought to make up less than half a percent of all people living with HIV.

I believe Loreen might indeed meet anyones definition of a cure, study coauthor Steven Deeks, MD, of the University of California at San Francisco, told POZ. Despite heroic efforts, we just could not find any virus that is able to replicate. Her immune system seems completely normal. Even her HIV antibodies levels are low, which is unprecedented in an untreated person.

Although antiretroviral therapy can keep HIV replication suppressed, the virus inserts its genetic material into the chromosomes of human cells, making it very difficult to eradicate. HIV can lie dormant in a reservoir of resting immune cells indefinitely, but when antiretrovirals are stopped and the cells become activated, they can start churning out new virus.

Previously, only two people were known to have been cured of HIV: Timothy Ray Brown, formerly know as the Berlin Patient, and a man in London. Both received bone marrow stem cell transplants from a donor with a rare genetic mutation that makes cells resistant to HIV entry. But this procedure is far too dangerous for people who dont need it to treat advanced cancer.

The new research suggests that Willenberg and some five dozen other people with long-term untreated HIV have their virus hidden away in their cells genomes in such as way that the viral genetic blueprint (known as a provirus) cant be used to produce new viral particles that can go on to infect other cells.

Xu Yu, MD, of the Ragon Institute of Massachusetts General Hospital, MIT and Harvard analyzed integrated HIV in millions of cells from 64 elite controllers and 41 typical HIV-positive people on antiretroviral therapy recruited at Mass General and San Francisco General Hospital.

In both groups, about 20% were women, the average age was approximately 56, they had been living with HIV for an average of 17 years and had undetectable virus according to standard tests for nine years. Overall, the elite controllers had a higher average CD4 count (about 900 versus 70, respectively).

The researchers used next-generation gene sequencing to characterize the participants viral blueprints, including where they were inserted into human chromosomes. They found that the elite controllers had fewer integrated proviruses, but a larger proportion of them were intact, or potentially capable of replicating. The virus in these individuals was highly consistent, without the wide variety of mutations seen in most people with HIV.

Whats more, their proviruses were integrated at distinct sites in the human genome, farther away from elements that enable viral replication. Specifically, the integrated DNA was not located near sites that switch on transcription or close to accessible chromatin, which contains histone proteins that package long DNA strands into a more compact form. The DNA must then be unwound from these proteins before it can be used to produce new virus.

These data suggest that a distinct configuration of the proviral reservoir represents a structural correlate of natural viral control, and that the quality, rather than the quantity, of viral reservoirs can be an important distinguishing feature for a functional cure of HIV-1 infection, Yu and colleagues wrote.

In a commentary accompanying the report, Nicolas Chomont, PhD, of the University of Montreal, characterized the proviruses in these elite controllers as being in a state of deep sleep compared with latent virus in typical people with HIV. This has only become apparent now because researchers have more sophisticated tools to pinpoint the location of proviruses within the genome.

It is unclear why this block and lock phenomenon happens in only a small proportion of people with HIV. Its possible that the virus ends up sequestered in these locations by chance. But the researchers think its more likely that the integrated proviruses at these sites are evolutionarily selected over time as the ones in locations more conducive to viral replication are eliminated by the immune system.

In Willenbergs case, the research team analyzed more than 1.5billion of her peripheral blood immune cells, including samples from gut tissue, where the virus often hides. Theycould not find any intact proviruses that could be used to produce new HIV. Given her absence of intact proviruses, the researcherswere unable to determine whether she ever fit the pattern of having latent HIV locked away in inaccessible locations.

Another 11 people, dubbed exceptional controllers, only had detectableprovirusesatremote sites in the genome where it could not replicate.Since this study, the researchers have discovered a couple more elite controllers who may qualify as additional cures, according to the New York Times.

This raises the possibility that a sterilizing cure of HIVmeaning complete eradicationmay be feasible in rare instances, the study authors suggested. A similar but less complete process may be at play in the subset of about 10% of people with HIV who maintain viral suppression after stopping antiretroviral therapy but who still have detectable proviruses (known as post-treatment controllers).

This research was first presented at the International AIDS Society Conference on HIV Science last summer, where Willenberg was referred to as the San Francisco Patient. Willenberg later went public with her status, and she and Yu discussed the study findings during a webinar with HIV cure advocates last November.

I broke out in tears when saw Dr. Yus final slide, said Willenberg, who over the years has participated in more than a dozen studies. I can only hope and pray that with continued dedication we can figure out how I have dumped the virus into the DNA junkyard.

The question now is whether its possible to develop treatments that could enable the millions of typical people with progressive HIV to become elite controllers like Willenberg. Chomont suggested that immune-based therapiesincluding CAR-T cellsmight be able to shrink the viral reservoir until it consists only of deeply latent proviruses that are unable to replicate.

The key question is how did her immune system achieve this remarkable state, Deeks said. We do not know. We need to find more people who are exceptional controllers like Loreen and get to work on figuring out the mechanism.

Autologous Stem Cell And Non Stem Cell Based Therapies Market to Witness Widespread Expansion During 2018-2026 – Scientect

By daniellenierenberg

Autologous stem cell and non-stem cell based therapiesinvolve an individuals cell to be cultured and then re-introduced to the donors body. These therapies do not use foreign organism cells and are therefore free from HLA incompatibility, disease transmission, and immune reactions.Increasing demand for the new therapies in the field of regenerative medicine is directly facilitating the growth of autologous stem cell and non-stem cell based therapies market. Furthermore, since the risk to transplantation surgeries is significantly reduced in these therapies, they are increasingly being preferred for treatment of bone marrow diseases, aplastic anemia, multiple myeloma, non-Hodgkins lymphoma, Hodgkins lymphoma, Parkinsons disease, thalassemia, and diabetes.

Get Access to sample pages @https://www.trendsmarketresearch.com/report/sample/3065

Moreover, rising incidents of cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases along with growing geriatric population is another factor attributed for its high growth. However, side-effects of autologous stem cell and non-stem cell based therapies such as nausea, infection, hair loss, vomiting, diarrhea, etc. are expected to affect the market to an extent. High cost is another factor that can act as challenge to autologous stem cell and non-stem cell based therapies market. In spite of this, less risk post transplantation surgeries and favorable tax reimbursement policies are anticipated to reduce the impact of these limitation during the forecast period.Autologous stem cell and non-stem cell based therapies market can be segmented on the basis of application, end-user, and region.

In terms of application, the autologous stem cell and non-stem cell based therapies market can be segmented into blood pressure (BP) monitoring devices, intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring devices, and pulmonary pressure monitoring devices. In terms of end-user, the market can be segmented into ambulatory surgical center and hospitals. By region, the market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa and South America. Amongst all, Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the most attractive market owing to favorable reimbursement policies in the region.The players operating in autologous stem cell and non-stem cell based therapies market are limited. They are consistently involved in research and development activities for product development to keep up with the growing competition, thereby aiding the growth of autologous stem cell and non-stem cell based therapies market across the world.

bluebird bio Presents New Results from Clinical Development Program of elivaldogene autotemcel (eli-cel, Lenti-D) Gene Therapy for Cerebral…

By daniellenierenberg

DetailsCategory: DNA RNA and CellsPublished on Sunday, 30 August 2020 13:01Hits: 250

Long-term results from Phase 2/3 Starbeam study (ALD-102/LTF-304) suggest durability of response post eli-cel with all 20 patients who were free of major functional disabilities (MFDs) at two years (out of 23 evaluable patients) remaining MFD-free through last available follow-up, including all 10 patients who reached at least Year 5 follow-up visit

31 out of 32 patients in ALD-102 had stable Neurologic Function Scores following treatment with eli-cel, including 24 patients with a score of zero as of the last available visit

In clinical studies of eli-cel to date, there have been no reports of graft failure, graft rejection, graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), replication competent lentivirus, or insertional oncogenesis

Company on track to submit Marketing Authorization Application in EU by year-end 2020, and Biologics License Application in U.S. in mid-2021

CAMBRIDGE, MA, USA I August 29, 2020 I bluebird bio, Inc. (Nasdaq: BLUE) announced updated results from the clinical development program for its investigational elivaldogene autotemcel (eli-cel, Lenti-D) gene therapy in patients with cerebral adrenoleukodystrophy (CALD), including long-term results from the Phase 2/3 Starbeam study (ALD-102/LTF-304) and data from the Phase 3 ALD-104 study. These data were presented today at the 46th Annual Meeting of the European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT 2020), taking place virtually from August 29 - September 1, 2020.

CALD is a fatal neurodegenerative disease primarily affecting young boys. Currently, the only treatment available is allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT), which comes with associated, significant risks, including transplant-related mortality, graft failure or rejection, and graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), said David Davidson, M.D., chief medical officer, bluebird bio. Eighty-seven percent of patients in our Phase 2/3 Starbeam study of eli-cel are alive and free of major functional disabilities (MFDs) at 24 months or more of follow-up. Importantly, there were no reports of graft failure, graft rejection, or GVHD. It is gratifying to see the consistent outcomes with eli-cel and the durability of the treatment effect demonstrated in the children participating in our long-term follow-up study including 10 boys who have now reached at least their Year 5 follow-up visit.

Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) is a rare, X-linked metabolic disorder that is estimated to affect one in 21,000 male newborns worldwide. ALD is caused by mutations in the ABCD1 gene that affect the production of adrenoleukodystrophy protein (ALDP) and subsequently cause toxic accumulation of very long-chain fatty acids (VLCFAs) primarily in the adrenal cortex and white matter of the brain and spinal cord.

Approximately 40% of boys with adrenoleukodystrophy will develop CALD, the most severe form of ALD. CALD is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that involves breakdown of myelin, the protective sheath of the nerve cells in the brain that are responsible for thinking and muscle control. Symptoms of CALD usually occur in early childhood and progress rapidly, if untreated, leading to severe loss of neurologic function, and eventual death, in most patients. CALD is associated with six MFDs, which severely compromise a patients ability to function independently: loss of communication, cortical blindness, need for tube feeding, total incontinence, wheelchair dependence, and complete loss of voluntary movement. Nearly half of boys with CALD who do not receive treatment will die within five years of symptom onset.

Patients with CALD experience a rapid decrease in neurologic function after the initial onset of clinical symptoms, so early diagnosis and treatment is critical in order to stop the disease progression and preserve their neurological function. In the Phase 2/3 Starbeam study, 31 of 32 patients had a stable neurologic function score, suggesting that disease progression had stabilized and minimal neurological function was lost, following eli-cel infusion, said Dr. Jrn-Sven Khl, Department of Pediatric Oncology, Hematology and Hemostaseology, Center for Women's and Children's Medicine, University Hospital Leipzig. These results presented at EBMT 2020 are very encouraging and suggest treatment with eli-cel may prevent neurological decline in boys with CALD.

Eli-cel is a one-time investigational gene therapy designed to address the underlying genetic cause of CALD by adding functional copies of the ABCD1 gene into a patients own hematopoietic (blood) stem cells (HSCs) that have been transduced ex vivo with the Lenti-D lentiviral vector (LVV). The addition of a functional gene allows patients to produce the ALDP, which is thought to break down the toxic accumulation of VLCFAs in the brain. There is no need for donor HSCs from another person, as is required for allo-HSCT.

Starbeam Study (ALD-102)/Long-Term Follow-Up Study (LTF-304)

The ALD-102 study has completed enrollment. All reported data below are as of January 2020 and reflect a total population of 32 patients with a median follow-up time of 30.0 months (9.1 70.7 months).

Of the 32 patients who have received eli-cel as of January 2020, 20 have completed ALD-102 and enrolled in a long-term follow-up study (LTF-304). Nine additional patients continue to be followed in ALD-102 and have not reached 24 months post-treatment. As previously reported, two patients withdrew from the study at investigator discretion, and one experienced rapid disease progression early on-study resulting in MFDs and death. To date, 104.3 patient-years of follow-up have been reported for ALD-102 and LTF-304.

The primary efficacy endpoint in the study is the proportion of patients who are alive and free of MFDs at Month 24. Of those patients who have or would have reached Month 24, 87% have met the primary endpoint and continue to be alive and MFD-free at more than two years of follow-up (N=20/23). Fourteen patients have at least four years of follow-up, including 10 patients who have reached at least their Year 5 follow-up visit. The nine patients from ALD-102 that have not reached Month 24 have shown no evidence of MFDs.

Data on several secondary and exploratory efficacy outcomes are reported, including changes in neurologic function score (NFS), a 25-point score used to evaluate the severity of gross neurologic dysfunction across 15 symptoms in six categories; resolution of gadolinium enhancement (GdE), an indicator of active inflammation in the brain; and change in Loes score, an MRI measurement of white matter changes in CALD. Of the 32 patients treated, 31 had stable NFS following treatment with eli-cel, defined as NFS <4, without a change of >3 from baseline, and 24 patients maintained an NFS of 0. An NFS of 0 indicates that there are no concerns with the neurologic functions that are assessed on the 25-point scale. Loes scores generally stabilized within 12-24 months and GdE was no longer seen in most patients following eli-cel treatment.

The primary safety endpoint is the proportion of patients who experience acute (Grade 2) or chronic GvHD by Month 24. GvHD is a condition that may occur after an allo-HSCT, where the donated cells view the recipients body as foreign and attack the body. No events of acute or chronic GvHD have been reported post-eli-cel treatment. There have been no reports of graft failure or graft rejection.

In addition, there have been no cases of replication competent lentivirus or insertional oncogenesis to date. Integration site analysis (ISA) was conducted to determine the pattern of integration post-eli-cel infusion and assess whether dominant or expanding clones were present. In one patient, now enrolled in LTF-304 for long-term follow up, a case of benign clonal expansion was observed with three separate integrations in the DNA of the cell at ACER3, RFX3, and MECOM. As of the patients Month 62 visit in March 2020, the patient remained clinically stable. Bone marrow analyses showed no dysplasia (abnormal cell growth) or molecular abnormalities.

The treatment regimen, comprising mobilization/apheresis, conditioning, and eli-cel infusion, had a safety and tolerability profile primarily reflective of the known effects of mobilization/apheresis and conditioning. In ALD-102, as previously reported, three adverse events (AE) were considered possibly related to drug product and include one serious AE (SAE), BK viral cystitis (N=1, SAE, Grade 3), and two non-serious AEs, vomiting (N=2, Grade 1). All three AEs resolved using standard measures.

ALD-104 Study

bluebird bio is currently enrolling patients for ALD-104, a Phase 3 study designed to assess the efficacy and safety of eli-cel in patients with CALD after myeloablative conditioning using busulfan and fludarabine, a different chemotherapy conditioning regimen than what is used in ALD-102 (busulfan and cyclophosphamide). The primary efficacy endpoint is the proportion of patients who are alive and free of MFDs at Month 24, and the primary safety endpoint is the proportion of patients with neutrophil engraftment after eli-cel infusion. All reported data below are as of February 2020.

In ALD-104, the 13 patients currently on study have a median of 6.1 months of follow-up to date (min-max: 2.2 10.3 months). All 13 patients achieved neutrophil engraftment and 12/13 evaluable patients had platelet engraftment (platelet engraftment pending in one patient as of data cut date). Due to the limited duration of follow-up, only safety data are being presented.

No events of acute or chronic GvHD have been reported and there have been no reports of graft failure, graft rejection, cases of insertional oncogenesis, or replication competent lentivirus.

The treatment regimen, comprising mobilization/apheresis, conditioning, and eli-cel infusion had a safety and tolerability profile primarily reflective of the known effects of mobilization/apheresis and conditioning. In ALD-104, two AEs of pancytopenia were considered possibly related to eli-cel. These two ongoing AEs were deemed as suspected unexpected serious adverse reactions (SUSARs) by the principal investigator and were diagnosed approximately two months post-eli-cel infusion in two patients (one Grade 2 and one Grade 3). An additional AE was ongoing as of February 2020, a Grade 3 SAE of transverse myelitis that was diagnosed in the presence of viral infection (adenovirus and rhinovirus/enterovirus positivity) approximately six months after eli-cel infusion and deemed unrelated to eli-cel.

About elivaldogene autotemcel (eli-cel, formerly Lenti-D)

In July 2020, the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) granted an accelerated assessment to eli-cel gene therapy for cerebral adrenoleukodystrophy (CALD). bluebird bio is currently on track to submit the Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) in the EU for eli-cel for CALD by year-end 2020, and the Biologics License Application (BLA) in the U.S. in mid-2021.

bluebird bio is currently enrolling patients for a Phase 3 study (ALD-104) designed to assess the efficacy and safety of eli-cel after myeloablative conditioning using busulfan and fludarabine in patients with CALD.

Additionally, bluebird bio is conducting a long-term safety and efficacy follow-up study (LTF-304) for patients who have been treated with eli-cel for CALD and completed two years of follow-up in bluebird bio-sponsored studies.

The Phase 2/3 Starbeam study (ALD-102) has completed enrollment.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) accepted eli-cel gene therapy for the treatment of CALD into its Priorities Medicines scheme (PRIME) in July 2018, and previously granted Orphan Medicinal Product designation to eli-cel.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted eli-cel Orphan Drug status, Rare Pediatric Disease designation, and Breakthrough Therapy designation for the treatment of CALD.

Eli-cel is not approved for any indication in any geography.

About CALD Early Diagnosis

Early diagnosis of CALD is important, as the outcome of available treatment varies with the clinical stage of the disease. Newborn screening for ALD is a critical enabler of early diagnosis and thus of successful treatment of ALD. Once a patient has been diagnosed with ALD, regular MRI scans are critical to detect white matter changes indicative of progression to CALD.

In the U.S., newborn screening for ALD was added to the Recommended Universal Screening Panel in February 2016 and is currently active in 17 states, accounting for > 58 percent of U.S. newborns. Outside the U.S., the Minister of Health in the Netherlands has approved the addition of ALD to their newborn screening program. Even though ALD newborn screening has not been implemented in most EU countries, efforts to begin pilot programs are slowly progressing.
