The day before an FDA advisory committee meeting about the safety of AAV vector-based gene therapies, Astellas reported liver damage in a patient in its trial of AT132.
Advisory committee will discuss five types of toxicity risks with adeno-associated virus vector-based gene therapy products at a two-day meeting in September, which follows some recent high-profile instances of adverse events that have delayed development programs.
Recent adverse events are ‘speed bumps’ that need to be worked around, biologics center head Peter Marks says; Morgan Stanley’s Peter Hwang asserts high-profile safety issues have added to unpredictability of gene therapy development, dampening investor enthusiasm for the field.
