Solid Biosciences to Present at Upcoming Scientific Conferences
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., May 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Solid Biosciences Inc. (Nasdaq: SLDB), a life sciences company focused on advancing meaningful therapies for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (Duchenne), today announced that the Company will participate at the following upcoming scientific conferences:
16th International Congress of Neuromuscular Diseases – May 21-22 & 28-29
Perry Shieh, MD, Professor of Neurology and Pediatrics at the University of California, Los Angeles, and an IGNITE DMD investigator, will present data from the ongoing Phase I/II IGNITE DMD clinical trial of SGT-001 microdystrophin gene therapy in patients with Duchenne, which were previously presented in a Company business update on May 14, 2021. This includes long-term biopsy data collected from patients 4-6 at the 2E14 vg/kg dose level. Analyses of the biopsies, taken 2 years, 1.5 years and 1-year post-dosing, respectively, indicate evidence of durable and widespread expression of the microdystrophin protein. The presentation will also include a one-year safety and efficacy evaluation of those patients and patients previously dosed at the 5E13 vg/kg level.
The digital poster, abstract number 747, “IGNITE-DMD: One-year Safety and Efficacy Evaluation of SGT-001 Microdystrophin Gene Therapy for DMD,” will be available to participants, on the congress website, for the duration of the meeting. Dr. Shieh will accept questions in the ePoster chat during the live congress dates.
