AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, March 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- uniQure N.V. (Nasdaq: QURE), a leader in human gene therapy, and Chiesi Farmaceutici S.p.A. ("Chiesi"), a leading international pharmaceutical company, today announced initial analysis of retrospectively collected individual patient data from LPLD patients treated with Glybera®. The analysis covers follow-up data for up to six years post treatment for 13 patients, all of whom met indication requirements for the current labeling of Glybera in the EU. This analysis represents an extension of the case note review which formed a part of the data package upon which the European Commission approved Glybera in October 2012 under exceptional circumstances for the treatment of a subset of patients with lipoprotein lipase deficiency, or LPLD, a potentially life-threatening, orphan metabolic disease. Glybera currently is not approved for use outside of the European Union.
