Freeline publishes preclinical proof of concept data for FLT190, its AAV gene therapy candidate for Fabry disease, in the Nature Journal Gene Therapy

Freeline Therapeutics has announced the publication of preclinical proof-of-concept data for its gene therapy candidate for Fabry disease, FLT190, in the Nature journal Gene Therapy. Fabry disease is a debilitating genetic disorder in which an enzyme deficiency leads to a harmful build-up of fat in the cells that causes progressive organ damage and can result in early death.

“People living with Fabry disease can experience debilitating symptoms and disease progression, even with current treatments. There is a pressing need for therapies with more lasting efficacy that are less burdensome on Fabry families. We are encouraged by these preclinical data that support our ongoing Phase 1/2 clinical trial of FLT190 and our belief in FLT190 as a potential life-changing, one-time therapy for people with Fabry disease.”

Pamela Foulds, M.D., Chief Medical Officer at Freeline

Freeline is a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing transformative gene therapies for people with inherited systemic debilitating diseases. In 2020, they announced their IPO on Nasdaq which raised $158.8m.
