Sangamo BioSciences and Collaborators Present Data in Fifteen Presentations Highlighting Broad Therapeutic Applications of ZFP Technology
Date:5/24/2010

RICHMOND, Calif., May 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sangamo BioSciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: SGMO) announced today that data from research and preclinical programs focused on the development of zinc finger DNA-binding protein (ZFP) Therapeutics™ were described in fifteen presentations given by Sangamo scientists and collaborators at the 13th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ASGCT).  The meeting was held in Washington, DC from May 17-22, 2010.

"Sangamo's ZFP technology provides an exciting new approach for the development of novel human therapeutics," said Luigi Naldini, M.D., Ph.D., Director of the San Raffaele Telethon Institute for Gene Therapy, Milan, and the principal investigator on several papers presented at the meeting. "ZFP nucleases (ZFNs) enable us to edit the human genome with unprecedented specificity and efficiency. This opens the way to correction of inherited mutations, a potentially revolutionary approach as it can restore a gene's function while preserving its natural regulation, likely overcoming the risks associated with random gene addition approaches. We are using this technology to investigate novel therapies for monogenic diseases and cancer."

The presentations made at the ASGCT meeting covered research and preclinical data from Sangamo's programs and collaborations in human therapeutics and technology development in primary human cells and stem cells.  Therapeutic areas included ZFN-based approaches to infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS and cytomegalovirus (CMV), monogenic diseases such as sickle cell anemia and epidermolysi
