May 11th, 2021 - A novel gene therapy for severe combined immunodeficiency from adenosine deaminase deficiency (ADA-SCID) restored immune cell counts without death or need for enzyme replacement therapy, researchers reported. Survival without needing to re-initiat...
Apr 4th, 2016 - Editor’s note: The European Commission approved the gene therapy Strimvelis (GlaxoSmithKline) on May 27, 2016, to treat children with the very rare disease Severe Combined Immunodeficiency due to Adenosine Deaminase deficiency (ADA-SCID), accordin...
Jul 21st, 2010 - Action Points Explain to interested patients and parents that gene therapy for severe combined immunodeficiency disease (SCID) was shown to be safe for up to 10 years in a small number of patients with the lethal genetic disease. But caution that ...
Jan 28th, 2009 - Action Points Explain to interested patients that this study found that replacing a defective gene provided improvements in the immune systems of almost all of the children with severe combined immunodeficiency caused by lack of adenosine deaminas...
