Scribe Therapeutics to Present on Advances in CRISPR Genome and Epigenome Editing at the 2024 American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy (ASGCT) Annual Meeting

Company will highlight developments enabled by its CRISPR by Designapproach to engineer novel in vivo genetic medicines, including for ophthalmic diseases

Scribe Therapeutics Inc. (Scribe), a genetic medicines company unlocking the potential of CRISPR to transform human health, today announced its participation in the 27th American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy (ASGCT) Annual Meeting, taking place at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, MD, and virtually from May 7-11, 2024.

Scribe will deliver two oral presentations and one poster presentation showcasing the latest developments in its CRISPR X-Editor (XE) and Epigenetic Long-Term X-Repressors (ELXR) technologies enabled by its CRISPR by DesignTM approach. The company’s presentations will include data demonstrating the potent editing activity of XE in non-human primates, the potential for XE to address P23H.RHO-related autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa (adRP), and the comprehensive engineering approach to creating highly potent ELXRs.

More details on each presentation are listed below and the full abstracts are available on the ASGCT meeting website
