Professor Alan Boyd will be chairing the Audentes Symposium session at the American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ASGCT) annual meeting in Washington on the 1st May 2019.

Audentes Therapeutics, Inc. is a leading AAV-based genetic medicines company focused on developing and commercialising innovative products for serious rare neuromuscular diseases, will be giving a number of planned presentations at the 22nd Annual Meeting of the American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ASGCT) in Washington, D.C., including new data from ASPIRO, the Phase 1/2 Clinical Trial of AT132 in patients with X-linked Myotubular Myopathy (XLMTM).

The oral presentation will be given by Perry B. Shieh, M.D., Ph.D., Associate Professor of Neurology at the Department of Neurology at UCLA Medical Center and will be held during the Plenary Session “Presidential Symposium & Presentation of the Top Abstracts,” scheduled to begin at 2:15 pm ET.

The presentation by Dr. Shieh will include new data from ASPIRO, with up to 48-weeks of follow-up in all patients enrolled in dose Cohort 1 (1×1014 vg/kg), and up to 24-weeks in the earliest patients enrolled in dose Cohort 2 (3×1014 vg/kg).

“We remain highly encouraged by the emerging profile of AT132 and are looking forward to sharing new results from ASPIRO,” stated Matthew R. Patterson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  “2019 is a critical year for the development of AT132, with important next steps that include optimal dose selection and final agreement on regulatory submission pathways in the US and Europe, which we expect to achieve in the third quarter.”

Audentes has a range of additional presentations planned during the conference, including a sponsored symposium that will provide an in-depth review of the new data from ASPIRO.

Following are details for each presentation:
