SHANGHAI and CLINTON (NJ), May 03, 2023 – HuidaGene Therapeutics (辉大基因; HuidaGene), a global clinical-stage genome-editing company focused on developing CRISPR-based programmable genomic medicine, today announced nineteen (19) presentations on Company’s various gene replacement and gene-editing platforms to unlock the full potential of genome medicines at the upcoming American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy (ASGCT) Annual Meeting taking place in Los Angeles from May 16-20, 2023.

 

“This is the first time that HuidaGene has participated in ASGCT since the Company was founded 4 years ago. With the 100% acceptance rate for the 19 abstracts including 4 oral presentations, our presence at ASGCT showcases our leadership of technology advancement in gene replacement and genome-editing therapies to address their challenges and limitations. These presentations underscore our commitment to the unmet needs for patients and families living with devastating diseases around the world,” said Xuan Yao, Ph.D., Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of HuidaGene.

 

“Based on our unique HG-PRECISE® platform, our team has developed various new genome editing tools (hfCas13X/Y, hfCas12Max, and eRBE etc), which not only have independent IP rights but also have advantages such as smaller size, higher editing efficiency and higher specificity. Therefore, our independently-developed genetic tools demonstrate improved editing efficiency and reduced off-target effects while making gene-editing therapy more effective, safer, and accessible to broader populations living with devastating diseases worldwide,” stated Hui Yang, Ph.D., Co-Founder and Chief Scientific Advisor of HuidaGene. “I look forward to attending this international forum with my team to share the newest gene-editing advancement.”

 

HuidaGene’s presentations at 26th ASGCT Annual Meeting include:
