Intellia suggests ATTR amyloidosis gene editing treatment has over a year of durability as it gears up for PhIII
Intellia on Thursday presented new results for its gene editing treatment in 65 patients with ATTR amyloidosis — a condition in which misfolded proteins build up in the body — and the data suggest that the treatment can lower levels of the protein in the blood by around 90%.
