CAMBRIDGE, Mass. May 9, 2022 – bluebird bio, Inc. (NASDAQ: BLUE) (“bluebird bio” or the “Company”) today reported financial results and business highlights for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022, and shared recent operational progress.

“For more than a decade, bluebird bio has helped chart the path for the field of gene therapy and today, we are closer than ever before to realizing our mission of bringing potentially curative gene therapies to patients and their families,” said Andrew Obenshain, chief executive officer, bluebird bio. “We have taken action to sharpen our focus and our finances, as the FDA completes its review of the beti-cel and eli-cel BLAs, and we prepare for the launch of two gene therapies in the second half of the year. In parallel, we are actively collecting the manufacturing comparability data required for lovo-cel and remain focused on submitting our BLA for sickle cell disease to the FDA in Q1 2023.”


ADVISORY COMMITTEE MEETING ON JUNE 9-10, 2022 – On April 13, the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) confirmed its plans to review betibeglogene autotemcel (beti-cel) and elivaldogene autotemcel (eli-cel) in an FDA Cellular, Tissue and Gene Therapies Advisory Committee Meeting that will take place over two days on June 9-10, 2022. The advisory committee will discuss the efficacy and safety data supporting the benefit/risk of beti-cel and eli-cel respectively, as well as safety information relevant to both therapies. If approved, beti-cel and eli-cel would be the Company’s first FDA approved therapies as an independent severe genetic disease company. An overview of the agenda was included in the Federal Register announcement posted on April 13. The full agenda will be determined by the FDA and included in briefing materials that will be posted by the FDA closer to the date of the advisory committee meeting.

CONTINUED PROGRESS TOWARD BLA SUBMISSION – bluebird bio has enrolled more than half of the patients in the HGB-210 study that will be needed to support manufacturing data requirements for the lovotibeglogene autotemcel (lovo-cel) biologics licensing application (BLA) and the Company is on track to submit a BLA to the FDA for sickle cell disease (SCD) in the first quarter of 2023. As previously communicated, the Company has treated all patients in HGB-206 Group C who will form the primary basis of efficacy for BLA submission, with the demonstration of analytical comparability and validation of the commercial manufacturing process as the key remaining actions prior to submission of the planned BLA. Enrollment and dosing for patients 18 and older are continuing in the HGB-210 study and the Company remains in active dialogue with the FDA about the resolution of the partial clinical hold for patients under 18.

RESTRUCTURING UPDATE – On April 5, 2022, bluebird bio announced a comprehensive restructuring intended to deliver up to $160 million in cost savings over the next two years,
