ZUG, Switzerland and CAMBRIDGE, Mass., August 7, 2018 -- CRISPR Therapeutics (NASDAQ: CRSP), a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing transformative gene-based medicines for serious diseases, today reported financial results for the second quarter 2018 and commented on recent accomplishments and clinical development plans.

 

“In the first half of 2018, we continued to drive rapid and meaningful progress across our hemoglobinopathies program and our immuno-oncology platform,” commented Samarth Kulkarni, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of CRISPR Therapeutics. “We obtained approval of Clinical Trial Applications (CTA) in multiple countries for both β-thalassemia and sickle cell disease (SCD) and we continue to work closely with various clinical sites to initiate these trials. In parallel, we are working diligently with the FDA and have a clear path to resolve the current clinical hold of the Investigational New Drug application (IND) in the U.S. for SCD. In immuno-oncology, a key area of focus for us, preclinical studies have begun, and we look forward to initiating clinical trials early next year.”

 

Dr. Kulkarni continued, “As we move to the second half of the year, our focus remains on the execution of our development programs to bring us closer to our goal of providing transformational medicines to patients with significant unmet medical needs.  We look forward to continuing our progress across key areas of our pipeline throughout the remainder of 2018.”

 

Recent Highlights and Outlook

 

 

Obtained approvals of CTAs in multiple countries for CTX001 in β-thalassemia and SCD. CTX001 is an investigational autologous gene-edited hematopoietic stem cell therapy for patients suffering from severe hemoglobinopathies. CRISPR, together with its partner, Vertex, has obtained approvals of CTAs in multiple countries for both β-thalassemia and SCD and remain on track to initiate a Phase 1/2 trial to assess the safety and efficacy of CTX001 in patients with transfusion dependent β-thalassemia later this year.
