Aggressive treatment of T3 and T4 NSCLC with induction chemoradiotherapy may improve survival

The presentation will be made at the 18th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) which is being held in Boston from February 27 to March 2, 2011.  In a late-afternoon session on Wednesday, March 2, 2011, Dr. June will present further data from Sangamo's Phase 1 trials of SB-728-T and Paula Cannon, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Molecular Microbiology & Immunology at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California (USC), will present preclinical data from Sangamo's program of ZFN-modification of the CCR5 receptor in hematopoietic stem cells.  Also at CROI, Sangamo's collaborators at the University of Pennsylvania will describe preclinical data from a program to modify the CXCR4 gene in human CD4+ T-cells. More information about these presentations will be available later in the week.

"These data represent the beginning of a new hope for HIV therapy," said Jacob Lalezari, M.D., the Director of Quest Clinical Research, Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at Mount Zion Hospital, UCSF, and one of the principal investigators of the study. "This approach aims to provide a protected reservoir of HIV-resistant T-cells that are available to fight infections including the virus.  I look forward to completing the follow-up of this initial study and to working with Sangamo as it expands these studies to include the full range of HIV-infected populations."
