WFH supports MASAC’s recommendation on the risks of gene therapy trials for hemophilia

On December 6, 2018, MASAC—the NHF’s Medical and Scientific Advisory Council—published recommendation #254, entitled, “MASAC Document Regarding Risks of Gene Therapy Trials for Hemophilia”.

MASAC’s recommendation offers a comprehensive view of many aspects to consider in gene therapy trials.  It supports human clinical trials with gene therapy while emphasizing the importance of identifying and mitigating risks to patients, of addressing the unknown risks during the clinical trial process and of continued and open communication of all progress to the hemophilia community.
