Is the same GMO been notified elsewhere by the same notifier? No Has the same GMO been notified elsewhere by the same notifier? Yes If yes, notification number(s): B/DE/18/PEI3279 (CTX001-111); B/DE/19/PEI3506 (CTX001-121); GMO characterization GMO is a: Other Identity of the GMO: The GMO/IMP (CTX001) consists of subject autologous peripheral blood-derived CD34+ human hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (hHSPCs) modified ex vivo using the CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing technology. The CRISPR-Cas9 editing components are transiently introduced into the target cell population by electroporation as a ribonucleoprotein complex consisting of Cas9 and a gRNA that targets the erythroid lineage-specific enhancer of the BCL11A gene. This process does not use plasmid or viral vectors. The CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing technology is intended to disrupt the erythroid lineage-specific enhancer of the BCL11A gene on chromosome 2 in a site-specific and permanent fashion in order to reactivate transcription and expression of γ-globin, resulting in increased levels of fetal hemoglobin (HbF) for the treatment of β-thalassemia and sickle cell disease. The cells will be used only for therapeutic purposes in the same subject from whom the cells were obtained (autologous application).
