Today, biopharmaceutical company Arthrogen announced the approval for the ART-I02 gene therapy clinical phase Ib study in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. The clinical trial will focus on rheumatoid arthritis patients who, despite multiple treatments with existing medicines, still suffer from inflamed joints. The new approach is unique in that it aims to stimulate the local production of an anti-inflammatory protein within the inflamed joint by means of a single treatment. A virus is used to deliver a piece of genetic material into the joint, which will then produce its own anti-inflammatory protein in the inflamed area, only when needed. It is expected that one single injection will have a long-lasting effect. This initial trial will be used to examine safety and the first signs of effects. The study will be executed by the Centre for Human Drug Research (CHDR) in Leiden in close collaboration with University Medical Centers in the Netherlands.. Read more
