Beta Thalassemia clinical trials at UCSF
4 in progress, 3 open to eligible people

  • A Study Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of the LentiGlobin® BB305 Drug Product in Subjects With Transfusion-Dependent β-Thalassemia

    open to eligible people ages up to 50 years

    This is a single-arm, multi-site, single-dose, Phase 3 study in approximately 15 subjects ≤50 years of age with transfusion-dependent β-thalassemia (TDT), who have a β0/β0, β0/IVS-I-110, or IVS-I-110/IVS-I-110 genotype. The study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) using LentiGlobin BB305 Drug Product.

  • A Study to Assess the Safety, Tolerability, and Efficacy of ST-400 for Treatment of Transfusion-Dependent Beta-thalassemia (TDT)

    open to eligible people ages 18-40

    This is a single-arm, multi-site, single-dose, Phase 1/2 study to assess ST-400 in 6 subjects with transfusion-dependent β-thalassemia (TDT) who are ≥18 and ≤40 years of age. ST-400 is a type of investigational therapy that consists of gene edited cells. ST-400 is composed of the patient's own blood stem cells which are genetically modified in the laboratory using Sangamo's zinc finger nuclease (ZFN) technology to disrupt a precise and specific sequence of the enhancer of the BCL11A gene (which normally suppresses fetal hemoglobin production in erythrocytes). This process is intended to boost fetal hemoglobin (HbF), which can substitute for reduced or absent adult (defective) hemoglobin. ST-400 is then infused back into the patient after receiving conditioning chemotherapy to make room for the new cells in the bone marrow, with the aim of producing new erythrocytes with increased amounts of HbF. The primary objective is to understand safety and tolerability of ST-400, and secondary objectives are to assess the effects on HbF levels and transfusion requirements.

  • Study of PTG-300 in Non-Transfusion Dependent and Transfusion-Dependent Beta-Thalassemia Subjects With Chronic Anemia

    open to eligible people ages 12-65

    This is a Phase 2 open-label, single-arm design study with dose escalation by subject cohort . The study is designed to monitor the PTG-300 safety profile, to obtain preliminary evidence of efficacy of PTG-300 for the treatment in β-thalassemia.

  • An Efficacy and Safety Study of Luspatercept (ACE-536) Versus Placebo in Adults Who Require Regular Red Blood Cell Transfusions Due to Beta (β) Thalassemia

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a Phase 3, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, multicenter study to determine the efficacy and safety of luspatercept (ACE-536) plus Best supportive care (BSC) versus placebo plus BSC in adults who require regular red blood cell transfusion due to (β)-thalassemia. The study is divided into the Screening/Run-in Period, double-blind Treatment Period, double-blind Long-term Treatment Period, and Post-treatment Follow-up Period.
