News: Promising Results on Gene Therapy for Congestive Heart Failure
San Diego-based Renova Therapeutics reported that its RT-100 gene therapy treatment for patients with reduced left-ventricular ejection fraction congestive heart failure (CHF) is proving safe and effective. The treatment involves delivering a therapeutic gene encoding adenylyl clyclase type 6 (AC6) directly into the heart via a modified adenovirus. It is a single-dose procedure done in an outpatient setting. Reporting on the results of a multi-center, placebo-controlled Phase 2 trial, company co-founder Kirk Hammond, MD, said the therapy showed a strong safety profile and clear dose response. The study assessed the safety of various doses of RT-100 in people with CHF.
