EdiGene is a clinical-stage, gene-editing company, mainly focused on the development of novel therapies for haematopoietic diseases and cancer. The company holds licenses on proprietary CRISPR-Cas and RNA-editing platforms. The company's most advanced programme is ET-01 which has entered Phase I clinical development. This therapy is developed for the treatment of beta-thalassemia, and thus, is competing with similar programmes from CRISPR Therapeutics/Vertex Pharmaceuticals and Graphite Bio. The company is also developing next-generation CAR-T cell therapies, and these are still at pre-clinical stage.
