CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LogicBio Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq:LOGC), a genome editing company focused on developing medicines to durably treat rare diseases in pediatric patients, today announced upcoming presentations at the European Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ESGCT) 27th Annual Congress, held in Barcelona, Spain, October 22-25, 2019.

“We are thrilled to be presenting positive data on our Next Generation Capsid Development Program on the anniversary of our collaboration with Children’s Medical Research Institute of Australia, a leader in gene therapy, childhood cancer, embryology and neurological diseases. The goal of the collaboration is to develop novel, synthetic adeno-associated virus (AAV) capsids which are highly tropic for human tissues and optimized for manufacturing. These data give us further confidence that we can improve the performance of current AAV vectors, expanding our pipeline and strengthening our GeneRide platform,” said Fred Chereau, CEO of LogicBio. “Further, we are pleased to present additional preclinical data further supporting the durability of expression, compared to canonical gene therapy, in one of our GeneRide platform programs and to have been invited to speak on AAV manufacturing.”
